New Year's Idaho® Potato Drop 

Make it a ‘spud-tastic’ start to 2019 by attending one of the most exciting celebrations of the year -- the 6th Annual New Year’s Eve Idaho® Potato Drop. You won’t want to miss that giant Idaho® Potato drop in front of the Idaho State Capitol in Boise at midnight December 31. The family-friendly event starts at 3:00pm MT and will end at 1:00am MT, giving you plenty of time to partake in tater-filled fun. This year’s festivities include the “Big-Air Rail Jam” snow park, “Tuber Luge” public tubing hill, and of course, the Big Idaho® Potato Truck will be making its annual appearance. This year VIP ticket holders will have their own lounge where they can sip on craft cocktails, munch on warm appetizers, and get their groove on to 80’s classics. This is one NYE spud-bash you won’t want to miss!

Ask Dr. Potato

Q: Help! My mashed potatoes turned out watery. How can I remedy the situation? 

A: If you added too much milk, sour cream or butter to the potatoes and they turned out watery, my go-to solution is to mix in two tablespoons of Idahoan® dry mashed potatoes. This ingredient will absorb the extra moisture without compromising taste.
