Made in the U.S.A, Born In America, As American as Apple Pie, we’ve all heard those slogans right? But were these things actually first made in America?

APPLE PIE: NO: The first apple pies were made in Britain in 1589.

AUTOMOBILE: NO:  It was Carl Benz who patented the automobile in 1886. Ransom Olds later introduced the first commercial automobiles in America, followed by Henry Ford years later.

HOT DOGS: NO: The hot dog actually originated in Europe, and then butchers brought the idea  to the U.S. late in the 19th century.
