    How do you feel about other starches? Rice, bread, noodles, pizza crust, tortillas, dumplings, etc?
    Most cuisines have some mild flavored starch as a component, potatoes aren't really much different.

    There's not liking potatoes, and there's not having strong feelings for them either way.

    And then there are so many ways to cook and eat potatoes that you really cant compare them to other vegetables. It's the most versatile.
    Proper mashed potatoes have no rival

    I'm Irish, of course I fucking like potatos....

    potato bread >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Mashed potatos are out-fucking-standing. Roast potatos are great. Chips (fries...) are great, especially handcut chips like you get in a restaurant or pub. Hash browns, meh, but still ok.

    Hell you can even make great alcohol out of it:

    ^^^ the origin of whiskey (uisce beatha), what americans would call moonshine...obviously much older than american distilling.

    "...taste like nothing except what you put on them."

    I would say that's a fairly close description for most styles of pastas and rice.
    Breads and potatoes, get most of their flavor from maillard reaction under high heat.

    I'm from Antrim, from close to Belfast (Newtownabbey)....live in Belfast now. I haven't even been alive for 35 years, so clearly a different generation haha.

    So your a Cork man who lives in England, and you play yank football? (If I remember right) Interesting if nothing else!

    I only like yams. Regular wt potatoes are garbage. Might as well eat a Milky way & mountain dew - tastes better and about same cal.

    I'm pretty much a vegetarian only eat fresh caught fish and farm raised chicken and OFC veggies but won't touch the white potatoes.
