Joining Jesh (St. Germains) for SEASONS
Way back in 2012 I had a post about a Giant Potato
sighting and a missed opportunity and a save by a friend.
Guess what? - The Potato was back!
Yesterday I was driving past the local grocery store (Harvest Foods
) that we shop at and low and behold there was the Potato truck in their parking lot. I hurried home to get my mom, Coleen and of course my camera and back we all went to take some photos.
So without further ado I give you...Spuddy Buddy and the Famous Idaho Potato Tour. - Lots of photos - Be sure to click to enlarge.
I should have moved further away because I couldn't get the entire truck into the picture.
Coleen next to the potato.
Of course I wanted in on the fun so I had Coleen take my picture.
Another view of the potato and truck from a different angle.
Now for a few details of the truck...
A closer view of the potato and it's chain.
The cab of the truck
One of the logo's on the truck. - The funny part is that people see the words,
"It's Real" and think that the actual potato is a real potato!
Where you can find more information.
Some fun potato facts listed on the back of the truck.
You'd think people would realize this fact but I know - "legalities."
Finally a couple of postcards we were given inside the store that list fun facts about the potato. - My favorite: If this were a real potato and you baked it, it would take 2 years and 9 months for it to bake!
Hope you have enjoyed my potato post.
