Don’t Bother with Edward & Sons!
I say if you want FANTASTIC instant mashed potatoes then try “Honest Earth All Natural Mashed Potaotes” they are 100% Real Potatoes and they have No preservatives!
I think that Edwards & Sons should give this brand a try and quite trying to produce there garbage.
Very good vegan, organic, gluten free mashed potatoes!
Nice garlic flavor, better than the cheese flavored variety. Has actual roasted garlic bits in it, but not too much. Just add hot water, margarine and “milk” product.
Tasty and Healthy
I’ve found an easier way (for me) to mix it up though:
1. boil water (1/2-2 cups, depending on how much you’re making)
2. mix butter/margarine with boiling water for the amount you’re making
3. mix in potato flakes and milk product
I like to serve it with melted margarine, but gravy is good too. If you make it properly it has a great consistency.
Quick & Easy doesn’t have to be Unhealthy or Tasteless!
LOVE this! I especially enjoy the roasted garlic.
You have to like the flavor of garlic, and mix it according to instructions, though [meaning mostly to not over stir, which IMO can cause gummy or poor texture]. I like a thick texture, and when I make my own mashed from scratch, I leave the skins on and always want a few potato lumps showing. Creaminess I get from using enough butter and cream.
I appreciated other reviews including ingredients lists and giving suggestions on tweaking the box directions, all of which helped me in deciding to purchase and making the best of my first mixed batch!
If you’re concerned about butter, cream, or palm oil, read Dr. Bruce Fife’s The Coconut Oil Miracle. Or read books by Dr’s Mary Enig and Sally Fallon, or many others like them.
How refreshing to know that all the above are organic, which is supposed to mean NO GMOs, NO toxic additives, and NO soy.
[Note that some organic purveyors use what they call organic soy, but I need to avoid any type of soy when possible, due to unavoidable overdoses, which BTW and IMO, are why my health is low ebb, i.e., I’m sick of and from overdoses of soy, additives, and GMO’s, see my Listmania].
Thank you Amazon organic vendors!
Edward & Sons organic mashed potatoes are an excellent choice for those who want an organic and/or gluten free product …
These organic mashed potatoes are definitely customizable. One suggestion that is offered is “for creamier potatoes, add more milk product (stir in 1 Tbsp at a time to read desired consistency.) For firmer potatoes, let sit 2-3 minutes before serving.” These potatoes can be either made on the stovetop or in the microwave. Either way you wish to prepare them you are looking at under five minutes. Many people object to the palm oil as it is one of the ones we are ask to limit or avoid, but then again so is cocoa butter in chocolate. In order for you to decide I’ll list the ingredients and the basic nutrition facts listed on the box.
Organic Potato Flakes (organic potatoes, mono and di-glycerides from organic palm oil), Organic Onion Powder, Organic Roasted Garlic, Sea Salt, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Black Pepper.

I didn’t include the nutritional facts with milk / soy milk / vegan spread or water as that would vary widely. We do like these potatoes and I certainly like the last minute convenience factor if I don’t have time to prepare fresh potatoes or am out of them. There is a recipe from “Allison’s Kitchen” for roasted garlic potato-broccoli soup that sounds delicious. Edward & Sons organic mashed potatoes are an excellent choice for those who want an organic and/or gluten free product.
