The Truck

The Big Idaho Potato Truck is on its SEVENTH cross-country journey! It began in 2012 as a one-year campaign to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission and became quickly apparent with its success that it would be more than a one-year occurrence, it literally became a big piece of pop-culture. It travels the country promoting the certified heart-healthy Idaho Potato and its mission to help small charities in towns and cities with its A Big Helping program. Not to mention that people just want to have their picture taken with a 4-Ton Idaho potato!

Trivia: This Tater…

  • would take over 7,000 years to grow.
  • weighs 4 tons, equalling 21,562 medium-sized Idaho® potatoes.
  • is 802 times heavier than the largest potato ever grown, which weighed 11 pounds.

  • would take 2 years to bake.
  • would make 20,217 servings of mashed potatoes. Pass the gravy!
  • would easily make over 1 million average-sized french fries.

THE IDAHO POTATO COMMISSION

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
