Well, of course you can't really expect powder to turn into a tasty loaded baked potato. Idahoan tries, though, to make you think so.
They couldn't be any easier to make. Add hot water, stir, let 'em set. At first taste, they're not too-too bad.
But then the sodium kicks in, and it gets nearly unpleasant. That flake consistency hits, and I was wishing to bad for the real thing...chunky, soft taters swirled in a rainbow of butter, salt and pepper...mmmm....
They were on sale, and I won't be trying them again.
