New Caribou spuds at Maine Harvest Festival

BANGOR - Visitors to this years harvest festival in Bangor can also pick up a bag of potatoes that have become a hit for consumers.

The Caribou Russet was developed by UMaine researchers and was first introduced at the festival last year.

 

They sold out quickly last year and that's why they stocked up with a big supply for this weekends big event.

 

The Caribou Russets have become so popular they've been picked up by the Tradewinds supermarket chain and on Monday they'll also be available at Hannaford's.
