Who doesn't love potatoes?
I've always got a bag of potatoes in my pantry and an assortment of boxed potatoes to choose from as well. The boxed versions are both convenient and tasty. They can be rather inexpensive too, but do you focus on buying name brand foods when you grocery shop?
Even with most coupons, name brand foods are still more expensive than the store brand and a taste difference is non-existent, negligible perhaps.
In another food battle, today I put Betty Crocker Au Gratin potatoes against a store brand, Kroger Au Gratin. I compared price, weight, the look and most importantly, the taste. I prepared each according to the package instructions, adding only black pepper and some chopped up ham. Yes, Ham & Taters for dinner!
