Let's settle this once and for all - Mr Tayto is a potato, not a giant crisp

We have the truth.

IT’S THE AGE old question. Is Mr Tayto, the beloved mascot of Tayto crisps, a potato or a crisp, or a crisp-coloured potato?


It’s a question you probably haven’t really thought about, but yes, we’re here to highlight the issues that matter. It’s our job.

It’s an ongoing debate, with some claiming he’s too yellow to be a spud, and others speculating that his first name might be Pat.

Pat Tayto, get it?

But either way, it’s one to give some thought to

We put the question out to Twitter last year and it was chaos.

Blind chaos


So, we had to settle this once and for all.

Tayto confirmed to that Mr. Tayto is indeed, a spud.

But he’s not just any old spud. He’s…

The crispiest spud there is.

This is a loaded statement if there ever was one, we’ll leave you with it.
