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 4 out of 5 by from Great product, lousy packaging I bought a 5 lb. bag of 5-minute grits yesterday and had a very difficult time opening the bag. The glue that holds the bag was so strong that when I tried to open it, the paper bag tore and grits went every where. I will grant that I am older and have arthritis in my hands, but I don't have this problem with any other bagged products, like flour or sugar. Can't you glue your bags with something that isn't so strong? This stuff could suspend a truck from the ceiling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Change the ink color to black The packaging on Instant Grits is terrible because it cannot be read. I compared the Instant Grits package to my General Mills Gluten Free Chex Oatmeal. Both are in orange but Chex Oatmeal is black on an orange background. The Instant Grits is orange on brown paper and in the morning even with 2 cups of coffee in me I cannot easily read the package instructions. btw I am a grad student in design and had to bring in an example of poor packaging. Guess what I took?

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 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 Much better than anticipated Family members warned me against buying Instant Grits - but I bought them anyway. What a delight! Texture, taste and quality was great! I will buy again and again! Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm loving this! It has been quite awhile since I've tried this product and I must say it has greatly improved. The grits are very flavorful, quick and easy to make at work, they aren't high in calories and are filling. Love the convenience of just adding hot water and having breakfast (or lunch) ready in minutes. Can't wait to try all the other flavors. I have the butter flavor now and can't wait to try the bacon, shredded cheese and the sausage.
