Don’t like it

This oatmeal is not good. Its mushy, soft, I don’t like it. Quaker Oats is the way to go.

Mushy

The flavors are good. However, I do not see any differce between this and Oaker Oats brand – they are both mushy.
WillieCisco, IL

Very good but next time I won’t order the Variety Pack

I really like the Maple and Brown Sugar flavor. The regular is fine with brown sugar added. The Apples and Cinnamon flavor is OK. This is a very quick, easy and satisfying breakfast and I’ll order this brand again, but not the variety. I’ll get all Maple and Brown Sugar.

Same stuff

This is the same stuff you can buy at the big box stores. There is nothing healthy about it. It is just carbs and sugars. Save your money and get something that at least has some taste.

Best of the Instant Oatmeals

McCann’s Instant Oatmeal is great if you must have your oatmeal but can only scrape together two or three minutes to prepare it. There is no escaping the fact, however, that even the best instant oatmeal is nowhere near as good as even a store brand of oatmeal requiring stovetop preparation. Still, the McCann’s is as good as it gets for instant oatmeal. It’s even better than the organic, all-natural brands I have tried. All the varieties in the McCann’s variety pack taste good. It can be prepared in the microwave or by adding boiling water so it is convenient in the extreme when time is an issue.

McCann’s use of actual cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup helped me decide to buy this product. Real sugar tastes better and is not as harmful as the other stuff. One thing I do not like, though, is McCann’s use of thickeners. Oats plus water plus heat should make a creamy, tasty oatmeal without the need for guar gum. But this is a convenience product. Maybe the guar gum is why, after sitting in the bowl a while, the instant McCann’s becomes too thick and gluey.

Good Instant

This is a good instant oatmeal from the best oatmeal brand. It uses cane sugar instead of high fructouse corn syrup, so not only does it have a better sweetness, but some doctors now say that this form of sugar is better for you. Great on a cold morning when you don’t have time to make McCann’s Steel Cut Oats. The apple cinnamon is the best but the maple and brown sugar or the regular are good too. Plus they don’t require doctoring to actually tell the three flavors apart.

Great Irish oatmeal for those in a hurry!

Instant oatmeal can become soggy the minute the water hits the bowl. McCann’s Instant Oatmeal holds its texture, has excellent flavor, and is good for you all at the same time. McCann’s regular oat meal is excellent, too, but may take a bit longer to prepare than most have time for in the morning. This is the best instant brand I’ve ever eaten, and a very close second to the non-instant variety.

I’m a fan of the McCann’s steel-cut oats, so I thought I’d give the instant variety a try. I found it to be a hardy meal, not too sweet, and great for folks like me (post-bariatric surgery) who need food that is palatable, easily digestible, with fiber but won’t make you bloat.

Love Gluten Free Oatmeal!!!

For those of us with celiac disease this product is a lifesaver and what could be better than getting it at almost half the price of the grocery or health food store! I love McCann’s instant oatmeal – all flavors!!!

Thanks,

it’s oatmeal

What else do you need to know? Oatmeal, instant (make it with a half cup of low-fat milk and add raisins;nuke for 90 seconds). More expensive than Kroger store brand oatmeal and maybe a little tastier or better texture or something. It’s still just oatmeal. Mmm, convenient!

GOOD WAY TO START THE DAY….

I WAS VISITING MY FRIEND NATE THE OTHER MORNING FOR COFFEE , HE CAME OUT OF HIS STORAGE ROOM WITH ( A PACKET OF McCANNS INSTANT IRISH OATMEAL .) HE SUGGESTED THAT I TRY IT FOR MY OWN USE ,IN MY STASH . SOMETIMES NATE DOSE NOT GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO SAY NO , SO I ENDED UP TRYING THE APPLE AND CINN . FOUND IT TO BE VERY TASTEFULL WHEN MADE WITH WATER OR POWDERED MILK . IT GOES GOOD WITH O.J. AND COFFEE AND A SLICE OF TOAST AND YOUR READY TO TAKE ON THE WORLD…OR THE DAY AT LEAST.. JERRY REITH…

Why wouldn’t you buy oatmeal from Mcanns? Tastes great!

The variety packs taste great!

I have them every morning. At $0.30 cents per meal, I don’t understand why everyone on earth isn’t buying this stuff up.

Maple and brown sugar is terrific, followed by apples and cinnamon, followed by regular. You don’t get tired of the same ole thing, and they taste great.

I just boil water from a small pot, empty the packet or 2 in a bowl, pour in boiling water, and watch it expand to 2x its size!

Taste really good and takes minutes to prepare.

Not sure why everyone on earth isn’t this. Convenient, healthy, very quick, excellent quality, and extremely cheap…

Oatmeal For Oatmeal Lovers

McCann’s makes oatmeal for every oatmeal connoisseur, whether one likes it from the raw pellet state that cooks for half an hour, to the sloth addled instant, which can be done in the microwave for under three minutes. It’s all good, that’s for sure, and the beauty of the instant variety is that it is available in different flavors as well as regular.
This variety pack allows different tastes to be explored, as well as giving you a chance to experience the difference between McCann’s and other well-known oatmeals. What I personally like about McCann’s is that it cooks up thicker and with more body than the top brand here in America. The Apples & Cinnamon, though, tends to be a little liquidy so you may want to experiment with the amount of water you add. In my 1300watt microwave the oatmeal cooks up in about one minute and twenty-seven seconds, so you should also watch that to get a handle on how much time and water to use.
The only bad thing — if you can consider it a bad thing — about this offering is that you have to buy in lot so you’ll end up with six ten-count boxes. This is good if you have a whole family of oatmeal-eaters, but if you’re a single person alone — well, love oatmeal.

Food-Great

I have McCann’s Oatmeal every morning and by ordering it from Amazon I am able to save almost $3.00 per box.
It is a great product. Tastes great and very healthy

Good Hot Breakfast

McCann’s Oatmeal is a good quality choice. Our favorite is the Apples and Cinnamon, but we find that none of these are overly sugary. For a good hot breakfast in 2 minutes, this is excellent.
AlyssaCampton, NH

Great taste and convenience

We really like the McCann’s steel cut oats but find we don’t cook it up too often.
This tastes much better to me than the grocery store brands and is just as convenient.
Anything that keeps me eating oatmeal regularly is a good thing.

Hearty Oatmeal

This seems a little more wholesome than some of the supermarket brands, but it is somewhat mushy and doesn’t have quite as much flavor either. It didn’t pass muster with my kids, so I probably won’t buy it again.
NoemiConway, MA

good

Good oatmeal. I like the apple cinnamon the best. Though I wouldn’t follow the directions on the package since it always comes out too soupy for my taste. That could just be me since I like my oatmeal really thick to add some milk on top of.
