I Scream You Scream We All Scream For Idaho® Potato French Fry Ice Cream!

During Potato Lover’s Month in February, we partnered with Van Leeuwen Ice Cream to create one of the most irresistible flavor combos known to man - Idaho® Potato Malted Milkshake and Fries! The limited-edition ice cream was an instant sell-out in Van Leeuwen’s Los Angeles scoop shops, prompting them to add Malted Milkshake and Fries to their spring collection. The Idaho potato ice cream is now available on the company's website and in all of their scoop shops in America!

Get your hands on the limited-edition Idaho® Potato Malted Milkshake & Fries ice cream while supplies last.


Spring Into The New Season With Idaho Potatoes

The change of season often tantalizes taste buds. Lighter dishes loaded with spring veggies become irresistible. One of our most popular sides is Penne with Arugula Pesto, Idaho® Red Potatoes and Spring Vegetables. Snap peas and asparagus prepared al dente add a little crunch to the savory salad. Another favorite is Spring Fling Idaho® Potato Salad, a not-so-traditional salad packed full of spring peas, cucumbers, cranberries and almonds.

Ask Dr. Potato

Q: How Do You Keep Your Potato Salad From Becoming Watery Or Soggy?

A: Chances are that an overly moist potato salad may originate from using potatoes with a lower solids content such as yellow (Yukon) or red types. While both have excellent potato salad qualities, they are sometimes prone to having a higher moisture content. Try using a russet variety next time to compare and contrast, as these have consistently a higher solids/lower moisture content.
