Seneca Oatmeal and Fruit cups, revisited. Plus a giveaway!


Last year I was given the opportunity to review Seneca Oatmeal and Fruit Cups.

I thought that they were a great choice for morning when there is not time for a sit down breakfast, but I did find a few drawbacks.

(Full review here)

I recently had the chance to try the two new flavors, Maple & Brown Sugar and Cranberry Apple.

Both new flavors have a very short ingredient list, which makes the “mom” in me very happy.

We tried the Cranberry Apple first. Just 45 seconds in the microwave and it was the perfect temperature. Peeling back the top, I could smell cranberries! The consistency was  perfect. Not too thin, not too thick. Big cranberries and apples were visible in each spoonful. Love love love this!

Next up is Maple & Brown Sugar. I wanted to like this. I tried to like this. I even added a bit more maple syrup attempting to like this. I just couldn’t. The texture seemed a bit off and while I could smell maple, I didn’t taste any.

Am I an oatmeal snob?

Final verdict for Seneca Oatmeal Cups? LOVE the Cranberry Apple. LOVE. And I can’t wait to find them in stores, because I will be buying them all up. Mine!!! This will live in my pantry right next to the Vanilla Peach from the last taste test. 🙂

Skipping the Maple & Brown Sugar.

Want to give them a taste for yourself? Of course you do!!

One reader will win a 2-pack of each new flavor of Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit!

    Kamy being my vegetarian loves fruit and oatmeal so this sounds like the perfect quick meal combo for her

    My daughter’s favorite breakfast food, in her words, is “fruit.” My son’s is Eo28 Splash elemental formula (he only has 3 foods right now but prefers to only have formula at breakfast time.)

    Lil Man’s favorite breakfast food (well, he eats pretty well 24/7) is french toast. Lil Miss’ is fried eggs (but she won’t eat ’em scrambled HA)

    I shared once more on FB. I don’t know if this counts towards another point or not to share it twice on FB, but I did do it on separate days. I don’t tweet. If it counts, fabulous, if not, I guess my friends at least know more about oatmeal now 😉
