This is the last of the Quaker Oatmeal Squares reviews. How does Honey Nut fare?
Well, honestly, it’s a very nice breakfast cereal. As I’ve really rather enjoyed the texture and base flavour of the product in the other two flavours I’ve tried, that doesn’t surprise me.
However, I won’t be buying it again. Not because it’s bad (it isn’t – please see previous “very nice” comment), it’s just boring and not as good as the others.
If I’m going to rank them in order of preference…
- Brown Sugar
- Honey Nut
Nothing that comes in at third place gets a repeat purchase. Unless we’re talking Mulino Bianco cookies, in which case most of them are fair game.
The review then. Eating these dry and there’s a light honey sweetness and a vaguely nut-like flavour. It’s not strong or defined, but a generic sort of thing. It’s pretty “blah”, if I’m going to use a noise instead of a word to describe the experience.
Under milk I don’t think the nut makes as much of an appearance. I mostly get honey. Of course the background wholegrain wheaty sort of taste hits all the right spots for me.
This particular flavour would have been much better with some actual nut bits somewhere in the product. As it is, the ingredients list suggests why I’d found these lacklustre overall. I can’t spot any nuts – can you?
Overall, texture and base flavour are great. The ‘Nut’ part of ‘Honey Nut’ is a bit of a disappointment. Nevermind though, there’s still Cinnamon or Brown Sugar to go at!
