Cold. Expensive way of buying oats.

snap. Just bought some. Cook yours on my HEAT.

why the big bowl?
way too much

I buy a 1kg bag for 70p-£1 depending on where I buy it. I like about 40g, which I put into a bowl. I pour on boiling water and add some salt, give it a quick stir and leave it for 10-15 minutes. On return, it's ready to eat. No cooking as such, no boiling over etc., just nice Scottish-style salted porage costing about 3-4p per portion in oats. 10p for a portion like this? Too expensive (though I concede it's handy, and still a cheap and nutritious foodstuff.) But the golden syrup version...... sugar in porage? Och no no no laddie.

That must taste and look like wallpaper paste.

Agreed!!

Great deal heat added!

10p per sachet is expensive? Get real people unless you want it for free. £2.20 from Costa/Eat/Starbucks is expensive.

It's not expensive, but it's not a deal either when you can buy a 1kg box which works out much cheaper per portion.

If you want to take it to work, a resealable (and reusable) food bag would do.

Quaker is 1.98 per kg and this works out at 2.68 per kg so it's actually not so much cheaper if you've food bags to buy too !

Quaker is 1.98 a kg this is 2.68 a kg so take out the cost of food bags around 30 if you buy the cheap ones. This deals actually only 40p dearer. So in some peoples opinion that's not a bad deal

I never buy it @ £1.98 p kg, wait until it's on offer and stockpile

I accept it might be a good deal for some, but 10p a portion is almost double what it costs me, so cold porridge for me!

Bought these the other day, they are nice but didn't notice it was 'big bowl' so it is a bit too much for me. Good deal though

Some of you seem to be missing the point, we all know there are cheaper porridge oats out there but if this is what you usually buy, then it is a good deal.

these are special oats, they're more finely ground to cook quicker.

Yeah I know, it's dust. Cheap dust left over from the manufacture of real oats lol. Hilarious.

Nonetheless it is a handy way to do it, if that's your thing. Hot from me.

Agreed!!




If you exchange the oats bit with noodles then it could work...

Think I've noticed the difference between the oats so simple and normal Quaker oats as you say. Oats so simple cook quicker in the microwave, probably because they are finer oats. I bought the 1kg box as it was cheaper but now wish I had stuck with oats so simple.

I'd never buy this type of "porridge". Just a waste of money and too much added sugar!

I wasn't aware this was a nutritional site ?? Surely it's for others to decide what they eat. It's does make you wonder why bother sharing with comments like this.

Add some natural honey for added sweetness without adding sugar.

I just bought 2 boxes from tesco for £4! I hate not living near an Asda.

Too many irrelevant opinions on this deal. Good price and heated.

recently got the 18 sachet boxes from tesco for 1.49

syrup flavour is rank

Agreed. (and heated)

Depends how much time people have on their hands to individually portion breakfast for convenience...

honey is sugar....

pretty much equivalent to golden syrup as far as I can see.

Not that I'm against it, like the whole world is against sugar right now. Try cutting all sugars from your diet and see how fast you die!

You have no idea how much I learned from this site. I had no idea that some cheap biscuits contain trans-fats for example, while the better ones don't. That could literally be life and death. Don't knock it!

I like to do the same but put it all in a food thermos. Keeps it warm and lets you cook it for slightly longer. Although I don't like to add sugar/syrup.. I do like to add raisins, is that heresy?

Agree, picked up some much info and tips from here, mind you there are a lot of inane comments. My current bane is the why people have to say Thanks, whenever a deal is posted and appreciated, giving them heat is enough. Reason of the bane, I have to go through them before you come across the interesting comments.

How is this the deal of the day so far!?

Because so far there haven't been any better ones?

Seems like a decent deal to me. And they are convenient. Personally, I just buy a big bag. I don't even cook it, just soak it in milk in the fridge overnight, perfect next morning.

well, every day they send out a newsletter and the one with the highest temperature gets to be deal of the day.
The temperature is defined as the number of positive votes minus the number of negative votes.
Some people seem to have special magic votes that are worth more than 1, mine for example is worth 5.



Just a note, particularly to the girls. 1 in 10 women have a nickel allergy (usually expressed by a rash if you try to wear cheap metal jewellery or watches etc). Oats are full of Nickel, so if you've got some form of dermatitis, ezcema, and you eat oats every day, stop now!

Personally I'm not convinced all these carbohydrate rich grains are so good for us. After all, we've been advised to eat them for years and everyone's getting fatter, not healthier.

Can't be arsed measuring out portions from a big bag, so these sachets are really handy for work. Big bowl ones, though a great price, would be too much for me. I tend to by the Oats So Simple in Caramel or Honey and Vanilla when they're on offer

Why are people comparing these to bags of ordinary oats? They are not the same thing. HUKD is about letting others know where to get something for a good price, in this case Oats-so-Simple...and this is a good price. I think most people are smart enough to know that you can buy a big bag of standard oats for less per kilo. The heat this deal is getting rather says it all. Thanks OP, and have a few degrees more.

Sainsbury's have packs of 18 of the standard Oats-so-Simple packs for £1.50 if Big-Bowl is just too much for you.

why are you numpties comparing this microwavable porridge sacheta to a big box of rolled oats? its not the same fecking thing.

the normalish price for these is about £2.50 so yes a £1 is a good deal
