February is love month. Most people think of candy, cards and flowers but who thinks of vegetables. As you know Sweet Potato is one of the major ingredients in Ashley*s Sweet Chips but who ever thought of the sweet potato being known throughout history as being an aphrodisiac. In Europe in the early 1600’s sweet potato tarts were eaten to increase sexual desire.
Sweet Potatoes are a root vegetable that has many health benefits. Sweet potatoes contain Viatamins A, B, C & D, magnesium, iron and potassium.

Many people associate the feeling of happiness with being in love. I urge you to take part in this experience of health and happiness while eating Ashley*s Sweet Chips a.k.a.” Love Potion Letter A”.
