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 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 2 out of 5 by from Not so good My wife and I have been eating grits for over 70 years. (She's 73 and I am 75) She purchased these Instant Grits to use when time was important. Why did you have to put SALT in the grits? I know that some people put a little salt in the water when preparing regular Grits, we salt sparingly . If we add bacon, sausage or cheese they all have salt in them. Why is there so much salt in your Grits? Is it for added weight?Fortunately Our son & daughter cook their Grits for our grand kids. And we've already told them about your instant grits.

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!!!
