Oatmeal, Porridge....America's Favorite Pantry Staple

I'm a porridge fan.  Like a huge porridge fan, but I'm also kind of a snob in a way, it has to be a specific brand or I won't touch it.

It's weird because I'm not like that with many food products, but porridge....and oatmeal.

 Irish oats – for oatmeal, cookies, as a crust for fish, and much more

I was lucky enough to be asked if I would interested in trying out some samples from the Irish Food Board.....which so happen to be my favorite porridge and oatmeal brands.  Ummm YEAH, of course I'll try.

Shortly after I received in the mail a package with some amazing products that I really could not wait to try.

Kilbeggan Creamy Porridge
Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal
John McCann's Irish Oatmeal


The very next morning, I was up bright and early as usual, and fixed myself and hubby a big bowl of creamy porridge.




My word, so good.

Usually to make the porridge edible for me, I have to add tons of sugar and cinnamon and all sorts of toppings, but for this one, I went with just a drizzle of honey and it was the creamiest tastiest porridge I had ever tasted.


I'm familiar with the John McCann's oatmeal, it's one of my favorites, but it was my first time trying the Kilbeggan.  It's now top of the list for me.

My daughter loves oatmeal too and her favorite is the Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal.

Ireland produces arguably the highest quality, best-tasting oats in the world. Did you know that there are several high-quality brands of Irish oats available in the US? It’s true – McCann’s, Flahavan’s, Macroom and Kilbeggan!

Of course you can go on over to the individual sites and learn more about these oats:

So tell me, are you an oatmeal or porridge fan???  Have you ever tried either John McCann's, Flahavan's or Kilbeggan???

Thank you to to the Irish Food Board (Bord Bia) for providing me with samples for the review.  All opinions are mine alone.
