Save room for March's best national food holidays: Pancakes, meatballs and potato chips

WATCH | Make room for March's best national food holidays, which have pop-culture ties to "Chappelle's Show," "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and "The Simpsons."

March 7 is National Pancake Day. International House of Pancakes was founded in 1958.

"Chappelle's Show" re-enacted the time Prince served pancakes after winning a basketball game.

No word on whether Prince's pancakes were unicorn-themed, but it wouldn't be surprising.

March 9 is National Meatball Day.

Two "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" movies combined to gross more than $517 million worldwide, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

While the meatball is culturally ubiquitous, its historical origins are unknown.

March 14 is National Potato Chip Day. Dipping them in dark chocolate is a stroke of genius.

Homer eats chips in space

On "The Simpsons," Homer Simpson ruins a NASA mission when he opens a bag of ruffled potato chips, which, despite a breathtaking view of the earth below, he described as the "most awe-inspiring sight I have ever seen; giver of life; mother of us all."

An early recipe for potato chips appears in a 19th-century British cookbook.
