    I hated the porridge- tried both and I just can't swollow it. I guess everyone has their own taste.

    Oh I love the porridge as well!! I love love the original but the apple and cinnamon is also nice. I have a pack everyday for breakfast but lately I've been having them for dinner and loving it! I'm going off the chocolate packs now so I think I'll swap them for more porridge! :D

    I had porridge for my first meal on CD and it was revolting - but since then I have tried blending it and it is much better, in fact this morning's one was actually, dare I say it, quite nice...

    I have porridge every night, I prefer it whisked with a fork then blended though. I add sweetener and then when cooked I sprinkle some cinnamon. Yum!!! I have had it every night for five weeks.

    I also love the porridge (but have only tried the apple & cinnamon, couldn't be bothered to sweeten the plain one). I don't blend mine because I quite like chewing on the lumps, lol. I will try blending it though, just to see what it's like.

    I find you have to careful when microwaving it - if you don't use a deep enough dish, it tends to slurp over the sides (and gets wasted! I can't be doing with that!).

    I was late for work this morning and didn't have time for my porridge so took it with me. All I was able to do was to put it in a bowl and pour on some (unmeasured) hot water and mix it up with a spoon. But it was even nice then! :) Yummy!

    Am I missing something??? Are we supposed to cook our porridge? I was under the impression that we couldn't cook any of the packs because it destroys the vitamins and nutrients in them.... I've been making my porridge by mixiing with hot water from the tap (but not boiling) and mixing well. It comes out slightly thick like a smoothie but not pasty like normal porridge. I love it all the same but would like to know if we can cook it. Thanks peeps!
