Starbucks Oatmeal Review

Normally when I am on a trip I pack breakfast foods since I am a cereal or oatmeal girl not really eggs or restaurant breakfasts.

When I pack oatmeal I make hot water with the coffee maker and mix it with oatmeal packets.

When I pack cereal I buy a non-fat milk from Starbucks (or wherever) and pour the cereal right into the cup.

I packed cereal since it had been so warm I thought it would be fine. Well, it was freezing in the morning in Paso Robles! So, I decided to ditch the cold cereal and tried the oatmeal from Starbucks.

Starbucks oatmeal comes in a cute little papper cup. They offer 3 toppings: brown sugar, nuts and dried fruit. I chose all 3.

foodies-746I think the oatmeal was too watery and not creamy at all. I make my oatmeal with half milk (or milk sub) and half water and a sliced up naner – it is so much creamier that way. This, in comparison, is a disappointment. I didn’t like this oatmeal at all – even with all the toppings mixed in. Cindy likes it, but she doesn’t know good oatmeal. Cin, come over my place and I’ll make you some of the good stuff!foodies-744

    Hey, i know good oatmeal… i think the starbucks oatmeal is a great THOUGHT, but it could be better. If I get it, I ask for not too much water, then put some milk from the condiment bar in it. Its not fab, but its better than McDonalds!

    Marafaye, true that it’s better than McDonalds. If I get it again I will def ask for less water and put some milk in.

    Hangry – I bet the oatmeal you make is ten times better
