Mutated purple potatoes:
These are potatoes bred from seeds that had mutated while being carried aboard a Chinese spacecraft. Call my palate "pedestrian," but I'd rather have my spuds imported from Idaho rather than from a galaxy far, far away....Maybe I just watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers one too many times as a kid, or I took The X-Files way too seriously.
Foodies everywhere are going nuts for these things, apparently. I just think they'd make my mashed taters look weird.
