    just have to praise the original porridge, so yummy, couple of sweetners, bit of mixed spice, such a yummy hot meal :D.
    mmm mix-a-mousse later, hope I can get it right first time :bunnydance:

    I love the porridge too....!!! I only eat the porridge and the choc mint shakes!!
    My mum also loves the porridge, she says it reminds her of Farex (baby porridge....which she apparently used to pinch off of us!! lol)

    I have not taken to the porridge at all. I hoped I would. Its not that it is really vile, but its bland and smells odd... off putting.:jelous:

    Shame really.

    lemma 1968, I've learnt not to smell any of the cd stuff before I eat it, don't think any of it smells particularly appealing, so I hadn't noticed that! have you tried spices/adding bits of shakes (eg bit of chocolate shake for choc porridge) x

    I discovered the best thing the other night...sprinkle a pinch of instant coffee into the porridge before you add the water - coffee flavoured porridge! So tasty! xx

    the filling bit is what I love, the warmth and expansion of my stomach! and it reminds me of the microwavable porridges I've had before. I'm not so keen on the apple one, but think that's because it reminds me of the apple air freshner in my car...maybe I should get rid of that and try again :)

    A teaspoon of the toffee and walnut powder added to the porridge after cooking tastes like golden/maple syrup porridge.:)
