InstaMash is a food item found in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


A very basic packaged food available in pre-War America, an InstaMash package contains freeze-dried powdered mashed potatoes. Just add water and enjoy a full plate of mashed potatoes, with Real Dig-In Flavor! as box says.[1]

InstaMash is a fairly basic healing item that serves little purpose outside being a novelty food, except as component of caravan lunches.
