Every single roasted potato was unique

Our writer thought that sweet potatoes are sweet potatoes, there is no way that one can taste THIS different from one to another.
This is embarrassing to think of how wrong he was. (He said it by himself)

It was like each shop had its own personality: the amount of water, the sweetness, the texture, everything is so different that it’s fun to try several types of sweet potatoes out.
Of course, it depends on the variety, but it is our recommended "sweet" you can eat deliciously at this time of the year!
