Idahoan REAL Premium Mashed Potatoes – 3.24lbs
Well, I may not be totally crazy (although the jury is still is still out on this one) but there is at least one (the only one that I know of) that is pretty damn good and it is the Idahoan REAL Premium Mashed Potatoes that I used to buy at Costco long ago in 3.24lbs containers. For what ever reason, Costco stopped carrying this product but may still may carry some of the Idahoan potato product line.
In short, they taste pretty darn good by themselves but I have been known to add in some sour cream in lieu of some of the milk, blend in some well-cooked cauliflower, cheese or even some bacon bits. Just follow the directions. It is that easy. Also, instant mashed potatoes can also make a good gravy thickener if used in small quantities.
I just ordered some from Amazon.com for $14.337 a box. Remember, this box weighs more than 3 pounds and will last a long time and price per ounce you can’t beat…and as a matter of fact, you can’t even mash it. lol
I usually order more to get the Super Saver shipping discount.
The BEST instant potatoes
AWESOME mashed potatoes — from a Box? YES!!!!
Well, several stuffy guests put token amounts of mashed potatoes on their plates and just moved them around on the plate, leaving them there when plates were cleared. No one else said anything — except that everyone else had seconds or even thirds on the potatoes, and *three* wives contacted me afterwards to find out where to buy the exact same box!! Confession: I’d have made the potatoes in advance and hidden the box if I’d had time. Alas, I didn’t. Now, I wouldn’t even bother trying to hide. These potatoes are THAT good!! We still have remnants in a box that’s a year old (don’t have mashed potatoes for dinner parties all that often, and use Idahoan Mashed Potatoes, Four Cheese, 4-Ounce Package (Pack of 12) in a smaller and even more convenient package for family use) — and the potatoes from our old box were still GREAT last weekend!
If you’re a mashed potato lover, or if you cook for those who are, you owe it to yourself to try these. I make great mashed potatoes from scratch, but these are just as good and take a whole lot less time (best part is not having to peel all those potatoes!). This product is a huge win!!!
ALMOST the real thing…
Taste great for instant potatoes
This is making me worry about the cost/value of my other Pick and Save orders!

Splendid Method For Enjoying Near-Fresh Potatoes
This is the first exception I have encountered with my gourmet pallet.
It already contains milk. So, all I do is dump a good 3/4 cup of water into the Sunbeam 6131 Hot Shot Hot Water Dispenser, Black, set a small bowl with some nutmeg Simply Organic Nutmeg Ground Certified Organic, 2.3-Ounce Containers (Pack of 3) and (REAL!) butter from Germandeli.com under it, fill in the pre-measured 1/2 cup of potato flakes (or perhaps a little less) the recipe dictates, swirl with a spoon and oh, baby, the result is mouth-watering: AS IF JUST MADE BY HAND!
