Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But let's face it, sometimes we don't really have the time to eat a good breakfast. Toast & bagels can get boring. Pop-tarts aren't exactly the best for you. But wait, oatmeal would be prefect since you can change the flavor so easily by adding things to it or getting the flavored varieties. But sometimes just the hassle of measuring water (or milk) is enough to cross it off your list of options. The end result is usually no breakfast. (Insert sad face here.)

Have I got the solution for you!

"You’ve never seen oatmeal like this. Packed with wholesome multi-grains and chunks of real fruit and nuts. Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal It comes in a convenient, portable package so you can eat it anywhere! It’s so easy to make… Just add water and microwave. No mess, no bowl to clean up."

I received my Quaker Real Medley Summer Berry Oatmeal in my Holiday VoxBox '12 from Influenster. The packaging alone had me eager to try it.

See the fill line?

I couldn't wait to make it, can you tell? Inside is your dry oatmeal & 4 grain blend, along with fruit (& nuts in most). Simply add water (I prefer milk) to the fill line, give it a good stir & microwave for 45 seconds. Give it another stir & enjoy! It's also the perfect serving size. Not too much, not too little.

And look at that. Those are whole blueberries! Obviously the strawberries couldn't be whole (& I think my raspberries fell apart while I was stirring). Do you know what that means? You don't have to add any extra sweetener. The real fruit gives the perfect touch of sweetness.


• Summer Berry - sweet strawberries, red delicious raspberries, and plump whole blueberries
•Apple Walnut - delicious walnuts, sweet apples, and tasty cranberries
•Peach Almond - sweet peaches and roasted almonds
•Cherry Pistachio - whole, sun-ripened cherries, roasted almonds, and tasty pistachios

I would tell you my favorite, but I haven't gotten to try them all yet. I wouldn't want to show any favoritism, so I think I'll need to try every flavor. At least twice. Although Peach Almond & Cherry Pistachio sound amazing!
