minimum dose size?

Are there any good instant coffee brands at big box stores like Walmart (in the US)?

I recently went on a rabbit trail of instant coffee concoctions on YouTube, and bought some Folgers Instant Coffee to try it out. I actually quite enjoyed some of the instant coffee lattes I've been trying, but I know Folgers is generally considered pretty low quality in the coffee world, so I was wondering if there are any higher quality alternatives that are readily available at stores (and preferably that don't cost an arm and a leg).

I've really only ever had cheap coffee, so the bar is set pretty low. The thing that entices me about instant coffee is the convenience. I have a coffee pot on a timer I use for mornings, but for other times I don't always want to bother with brewing an entire pot of coffee when I need a pick me up, or if I want some coffee at night on occasion, having some instant decaf is convenient.

If there really isn't anything worth considering at someplace like Walmart, what alternative would you suggest?
