I'm a plain oatmeal fan. I love plain oatmeal. I don't care for Maple and Brown Sugar... or Apple Cinnamon... or Banana. I just like Plain Oatmeal.
But I also LOVE vanilla. Anything vanilla, I will devour.
I was grocery shopping a few days ago and I remembered that I'm out of my favorite Quaker Plain Oatmeal. I grab a new box and push my cart. Then I see it in the corner of my eye: Kashi Go Lean Truly Vanilla Oatmeal.
Hmm... Go Lean? Sure... but why is there 40 more calories per serving? Hmm... Vanilla? Sure that sounds awesome!!!
Vanilla > 40 more calories, so I went with it.
Opening the packets, you can see the vanilla powder it comes with. Not really eye appealling, but I guess I'll just wait it out. I mixed in my soy milk and prepped the microwave.
After 2 minutes in the 'wave, the solution was still a bit watery.. but I might've put too much milk to compensate for the powder. It smelled a bit too "bleh". Didn't even smell like oatmeal... or vanilla.
I take my first bite. I nearly gag. It doesn't even taste like oatmeal.. but I kinda can taste the vanilla. But not the kind of vanilla I was hoping for... it more like a day old melted vanilla ice cream. Gross.
What did you think of this review?
