nicest instant mash ever.smooth consistency,beautiful buttery taste.beats the best known brand by miles.

Tasty and the better instant mash.

4 stars

Put this against a well known competitor..... This wins on taste, texture and cost. A quick and easy mash to add to pie, peas and gravy.

Strange sweetish chemical taste, not a winner

1 stars

The consistency was good but the smell and taste of rosemary was so strong I couldn't eat it, smell is subjective but to me it seemed like the sweetish but unpleasant smell of a fridge that's overdue a good clean. I don't like rosemary much anyway, but this wasn't even herby, just weird. Definitely not a substitute for the brand name versions.

Who needs to microwave a product like this! Ive be

4 stars

Who needs to microwave a product like this! Ive been using the dearer brand & decided this week I'd like to go back to Tesco one. But having read that its got PALM OIL in I'm not so sure - I always prefer to buy products which do not have it in.

Contains palm oil.

2 stars

Contains palm oil, so not buying anymore.

I've used this mash a few times now & it's not bad

I've used this mash a few times now & it's not bad but i do add butter and some grated cheese or 1 finely chopped small onion when mixing , just makes it more interesting :D

Use the Kettle Wisely

Absolutely disgusting!!! Insects found in the sachet dead and alive felt physically ill!!!!

The 2nd main ingredient is Palm Oil This product really is awful. Tastes 'greasy' not buttery (almost like lard). Buy any other instant potato, just avoid this, if you want something that even vaguely tastes like mash. Shame as Tesco own are normally good.
