A question arrived about POM POTATO. It's true that there is a product called Pom-Bears mentioned on the page about Mr Mash Instant Mashed Potato, but it's perhaps a coincidence that the first instant mashed potato ever was in fact called POM POTATO.

It was a war time food, manufactured by Colemans, or can that be Colmans?

Pom Potato was a type of instant potato powder and was of the same style of product as wartime powdered egg. More about this sort of thing can be found at the Imperial War Museum www.iwm.org.uk
