Seasons - That's One Big Spud!

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."

"Spuddy Buddy"

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. 


  1. Wow that's one big potato. Can I have the french fries now? Having Colleen in the picture makes shows the prospective. Glad you took pieces of the truck I like them as much as the potato

  2. LOL, now that would make a lot of mashed potatoes. Fun photos. Have a happy day and week ahead!

  3. That was fun - love it! My hubby works for a local potato chip company - he would get a kick out of this - I'll have to show him. Cute photos of you and Colleen, too! x Karen

  4. That's some spud :) If that was a real potato and I had to wait over 2 years for it to bake I would be needing quite a few snacks while I was
