Which tastes better, Sweet Potatoes or Yams? Every since I was a boy, I’ve always wondered what is the difference between these two vegetables. Truthfully I didn’t think there was a difference. Sort’a like the fact that where I grew up, we drink pop with our lunch. Out here in California they call it soda.  On one of our visits to Kansas City, when she was small,  Day came and asked me what a pop was. I think she thought it was a pop on the hand for being bad or something like that.We still have a good laugh when I remind her about it.
