February is Potato Lovers Month, and on Wednesday we invited you to celebrate by telling us why you love potatoes.
21 Potato Lovers posted their thoughtful answers in the comments, and the time has come to announce the winners! We selected 5 people at random, and you can read their posts below:
“My Mama used to make mashed-potatoes, or creamed-potatoes as I called them back then, every single day for me! I loved them then and I love them all these many years later! They are my probably my most favorite food! I used to put ketchup in them, so I had pink potatoes every day and I thought that was wonderful!”
“I feel like a version of Forrest Gump about potatoes, you can bake ‘em, boil ‘em, fry ‘em, put them in soup, chowder, casseroles, mash ‘em… they are so versatile, inexpensive and filling!”
“Potatoes are my favorites because they are so versatile. You can use them for any meal use, as a dessert such as Potato Candy, as a snack, and sweet potatoes are really good for you. They also make pretty plants in your garden before you dig them and the sweet potato vine is a beautiful hanging plant.”
“Having a large family…potatoes are very inexpensive. We eat them every day in many ways…with a bonus…they are good for you!”
“I love potatoes because I had a heart attack back on January 16th and they are a very good addition to my healthy diet program…and they taste good too!”
Winners will be receiving a variety pack of Express Bake PotatOHs shipped right to their doorstep. Check your inbox — we’ll be contacting you to arrange shipping faster than it takes for a PotatOH to cook in the microwave!
Thanks to everyone who participated and keep an eye out for our next giveaway – you could win some of our delicious microwave potatoes!
