INSTANT BANANA OATMEAL

Does anyone eat instant banana oatmeal? We buy the boxes of instant fruit oatmeal. The box contains peach, strawberry, blueberry and banana packets. We don't like the banana but you can't just buy the others. We would buy all peach or all strawberry if we could. Wait, do I hear you say that Quaker sells boxes of single flavors? Oh yes, I know that. But, Great Value does not. We buy the cheaper brands and that leaves us with packets and packets of left over banana oatmeal. We can't even convince the grandchildren to eat it.

Shouldn't I be able to calculate the cost of the banana oatmeal packets that go to waste and compare that to our savings on not buying the name brand oatmeal and thus justify buying Quaker oatmeal? One day I'm going to open the cabinet door and be killed in an avalanche of -- you guessed it -- instant banana oatmeal flakes.

  1. I do! My fav is an all natural variety made by a company called BearNaked! It's really delicious. I make mine in the nuker using apple cider or apple juice for extra flavor and healthy stuff. And yeah, I first bought it cause I though the name was funny! lol

  5. About leftover oatmeal and leftover medicine. A local nursing home may take both. I know our local soup kitchen would take the oatmeal.

    Thanks for visiting my site and commenting.
