    My grandkids love them things. I don't think they know about cooking real potatoes and mashing them up!
    We may to do that one weekend just for the experience and compare them to instant.

    even if you have plenty of instant potato buds stored away - I encourage you to have a wholesale grocer or farm source located for some "last minute" buying of some real spuds .... they are one of the better storage crops for root cellaring ....

    I think instant potato pouches are a nice prep idea, they are simple to make just add water and heat. They don't take up a lot of space, store well for a long time and most grocers carry them.

    For the person just getting into prepping and wondering what to prep food wise, instant potatoes may be a good idea to help fill out the menu. Likewise for the person living in a apartment with limited space. Being light they also make a good backpacking entrée for a dinner meal.

    I like the #10 cans, yet I have a hunch there will be times when opening a pouch or two would make more sense than opening a #10 can.

    If they are the potato flakes we were raised on them, I guess Mom didn't know you could make mashed potatoes out of real potatoes... this was the 50's-60's OMG

    We never have enough of these in stock in our pantry. I just bought another 4 boxes yesterday when I was out shopping. I have some in mylar, but most of the get used up before we get them into the long term storage. Maybe if the local walmart had 20-30 boxes on the shelves at once I'd buy them and get them sealed up. I hate sealing just one or 2 bags of something at a time. I want to have at least 10 gallon bags or more for it to be worth while.
