Big potato.

Idaho Potato Museum

Giant baked potato out front. World's Largest Pringle inside.

Idaho Potato Museum

This museum does a great job displaying everything potato (I loved the Mr Potato Head display), including exhibits about dehydrating, agriculture, cooking, and other uses of the potato. The collections of mashers and peelers were well done, and they are currently giving out free cartons of dehydrated potatoes to make hash browns. The gift store is a hoot and I love the sacks that they use! Well worth the hour side trip for a great feel of the agricultural surroundings.

Largest Potato Chip.

Idaho Potato Museum

How big would that Pringles can have to be to hold this giant chip? Inside the museum is the World's Largest Potato Chip. It appears to be sort of formed and fried from mashed taters, but still is worth the stop as a photo op!

[Valerie McClory, 08/02/2010]

Time has not been kind to the once mighty Pringle chip.
