I thought yams and sweet potatoes were the same thing! Maybe after having a can labeled as "Yams" with sweet potatoes as the ingredient helped to skew things for me.

I prefer fresh sweet potatoes over the canned version. So now I'm wondering if I actually did eat real yams from a can, and compared the taste to sweet potatoes. I see where the two could very easily get confused.

Thanks for the information!

That's exactly why they make them put "sweet potato" on the can even if they call them yams.
