I LOVE mashed potatoes, especially during holiday times. Just to be honest, I usually dislike instant mashed potatoes... a lot. But my husband likes them and we have gravy to use up, so I figured I'd give Betty Crocker's Potatoes a try. I was so excited to get the package in the mail, especially because I can use the bowl, spoon and trivet for other things!
I was very surprised by how good the Roasted Garlic Instant Potatoes were. I actually almost liked them and my husband definitely really liked them. I will agree that instant mashed potatoes are a million times easier than making homemade.
I didn't care for the Creamy Butter potatoes because they were too.... instant mashed potatoe-y. Weirdly, my 18 month old adored them. I gave her a little fork and she sat and ate a ton of them. They were just the right consistency for her to scoop and get into her little mouth without them dropping off the fork. Perfect!!
