The puppies of both teams gave it their all, but it was Team Fluff that slid into the end zone for a last-minute victory of 73-69.

French Fry Perfume

A new perfume from the Idaho Potato Commission gives off the aroma of French fries.

“Whether you’re at a drive through restaurant or dining in, it’s near impossible to not grab a fry and take a bite before you dive into your meal,” Jamey Higham, president and CEO of the Idaho Potato Commission, said in a statement. “The smell is too good to resist.”

Dubbed Frites by Idaho, the “limited-edition fragrance” was going for $1.89 per 1.7 oz bottle on the commission’s website before selling out. A giveaway promising more bottles of the tater spray ends Sunday.

The fragrance, which the commission says captures “one of the world’s most irresistible scents,” is made from distilled Idaho potatoes and essential oils.

The commission cited a recent national survey by the firm Pollfish that found nearly 90% of Americans “find the smell of French fries irresistible.”

First introduced back in a 2020 update, the feature reportedly allows users to pick through pre-recorded song clips as well as sounds of an assortment of other sounds like goats and farts. The problem—as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration saw it—is that these sounds could potentially drown out pedestrian warning sounds required in Tesla’s and other electric vehicles if used while the vehicle was in motion.
