You'll Never Believe What They're Doing With Mashed Potatoes Now

Posted by Adriana Velez on July 17, 2012 at 8:54 PM

mashed potato machineI can't believe this is happening to mashed potatoes. There is a new Slurpee-style machine that oozes out mashed potatoes into a waiting cup below at the touch of a button. Gravy is optional. It's the most brilliant/horrible way to enjoy mashed potatoes since Richard Dreyfuss built a mashed potato mountain in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Has it really come to this, mashed potatoes? We're squeezing you out of a machine into a paper cup at the same place where you purchase gasoline? Oh how the potato has fallen. It was kind of a lowly vegetable to begin with -- but it does not deserve this indignity. Check out the mashed action below.

Ew, that liquid dribbling you get at the end? Shudder. How could this possibly be any good? And you know they just reconstitute potato flakes. Ain't no fresh potatoes being mashed for this glop. God knows what the gravy is made out of. Maybe some of that gasoline.

Food squirted out of a machine is a humiliation that should be reserved only for already-fake foods like Slurpees. What is that -- sugar, ice, flavoring? Fine. Perfectly acceptable. But this? This just makes me feel sad for potatoes.

Dear potatoes. I'm sorry this is happening to you. Maybe others will recognize this as potato abuse and put a stop to it. But probably not. At least this weird machine is limited to 7-11 stores in Singapore -- for now!

What do you think of the mashed potato machine? Would you try it?

I would not eat mashed potatoes from a machine. MAYBE the instant mashed potatoes that they make for schools, hospitals and nursing homes, but never from a machine.

I hope that machine stays in Singapore, or just fades away.  People in Singapore should at least have real mashed potatoes. 

Has anyone ever felt like they gotta have mashed potatoes NOW?  lol

i love mashed potatoes but no i would not try that, that is just weird. just like when they put a little bit of food coloring in mashed potatoes and how different they tasted. we eat by our eyes if it looks different then what it has been for years we won't try it or it ends up tasting differntly. why do people go messy with a good thing. leave mashed potatoes alone they are good just made the old fashioned way. peeled real potatoes cubed boiled,mashed with milk and butter.
