Move over, greeting cards. It's 2016 and the new way to show someone you care is by sending them a message on a... potato?
Yup, you read that correctly.
Wayne Rempel, from Lacombe, Alta., wants to send your loved ones a Canadian-grown potato, complete with a handwritten message.
And for every order he receives before Christmas, he’ll donate one dollar to the sender’s local food bank.
For $9.99 you get a potato with a message written on it. For an extra cost, you can customize the spud with an assortment of add-ons.

“It’s been a tough year (in Canada.) I want to help support our farmers and I want to help our struggling food banks,” he told The Huffington Post Alberta.
“Even if it's not something huge, if I can help out with something that's fun to do, why wouldn't I?”
TaterGrams are a gift the recipient won’t soon forget, says Rempel. They’re puzzling and delightful — two things common greeting cards are not.
"If someone sent me a potato, I'd remember that."
Rempel says his spud-sending business is just for fun, for now.
