Best store-bought oatmeal (surprisingly!)

  • Dec 13, 2008

Simple Harvest Multigrain Hot Cereal is a new line of hot cereals from Quaker. Like its other oatmeal products, these also come in separate, single-serve packets. The base is a mix of wheat, oatmeal, and barley grains. 

The whole mix is pre-seasoned and come in three flavors: apples with cinnamon / vanilla, honey, and almonds / maple brown sugar with pecans. 

And they're amazingly delicious. I haven't had better oatmeal at cafes, restaurants, or any other store brands before. The maple brown sugar with pecans flavor is probably my favorite, just this bowl of carmalized goodness. When I first tried it, I'm sure my eyes bugged out of my face. It was nutty, sweet, substantial, but also a delicious caramel undertone. Amazingly good, and still very healthy. 

My only criticism of the Simple Harvest line is that they can stand to cut back on the amount of sugar in it. It tastes like it has probably a 1/2 tablespoon too much sugar. If they could perfect this one thing, well, I'm sold.

At college I eat this pretty much every day for breakfast.   It's healthy, it's filling, and it's delectable.  Mmmm.

Sure, Quakers is cheap and readily available. However, there are definitely MUCH better tasting oatmeals (I think even making your own oatmeal likely would come out better). Quakers has a consistency that is either too runny or too grainy depending on how much water you add (I have never had it be perfect though).
