    I honestly thought it was really nice!! I could have it for breakfast even though I don't need to anymore!!

    I did try sweetening it with a disolved splenda which made it nicer for me.

    I would give it 9 out of 10 though for a sole source product!

    Ive not had the husks but the porridge for me wasnt good. It HAS to be made in the mirowave which im not a fan of, didnt mix too well, you hardly get any ( and im far from greedy) was sweet but not in a good way

    LOL well thats what i felt, each to their own like, You just need to try it and its the case of marmite, love it or hate it!

    I think its fantastic. Those interested should give it a go and see what they think. There are bound to be people who can't stand it in the same way as I can't stand the chocolate mint or the veg soup.

    The porridge is an amazing choice for SS. In 17 years I didn't think I'd see anything like that.

    Oh I hope I like it, I will be buying for a month when I see my CDC on the 11th, so I won't get a chance to taste before.

    I do seem to like bland food so hoping it will be okay.

    I don't have a microwave, but gave it a go making it up with hot water and then putting it on the hob and simmering gently until it started to boil.

    I thought it came out rather well considering it wasn't supposed to be made that way - although I think using only 140 mls of water wasn't enough as it seemed rather too thick. Next time I'll add a little more water, but I did enjoy it (and I'm not a great lover of porridge at the best of times :))

    By doing it in this slow manner on the hob my counsellor said not to, something to do with the release of the vitamins in the porridge and not killing them off so to speak b4 eating them.

    I thought it was more like oats so simple, the sweet plain one. But I haven't had that in a long while, so maybe my memory is a bit out!
