It tastes fine, and if you’re in a rush then go for it. But it’s not as nice and is much more expensive than home making


Buying, peeling, boiling and mashing potatoes is a fucking mugs game. Every aspect of it. That said, I’ve never purchased ready-mashed mashed potato before…


don’t eat enough butter or milk to justify ever buying it just to make mash, so its ready mash 4 life.


Both of these are things that anyone sensible would avoid because of cost rather than snobbery imo

It’s slightly thinner so cooks in 8 minutes instead of 10. I know.
