The Chronic Consumer

I buy things — all the time!

Oat Revolution Cinnamon Roll

I love eating oatmeal for breakfast, but need the flavored kind. I cannot eat plain oatmeal even if I dress it up with syrup, honey, or other sweeteners. I usually eat Quaker stuff, but since I had a coupon for something called Oat Revolution, I decided to give it a try. I chose Cinnamon Roll flavor, and thought it was pretty good!

Unlike Quaker instant oatmeal, Oat Revolution isn’t made by adding boiling water to the mix. Instead, you add cold water (using the individual serving pouch as the measuring cup) before heating the whole thing up in the microwave for 90 seconds. It was fast and easy, and though I prefer to measure my water with a measuring cup, I see how the pouch might be convenient for some people.

Unfortunately, the taste was just OK. Quaker also makes a cinnamon roll flavor (or they did at one point; not sure if it’s still available), and I distinctly remember that product being far more flavorful than this one. I wasn’t expecting Cinnabon in a bowl, but Oat Revolution was kind of bland. I can eat what’s left of the box I bought, but I’m not sure that I’ll be back for more!
