McCain Purely Potatoes (review)
"Good food starts from the ground up. That’s why our McCain Purely Potatoes® varieties are made with the goodness of 100% real, specially selected potatoes. McCain Purely Potatoes® varieties are washed, peeled and cut potatoes, so you can quickly prepare your favourite, delicious potato recipes. Simply steam in the microwave ready bag for easy and delicious mashed potatoes or roast in the oven. McCain It’s all good™"

I was invited to try out new McCain Purely Potatoes for free thanks to BzzAgent. I was very excited to try this new product. I had a choice between the 100% real potato chunks or the sweet potato chunks. It wasn't an easy choice but I went with the real potato chunks. Suggested retail is $3.49 a bag-reasonable. I got mine at Metro and I noticed they were on sale $2.49 a bag. For the price I have to say good value for your dollar. They are found in the frozen potato and french fry section of all major grocery stores.
The directions are easy to follow Microwave frozen potatoes in the bag on high for 12-14 mins or until tender. I did ours for 13 mins. Let stand for 1 min. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes. Add sour cream, butter, oil, garlic, salt and pepper and mash until very smooth. You could add your favourite cheese, herbs
or seasonings.
We followed the directions on the bag to add milk and butter. The potatoes were very good. A little dry(maybe abit more milk or butter was needed:)
My family ate the whole bowl regardless. It was nice to have mashed potatos and not have all the prep. I will be trying these again in the near future and I will also be trying the sweet potatoes because I love sweet potatoes.
