    I got my oats yesterday and was so looking forward to them but they are soooooooo awful tasting I cant even get a spoonful down :( FYI these are the American version Food For Life oats.
    Any idea on how i can seriously kill the awful taste??
    i just bought two big containers. Big mistake :(

    Maybe a touch of cinnamon? I'm not fond of the apple and cinnamon one we get in the UK, the apple bits are rubbery and foul so I stick to the plain porridge and put some spices in. Hope it helps

    a sweetner tablet and a teaspoon of another shake added in as flavouring, that way when you have the rest of the shake later on its just minus a teaspoon?

    I couldn't stomach the porridge either. I physically couldn't convince myself to swallow it - it made me gag and heave! Nothing I did made it any better. I've decided to stick to the shakes and bars now - gone off the soup too!

    I actually enjoyed my porridge this morning (plain one) and I think it is because I blended it!!! ha ha - it is not nice without blending it! lol!!

    I also love the mushroom soup, banana and capp shakes!!

    oh I am working myself up to try the apple and cin porridge again - this was my first intro into the diet and I did gag! But maybe it will be better with blending! ha ha! I am a bit of a plonker sometimes!
