Four-ton potato on wheels hits the highway
BOISE, Idaho - This is not the kind of thing you expect to pass you on the highway.
A massive souped up potato is set to hit the road this year.
It's a new and improved "pimped out" big Idaho potato truck.
The new version is made of fiberglass and is a slimmed down potato compared to the original.
It weighs four tons, making it two starchy tons lighter than the old version.
"It is going to be an incredible continuation of this big Idaho Potato pop culture that we've created for Idaho," Idaho Potato Commission President Frank Muir said.
The new potato truck is now gearing up for a nationwide tour as part of Idaho's multimillion-dollar promotional campaign.
