Rated 1 out of 5 by from What has happened to my oatmeal? I have been eating Quaker oats all of my life. Suddenly they are like eating glue. Some kind of powdery paste. What have you done to them? I am seriously unhappy. The whole world is reeling and rocking. I need something to be normal. It would be nice if that were my breakfast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GMO I like Quaker Oatmeal both Instant, Steel Cut and Old Fashioned. Have eaten since I was a small child, and found out today it all contains GMO. So I and my family stopped using it. We will use Bob Red Mill Organic Oatmeal. I hope Quaker STOPS using GMO ingredients and USES NON GMO and I will continue to purchase thisproduct. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gluten Free Status of Quaker Rolled Oats I think I understand why Quaker can't guarantee that its oats are gluten free. Should a "weed" wheat plant be sown in a field of oats, there is the possibility that some boxes of oats could contain a little bit of wheat. Quaker is being very honest when it says it cannot guarantee this won't happen. However, I infer from the information I've been able to find on this and other sites that oats without contamination are gluten free. Therefore, I'll continue to buy my favorite Quaker oats even for gluten-free cooking and baking. I've never had a problem with them over my entire life. I love the Costco packs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 'new' packaging! I eat Old Fashioned rolled oats at a minimum of 6 days/week and it's the main ingredient of my favorite no-bake cookies. I buy the 42oz canister and the handy pouring punch out is a real up-grade to using other brands. It sounds a bit 'market-y' to be gushing over a punch-out pouring area but it makes a huge difference when I just want the stuff to go into the bowl or measuring cup without getting on the counter! I bought another brand when the Quaker's was out of stock & learned my lesson - I was hating breakfast until I finished the canister and opened up Quaker's again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Rediscovered" oatmeat at age 60! I have been looking for healthy ways to get fiber and "beta glucans" into my diet. Regular oats - more so than quick oats - were highly recommended. Quaker has been the oatmeal standard since childhood, so I looked at a box of Old Fashioned Oats at the store a couple of weeks ago. When I saw they could be cooked in the microwave, I was SOLD. They were so naturally delicious that I didn't even need to add butter and sugar, like Mom used to do to get us to eat oatmeal as kids. There are now 4 1/2 boxes in my cupboard!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 'Lower Sugar" I recently purchased your 'Lower Sugar' product. I expected it to have lower sugar than normal and taste less sweet. Not the case. It was so sickling sweet I checked the package and learned it now has sucralose in it!!!What were you thinking???

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2 Mushy I came to the web site to see if we were buying the wrong product. The oat flakes are not as big and there is more "dust/flour" in the product on a percentage basis. I recall a version of the rolled oats that had almost all large flakes. I don't see what I am looking for here. Winter is coming and this "oatmeal loyalist" wants the good stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Our answer to a diabetic diet My husband has diabetes and had a hard time regulating his blood sugar, until we found Quaker Old Fashioned. It was the answer, he lost weight and his Blood sugar has been controlled since. 2006. We eat Quaker Oats everyday for Breakfast. In winter we eat hot oats topped with plain fat free Yoghurt, sunflower seeds and berries. Yummy! In Spring we switch to plain Old fashioned oats topped with half a banana then plain Yoghurt, fruit and sunflower seeds. I also make bread and add Oats also oatcakes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There has DEFINATELY been a change. There has definitely been a change! The rolled oats are no longer "rolled" as they had been in the past. I have noted these changes have occurred since PESICO bought Quaker. My guess:1 - they sold off the manufacturing plants and contract buy the product, hence little to no control over the product.or2 - they have changed the processing to reduce mfg cost and improve profits.I no longer purchase Quaker oats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I eat the Old Fashioned every morning and love it. I am writing regarding the pull top. It should be redesigned. It is very difficult to try to pull the top off. When it finally does pull off everything pulls off the whole thing. Then every morning I have to push the plastic ring down all the way around the top of the box and then push the lid down. It's not good, A waste of time and frustrating to me every morning. Also, your Questions and Comments phone number 1-800-367-6287 is incorrect. I called to talk to a rep. regarding these problems and left a message. I received a call from another company saying Quaker Oats did not receive my message and that they get these calls all the time. You definitely have to do something about this problem. Then I tried to find another number on your website and you do not have one. You really should I had to go through all of this to tell you these problems. It's not good. You need to correct these problems for the consumer. You have a great healthy products. Your customer wants to call and talk to a rep. My time is precious taking care of my one year old grandson and here I am writing this message when I should just be able to pick up the phone and quickly talk to a rep. Hope I have helped your company with these suggestions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Salty Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal We have been buying the lower sugar maple and brown sugar oatmeal for a while. The last two boxes we have say they are good till 12/15, but they taste like all salt and no brown sugar. We have opened up several of the packets in both boxes, but they taste awful. Was there a recall on the product or should it taste so salty?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, filling and delicious I like that I can use the microwave for a single serving or cook 3-4 servings on the stove and reheat the portions in the microwave for a few days of meals. I love oatmeal for breakfast or dinner and it fits in perfectly helping me follow a Weight Watchers diet. I add Splenda usually or fruit. Frozen strawberries or blue berries seem to work best. I sometimes add in a splash of skim milk but not always. 1/2 cup of uncooked oats is 4 Points Plus and I admit for dinner to eating 3/4 cup. Delicious, filling and good for me too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quaker Oatmeal is now different! I had eaten your Old Fashioned Quaker oatmeal for over 60 years but stopped buying it over a year ago because it changed and their were pieces of oats that didn't seem to cook properly. I always cooked it in a double boiler buy also have tried the microwave. I've tried some other brands too with out too much sucess. Would not object to paying more if you kept the older products. Are you by any chance using GMO oats? Something just isn't the same. A lot of breads are also changing their texture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dates, raisins and walnuts - good as homemade I have a oatmeal casserole recipe that was the best ever, but after trying the instant oatmeal flavor- dates, raisins and walnuts I will not be doing all the work to bake this. This is the best oatmeal and it is so easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best way to cook Quaker Oats oatmeal My Quaker Oats oatmeal comes out perfect every time using the following method for stove-top cooking: Bring (unsalted) water to a full boil using the High setting and stir in oatmeal. Continue stirring constantly while cooking on High for 5 minutes. If it bubbles to the top of the pan, lift the pan for a few seconds and place back on the burner, continuing to stir and cook on High. This works every time for me --- no mush, just nice textured, nutty flavor. I usually top with just butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Oatmeal A bowl of warm oatmeal is what I love to have for breakfast, along beside a glass of milk and maybe orange juice. My quaker oatmeal taste great. Even as a child I can remember waking up to the breakfast table. A bowl of oatmeal was waiting you. And in my family, the oatmeal was breakfast. I believe if we had eggs and grits, it was something special was going to happen that day. Everyday oatmeal was on the breakfast menu. The different with oatmeal back then and today is, their are a variety of new flavors to choose from which makes eating oatmeal better ,and it does taste better. I enjoyed a flavor to my tastebud, instead of eating plain oatmeal. This is a great oatmeal for anyone who likes change. I love the way quaker oatmeal has changed, they have came along way in their style, taste , and design ot their products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Old Fashioned Oats is no longer old fashioned why R-U destroying a once wonderful product? My grandmother (deceased 45yrs)ONLY used this brand. NOW hulls, chaff, container weak & spilling on store shelf, smells like brn sugar added (now posted to ingred),slimy after cooking. STOP WHAT U-R DOING and go back to the OLD product. You must make for other brands as theirs are awful too. Where can I find the awesome kind? I quit buying your brand 2yrs ago and switched to store brand and theirs is following suite.
