New product review for Influenster: Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal Cup

Whole grain oats, rye, barley and wheat mixed with real fruit and nuts in a single serve cup. Just add hot water or microwave for an instant breakfast on the go. Kosher, OU parve.

This stuff tastes great, and at 290 calories, it should. Plenty of sugar in there! The fruit, nut and grain tastes all come out nice and clear, not mushy or bland. Hot water cooked everything just right, with no "raw" spots. If I worked in an office this would be a good mid afternoon snack.

On the other hand, at $1.79 per cup, it's a bit spendy. You don't really get much in there, so it's really more of a treat than a meal. I don't like that the cup is plastic, and it's "code 7", which is not recyclable. I suppose you could save them for your kid's art projects, but eventually it will end up in the landfill. For that reason, I wouldn't buy it.

Lower the price, use a strong paper cup, put more product in the package, and lower the calorie count and we'd have a winner. Unfortunately, I have to give this product 2 our of 5 stars. :-(
