Do you eat the skin on a sweet potato?

I have no problem with your standard baked potato skin, but the sweet potato skin for whatever reason, does not appeal to me? Am I missing out on the nutritional value by just eating the filling?

  1. I do not eat the skin on a baked sweet potato.

    1. Nope, I don't eat the skin on a sweet potato either...

      1. I have....but as a general rule...No!

        1. I love the skin on a sweet potato. I like the contrast of the sweet filling and the slightly bitten skin..

            So do I! I will just roast a sweet potato and eat the whole thing plain...well except the ends.

          2. I love sweet taters but I don't eat the skin.
