What the what? This was supposed to post on November 20th and for some reason didn’t. (Thanks WordPress, for never alerting me to this fact?) After my vacation, I was too busy playing catchup to notice. It’s now a month late , so I feel extra bad about never posting a review after the people at MyOatmeal.com were so kind to send me tasty oats to sample. Rather than delay it longer to re-write the post, you can all see how excited I was about my vacation before I took it, ha.
Greetings, everyone! I’m probably in Jamaica today or on a big awesome ship, but I couldn’t leave you without a post. The wonderful people over at MyOatmeal.com sent me some delicious oatmeal to review. Since I’m apparently bad at being a blogger, I’ve been eating and enjoying this oatmeal but forgetting to share this delight with you. They sent me three bags which I built myself using their “build your blend” feature, so I’ll be reviewing each of those separately.
You know I can’t just review a product as-is. I always like to eat something plain and then transform it to be even more amazing. My first bag was of Graham Cracker Berry blend (creative name, I know) which started with the signature smash blend of oats (instant, steel cut, 5 grain oats, and flax) flavored like graham cracker crust and speckled with dried strawberries. I don’t know about you, but that mix was just screaming for some peanut butter, so I whipped this into a breakfast cookie with a dose of peanut butter.
I got 3 small (1 pound) bags of oatmeal for around $30 with shipping. The price depends a lot on what you put into it, but it’s always going to be more expensive than buying a plain bag of oatmeal at the store. If you like to get creative with your flavors, MyOatmeal.com offers incredible variety and customization that you aren’t going to find anywhere else. Plus customer service is amazing! When you’re on the site, there’s a button that comes up on the bottom of the screen to chat with the CEO when he’s in the office to get ideas for flavors – I thought that was beyond awesome!
