That's a lot of loot don't ya think?! Thanks a TON Influenster! (Read my review on Influester here!)

Today I decided to give the oatmeal (check out their website here!) a try! I am a huge oatmeal fan and eat it for breakfast a lot of days out of the week so I was excited to try this product out!

First things first. The packaging. I love the size and quantity of the amount of oatmeal. It's perfect for on the go and it's great that it is a cup instead of a packet that has a lid. Like I said, perfect for the on the go. The colors used are great and I love the pictures of all the fruit and the oatmeal. Makes it very intriguing and I think it grabs the attention of health nuts like myself. Overall great first impression!

Before adding the water,

It has a couple different options of how to make it. Boil water or microwave. I chose to boil the water and then pour it into the cup. There is a line to where the water should stop. Stir, replace the lid and let sit for 3 minutes. Easy as pie - genius for those busy bees!

After adding the boiling water - before stirring.

Ready to eat!

I usually love oatmeal with fruit and think it's a great way to start off your day. I must admit, I was a tad bit disappointed with this product. Maybe I'm super picky, but it wasn't really my style. It's really a great product for a busy lady on the go who can't enjoy a nice breakfast at home. But for me, I prefer fresh fruit with my oatmeal. The fruit was a little too mushy in texture for my taste. Also, some bites were full of flavor, but others were almost tasteless. Like I said, I may be a little too picky, but that is my honest opinion of this product. I love Quaker Oatmeal, and I would love to try the other flavors of these Real Medleys, but the Summer Berry is just not for me :)

Thanks a ton Influenster for sending me this product to try out!

I haven't tried the cereal yet. I'm really picky too, so I have hesitated a bit. Have you used the face mask yet?
