Paid Review + Giveaway: Quaker Oatmeal Real Medleys

| April 29, 2012 | 43 Comments

Getting the kids to eat their breakfast has always been a challenge for many busy moms on-the-go just like me. Just simply not enough time and patience in my case. We always resort to grabbing a banana or yogurt and quickly hopping on the car as they gulp down their food as we head to school. So when Quaker Oats contacted me about checking our their new single serving cups of  Quaker Real Medleys, I had to try.

I knew how much my three children would love to have some satisfying and hot breakfast once in awhile and Real Medleys did not disappoint! It was so also very easy to do. I just added water  and microwaved it for 45 seconds. Real Medleys have some delicious blend of hearty rolled oats and multi-grains with real fruit and crunchy nuts. They came in 4 flavors:

    • Apple Walnut
    • Summer Berry
    • Peach Almond (this one is my favorite! YUM!)
    • Cherry Pistachio


Check out the taste-test video below. My daughter joined in on the fun. You’ll see how much she loved it!
