    CAUTION, use only a tiny bit of these, once you add water they explode in size. This can is going to yield a TON of mashed potatoes.

    I liked the taste, had a nice buttery flavor. No additional flavoring needed.

    A great deal for a quality product! Just try to dehydrate your own vegetables and see how much time it takes and how costly it would be to fill a #10 can. One comes out way ahead purchasing freeze dried produce for the cost and diversity of uses. Easy to use, no worries about spoilage, is a great product for daily use or long time storage.

    Never forget to try what you buy before adding to your long term storage! We opened a can of these and it got rave reviews from adults and children. We snuck them into Easter dinner and everyone thought we had peeled and mashed fresh potatoes and buttered them. With these, all you need to do is add hot water and fluff. They taste AMAZING.

    These are a great taste and texture. We used them on shepherd's pie, and couldn't tell the difference from fresh potatoes. They did take much more water than stated, though, which makes them go farther, too. Will be glad to have these in storage.

    I received an order that had some damage to the seams on one of the cans and received stellar customer service via the on-line chat feature. Response and resolution was fast and direct. I appreciate this kind of service and is one of the primary reasons I continue to order from the Ready Store. In addition, I was surprised by the weight of the cans, since these were freeze dried instant mashed potatoes. At 2 lbs 12 oz, this is a super value compared to the largest box of instant potatoes that I can find at my local grocer. Plus I get the longevity of the freeze dried product versus the one year expiration date on those available at the super market.

    Mashed potatoes are one of my families favorite comfort food. I wish these did not contain ARTIFICIAL COLOR, AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, but this is clearly stated. Because of this, I would not buy them for everyday use, but I did purchased a few cans for emergencies. They have a good flavor - and if SHTF, it's a minor compromise to have one of our faorite comfort foods.

Benefits & Description

20 Year Shelf-Life | Just Add Water | Great Taste

Don't Waste Any Time
Zero cooking or other preparation involved to whip up these yummy mashed potatoes. Make Food Storage Convenient
These instant potatoes provide carbohydrates, protein, fiber, and vitamin C. Be Prepared for the Next Time of Need
With a 20 year shelf life you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from being prepared. Make Your Food Storage Exciting
Potatoes are easy to add things to! Combine with bacon bits, chicken, or peas! for a delicious meal! Saratoga Farms has a reputation for having dehydrated foods that taste great (and the price isn't half-bad either) these mashed potato pearls live up to their brand! If you're wondering what foods to include in your food storage or emergency kits, then these mashed potato pearls are a great idea. They're light and portable, but also packed with nutrients--and best of all, they're ready in seconds with just a little water! Mashed potatoes are also a traditional comfort food, so you have have at least a little peace, even during an emergency.

Emergencies come in all forms: there are the little ones, like running late or having a sick child. And then there are the big ones, like natural disasters, or getting fired. In any of these scenarios, however, having some food storage will help. Food storage can take the place of regular meals in a pinch: not wanting to go to the grocery store after a long day at work, or having to stay with a sick child and not being able to get food both mean that having food storage around could save you time and money. And food storage is obviously a good idea when faced with something like a natural disaster. If a major disaster happens in your area, there is no telling how long it could be before help and supplies arrive. In cases like severe winter storms, authorities could be completely incapable of helping, and you'll be left to fend for yourself. But this doesn't mean that when an emergency does occur, you have to panic. With Saratoga Farms instant mashed potato, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are well supplied, no matter what happens!

Saratoga Farms™ is a well-known and respected food storage company that makes and sells traditional basic dried and dehydrated foods. These foods are second to none in terms of quality and taste. We take great care to ensure the foods are packaged in optimal conditions with minimal moisture in a licensed and certified clean-room environment. We include an oxygen absorber in all of our products and verify the integrity of the seal on all our finished items to give you the best quality possible.

Our careful packaging and special dehydration process ensures that you get the nutrition you need without losing the benefits of good tasting food. Let us save you money and simplify your life with the products we know are the best deal around.
