Finishing The Bet!

As Super Bowl fever was sweeping the state, we couldn’t help but show our support for the Seahawks as they made their run through the playoffs and into the season’s biggest game. 


We decided to send a fun challenge to the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee (CPAC) and see if their office and the potato growers of Colorado were up for the challenge.

The bet what made and the banter started.  The only question was would a food a bank in Seattle or Denver be receiving the donation of potatoes from the state with losing team.


(Jim Ehrlich, Executive Director of the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee)

We really thought the Seahawks would win but who could have imagined that result would be a 24,500 pound donation of fresh potatoes to a food bank in Seattle as a result of their 43-8 victory.  In the end we decided to match the bet so food banks in both cities received donations the same 24,500 pound donation.

Now we need your help.  The additional element of the bet was that the Executive Director from the state with the losing team would have to visit the winning team’s city and promote that state’s potatoes.  So we need you to tell us what you think would be an intriguing way for CPAC’s Executive Director to come to Washington.  The person with the idea that gets the most likes on Facebook will win a cooler full of Seahawk's gear and a pair of tickets to a regular season game in 2014.   So visit our Facebook page and make sure you share your idea and you could win everything you see below.  (Please note we reserve the right to disqualify any suggestion that we feel would not best represent the mission of the WSPC)

I love potatoes, especially scalloped and baked!

Blind taste test? Have them try two baked potatoes and tell which is from Colorado. But make them both from Washington. And make them say: "this is the best dang potato I've EVER eaten!! It HAS to be from Colorado".
