Taste Test: All Quaker Instant Oatmeal Flavors (with Reviews)

Quaker Instant Oatmeal is likely one of the most popular oatmeal products in the United States. When your average person thinks about oatmeal, they probably have a vision of that handsome gentleman that adorns Quaker oats products. You have likely at least tried one or two flavors yourself at some point in your life. I thought it would be fun to do some small reviews of each flavor currently available in the US.

Keep in mind, Quaker Instant Oatmeal, while often tasty, is not the best option for your health. They do tend to come equipped with higher than average levels of sugar and some added preservatives. In general, I tend to preference steel cut oats. With this said, for some, instant oatmeal is preferable just because of the convenience - and this is difficult to ignore. 

For these tests, I have tried each of the instant oatmeal flavors both in "instant" fashion (just add warm water and stir) and with use of the microwave. They both produce different taste experiences, but ultimately are much shorter cooking times than preparing a 30 minute bowl of oats the old fashioned way.
