Instant Mashed Potatoes---What's Not to Love??? Mon, 12/12/11 1:42 PM (permalink)
Many people think Instant Mashed Potatoes were invented in some Diabolical Lab somewhere.
Well cynics, they're actually made from Real Potatoes! Completely distorted-- but real!
Serious Eats recently did a Taste Test to find the best ones.
The best one according to them was Betty Crocker's Yukon Gold with a score of 6.1 out of 10.
I've always interpreted 61% as being a "D".
I've used Instant Potatoes as spackling, pavement repair and trying to patch the crack in the Liberty Bell.
Most of the panelists said that with some major supplements like butter, heavy cream, herbs, etc you could get by with some of them.
They're on the supermarket shelves. Someone must be buying them.
Do you use/like Instant Potatoes?
Here's the report:
