Tasty and sweet

5 stars

I cooked it in a pot on the hob, it wasn’t watery and tasted really nice. Soft and sweet, great value and good for quickness. Recommended.

Watery Slop!

1 stars

This would be a great product, if it wasn't full of water. Microwaved as per instructions. It was so sloppy - a big puddle in the middle, when I mashed it to the sides. Had to microwave it for 3 times the stated time, to boil off some of the water - by which time I'm sure all the nutrients had been destroyed!

saves all of the peeling

5 stars

excellent so easy to prepare


1 stars

I love everything about Aunt Bessie's products - except this! It was sloppy when microwaved, had a nasty aftertaste, no texture, in fact it was just like baby food. I only used two servings and threw the rest away - what a waste.


1 stars

digusting tasted soapy

my mistake should have looked at ingredients ratio

2 stars

my mistake should have looked at ingredients ratio (would prefer more swede than carrot) bought for convience as when use fresh there's a lot of waste as don't use much. easy to cook just tip as much as you need into saucepan and heat (stirring as you go)the frozen pellets melt and you are left with the mash. my problem is the taste it tastes like funny carrots i cannot taste swede will nor be buying again

horrible earthy wasted sunday roast

Yummy can't be beaten

Easy and Tasty...

5 stars

Good Quality and so easy to make. Just put as much as you need in a bowl and microwave then mash with a fork then microwave again. The only suggestion i would make is do not microwave in a plastic container as there tends to be excess liquid. Microwave in a glass or normal pot bowl as the liquid then evaporates. So much easier than cutting, chopping.

Not like Aunt Bessie's mashed potatoes. Rubbish.

1 stars

No rating - a rubbish buy! I wrongly assumed that this was carrot and swede presented the same as Aunt Bessie's mashed potatoes: small balls of mashed potato. Buying on line, I did not look at instructions. The whole pack has to be cooked at once and mashed with a fork.. I only need one portion for a meal. I cannot mash anything as have arthritic hands. I shall bin this or give it to a friend.
