Great Big Idaho® Potato Truck Coming to Sand Springs
The Great Big Idaho® Potato Truck will be at our Sand Springs location on July 25 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.. The truck is on a seven-month cross-country journey to celebrate the Idaho Potato Commission's 75th Anniversary and to raise funds and awareness for Meals on Wheels.
A 48-foot long flatbed trailer featuring a 28-foot long, 12-foot wide and 11.5-foot tall Idaho® potato specially "cultivated" in honor of the Idaho Potato Commission's 75th anniversary year in 2012 made its national debut at the Famous Idaho® Potato Bowl in Boise, Idaho last December when ESPN prominently featured it several times during the game.
Since then, the Truck has made several public appearances and at every venue, the most frequently asked question is, "Is it real?" We’ll never tell, but in the event it is, the Great Big Idaho® Potato…
- Would take more than 10,000 years to grow.
- Is 1,102 times heavier than the largest potato ever grown, which weighed 11 pounds.
- Would take 2 years and 9 months to bake.
- Could make 30,325 servings of mashed potatoes and more than 1.4 million (1,455,570) average-sized fries!
Bring the camera and the kids for a fun summer activity!
