Absolute bargain, versatile, milk glut-buster!
If you are OK with milk - then making this up with milk only (instead of milk + water) is a brilliant way of using up a glut. Freezes beautifully - easy to flavour with grated cheese, spring onions, mustard etc. Open freeze in portions and then wrap and use when you need a belly-warmer/extra side/companion to baked beans or sausage. Don't panic after you've mixed the packet into the liquid in the first instance - the mix goes from wallpaper paste to mash once it has stood lol! Absolute bargain - neutral in taste - versatile.
Great if you are allergic to cows milk
I don't eat a lot of mash but it's nice to have it occassionally and to find a cows milk free instant mash (as I have a mild allergy) without a lot of unnecessary chemicals added. I make it up with soya milk, vegan butter plus a little salt and black pepper. I freeze it on a tray in spoon size dollops then store it in silicon freezer bags so I can just take out what I want when I need it. A quick whizz in the microwave and it's done. No fuss, no mess.
Use kettle, add butter!
The number 1 way of making this is; boil kettle, fill up bowl (or cup) of mash flakes stirring regularly until mash has desired consistency, add a big old knob of butter and wee bit of salt and pep if you fancy. I find the butter is essential to giving it that classic mash flavour (but maybe that's cause I've always made mash with spoonfuls of butter)

make cold and keep in fridge
Ok it doesn't taste brilliant, but it's not bad. And it's very convenient - you can make it up using cold water/milk, it thickens up and turns mash-like fine. Pop it straight in the fridge, then remove portions as required and microwave. Great if you don't have a family to feed.
perfect for milk intolerants
love it. just hope they dont stop making it as i am allergic to milk so i cant eat the ones that have milk in it

YAY!! NO added milk. Fantastic for someone like me that has problems with milk. Really good constituency. As well as enjoying it in it's own right when we need a quick meal, we often use this to thicken soups.

Made up as instructed but tasted floury and very bland leaving an after taste. Had meant to put it on a fish pie but did topping from natural instead and ordered another sort for my store cupboard.
Great Instant potato, so improved over the years.
It has been years since I tried instant Mash. I remember it tasting very ‘grainy’ So surprised with this, I added a bit of butter and milk and would not had known this was not made from fresh potatoes. I will definitely stock up on a few more packs in case of emergencies, shortage of time and pure laziness on my part. Fantastic!
Great Storecupboard item
Very pleasantly surprised. Used it to help my own mash, as a base for quick toddler lunch and in soups. Fantastic value
