While trying to log my Dinner for this evening I realized that I can not find the calorie count for a large order of mashed potatoes from KFC anywhere. The only large order in the database here says 1 serving is 1 cup but I'm pretty sure there is more than 1 cup in an order but I'm really bad at estimating how many cups there are. KFC's website only has nutritional value for an individual side. So I figured if I at least knew how many ounces were in it I could figure it out but I can't find this info either. I googled, I searched, I even called KFC's 1-800 customer service number but even they didn't know! She said they aren't provided with that information but she could put in a report for me to try to find out.
So my question...Does anyone out there know what size a large mashed potatoes actually is? Or has someone else maybe already had their report completed?

I do but I looked on the bottom to see if it had the volume listed (cause some do) but no luck =(

Is that the size you get with a "family" meal? If so, I would imagine 1 container has 4 servings, since the typ. family is 4 people. Just a guess, but better than beating your brain over it much longer :-)

I saw that page. It is also just for an individual side, not a large order. But thank you anyway =)

Fill the container with water and pour it into a one cup measuring cup and dump it out, fill, dump, until you count 'em all.

See, I have a lot of experience with measuring large amounts of food. LOLlaugh

The food industry typically sticks with the same sizes for everything. I would imagine it would be a quart. Things usually run cup, bowl, pint, quart. I would find it ridiculous for them to make an awkward size that was 48 ounces or something. Plus a quart would make sense as the avg family is 4 people.

My friend and I split one as our lunch the other day! Yum! We counted it as 4 servings in the family size!

I looked up the company that supplies KFC's container for the mashed potatoes and there are 160z. in it. And if you measure there are 2 cups or 4 individual servings. One serving is 120 cal, making the whole container 480.
