You aren't a real Idaho resident until someone has said something along the lines of "Oh, you mean like, potatoes?" when you tell them where you live. It happens to the best of us. Part of being a true Idahoan.

But, what if that weren't the case? What if Idaho was no longer known for its growing and exporting of potatoes? What if we were in an alternate timeline where potatoes suddenly ceased to exist? While it's probably not likely, we're getting prepared. You know, just in case.

We asked our best buddy in the whole wide world, ChatGPT, what city in Idaho would suffer the worst fate if potatoes just so happened to be wiped off the face of the Earth. Here's what the AI had to say:

If potatoes were no longer an export in Idaho, the city of Idaho Falls would likely be significantly impacted. Idaho Falls is situated in the southeastern part of the state and has a strong agricultural industry, with potatoes being a major component of its economy. The city and its surrounding areas have a high concentration of potato farms and processing plants.


Potatoes are a vital crop for Idaho Falls and play a crucial role in supporting the local economy. The loss of potato exports would have far-reaching consequences, affecting farmers, processors, distributors, and related industries in the region. Job losses, reduced revenue, and economic downturn would likely be the immediate outcomes.

So there we go. If there are no more potatoes in Idaho, Idaho Falls is doomed. We're not saying you and your family should have a backup plan just in case potatoes cease to exist. Unless, of course, your entire income is potato-based.

Then maybe, just maybe, you should plan ahead just a little bit.
