  • Yes, they're good.

  • Yep! I've had purple mashed potatoes and purple potato chips, both at restaurants. The mashed potatoes were really good - the texture and taste is similar to yukon gold. The chips weren't that great, it could have been the way they were cooked but they were tasteless.

  • I had to look it up on what it looks like.   I think I like to try one.

  • Yes! We LOVE the purple (aka blue) potatoes! They are hard to find and expensive when found. But, we do get them at specialty markets once in a blue moon.  LOL - just realized the pun in my last sentence! Terra has an awesome blue potato chip. Jet Blue serves them as their signature onboard snack.  We have found them in a couple of our local grocers.

  • Seen yes, eaten no, because I refuse to purchase anything from the only people I know who grow them.
