Quaker Instant Oatmeal – Good Idea / Bad Idea

Good Idea: Apple Cinnamon

If you like apples and cinnamon, you will love apple cinnamon flavored oatmeal. It tastes a little like apple pie. There are small chunks of apple that give the oatmeal texture. I also add pecans from time to time to enhance my breakfast experience. Of all the different oatmeal flavors, this is one my favorites. I think you will like it too.

Bad Idea (to me at least): Hazelnut Latte

I chose this because I like hazelnut flavored coffee. It did have the coffee, mocha, nutty flavor like I expected. I did not expect how sweet it was. It was like I was drinking the syrup from one of the gas station cappuccino machines before they mix it with the coffee. I double the amount of water in my oatmeal, but that did not help. I could not finish the bowl because it was so saccharin sweet. I ended up eating the few hazelnuts out of the cereal and throwing the rest away. On paper Hazelnut Latte seemed like a good idea, but the execution of that idea was not tasty at all. Unless you like drinking straight syrup, I would not advise buying this flavor.
