In a Haiku: The Color Purple. Not the Alice Walker one. It’s a potato.
Origin Story: Not only is the purple sweet potato more beautiful than its white and orange cousins, it is also loaded with nutrients, including a whole bunch of antioxidants. But does it taste as good when made into a chip? That is the question that the Lay’s Flavor Department sought to answer with this creation. The initial answer: No, it is not as a good at making a plain potato chip as the mighty FC5. BUT, flavor it with some coconut milk, and now we’re talking! A true Hawaiian treat.
