I have been trying out a lot of the products in the Asda Smart Price range so this is my opinion on the Asda Smart Price Instant Mash Potato. I usually make my own mash but find it a bit of an effort peeling the potatoes, boiling then mashing. I had tried instant mash before and didn't like the taste, then I tried this smart price mash. I was very shocked at the price of this 120g packet of mash, at 16p this was a product I just had to try! The packet is a little polethene bag with the token green and white Asda Smart Price colours. The contents feel powdery and soft. Reading the packet, it contains dried potato flakes and it also contains no ... Read the complete review

*~* The Product Itself *~* Asda Smart Price instant mashed potato comes in a 120g packet and costs only 16p! The instant mash is made up of dried potato flakes. To make the mash you simply pour the flakes into a bowl, add 570ml of cold water, then add 1 teaspoon of salt, stir the mixture and microwave for around six minutes. This should leave you with fluffy lovely mashed potato. One advantageous point to note is that this mash contains no artificial colours, flavours and hydrogenated fat. *~* Basic Nutritional Information (per 100g) *~* 333 Calories 0.6g Fat 0.5g Saturated Fat 8.5g Protein *~* My ...

There's nothing like real mashed potato but I always think it tastes better in the winter made with 'old' (not mouldy - 'old' as opposed to 'new!) spuds. However it can be a mucky & time-consuming job & somehow there never seems to be enough to go round even if you fill a big pan. There's also the cost of gas/electricity & the washing up.... So, if I'm not entertaining or cooking something in a hurry I sometimes reach for the instant sort - I've tried Mash & Mr Mash plus Tesco's Value but I have to say that Asda's is pretty good as long as you add seasoning, a little milk, a knob of butter or a handful of chives or chopped spring onions as it ...

I love mashed potato, but I rarely make my own using REAL potatoes. The only occasions where I make the effort is if we have guests for tea. I have tried loads of different brands of instant mash potato and almost always resort to the cheapest on the shelves, which is inevitably the smartprice / value ranges. When I last bought the Asda Smartprice Instant Mash Potato I paid just 18p for a 120g bag. There is 373 calories and 1g fat per 100g. This mash generally does 4 servings for us which is great value. The instructions state to mix with boiling water, so it is easy peasy. Depending on what we are eating it with I sometimes add milk or a ... Read the complete review

I like to make the majority of my meals from scratch but sometimes I have neither the time nor the inclination to 'do it myself' so I like to keep some tinned products or packets in the cupboard for quick & easy meals that are still relatively healthy. This instant mash comes in powdered form and to make just measure out the required amount as per the instructions on the back of the packet & you just need to add some boiled water to this mix. It's very simple to make and you can make it to the consistency that you like. To give the mash less of an artificial taste I usually add a few knobs of butter as well as some salt & pepper and I ...
