Being a fan of the American candy bar, especially those that have been around a long time, I'd heard of Idaho Spud and had seen it on the stock lists of old-time candy sites but had never had one. I ran across them today and bought one after first perusing the ingredients. It seems to me that I read about a spud-shaped fudge from Idaho that actually contains potatoes, but this isn't it; Idaho Spud is made in potato country and is shaped like a potato, but the resemblance ends there. (Real) chocolate enrobes a cocoa-flavored marshmallow center and the whole is covered with dessicated coconut that keeps your jaws engaged longer than they'd otherwise be with something of this type. What's nice is that this marshmallow contains no gelatin--just agar agar and egg albumen. There's no hechsher but it's appropriate for lacto-ovo vegetarians (there's very little such marshmallow to be found). This is a nice, gentle sweet (translation: it's not sickeningly sweet) and I can understand...
Having been born in Idaho, I grew up with these. I absolutely love them!!! I have not lived in Idaho for years but my grandmother and aunt used to send me a box of these every year for Christmas. I guess my opinion may be a little biased because I feel a lot of sentiment toward anything that reminds me of home - but these are truly tasty. If you can find them, this company also makes small, bite-sized Spuds that are pretty good as well. I like the actual candy-bar sized Spuds better because you get more of the chocolate marshmallow flavor, but if you like the chocolate/coconut outer covering then you would probably really like the bite-sized ones a lot.
It's a coconut-crusted chocolate coating over chocolate marshmallow, in the shape of half an Idaho potato. Yes, it sounds strange, but if you like chocolate, coconut, and marshmallow (and it isn't truly marshmallow but a bit more jelly-like), you may just love the Idaho Spud like I do. I ate my first Idaho Spud candy bar in 1964 at age 5 at the opening of a new bank in Moscow, Idaho, and I have been enjoying them ever since. When I lived in Spokane I would buy them by the boxful at the local grocer's outlet; now I live in Phoenix, and yes, I could buy them from Amazon, but this time of year they'd arrive in a puddle of chocolate goo. So I'll wait out the summer and start buying them again, and this time I'll buy enough to last over the summer in the freezer. They freeze very well!
