Nothing beats the real thing from scratch, but as far as instant soup mixes are concerned, this one will become a staple in my cupboard. I really like this. I didn't have butter potatos so I used regular and added butter to the soup when it was hot. It was good without the butter too. I was out of tumeric and used ground mustard. Thank you!

Is great for one person to have around. I have played with similar. This one works for me, although I added 1/2 cup dry coffee creamer and 1/2 teaspoon of butter seasoning, like you would use on popcorn. Is a keeper and one I will work with for some variations.

This was good! It turned out really thick for me, so the next time I make this I am going to cut back a little on the instant potatoes. I added ground mustard instead of the turmeric (as another reviewer did) because I didnt have any. The nice thing is, most of this came from my food storage, and I like that I have a recipe for good food that I can fall back on in tough times. I will be making this again!

WOW! This is one of the best soup mix recipes I've ever tried. I used Idahoan potatoes and also added a teaspoon of garlic powder to the mix. I also added a slice of American cheese to the bowl after adding the boiling water. Awesome. I'm going to make a big batch for my wife to keep at school for her lunch. Thanks for a great recipe.

I tried this soup mix with no success. I used quality ingredients and even added things to it but no luck. I am not going to rate this since it's not fair that it isn't to my taste.

Not sure what I did wrong here, but my soup was awful. Maybe someone can tell me what I did wrong. I used Idahoan mashed potatoes and Tones garlic and herb seasoning. I ended up wasting a lot of ingredients!

This was a really good soup base. I made a double batch for a basket to raffle at the church. I did try some for myself. Not quite as cheap as I had hoped, but I also purchased the smallest boxes of milk and potatoes I could find which did raise the cost per serving.

So simple yet sooo good. Good flavor and filling and versatile. You can add left over vegetables to make a creamy veggie soup, grated cheese for cheesey potato soup, and many more possibilities. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

This is perfect for my neice, or for any college student that studies late, has little time, but needs some nutrition. I am definetly going to give this to her as part of a Christmas basket. Thank you so much. Also, ideal for quick lunches, or for camping. I think it would be great for the elderly also, as most older people seem to love potato soup! It goes down easy and is quick and tasty. A definite keeper!! Love, Becky

Perfect gift for Xmas after I bought 10 boxes of instant potatoes for $1 apiece. Now, I have a good use for them.
