Hasbro have announced that Mr Potato Head is to stand down as the star carb character to be replaced with Mr Avo Head. Studies have shown the decline of potatoes a-peel unlike the avocado, which is seeing popular demand from millennials, and proving ever increasing Insta-fame. The new vegan-friendly character is making his debut today checking out London’s hottest brunch spots and it is really no guaccident that the avocado was chosen to replace the carby potato. With veganism going viral, as part of a healthier lifestyle, the avocado has become one of the most highly demanded fruits in the world, with over 650 million kilos worth sold across the UK and Europe. And as more millennials ditch the carbs and live by ‘fats are friends, not foes’, the much-loved Mr Potato Head gets moved aside for now.
Mr Avo Head is suitable for millennials of all ages and will be launched at a date TBC.
