It’s Tater Tuesday on the blog today! We’re celebrating our meet-up yesterday with the world’s largest potato in Orlando. As I mentioned last week, the six-ton potato is touring the U.S. on The Famous Idaho® Potato Truck to celebrate the Idaho Potato Commission’s 75th anniversary.
We missed it when it was in the Northeast, so we considered it fate when we realized it would be in Orlando during our visit this week.
Our plans were nearly squashed by Tropical Storm Debby, which at this moment (and for the foreseeable future) is sitting in the Gulf of Mexico, lashing the west coast of Florida with torrential wind and rain.
Fortunately, the squalls let up for a window of opportunity in the middle of the day for a russet rendezvous!
It’s headed to GA, AL, and KY over the next few weeks, so check its website for dates and locations!
