Quaker Oats Real Medleys Review

So I told ya'll I wouldn't be eating that sample treat and I didn't cause me and oatmeal not so much.  Unless it's oatmeal cookies and then it's on and popping.  Well mom ate the goodies this afternoon and she was so thrilled with the taste she knocked on my door and asked if I had another one she could eat right now.  Of course I didn't because I only had that one because it was a sample in the Holiday Vox Box from Influenster.  BUT we had to make a run to the store and I went searching them out for her in case she forgot to get them and that's when I saw what COULD be a draw back for some people buying any in the future.  We went to Wal-mart and they had the Medleys for sale as individual packs.  Which wouldn't have been such a big deal except they were 1.58 a piece.  As much as she had been salivating at the house, it quickly turned into a "oh freaky Friday" situation for mom.  Oh and freaky Friday seems to be code for well ain't that a blip.  Her cheap killed picking up any for herself but I grabbed another of the flavor we were sent (Cherry Pistachio) for her just to be nice.  She said it was super flavorful and loved the nuts and fruits mixed in together.  So if you can get them cheaper or find a coupon dive in from mom's point of view.

ETA: That 1.58 appears to be a bargain based on what I saw on Amazon when 12 packs are going for 2 bucks and some change.  If I can get a coupon to print then it will only be a buck a container but I can still see my mom going hmmm baby I don't know about that one.


  1. LOL! I've recently started eating porridge for breakfast, something I've never done before. I was surprised at how quickly I went from "Meh, kind of gluggy" to "Hmm, I'm looking forward to that gluggy stuff!".

    1. Oh I just can't. It just gives me a blah yuck texture taste and then makes me sad. But thankfully mom loves it all so I can always donate things like that to her. She's like a finicky Mikey from all those old Life cereals commercials. She'll try anything but if she doesn't really like it you'll never hear about it. If she does though she repeats herself about 30K times about how good it was.
