McCann's Instant Sugar Free Irish Oatmeal (Maple and Brown Sugar) Review

McCann Instant Sugar Free Irish Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of my favorite foods. It can make a delicious snack as well as a satisfying meal, and it provides a good dose of fiber and protein with relatively little fat and calories. Although I normally eat my oatmeal plain with a little bit of salt (strange, yes, but delicious), I was looking to try something new and different when McCann's Instant Sugar Free Irish Oatmeal in Maple and Brown Sugar caught my eye. Most flavored oatmeal is loaded with sugar, so the fact that this product is sugar free was very appealing. Still, I found it odd that a "sugar free" cereal came in a "Maple & Brown Sugar" flavor?!

I emptied the packet into a bowl and added water, microwaving for about a minute and a half. The serving size was not huge, but it was big enough to be a good snack. I was a little bit disappointed by the taste - it had somewhat of an overly sweet, artificial sugar flavor, with strong maple taste that took a little while to get used to. After a few bites, I decided I liked it, but it certainly wasn't love at first bite (pardon the pun).

I flipped over the box to read the nutrition stats: 100 calories, 2 grams of total fat (no saturated or trans fat), 140 mg of sodium (6% of the RDA), 4 grams of protein and 18 grams of carbohydrates which includes 3 grams of fiber (12% of the RDA). In addition, each serving provides 20% of the RDA for many minerals, including calcium, iron, and vitamin A.

I purchased a box with 8 (1 ounce) servings for $3.99. I might buy this again to use in conjunction with my normal, regular oatmeal, but it definitely won't replace it.
