Absolutely foul.... No way is it a substitute for real mash. Not even adding butter could save this monstrosity. Some of the reviews have stated it tastes like wallpaper paste but to be honest wallpaper paste probably tastes better... Live and learn I suppose

Obviously it's not fluffy like real potato mash, but it's cheap, quick, and absolutely hits the spot when you can't be bothered to cook. Perfect to keep at the back of the cupboard for emergencies, and useful for hot hearty meal when camping.

Peculiar flavour

1 stars

How can you get something like mashed potato so wrong? Ok, packet mash is always going to have the consistency of wallpaper paste, you can't escape that but the flavour of this is grim. The best way to describe it is having a faint taste of some sort of confectionary like gobstoppers together with an oily artificial flavour. Not something I'd care to repeat.

Pretty good product.

4 stars

Having read the reviews I was doubtful but it was pretty good.Nice texture and no strange chemical taste. I didnt add milk or butter, just plain but I imagine with extras it would even better. Good for the top of the cottage pie or when the spuds have run out.

Tasteless Mush

horrid like wallpaper paste

tasty and cheap

For a 1st time use, I found that 275 ml rather than the recommended 300 was perfect, and with a dollop of organic coconut oil and a large pinch of all purpose seasoning I had in my hands a tasty bowl of stuff that served as a filling meal with a cup of tea. As of early October 2020,and the way things are in the world with impending food shortages to come yet again, I would predict that many of us will come to learn the value of thrift and modest sufficiency if we are to be at least reasonably comfortable, and this is one option available.

Love the stuff!

5 stars

Fab quality,no nasty smell unlike other brands,does like all instant mash benefit from a knob of butter,I love this as a snack on its own or part of a main meal for quickness an taste,have tried many brands but this is def my go to,dont get me wrong i love home made mash but if you need some quick this is the one id recommend,i love the frozen mash too just not enough room in my freezer all the time so this has become a staple
