These russet potatoes have been pre-washed, wrapped in plastic, and are ready for the microwave.
They cost $1.79 each! They are located right next to the five-pound bags of russet potatoes that sell for $2.29. I’m no math whiz but it seems to me that you could buy the five-pound bag, spend a few minutes washing them yourself, and save a lot of money. The produce manager told me they can hardly keep the ‘ready to cook’ $1.79 ones in stock.
Then he said, “The $1.79 potatoes are really popular with people trying to fix our economy.”
Okay, I made that last sentence up.
