Potato Buds

Is it seen as totally absurd that I love Potato Buds? I can suck down some instant mashed. What’s wrong with me?

Another pleasure: Root Beer.

  3. When I was first preggers, I could have probably eaten those instant mashed potatoes they have at KFC for all of my meals. In fact, my favorite meal was from the combo KFC/Taco Bell we have near us. I would get the mashed potatoes with gravy and a bean burrito from Taco Bell. They must have thought I was insane. It is disgusting to think about now but I probably ate that at least twice a week if not more.

  4. Lana, they are these little potato flakes. I guess at one time they were real, but in the box they are dried and flaky; almost like fish food. And you heat up some water, milk (or in my case, soymilk) some margarine or butter, and some salt. After it all comes to a boil you add in the potato buds and voila! Instant Mashed.

  5. I have a very horrifying story involving me, Potato Buds, college, tiny bugs, screaming, and my friend, Erin. Let’s just say, mind the expiration date on those. I didn’t know they even had an expiration date until it was too late.

  10. Well, considering I’m a big pig and I worked out really, really hard this morning, I not only had 4 servings of extraordinarily healthy Potato Buds, but I had a veggie burger as well. And on that veggie burger was indeed some Dijon Tard.
