I also shared Brown Sugar Oatmeal Squares with few friends
Smart mamas like the ingredients including the amount of iron in this cereal. They were happy to find out there is only 7 grams of sugar in each serving, but it is still sweet and doesn’t taste like cardboard.
Few of my friends read the list of ingredients several times looking for something they are not happy with. No luck – all the ingredients seem authentic. Group verdict – APPROVED
I make my own for the kids. They normally include
one or two types of cereal, dry fruit (cranberry or raisins are easy to deal with and cheap), plantain chips)Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Crunchy Oatmeal Cereal with a Hint of Brown Sugar, 14.5-Ounce (Pack of 4)
OK, not great.
If Captain Crunch had an affair with Life cereal….
Its not bad, but it doesn’t satisfy
I like to eat these right out of the box
I like to eat these right out of the box, as a snack. They would be perfect if they had fewer carbohydrates.
I recommend them.

A nice and tasty start to the day.
Simple and delicious
A bit too hard
In milk they do last awhile before getting too soggy but then they do not have any flavor unless you put a lot of sugar. I am sorry this does not stand up to the usual good flavors and textures of the Quaker Oats company that I grew up on. I guess I will go back to their oatmeal, you cannot go wrong with that.
Yummy cereal that is good for you!
Also, what I love is that it’s healthy and isn’t loaded with sugar. In fact, if you’re used to really sweet cereals, this may not be for you as while it has some sweetness to it, it isn’t overly sweet.
If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to regular cereal, this is definitely worth a try.
quaker oatmeal squares
Love this cereal!
Quaker equals good
One of my Favorites!
A hint of sugar, but a few too many calories
The ingredient list is as follows: Whole oat flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, maltodextrin, malted barley extract, molasses, salt, calcium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, natural flavor, reduced iron, sodium ascorbate, yellow 5, niacinamide (vitamin B3), BHT (preservative), zinc oxide, vitamin E, acetate, vitamin A palmitate, yellow 6, thiamin mononitrate (vitamin B1), pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamine B6), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and folic acid.
One cup of cereal alone contains 210 calories; with half a cup of skin milk it is 250 calories. In comparison, wheaties contain 133 calories per cup of cereal alone, and Kashi Go Lean contains 140 calories. One cup of cereal also contains 5g of dietary fiber, and 6g of protein.
Overall this is a tasty and healthy cereal, however it has a relatively high calorie count, and there are healthier alternatives available.
And, now, it’s my second favorite cereal. Ok, so it’s didn’t quite bump my “go-to” out of first place, but it came close, and in fact I think it will be my fave for breakfast (but not as much for snacking).
It comes in a rather solid little square, with a great crunch and a good mouth feel, and it super-easy to eat right out of the box. My “Brown sugar” version had a hint of sweetness.
Nutritionally it’s two paws way up, with low fat, high fiber and not a lot of sugar.
So- give it a try.
This cereal also is a heart healthy product and provides more fiber than an average bowl of cereal. Another nice perk is it doesn’t become soggy as soon as the milk hits it. This might be a good way to have kids eat a healthier breakfast cereal. I know that I enjoyed it and would purchase it again.
A Nice Alternative to Spoon Size Shredded Wheat
The taste is pleasant and that, along with the sustained crispiness makes for a nice change from shredded wheat and raisin bran. This one is worth a try.
Tasty and crispy in milk
Great cereal but the price?
Sweet and Crunchy
I liked that this cereal is not too sweet. I tried it as a snack by itself and with milk, and liked it both ways. However, my 4 year old son tried a piece and said he did not like it, I am guessing because it is not as sweet as his usual Honey Comb, Cheerios, and Trix stuff.
Oh well, more for me.
Reinforcing the posiitve we already knew about Quaker
I don’t personally eat a great deal of cereal and am not partial to Quaker’s Life or Capt Crunch brands, but we must complement the company on its Oatmeal Squares product. The squares are rather small and keep a good balance with milk – they do not become soggy in 60 seconds. The brown sugar flavor is adult sensitive sweet and actually retain their flavor. They could be included as a snack or as a light meal other than breakfast. The amount needs to be watched as the calorie count can jump on one if not careful.
It is refreshing to note that the classic companies continue to produce and quietly promote their quality products.
Well done, Quaker Oats

Taste is important!
* 46 grams of whole grains per serving
* The crunchiness holds up in milk
* Makes a great snack
* Low in saturated fat and cholesterol
* Certified by the American Heart Association
* 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein
The cereal fills you up and stays with you, important, if you have busy mornings. Also, it’s not messy, meaning, the squares don’t flake. Moms can easily put some in a baggy for kids to snack on while doing errands.
One of the negative reviews noted that the cereal contains artificial coloring (Yellow 5 and Yellow 6). I too am puzzled why Quaker would want to color the cereal, and that is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I suppose some marketing genius didn’t like the color. But Quaker oatmeal doesn’t have coloring, and people buy plenty of that. I hope that in the future Quaker worries more about how its products taste and less about how they look.
Brown Sugar How Come You Taste So Good?
Oatmeal Squares are tiny boxes of brown sugary-ness, and they are heavy in more weighs than one (Im Punny). They taste very much like Golden Grahams Cereal, 16-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 5) BUT with a earthier, Hay like aftertaste. If that makes sense. about a 1/2 a cup would fill you right on up for the whole morning.
I liked them well enough. Maybe would get them again in the future.
I also love how it is a healthy cereal as well. The box claims it provides 46 grams of whole grains per serving. There is 210 calories a serving, 9 grams of sugar, 0.5 grams of saturated fat, 190 mg of sodium, and 5 grams of fiber (19% daily value). Plus it’s enriched with all those needed vitamins and minerals. Overall, it’s an excellent choice for a healthy breakfast or as a go to snack.
Pretty Good Cereal
I would have given it 5 stars if I could have tasted the brown sugar and if the cereal had been a bit sweeter. As is, I gave it four stars, but I might still buy it if I saw it in the grocery store. It is pretty good, and I can always add a little sugar. And, it is supposed to be healthy too.
