Tasteful Selections Sweet Surprise Sweet Potatoes offer a new and exciting alternative to the well-known comfort food. These sweet potatoes are hand harvested and thin skinned, so no peeling is included in preparing these sweet treats.

“It’s always a joy to work with a product you love,” said Chef Elenterio. “Potatoes are already fun and versatile to cook with, but the great flavor and small, uniform sizes of Tasteful Selections take it to another level.”
