Kellogg's Special K Nourish Oatmeal- This oatmeal jumped into my cart after I read the flavor- Maple Brown Sugar Crunch. I was really excited to eat it, especially with the nuts that you get to mix in. After I let the hot water do its thing, I reopened the lid, I stirred in the nuts and the wonderful aroma mad my nose and my brain so happy. I was excited!
Sadly, Special K Maple Brown Sugar Crunch was not as good as I expected. To me, the flavor was good, but the texture was not the best. I was happy for the mix in nuts because they helped with adding a crunch. I love foods with a crunch. I went ahead and ate the entire bowl, because it tasted okay and it did have 5 grams of fiber, which is a plus.
Kathleen's Quick Oats- This oatmeal landed in my pantry as a result from an HEB Meal Deal, so it was basically free. Once again, I chose an oatmeal that was Brown Sugar flavor. I've never heard of this brand of oatmeal so I had no idea of what to expect.
After the water soaked into the oats, I lifted the lid and was happy with the aroma, but not so much the texture. It had the texture of baby food, but with 4 grams of fiber, I went ahead and gave it a try. After my first bite, I decided to try and give the rest of the oatmeal to one of the daycare babies that I take care of. He was hesitant at first, but took two bites and then said 'All done!'. Just like myself, he was not a fan, so the rest ended up in the trash.
Quaker Real Medley's Oatmeal- At one time I had an oatmeal addiction, so I would stock up on this brand and this flavor. After trying two different brands of ready made oatmeal, I made a decision that Quaker Real Medleys is the only oatmeal for me! This oatmeal is so good. It has apples, cranberries, and walnuts. Like I said before, crunch is good. This oatmeal tastes fresh and it has 5 grams of fiber. SN- It does have a few extra grams of sugar (22 to be exact) and 290 calories but the 6 grams of protein and the 5 grams of fiber make it okay.
Let me know if you've had any of these and what you thought.
