A few weekends ago, as I was clipping coupons, I came across an offer for Quaker Real Medleys oatmeal. It’s no secret that I love oatmeal in the mornings, so I cut out the coupon & kept my eyes peeled for the new product to hit shelves at my local Target.
I finally spotted the pre-portioned oatmeal this week & chose the summer berry flavor to try first.
To make the oatmeal, I simply filled the cup with water & put it in the microwave for 45 seconds (you can also make it with boiling water). I gave the oatmeal a stir & took it with me to eat at work.
I was pleasantly surprised by the taste & texture of this product. It’s very different from other pre-packaged oatmeal I’ve had in the past. The summer berry flavor included multigrains, strawberries, raspberries, & blueberries.
Besides the fantastic taste, I liked that this oatmeal had a simple ingredient list—nothing in there that I can’t pronounce. 😉
My true test for this product was to see whether or not it kept me feeling full until lunch time. (I eat breakfast around 7:00AM & lunch around 11:00AM.) I pack my usual overnight oats with chia seeds, fruit, & nut butter to help keep my feeling satiated, but I was missing a few of those elements this morning. Happily, I didn’t experience any tummy grumbling & was perfectly content until lunch time.
I definitely want to try out the three other flavors – cherry pistachio, peach almond, & apple walnut.
If you’re like me & usually eat your breakfast on-the-go or at work, I definitely recommend giving this oatmeal a try!
Have you tried this product yet? Thoughts? Where do you typically eat your breakfast? I wish I had more time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast at home, but it’s just not feasible!
