We're #TopTaters!

While on twitter the other day I noticed a tweet about potatoes.  As you can imagine, an Irish girl like me was all over it!  I tweeted right back that I love potatoes!  Before you know it I was knee deep in a tweet conversation about baking with potatoes and before you know it I was saying that I would love to come up with a recipe for chocolate whoopie pies made with potatoes.  Since I love to bake and be creative this seemed like it was right up my alley!  Happily within hours I had chocolate cakes, made with mashed potatoes, cooling on the racks.  I must admit they are absolutely rich, moist and delicious!  I couldn't wait to tweet back to my new friends that I had had success in the whoopie kitchen and that I had made the first ever chocolate whoopie pies made with potatoes.  As I tweeted my news I found that there was a contest to name the #TopTater for recipes made with potatoes.  All I had to do was take a photo of my creation and upload it to the United States Potato Board.  Hey, I'm game, off I went, uploading the photo and popping in my name.  Within days we were notified that we were the weekly winner of the #TopTater contest!  Whoopie!  The prize is $100 and we are thrilled to accept our honor!  All I can say is, when someone asks you to think outside the box and be creative, never ever say no!

Today our creativity was rewarded and in the days to come we will offer our new potato whoopie pies to our customers, here, on our web site!  No reason our customers can't share in the fun!  TWISTED TATER on the way!
