Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: InstaMash

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]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

InstaMash is a simple food item, adding five points of health and three points of radiation. Notably, unlike Fallour 3, it can also be used to make caravan lunches.

The irradiated InstaMash is a variant that cannot be used in crafting due to the amount of radiation it has absorbed.
