I love to cook. I love to eat. I can't use the toaster without making a mess.

I was so excited about this oatmeal. You know the saying don't judge a book by it's cover? Well, don't judge a food product by it's box.
Yes, the Mmmmuffins box got me good. Something about the colors and the picture of the muffin just sold me. I'm a huge oatmeal fan, so I figured why not try out a new brand. Maple is my favorite flavor, so I didn't think I could go wrong.
Worst. Oatmeal. Ever.
So plain! The consistency was more sticky than "thick and hearty." It lacked that little sweetness that makes oatmeal good. I suppose if you added in a tablespoon of brown sugar it would be do-able but kiss the healthy aspect of oatmeal bye bye after you do that. I was super bummed. Back to Quaker, I guess.
But wait, I also recently tried the Trader Joe's Maple Brown Sugar oatmeal (not apples and cinnamon, as pictured). Also not that exciting. What a bust. I mean, Quaker is the king, but I was looking for some substitutes. Guess I'll keep on truckin'.
