I heard great things about this brand and it really did deliver. My guests liked these better than homemade. Perfect texture, no grain or dry flake you'd imagine. I also made these without milk, just water and it held up very well. Perfect to have on hand, especially if you've got a main that takes a lot of time and need a side without the hassle. Fastest, easiest mashed potato experience of my life, seriously. All you have to do is wait for the water to boil.
