Stove Top Top-Pops, So Un-Boring

Geophyte Nation, the biggest potato grower in the US has recently come forward declaring spud sales are down. “With our greatest efforts, we can no longer entice Americans in purchasing potatoes,” stated chairmen Sir N. Dere, “we have run every campaign possible, from giving coupons to suggesting recipes, but the spud is dead.” Researchers found that 85% of Americans agree that potatoes are boring and no longer the first choice as the “Sweetheart of Sides.” Who’s the prettiest girl on the block now? Stove Top. The creators of Stove Top Stuffing were already confident in their stuffing, but wanted to woo the other 15% of Americans away from the dud spud. After scouring food blogs for the latest trends in food, they found success with Top-Pops, Stove Top Stuffing on a stick. “We could not miss with this food-on-a-stick trend,” states Stove Top’s CEO, “Our stuffing is delicious as is, but put it on a stick and Americans are entranced.” Top Pop’s, touted as the Un-Potato, sales are skyrocketing, saving all of America from mundane mealtimes. “Not only are potatoes boring, they have eyes, and that’s just creepy,” shouted Idahoan high school student Jim James over his classmates chanting, “Top Pops Rule! Top Pops Rule! Top Pops Rule!”

    You are so clever and that bacon sandwich below is one of my all time favorites, even without the butter.

    2 things:

    1) I could probably eat a million of these.

    2) I fully blame the CFTC Paleo movement for killing off the spuds.

    I remember having tried one of these food sticks in Asia. And I love them. As I'm sure I would this one as well.

    Yikes. Is this a joke?

    I find it a little disheartening that you would stray people away from a natural food such as a potato to creepy gross boxed stuffing.

    Kind of hurts my heart = (
