WHAT Is A Funeral Potato?!?

Every social media site is working off a crazy algorithm now and clearly Facebook is running their ads off of one too. Several users are reporting an ad for "Funeral Potatoes" popping up in their feeds. Some are calling it plain disturbing, but after some careful research, it looks like they're just delicious.

(Okay, also: "bee-bopping")

So what's the reason for the name? Well, Augason Farms, the manufacturer of "Funeral Potatoes" claims that "These potatoes are so delicious you'll be dying for more!"  

The product comes in a pouch, you just at water and BOOM - 12 servings of potato goodness.
