Taste Test Tuesday: Quaker Real Medley’s

Good day foodies! We’ve made it to another Tuesday. This week we’re talking oatmeal. The weather’s been changing a lot lately and sometimes you just need something that reminds you of your childhood. Quaker has released a product line of oatmeal called Real Medleys. As you have noticed McDonald’s and Starbucks have both started carrying oatmeal too.

I love oatmeal, I always have. It was the one thing growing up that my mother knew I would eat and not waste…lol. I like added things into my oatmeal, whether it be fruit, nuts or brown sugar. So these Quaker Real Medley’s are a real treat. There are for different medley combinations.
  • Summer Berry
  • Cherry Pistachio
  • Peach Almond
  • Apple Walnut
The Peach Almond oatmeal was delicious. Nice size chunks of peaches and slivers of almonds. The crunch of the almonds and the sweetness of the warm peaches is definitely a cozy fit. Apple Walnut oatmeal has a little surprise for you, there are also some tart cranberries in there. Crunchy walnuts and chopped pieces of sweet apples with the tanginess of the cranberries is like a party in your mouth. Sweet sun-ripened cherries, roasted almonds, and tasty pistachios create the Cherry Pistachio oatmeal. Pistachios aren’t a very popular nut when it comes to flavor combinations but Quaker did an awesome job with this one. Don’t want any nuts in your oatmeal? No problem. Check out the Summer Berry oatmeal with juicy strawberries, sweets raspberries, and plump blueberries. Fruit and oatmeal is such a great combination you don’t want to miss this one either.
All you have to do is pour hot water into the little cup, stir and enjoy. You can also add water and put it in the microwave, especially if you are on the go. I also tried milk with mine and it was just as yummy.
