I bought a box of this a few weeks ago at my last grocery shopping trip at my local Walmart. It was only a dollar for the box, but I now know that next time I would rather spend a little more on a better brand. So far I have used it two or three times to make mashed potatoes and they were fairly decent tasting. But I have tasted much better brands before, that we're also generic. I found these to be not as fluffy as I would have liked, the first time around they came out a little more runny than I would have preferred.
