I have to say that if these are anything like the instant mash available over here, there are some bargains that are not a bargain.

When I met my husband he was a batchelor and he always ate instant mashed potatoes, but when I started making homemade he would no longer eat instant. I always have instant in the house for emergencies, though, and he is back to eating them occasionally. They are useful for coating chicken, as you did, and also as a thickening agent. I also use them for filling when I make pierogies. They have improved them since they first came out.

not a prepper, a bargain shopper that knows the price of food only goes higher and it has been at a quicker rate

This is why I asked. You are the OP.

I also buy cheap and I also stock up on stuff thats on sale.
I have eaten instant mashed and I have had some that were pretty good.
But I would never consider buying instant mashed in those quantities.
Are those designed for long term storage?
