Vegetables just got a little bit cooler in Japan, where the Hokkaido Agricultural Research Center has recently started growing multi-colored potatoes.

Not only are the potatoes more vibrant in color, but they are also supposed to be healthier as well.

The new potatoes come in red, purple, and yellow. The red and purple potatoes are healthier and can actually lower your cholesterol while the yellow ones just have a hint of chestnut flavor to them.

Either way they are likely to add some color to an otherwise boring potato side dish.
