I have oatmeal 4 or 5 times a week. It’s not exciting, it’s nutritional. I keep telling myself this as I choke it down. My old trainer told me to try mixing protein powder in with the oatmeal to “liven it up”. What I got was a congealed mass that reminded me of plaster of paris and made me want to puke. It’s not exciting, it’s healthy.
It seems the fine folks at Quaker recognize that people like me (ok, 6 year olds, but that’s not what’s important here) choke the pasty blob at the bottom of their bowls as fast as humanly possible to avoid the texture and/or taste (or lack thereof). They’ve come up with a new type of oatmeal with hatching candy dinosaurs. I am not sure whether I should be embarassed or not, but if these make their way North I’ll be giving them a whirl.
I’m not proud, but at least I’ll be entertained the first packet or two until I discover how wretched said dinos taste. Thanks for the link goes to gizmodo.
