I love already prepared side dishes. They save me lots of time spent in the kitchen. Recently, I spotted Crystal Farms Simply Potatoes Sour Cream And Chive Mashed Potatoes in my local grocery store and I decided to purchase this interesting product. Here is what I discovered!
Crystal Farms Simply Potatoes Sour Cream And Chive Mashed Potatoes cost around three dollars for a one pound and eight ounce container. This item is refrigerated. I immediately wanted to try this product and write a product review about it. I love sour cream and chives. I also love mashed potatoes! These ingredients combined are a winner, in my opinion. There is a tantalizing picture of these mashed potatoes on the outside of the packaging of this product. You can see the chives and tell that these mashed potatoes are very creamy. On the package it states that this product is made with real butter. It also states that these potatoes have a creamy homemade taste. Simply Potatoes uses fresh potatoes, never frozen. That was nice to know. Crystal Farms is a growing little company located in Lake Mills, Wisconsin.
My love of mashed potatoes and the ease of preparation is what drew me to this product. I chose to microwave this dish and it only took about four minutes. This product has to stand for two minutes. You can add butter or margarine to taste and stir. That is it. Just serve. You can also heat this dish on the stove top, in a sauce pan or place it in a 350 degree oven for fifteen minutes, in a oven safe dish. The microwave method of preparation worked well for me. It was easy and not messy. When I tasted Crystal Farms Simply Potatoes Sour Cream And Chive Mashed Potatoes, I was delighted! These mashed potatoes were indeed creamy, full of homemade flavor and had a wonderful blend of sour cream and chives in them! Adding extra butter really gives this side dish a creamy kick! They were delicious! I was very pleased with this food item. I rate this product four stars out of five stars. I will be buying it again. The Simply Potatoes line has many other flavors available like country style mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes and garlic mashed potatoes, just to name a few.
