Reviews & Ratings
Quaker Old Fashioned Grits - Regular White is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Original but hard to find I grew up with old fashioned grits and love them. Grits with butter, grits with bacon, grits with fried chicken livers. We didn't get them but once a month, but when we did, I couldn't get enough. Now there are several restaurants here in Columbus that serve variations on shrimp and grits, and I'm thrilled. However, its impossible to find the original old fashioned grits here in Columbus. The local grocery stores have lots of instant grits, but never the "Old Fashioned". Only one Walmart had them, now even they have discontinued them. I am forced to buy them online. The old fashioned grits still maintains more of its grain texture when cooked so you feel like your eating something, rather then just a creamy sauce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the REAL "old fashioned" grits... The real old fashioned grits are perfect. I have trouble finding them in groceries. Every kind is "Instant", not the real 20-25 minute cooking type. The instant is like sand!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old recipe I have enjoyed Quaker Grits (Old Fashion) for years but lately it's taste and texture is gooey. If it ain't broke don't fix it applies here. Bring back the old recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My new box of Old Fashioned Grits was not as good I purchased a box of the Old Fashioned Grits a few months ago and when cooked they were delicious. I am pretty sure the box said they were made with corn. My new box says it is made with hominy and they were just terrible. What happened? I will never buy them again from Quaker as long as they are made with hominy--it is just tasteless!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am disappointed. I have eaten old fashioned (non-instant) grits for 73 years and your company did a great job until you decided to make them creamy. Ugh! Why? It is not old fashioned any more, it is just one more step toward instant cooking. I am very disappointed. Thank you for the opportunity to let you know

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love old fashioned grits. I live in the Humble, TX area I CANNOT find them anywhere I use to buy them at HEB, they reset the store and do Not carry them any longer all they carry are instant grits which are disgusting. I have looked at Kroger and Walmart all they carry are the instant grits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old fashioned grits are hard to find anywhere I've been looking in every grocery store and Old Fashioned Grits have vanished. A local grocer order some and receiver Quick Cooking Grits. Not the same. Area suppliers need to start ordering these for distribution!
