More on the low-carb potato

Filed under: New Product — Tags: — @ February 8, 2005

News of the low-carb potato broke mid-way through last year, but today it came out that a group of Florida farmers bought the rights to the special spuds.

bq. “SunLite” is the catchy name on the soft yellow plastic bag holding 3 pounds of nouveau potatoes. “New! SunLite All Natural — Low Carb Potatoes,” screams the front. “30% Less Carbs than Russet Potatoes.” Just in case you missed that line along the top, it says the same thing down below.

With 30% less carbs than regular potatoes, calling SunLite “low-carb” may be a stretch, but that won’t stop the marketing machine.
