These have a flavour comparable with grocery store 'fresh' potatoes--but not as good as home grown. But you cannot beat the convenience of instant potato flakes. Shepard's pie, croquettes, potato rolls, sourdough, thickening soups--it's a great staple to keep around. My husband was used to the old fashioned, made from scratch mashed potatoes, and even he prefers these! I make them with dry milk powder, butter, & freeze-dried chives. These have a flavour to compare with grocery store 'fresh'--but not quite as good as home grown.Review by PhoenixNest
