Do the Monster Mash with super Mr Mash!

Advantages: Great value for money; good taste
I have been buying Mr Mash for years. It was my sister who first recommended it to me many years ago when her children were small. Prior to my buying this I used to buy Smash Mash or store brand mash but its always Mr Mash I buy now. It isn't purely for its taste; it is also for its cost; you can buy it really cheap at Iceland; only around £1.00.
Mr Mash is made from '99% real Potato' and it tastes really good.
Mr Mash has No artificial flavours, colours, no added Salt; it is low in fat, Gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.
In the large box I always buy it states you get 15 Servings. I would probably agree with this. Of course it all depends how much mashed Potatoes you want! The Potato powder/flakes come in foil packets and is incredibly convenient and quick to make. In all honesty I will say that in my view its not as nice as home made mash! But it's the closest thing to it. This is ideal for busy mums (or dads) trying to juggle Home and work life. The product can be microwaved if you prefer; although I always just use Water from the Kettle. According to the instructions; you should pour ¾ pint of boling water into a bowl; then add ¼ Pint of cold Milk and a 'flat teaspoon of salt'; You should then sprinkle on the contents of one packet of Mr Mash; wait a minute or two for the contents to be absorbed, stir and then add a little butter and stir again. The Box also provides you with information regarding making just two portions of Mash.
Personally; I make it the following way. I pour some boiling water into a Bowl; then add as much instant mash I feel necessary (depending on how many people are eating); in between I add butter and I also often add cheese. My daughter and myself love Cheesy Mash so we have this quite often. Its basically common sense or fairly easy to estimate how much of the instant mix you will need etc/how much water. You just then make it to whatever consistency you like. I don't like runny Mash at all so mine tends to come out quite fluffy. Personally I do not add Milk; in my view, im happy just adding Butter. However, for those who want a more milky/creamy taste, they may prefer it with added Milk, although I don't think this is necessary.
