Growing new trend that we think is SPUDtastic!!!!

“Easter potatoes trend grows amid soaring egg prices”

So you might be thinking, will painting potatoes ever catch on?

Well. . .did you know that prior to the 19th century we carved turnips for Halloween?

Thank you WBTV (CBS affiliate in Charlotte, North Carolina ) for sharing this trend with us.

To read more about how pumpkins replaced turnips, here is a fun article that was published by The Guardian.
