Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love instant grits family size. It is hard to find the FAMILY SIZE box of instant grits. Is it possible to order directly from the company? It is widely used in my home. My grandchild love them also.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Less Salt I purchased the instant grits for a quick breakfast option and easy prep at work,, but unlike the other grits, these are way too salty.. The salt stays on my palate .. I try to add lil more water but that changes texture..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oversalted While the texture is pleasant, this product is so high in salt that no other taste can discerned, rendering it un-eatable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Grits Express My wife bought two containers of these grits and she told me to bring one to the office this morning and see how I liked it. I love grits and used to drive all the way to Helen, GA to buy what they called Ice Cream Grits at a grits mill there. I fixed these express/butter flavor grits and I am telling you they the best I have tasted in a long time. I enjoyed them so much, I just had to let you all know they are a good thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try new recipes I have grown up eating grits. I will always order grits when go out for breakfast. I few years back I had found a bunch of recipes using grits. I have seemed to lost them all. Would love to try eating grits in other ways. I think my favorite will always be fresh grits with butter and syrup. Oh my the way the only way my children eat them is fried. Thank you Quaker for my life time favorite food.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Add more iron to 5 minute cook grits Please add iron to the 5 minute cook grits. The instant packages have 45% and the cook grits have only 8%. Why is this? lease add more iron so that I may continue to purchase the 5 minute cook grits!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! I have never been a big consumer of grits, only because I didn't eat much southern food growing up, but after discovering that I liked them in a restaurant I decided to give them a try at home. These were easy to make, taste great and have a wonderful texture These were way better than at the restaurant. I'm excited to try other recipes with grits now.
