The New Food Craze?

During one of our rare free times, Sam and I stumbled across a new food stall in Robinsons Place.

Tornado Potato is already a popular concept in other countries and now it has hit Metro Manila. Basically, you have a potato twirled around a stick. You then choose from the available flavor powders to coat your potato. Choices are: Italian Herbs, Rosemary & Thyme, Basil, BBQ, Cheese and Sour Cream.
The potato on a stick is placed inside the bag, followed by the powder, then shaken, and voila!

Most of the potato is crunchy, much like a potato chip. But the end of the potato is softer, like a boiled potato. It's quite tasty, although I wish they hadn't put in so much flavoring since it was a bit overpowering. It's also a little bit challenging to eat this. Sam resorted to snapping off the crunchy potato bit by bit, while I ate it like I would eat a barbeque. It's messy, but nonetheless, it's a great snack especially for kids, kids-at-heart, and people who love to try new things.
