Instant Potatoes Questions- Brands, etc
I haven't used instant potatoes for years & years, is there a difference in the
cheaper ones than the brand name ones? I want to make up a gift basket with the
potato soup in a jar and want it good. I can buy some at Save A Lot but don't
know if I should.
I have never tried Save A Lot's as one just opened this month in our town
and I haven't bought any instant potatoes yets. I normally don't like the
taste of some of the cheap brands, my regular grocery story has a brand
Idahoan that is quite a bit less than the Hungry Jack's but more than the
cheapest generic and that is the only brand I normally buy. I think it is
actually better in terms of taste than the Hungry Jack ones. The Aldi's
brand is good as well.
I love potato soup. How do you make a gift of potato soup in a jar? What else
are you putting in the basket?
Janet: I've seen the Idahoan here to, and we have an Aldi's close and one to
open in our town this spring. I'll probably try the Idahoan brand. Thank
You're welcome, Nan. My husband's hands down favorite side is mashed
potatoes and he actually prefers instant. (his mom apparently never cooked
the fresh potatoes long enough and served them up very lumpy, LOL). I
think you will like them. When they are on sale, even though already
cheap, I stock up.
I have tried both the cheap and the expensive ones. The ones that I have
regularly bought are the Idahoan brand potatoes. These are also the ones
that I can get in a very large bulk package.
I don't post too much but I thought I'd respond to this...
I have bought instant potatoes from Sav A Lot & to my family the
taste is the same as the expensive brands. I think they're .99c for
a pretty big box. I put butter, garlic salt, & lemon pepper in it &
Do you believe it is cheaper to by the flaked potatoes by the box
than to buy it by the bag?
