OMG! So great! It tasted like a loaded baked potato, but better! My husband is diabetic, and suffered a small stroke less than 2 weeks ago (he is doing well), however, he needs to eat better, and he LOVED this! Plus, I wanted to try it out before Thanksgiving, so worth it! I did use lite sour cream.
