Q-These potatoes are priced higher than smaller ones I can find in local stores. Why should I start buying Huge Idaho Potatoes?
- One thing you learn in Idaho is that all food is not created equally. Sometimes you can get away with using the "cheap" stuff, but most of the time, if you want a great meal, you have to be willing to do what it takes. There are only so many potatoes grown in Idaho each year. Out of those potatoes there is a very small number of large potatoes grown. These potatoes rarely make it out of Idaho for one reason and one reason only. People in Idaho are a bit greedy when it comes to the good stuff. But, thanks to this website, every one in USA can get their hand (or possibly two hands) on a Huge Idaho Potato.
