It’s National Potato Day.  And a new survey found only 2% of Americans DON’T like potatoes.

The survey also asked people to name their favorite way to eat potatoes.  And #1 didn’t surprise us much.  Here are our ten favorite ways to eat potatoes . . .

  1. French fries, with 24% of the vote.
  2. Baked potatoes, 20%.
  3. Mashed potatoes, 19%.
  4. Roasted potatoes, 9%.
  5. Hash browns, 5%.
  6. Tater tots, 5%.
  7. Potato salad, also 5%.
  8. Potato chips, only 4% of the vote.  (Does America really like hash browns and potato salad more than chips?)
  9. Potato pancakes or latkes, 2%.
  10. Some other way to eat them, 1% of the vote.
