McCann's Sugar Free Instant Oatmeal (Cinnamon Roll) Review

McCann Instant Sugar Free Irish Oatmeal

I tried McCann's Sugar Free Instant Oatmeal in Maple and Brown Sugar previously and wasn't extremely pleased with it, but when McCann's oatmeal went on sale on Amazon.com for 40% off, I knew I had to try another flavor. I picked up a 6-pack of 8-count boxes of McCann's Sugar Free Instant Oatmeal Cinnamon Roll for $17.39 (and free shipping). At just under 37 cents a package, this was a steal.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 packet
Calories: 100
Total Fat: 2 grams, 3%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 140 mg, 6%
Carbohydrates: 18 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugars: 0 grams
Protein: 4 grams

I heated up a bowl with one package, and again was struck with how small a serving seemed. Still, it smelled really good and I definitely liked this better than the Maple and Brown Sugar flavor - it wasn't as artificial, and it was sweet without being too much so. It didn't taste particularly cinnamon-y (at least not the way I sometimes make my oatmeal, with lots of cinnamon and a little Splenda), but the taste was pretty good nonetheless.

McCann's Sugar Free Instant Oatmeal Cinnamon Roll has exactly the same nutritional information as the Maple and Brown Sugar variety: 100 calories, 2 grams of total fat, 6% of the daily value for sodium, 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. In addition, each serving provides 20% of the RDA for many vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, and vitamin A. The artificial sweeteners used are sucralose and acesulfame K.

I have enough to last me a long time and I'm quite thrilled about that. If this had more cinnamon flavor it would be perfect - but I can always add more myself.
