    * Well, these were pretty underwhelming and just not at all like potatoes. I guess that I just haven't been low carb long enough to be fooled by these and think that they are a suitable replacement for potatoes. And I suspect I may never be because these will never come even close to the real thing. I mixed this with mashed rutabaga and this gave it a slightly better "mashed potato" texture, but I can accomplish the same thing with a bit of cream cheese and resistant starch.

    I bought two packages so I will try these in a low carb bread recipe, but I just can't eat them as potatoes.

    * Well, an "A" for making them look similar to mashed potatoes, but...a "D-" for taste. I'm fully convinced, they will never be able to make a potato replacement that is similar to a real potato. It just isn't possible. I'd rather have two bites of the real deal than a whole plate of these...it's just, so weird. It's not the worst thing ever, but by no means is it something I would eat more than a bite. It's fibery-dusty tasting. That probably won't make sense until you've tried them. God bless those that like them. I'm truly jealous. I wanted to so much! Nevertheless, I just can't give them a positive review. It's just too damn weird.

    Reviewer: A customer in Connecticut
    * They look like potatoes and smell like potatoes....but they certainly don't taste like potatoes. Maybe I did something wrong but they came out with a horrible texture. The taste wasn't bad but I couldn't bare the gritty-ness. I used calorie countdown milk instead of cream, that may have had something to do with it. Overall I would not attempt to make these again.

    * Ack, these were horrible. I will stick to mashed cauliflower.

    Reviewer: Lee Ann in Wisconsin
    * I found this product to have a strange consistency and texture. It was really mushy and almost gritty. The sour cream and chive option was similar to a bowl of green Cream of Wheat. We were not able to eat them, and I discarded the other package.
