Want to win some cool kitchen gadgets? Betty Crocker and MyBlogSpark sent me this set, including a silicon hot pad, a mixing spoon (dishwasher safe) and a lovely bamboo bowl – as well as two packages of instant mashed potatoes – and they would like to send the same gift set to one of my readers. OK, I only ever buy instant potatoes for making potato bread, so I am probably not the best person to ask about them from the perspective of making and eating them according to packages directions. I do like that each box contains two packs of potatoes, so if you are making bread and just using a cup or so at a time, this is the way to go. My teenager did make a beeline for the roasted garlic variety and we ended up making it right away. No, they don’t taste like homemade (think butter and whole fat, local milk – good, not good for you), but they were pretty tasty. I bet garlic potato bread would be good, too.

If you would like to give these a try, please leave a comment below by noon on Nov. 20. Random.org will select a winner on or about that date.

In the meantime, if you would like a coupon for this product, click here.

 

Betty Crocker and MyBlogSpark provided these items for review, but my opinions are my own.

I like any food that my kiddos can make easily and independently. We also use them to thicken soup. I'd like to win.

It has been many years since I've had boxed potatoes, but I'd like to try them again.

My 1 year old daughter loves mashed potatoes and would eat them for breakfast if I would let her. We have never tried instant but if I win these I will put it in her stocking! She will likely chew on the box :)

I usually make from scratch but like to have these on hand for quick fixins. Potato bread sounds interesting. My mom used to use these to thicken soups too.

We are already big fans of Betty Crocker instant potatoes. My family prefers them over homemade. From my viewpoint, that's great because they're so quick to make and yummy. My youngest two love to help prepare our meals. They'd love the bowl and utensils. Thanks for sponsoring the give-away!
