but this one looks pretty decent

the ingredients are clean and i'm thinking these are a solid alternative when i'm at work and don't have the time to measure out a cup of quick cooking oats. these will make it much easier to count the cals in my breakfast.

anyway,
have any of you tried this brand? tastes alright? fills you up? almost as good as old fashioned oats?

any reviews/critiques would be appreciated

I don't get why so many people are against boxed, flavored, instant oatmeal. I mean if it fits into your daily calories, and if it tastes good, why not?

Kashi and Nature's Path are two of my favs, and they kick @$$. Even quaker tastes good, but they're a bit more "processed" than the others.

I eat Arrowhead Mills Organic 4 Grain plus Flax seed oatmeal...it's the ****! Takes a little more time to cook though.

+1 on the Kashi. Bottom line, I'm flat out not spending 25 min cooking oatmeal. Period. Plus I don't eat enough of the stuff to make a huge dif.

Why do people feel the need to cook oats on the stove? You can cook up Quaker or McCann's in the microwave in the same amount of time it takes to cook "instant" packages. Steel cut oats are the exception. But you can cook these the night before and simply re-heat.

Oats are just oats to me...I go for the Quakers raw, ground up in my morning shake (whey+milk+almond butter). The oats add a nice texture and flavor.

Too bad I'm on keto atm so I can't enjoy that everyday. Woop woop for carb ups

There's nothing wrong with pre-packaged oats.

Yeah I used to microwave them... but I guess the whole scalding hot and flavorless thing just got old.
