Yes we are expanding our food choices here for you! Another of our new additions to the lineup is Umpqua Oats. This is clearly the best nearly instant oatmeal that I've ever had. I'm not a fan of mushy, flavorless oatmeal. This stuff includes the whole oat grain, which makes it "al dente" - not mushy. And the flavors are great - and not too sweet. Currently we have: Salted Caramel, Not Guilty (Blueberries, apples, flax, chia and no added salt or sugar), R U Nuts (Walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds and flax), Mostly Sunny (Apples, cranberries and raisins - This one is nut free), and Kickstart (Blueberries, cranberries, sunflower seeds and more). They're all great for breakfast but I've been getting into the habit of eating one in the afternoon for a guilt-free, tasty snack to tide me over until dinnertime. You can get them with or without hot water, if you want to take one to make yourself later. "Umpqua" is a Native American word originally meaning "satisfied stomach," and yes, these oats do live up to their name!
