Betty Crocker Mashed Potatoes Review and Giveaway


Wouldn't you love the taste of homemade goodness without all the work? As a busy mom, I sure can appreciate cutting corners while still providing my family with a tasty meal. Betty Crocker can give you just that with their new Instant Mashed Potatoes, made with 100% real potatoes!
Betty Crocker Boxed Instant Mashed Potatoes go from the stove top to the table in just eight short minutes! "Based on a scratch recipe, the Homestyle Creamy Butter variety will have your family thinking you spent hours in the kitchen the next time you serve up a hearty helping. If you prefer an extra kick of flavor, give the Roasted Garlic variety a try. And with two pouches in every box there’s plenty to go around."
I was sent a fun package to review: 1 box of each flavor of Betty Crockers Instant Mashed Potatoes-regular and garlic,  a beautiful bamboo serving bowl, silicone hot pad, and a serving spoon. I cooked up some yummy Italian chicken, and chose to try the Roasted Garlic flavor a try, and it really was easy to make. It was creamy, a lot creamier than the mashed potatoes from scratch that I make! We really enjoyed the flavor and the texture was perfect! One package was just enough for our family of 4.



 Buy it! You can find Betty Crocker Instant Mashed Potatoes in stores, and here is a $.55 off coupon you can use to give it a try at your next family meal!

Win it! One lucky reader will win the same package I received!! 1 box of each flavor of Betty Crocker Instant Mashed Potatoes, 1 bamboo bowl, 1 silicone hot pad, and 1 serving spoon!

Great Giveway! I've always wanted to try instant mashed potatoes because they would be so much easier on our busy weeknights than making them homemade. These would work great for any weeknight that I'm working late and need something quick!
