I prefer regular potato but do eat sweet taters as well. Sweet potatos certainly don't require as many additions as a regular tater does for me. They also last for an ungodly length of time before spoiling.
Wife: "Come on, try them - they taste like candy!"
Me: "Way to oversell it."
That's how you know exactly when something DOESN'T taste like candy.
When Mom comes up to you with a plate of vegetables and that big ass smile on her face saying something like, "Who needs Fun Dip when you can have this specially prepared sweet cauliflower?" That's when you know you're about to eat something that tastes like crap sprinkled with 4 granules of sugar.
