Thinking Outside the Oatmeal Box

Saw this on an endcap at my local Walmart. Given the baby boomers who grew up watching cartoons with a bowl of sugary cereal, I completely get this concept. Here

What General Mills is being told about the oatmeal market. Here

  1. Meh. I never developed a taste for sweetened and flavored oatmeal. It’s much better with a dab of butter and a sprinkling of salt.

    If you’re truly adventurous, add a little freshly ground black pepper, preferably Lampong. But just a leeeetle!

  2. I put some cereals right up there with junk food. Plain oatmeal is probably the best out of all of them – steel cut. I’m a lo-carber so I don’t eat that stuff nor do I miss it.

  3. Notice that it’s never, ever healthy food portrayed. Nor is truth about how to actually be lean and healthy ever shown on the mind control portal (TV); instead they constantly suggest un-truth by showing a sweaty young model in front of a “Mirror” or on a Peloton (“Come on, you can do it!”)- now go have that sugary caffeine bomb as a reward) lol. But it’s really ~ ALL about item 1 above.

    Hmm, think there might actually be something to this concealment of the truth and non-stop pushing instead of UNhealthy UNtruth (sugar, caffiene, etc)?

    Nah.. “they” would never conspire to make us unhealthy and mentally dependent on big medical/pharma, would they?

  4. Steel cut is my favorite too. Even as a kid I never like the sugary stuff (but I didn’t like oatmeal at the time either!)

  5. If it said artificial colors, flavors, additives, binding agents, allowable amounts of bug parts mixed with sugar and oats nobody would buy it.

  6. Wait!

    Using liberal logic that Ivermectin is a horse medicine ONLY, then oats are a horse food ONLY, so the Government should ABLSOLUTELY step in to make sure people ONLY eat foods CURRENTLY approved by the Government for human consumption…/s

  7. Boiled old fashion Oats with a little brown sugar and cream or 1/2 and 1/2. It works for me. I don’t know why people have to have gimmicks every day or two. Flat bread, what? Two slices for 3 bucks. No, standard sliced bread more for your buck.

  8. “…baby boomers who grew up watching cartoons with a bowl of sugary cereal…”

    Those were the days! Saturday morning, 06:00 a.m., in your pajamas on a rug in the den with a bowl of… you choose, for me it was Wheaties.

    I guess kids today aren’t doing that. Probably true because real cartoons aren’t on TV anymore.

  9. Cut the sugar out of your diet and everything sweet,i.e. diet soda….. makes a huge difference.

  10. I still buy Lucky Charms occasionally.
    I love Captn Crunch but it cuts the roof of my mouth.

    I would buy this sugary sweet oatmeal…but I’m not a Boomer. Gen X baby!

  11. My glucose levels would never forgive me.
    It took me forever to get rid of my craving for sweets, not going back now.

  12. Are we going to get a bunch of trolls up in here yelling at us for eating horse food? Probably not, since it’s gluten-free.

    Gluten…remember when everybody was afraid ofvit?

  13. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day

    Another lie propagated by the government with the aide of the medical community

    Fast and don’t eat sweats. I hate to admit it but that includes alcohol

  14. I eat organic quick oats made with organic low fat milk and then a little maple syrup whenever I don’t know what else to eat for dinner–husband gets the leftover meat and vegs but I don’t mind! Fills me up. Oh and I usually grind some flax seed on top.

  15. Protein balls. 1.5 cups Old Fashion Oats, 1 cup Peanut Butter, 1 cup Protein Powder, 1 tbsp Chia seeds, 4 tbsp Honey, splash of Vanilla, add mini Choco Chips and/or Coconut Flakes to taste. Roll into golfball size balls and refrigerate up to 5 days.

  16. I’ve got a killer recipe for peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. The last thing I would consider them to be is healthy. But they’re damn good!

  17. “I ate dicks for breakfast.”

    Not as many as I did! And still DO!
    And most of the ones I ate had been shoved up my ass the night before!
    Can you top that?

  18. Oats, peas, wheat, potatoes, rice and barley are all what you eat when you have no food. Survival rations they are, something to live on, never… unless you have to. Corn too.
