We truly live in an age of glorious wonders and marvels yet unheard: A business that sends messages on potatoes makes $25,000 a month and is inspiring copycats.

pot

In May 2015, a 24-year-old man named Alex Craig started a business in Dallas to send potatoes etched with personalized messages for $8 to $10 a piece. His girlfriend told him it was the “stupidest idea ever” […] In February, it posted $25,000 in sales, its highest to date. […] “There’s just something about receiving a potato when opening a package—it’s something people don’t forget.” […]
A crop of copycats […] has sprung up since the launch of Potato Parcel [but] “None of them add images to the potatoes,” he notes.

Exciting times!
