“In an increasingly competitive and saturated marketplace, the Product of the Year seal of approval gives our winning products a powerful tool proven to increase product trial, consumer awareness, distribution and sales.”

Made from 100% real Idaho® potatoes and ready in just minutes, Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes offer the best taste and texture compared to any other mashed potato, earning the title of "America's Favorite Mashed Potatoes" – based in part on 52 weeks of IRI sales data ending on Dec. 30, 2018.
