    You can add sweetners - but they are very sweet.

    Neither the Original nor the Apple/Cinnamon need any sweeteners, as they're sweet already. A pinch of cinnamon is nice though :).

    I mix mine with a fork, adding 125ml of water from the kettle. Once lumps have gone, microwave for 50 secs. (My m'wave is 950Watts I think.) Make sure the bowl is big enough, as it puffs up in the m'wave. Then when it comes out I add a little cold water whilst stirring with spoon to cool it down a bit and get it to the right consistency. Then sprinkle with a little cinnamon and enjoy :D.

    I had the porridge on my 3rd day i think it was, hated it. Found it incredibly salty, the texture was lovely but just couldnt get past the salt which was a shame. To each their own I guess hehe

    I love the porridge! I have about 200ml of hot water, then I microwave it for 2 mins, continuously stopping and stirring otherwise it explodes.. then I leave it for about 5 mins before I eat it so it hardens up a bit!

    Porridge

    The first porridge I had I did add a tablet sweetner and it was that bad I had to throw it away
    (it would be better with powder sweetner - but not allowed on sole source)

    I have a sweet tooth and both porridge flavours are fab enough without adding anything but the water - Enjoy

    I couldn't have done this without the porridge. I love it. I add plenty of water and make it more of a paste, yummy !
