I like the apple and cinnamon porridge, it sets me up for the day, has texture with the apple pieces and the skin is the best bit. Tasty and satisfying.Report this review
Some reviewers have stated that this Apple& Cinnamon porridge is too sweet and sickly but I disagree. What I have found sickly is the Golden Syrup one but this one has just the right amount of sweetness. I followed the instructions but was unable to get the right consistency. Despite having a 900w microwave, the 2 minutes in total still resulted in watery porridge so I heated on full power for a further 30 seconds and it turned out better, although nothing like the picture on the website. Overall, a lovely taste and would try again.

Not one of my best purchases. Far too sweet and hardly any oats in it. Also kept boiling over even after following the instructions. Wont be buying again.Report this review
This porridge is ok not like normal porridge but edible. You need to make sure you stir well and add the water but by bitReport this review
What I don't understand about this porridge is why it's been put made to produce something with the texture of sloppy baby food in stead of the texture of porridge. It has whole rolled oats in it, but presumably they've been blitzed and when added to the oat bran and oat flour it's just a packet of 'dusty stuff'. With the recommended amount of water it's very sloppy so if you like things a bit firmer I'd suggest using slightly less water than directed. My biggest issue with this product was how sweet it was - it's over-poweringly sweet, so much so that I really couldn't eat more than a couple of spoons. A fair number of the non-VLCD porridge pots come in at the same (or slightly less) calorific value and have more texture which makes the only USP of this product the added vitamins and minerals...honestly I'd rather go for a plain Oats So Simple at 180 calories and pop a multi-vitamin pill!Report this review
Really good ! You can taste the apple and the cinnamon!Report this review
Not usually a fan of porridge but wow! This is really nice and creamy.Report this review
This Apple and Cinnamon Porridge is delicious, I make mine in a pan on the hob to get the consistency I prefer. You can also make Porridge cookies using less water and baking them, which is a nice change.Report this review
Looks nothing like the pictures and the preparation instructions need a rethink (I'd suggest 100ml of water and cook for longer in the microwave to make it marginally thicker) for some reason this is now supplied in sachets rather than the previous pots which were far more convenient, I think the recipe has also changed - I won't be buying this gloopy mess again! Very disappointed.Report this review
