Purple Sweet Potatoes

Anyone tried the Purple coloured Sweet Potatoes before? they have a white/yellow filling (like normal potatoes) as opposed to the orange filling on normal sweet potatoes.
 
I seen them in Sainsbury's listed as their 'Taste The Difference' food line. They cost a little more, and you get less per KG.
 
They tasted a lot better (sweeter & better texture) than the normal orange ones I always buy.
 
Are they pretty much identical nutritionally?

    yeah I noticed them when I shopped at sainsburys for a bit, didnt notice much change in the outside appearance but when I cut them open they were a really light colour. I didnt like em as much so I went back to tescos. Not sure about nutritional values.

    Thanks. I'd definitely recommend them, they taste a lot better than normal ones!
