When Greeting Cards Fail, Send Your Valentine a MysteryPotato Instead
For those still stuck on the perfect gift for their Valentine, MysteryPotato has the perfect solution. The company anonymously ships potatoes bearing a message of your choice to those special people in your life. Because, “Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a potato. Nothing says ‘happy birthday’ like a potato. Nothing says ‘I miss you’ like a potato,” the site reads.
The love spud offerings include baby potatoes ($7.99 each), red potatoes ($8.99 each), and sweet potatoes ($11.99 each). To those who really want to send a (negative) message, the company offers an ‘Ex-Revenge Sack of Potatoes’ ($59.00), in which you can send an entire bag of potatoes, all bearing clear, spiteful messages that you can write yourself. MysteryPotato ships to the U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, and Ireland. Those who receive a MysteryPotato are advised to post a photo on social media in hopes that the mystery sender will reveal themselves.
The homepage on the MysteryPotato website reads, “We mail potatoes every single day from awesome people to people who have no idea what is about to land in their mailbox. Potatoes are simple and they bring joy and confusion like you would not believe.”
