Just as I was ready to try the new oatmeal at McDonald's, a friend stumbled upon this article from the New York Times.
When an oatmeal is described as containing: “oats, sugar, sweetened dried fruit, cream and 11 weird ingredients you would never keep in your kitchen," that's enough to make me run for the hills.
I'll stick with my self-proclaimed "boring" maple syrup and brown syrup Quaker instant oatmeal instead.
And I recommend you stick with Quaker too. Well, it doesn't have to be Quaker (I'm a fan of the generic store brand too), but you get me.
The item I will back McDonald's up on every time? The McFlurry. And no, I will never read the ingredients involved or the caloric intake on that masterpiece. I like it just that much.
