Ooo-la-la. Look at that box. It’s got the wild blueberries plastered on the front with images of savory oatmeal love. It’s got the muffin in the background to make you salivate with joy as you anticipate the instant oatmeal of your dreams.
Too bad it turns nightmare.
This, my friends, is a wild catastrophe. Quaker True Delights Wild Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal is the sister of pure nastiness and the brother of a barf-fest.
I followed the directions perfectly, but it came out too watery despite the proper liquid measurements. So I gave myself a do-over and fed it to Health-hater Husband. This is what happened next…..
- He made a frightful face that made me question his good looks.
- He got up out of his chair.
- He walked out the house through the back door.
- He spit the oatmeal onto the grass.
And then he said, half-screaming….“It’s got a fake azz synthentic taste! Blueberry muffins are delicious. This oatmeal is not!”
There is nothing delightful about this blueberry muffin flavor. It also contains both sugar AND the high fructose corny-ness. Why would Quaker do that?
