This is a once a year treat from Licorice International.
They’re not Irish and they’re not made out of potatoes. They’re delightful coconut cream candies coated in cinnamon, and they’re made in Philadelphia, where they’re a popular treat around St. Patrick’s Day. They look just like miniature potaotes and taste like a bit of heaven. Here’s a video that shows them being made in a Philadelphia factory:
Until recently, Oh Ryan’s Irish Potatoes were only available in Philadelphia. But now these delicious (and a bit decadent) treats are available on-line through Licorice International. Elizabeth, one of the “Licorice Ladies” who owns Licorice International, remembered how much she loved Irish Potatoes when she lived in Philadelphia, and she wanted to share the special treat with you. You can order Oh Ryan’s Irish Potatoes here. Order soon for St. Patrick’s Day!
