"Quaker Products"

Mmmm. Where to begin, where to begin.

When the folks at Quaker asked me if I’d like to try out some of their products, I said, “Sure, why not?” After all, with my multitude of health issues, my diet is pretty limited…and I tend to eat things that are more on the grain-y side, like bagels and oatmeal and granola bars. So, this seemed like it would be right up my alley.

I love the Soft Baked Banana Nut Bread Bars, which are made with real bananas and realĀ almonds. Each bar provides 5 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and 20% of your daily value of five B vitamins!

"Quaker Yogurt Granola Bars"

I could eat the Quaker Yogurt Flavored Granola Bars all. day. long. OMG. These things are de-lish. They are made with real blueberries and have 12 grams of whole grains. (They also come in Strawberry and Vanilla.) Guess who’s stocking up on these babies? This gal.

I also am digging the Stila Strawberry Crispy Oat Cookie Bars. They are definitely different but taste great and have a nice crunch, which I crave on occasion. The Stila Bars are made with real fruit filling (they’re also available in Apples & Cinnamon and Blueberry) and whole grain oats. Each bar has a mere 100 calories and no trans fats. Yippee!

"Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Raisin Cookies"

We both loved — and I mean love loved — the Soft Baked Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Now, this is saying something because I really dislike raisins. As soon as we opened this box, we each devoured tried one, then we helped ourselves to a second cookie. These cookies are fantastic! The cookies are individually packaged, which makes them nice and neat for lunches or travel. They’re made with whole grain Quaker Oats and provide a good source of fiber.

W and I both liked the Chocolate Chip Instant Oatmeal. To be fair, we go through instant oatmeal in this house like crazy, so we’re already a little biased. But oatmeal with chocolate chips — not too many but not too few, mind you — is a whole new experience. Each packet has only 130 calories and 8 grams of sugars, and contains “heart healthy” whole grains. Yay!

"Quaker Oatmeal Squares Cereal"

Unfortunately, I can’t attest to the Quaker Honey Nut Oatmeal Squares, because I never got to try them. W finished off that box in two sittings. Two. But I’ll tell you about them anyway. I believe they were delicious, as most rational people do not suck down an entire box of cereal that they dislike. But that’s just an assumption. They also are a good source of fiber and calcium and containĀ 96% of your minimum daily whole grain recommendation. Sounds like a real winner, all the way around. Oh, did I mention that this cereal can help lower cholesterol? Yeppers.

All in all, we are in love with these Quaker products. Just one problem: We’re running out of everything and have to re-stock our cabinets. Oh well.

Guess what? Quaker has a box of these amazing products for one of my readers as well! Sweet!! This giveaway is open to U.S. residents and ends August 26 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Enter via the Rafflecopter form below:

    Hi
    I can remember when Quaker only did,porridge oats. Now they do,a whole range which I think is great because you know you are getting I high quality product and not just some cheaply made product that is bulked up with all sorts of rubbish nutritionally just to make them either taste nice or seem substantial.

    Love them thanks lee
