I miss those so much -- they have the best flavor of all of the sweet potato varieties. They were always a Thanksgiving favorite year after year. They beauty is the flavor spoke for itself so you didn't need to add a bunch of brown sugar or anything else to make them delicious. Featured in Hawaiiana. Aloha nui, James!!

Hi Pat, yes they taste similar to yams or regular orange sweet potatoes but these purple sweet potatoes are much better for you in that they have three times the antioxidants of the orange ones. Antioxidants are vitamins and minerals that strengthen your immune system which in turn, wards off infections like colds and flu. So not only do you get a great tasting food product but you feel better on top of it. The three major antioxidant vitamins are beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Youíll find them in colorful fruits and vegetables Ė especially those with purple, blue, red, orange, and yellow hues. To get the biggest benefits of antioxidants, eat these foods raw or lightly steamed; donít overcook or boil. Now you know!
