SUPER delicious. I am a HUGe fan of mashed potatoes and a potato connoiseur in general; these really held up to my standards. Don't forget your salt though because you need more while on the trail, and my partner wanted to salt these (he puts salt on a lot of things when I don't).

Just got these as a side for a backpacking trip. They certainly did the trick, they were tasty and packed nice, convenient to be able to just eat out of the bag. Pretty much all that i expected out of just add water mashed potatoes. Pretty cool.

Not what I thought

If you absolutely HATE potato flakes, try this one. They are so good I made them as a side dish to go with the fresh Salmon my boyfriend caught. Sounds lazy, but I can't get my mashed potatoes to taste quite like this one.

Negative Reviews:


these are not good.

they are overly herb seasoned and lacking any potato flavor whatsoever., there is no hint of salt or butter flavor. i LOVE mashed potatoes and i hated them.

these are not worth carrying and wasting filtered water on.
SimpleGirl at REI on 08/08/2010

At least they are vegetarian.......

Unfortunately, these lack flavor. I was looking forward to having them on the trail. Might be better with some salt and pepper or other seasonings if you plan to bring them.

Taste awful

These were awful. I had 1 bite and wasn't interested in a second. Nobody else at camp wanted to finish them off so I ended up packing out the leftovers.
DjPhibes at REI on 09/09/2010

no no no

tastes like paste. no matter how long you mix it can't get lhe lumps out

Neutral Reviews:

For mashed potatoes they're ok. There are others out there that taste better. I'm also not sure why instant potatoes require 13 min before serving.
