Flavour & Texture

The array of whole grains and the flax seed make this cereal’s texture hearty and a little bit chewy. The chai flavour is lovely! While I personally found it to be  a little bit strong, this was easily fixed by adding 2 tbsp of regular large flake oats and upping the water to 3/4 of a cup. Even with the flavour slightly diluted, I found that the sweetness level was perfect.

Overall Impression

These are pretty good! There’s a good variety of flavours with a nice mix of traditional and more unique flavours. The measuring cup idea is cute, but since I like to make my oatmeal prepared on a stovetop, I didn’t find it particularly useful. I’m sure the pouch would come in handy for microwave oatmeal though! The serving size is a little small, and it’s good for a light breakfast or snack. You can also make them into more of a meal by topping it with fruit and nuts, or by having something else on the side. At $1.67 for 5 pouches (33 ¢/pouch)  it’s also quite affordable. If you like oatmeal or other hot cereals than I’d definitely give them a try!
