The Great Big Idaho Potato Truck has started rolling on its seven-month tour across the country.
The truck, sponsored by the Idaho Potato Commission, was inspired by a vintage Idaho potato postcard and holds a 6-ton version of a potato.
It will travel the nation to help raise funds for Meals on Wheels Association of America.
The giant potato, if real, would produce more than 1.4 million regular-sized fries, according to a news release.
