Reviews & Ratings
Quaker Instant Oatmeal - Original is rated 4.6842 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It contains less sugar and no cream I am a Chinese quaker fan. I have been eating this product for more than seven years. Most chinese do not like flavored oat meals. So this original one is much popular. But in China the oat meals are plastic bags packed and are cheaper while the flavored ones are more expensive. I spend a lot of time and energy to find the old memories in the states. There are steel cut and one minute ones. But I like the instant one better. I mean the steel cut ingredient but has been steam and can be prepared with hot water without cooking in the micro oven.I do hope the quaker could produce more of that kind of instant oatmeal without sugar or any other flavored ingredients in it. This is my big hope as a quaker fan from China.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low in Sodium I've enjoyed Quaker oatmeal, all flavors along with the original, since I was a child. As I grew up, I ate it less and less. In spite of my age, I recently had a heart attack and needed to change my diet. I was told that the original Quaker instant oatmeal would be a good change for breakfast, and even for snacks and other meals. I had no problem reacquainting myself with your oatmeal. I was happy to find that this oatmeal has a sodium intake is only 75mg per bag, on top of the almost no fat and a high percentage of Iron. Adding fresh fruit and Splenda is always nice. Now, if I could only talk you into providing a low sodium selection of you flavors, it would be perfect. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have been eating Quaker oats and milk with frozen "wild blueberries" mixed in forever I think.Good healthy breakfast at least 3 times a week. the frozen berries cools down the oatmeal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No added sugar! This is a great low carb - low sugar building block to add your own splenda brown sugar and raisins, or whatever fruit and spices you enjoy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Many Bugs Found 3 bugs in one pack of instant oatmeal this morning--it was the original flavor--there were two carcasses and one was still alive and crawling around in the cereal!!!!Now I suppose one could look at it as added protein for breakfast--but somehow my desire to eat oatmeal vanished rather quickly upon seeing the bug crawling around in what I was soon to consume. If it was possible I would certainly like to add a picture!!! Think I have eaten my very last serving of Quaker Oats oatmeal!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it It is addictive. A wonderful start to the morning to boast energy and carry you through to lunch. Sometimes, in the evening I even have it as a snack too. I add more milk to it when it comes out of the microwave and enjoy every morsel. It is a very satisfying treat and inside you know you are doing your body some good nourishment and avoiding high sugar snack foods.,
