People Are Dying Potatoes Instead Of Eggs This Year For Easter
Because egg prices remain high, some families may reconsider wasting several cartons for Easter egg coloring. And now there may be a less expensive option: potatoes.
Potatoes USA is attempting to capitalize on the price gouging of eggs by hyping potatoes as a replacement, and supposedly, people are giving it a try.
Some blogs recommend using traditional paint for potatoes instead of dyes and just having fun switching things up. Others are using edible paint and water-based food coloring to dye and eat the potatoes.
However, this is more of a comedy stunt than a genuine "hack."
For starters, a dozen potatoes may be more expensive than a carton of eggs. Smooth gold potatoes, in particular, are ideal for color and design.
It also does nothing to address the issue of "losing" an egg in the house until it rots. A misplaced potato would suffer a similar fate.
While photos of some people's dyed potatoes look good on the internet, the execution will be even more difficult than getting eggs to turn out.
