“ Brand: Quaker / Type: Oats „
I try to make a conscious effort to make sure I eat healthily as I am worried about putting on weight. As most people probably know, eating porridge for breakfast is a great way to start the day. Personally, I find porridge alone quite boring and tasteless. This is where this product comes in, Quaker Oats So Simple Raspberry.
This product comes in a cardboard box which is about 8 inches tall by 5 inches wide. The box has all the usual info such as product name, nutritional information etc. Inside the box, there are 10 sachets which contain the porridge.
A box of these cost £1.78 which I think is really good value for money considering you get 10 sachets in each box. This works out that each serving costs 17p - now 17p for breakfast isn't bad!
This is another thing I love about this product, it is so simple to make. You literally pour the contents of one sachet into a bowl. You then fill the empty sachet with milk (there is a line on the sachet to show you where you should fill it up to) and then you simply pour the milk over the contents of the sachet in the bowl. Then you simply pop the bowl into the microwave for 2 and a half minutes and you will have the perfect bowl of porridge.
I think this product is really yummy. Admittedly, the raspberry flavour does taste artificial but I still really like the taste, it is quite sweet and stands out among the oats of the porridge. If you find that porridge by itself is too bland for you, then I think you would enjoy this product. It has the right amount of raspberry flavouring for each serving, as although you can obviously taste the raspberry, it does not overpower the porridge at all. The consistency of the porridge is perfect after cooking it for the recommended time. It is not to stodgy and not too runny. I find this quite amazing because normally when I try to make porridge, I can never make it right.
In summary I would highly recommend this product. If you normally find yourself in a rush in the morning and this is your excuse to skip breakfast, simply because you don't have time, then this product would be really suitable. It takes two minutes to cook and you can have a nice healthy breakfast. I actually have quite a large appetite and have found that this product fills me up until lunchtime and I don't feel the need to snack in-between which can only be a good thing. Each serving only has 132 calories too. 100% recommended.
