Five Guys and Why I'm Famous


Here is the conversation

Me: Sometime when we are down here (Utah) we should stop and eat at this one place, I got a burger from there when I was here last - it was really good.

Jaren: okay, where?

Me: Five guys or something

Jaren: Five guys! Yeah! We sell potatoes to them.

Me: YOU DO?!!?!

Jaren: Yeah, have for years

Me: I didn't get any! We HAVE to go! This is so cool...

Jaren: Yeah, pay to grow them then pay to eat them......

Me: But I'm going to tell them the fries are YOURS!

Jaren: You will not.

Me: YES, I will.

It's true. Yours truly(meaning Jaren - I just stand and cheer on the sidelines) grows the amazing fries from Five Guys.

They claim "We use only Idaho Potatoes" and it's true!

They should say:
"We use Mr and Mrs Potatohead Idaho Potatoes - they are especially yummy because they are grown with love"

This is the most exciting day of my life. I feel famous. I am famous! You are all so welcome to know me.

That's so funny, I just ate there the other night and was telling my husband how they are so cool and we have to support them because they use Idaho potatoes and I'm an Idaho girl so it's practically my duty.

5 Guys is my favorite burger place, hands down. It's the only menu we have on the fridge. Yay that he sells potatoes there! They are delicious!

I haven't ever eaten there, but have wanted to try it for some time. I'm a french fry freak. Love 'em! Geez, now everytime I eat a fry I'm going to think of you too. You are starting to take over every thought in my brain....:)

Kayleigh said...

I have never eaten there. I'll definitely have to now. Maybe I'll be like, "Ya, I blog stalk the people who grow the potatoes you use for your french fries." I'll be famous vicariously through you....

...haha, not really. But I can pretend, can't I.

Mommy Madness said...

Went to their link and put in my address into the store locator to find a Five Guys near me. We have two in So. Cal. I'll have to go and try the potatoes that are grown with love.♥

Abra said...

TOO funny!
I love coincidences like that!

I've never eaten at Five Boys but I will next time I'm in UTAH!

That Girl in Brazil said...

So we'll be in Utah next week ... where is this place?!

The Boob Nazi said...

Okay, I've never been there, but I need to go now. Just because your husband grows the potatoes. That's so cool.

littlefamilyJLD said...

If I tell them I know you (sorta) will they give me a discount?

Wendyburd1 said...

Ummm never heard of it, tell Jaren to send me a potato, I am a connosieur, and I will rate it. :p

Strawberry Shortcake said...

I couldn't find you today (for some strange reason) and panicked! I am so glad it worked. How cool is that, being famous and all? I have never heard of Five Guys. Sounds good if it has Idaho potatoes!

Jillybean said...

We ate there for the first time this weekend.
The burgers are good, but the fries are fabulous!!
They gave us so many that we ended up bringing a bunch home and our kids ate them.

Even cold and soggy the fries were good.

Probably because they were grown with love.

Lon and Steph said...

That is hilarious. On Thursday my hubby and I drove by one and I mentioned that I had heard they were good. Now I know why :) haha. I will be going back to see for myself now!

Kristal said...

Yay! So glad to find you again :D

Kristen said...

I have never been to five guys, I will have to try it out. Hopefully the hamburgers are as good as Training Table. I feel so cool to cyber know you!

The Korr's said...

haha, very cool! If I ever drive by a location, I will be sure to stop in and try the fries!!

Mina said...

In fact, they should put your url on their fry box, don't ya think?

Jordan and Michaela Spence said...

Five Guys is all over the East Coast, we ate there all the time this summer in Philly . . . I wonder if we were eating Jaren's potatoes all the way over in Pennsylvania :) lol

Victoria Elder said...

Umm Okay...remember when we were there did I not say something about them possibly being your potatoes?

Except I've never heard of Five Guys. sorry. But now I'll totally go check em out and enjoy the french fries all the more knowing they were made with love. haha

clan of the cave hair said...

Very cool!

Amanda said...

Thats so cool! My dad always told me that we sold our potatoes to McDonalds. But there are so many of them, and my dad said he didn't even know if they went to the one in Othello. So it wasn't as exciting.

Whit! When we went to see Elijah in DC he took us to Five Guys and we loved it. Last week when Mom and I were going to see Colleen we saw that one had gone in by her hospital so I took Grandma there to eat. When she saw all the sacks of spuds that said grown in Rigby for Five Guys she wondered if Jaren had grown them. Now she will be so excited that he does! She will want to go back and tell them to give her special treatment because her grandson grows their tators!
