Lean Cuisine Morning Collection Wild Blueberry & Pomegranate Oatmeal

Purchased Price: $3.49
Size: 2 pack
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 3 out of 10
Pros: Filling. Great…if you’re desperate. Makes a decent hand warmer. Warms my innards. Low fat. Contains ingredients I can easily pronounce.
Cons: Provides just 2 grams of fiber (competing products offer 5 grams and fast food oatmeal offers at least 5 grams). Blueberry flavor is too mild. Pomegranate flavor is non-existent. End result after following microwaving instructions looks like I melted Grimace. Not a very good way to start one’s morning.

    UGH! That looks nasty! Why they couldn’t have done pomegranate flavored oatmeal then blueberries on the side.

  2. Sofia says:

    I splurged and bought this oatmeal a month ago. The first bowl around I had a similarly gloopy experience.


    With the second bowl, I refrigerated it after microwaving, and lo and behold, the purple slop congealed into a very tasty, pudding-esque treat that made me regret throwing out the first batch.

    Assuming it was on sale, I would definitely contemplate getting this again.

    I just throw a handful of frozen blueberries with a regular microwave oatmeal packet and milk. Takes like 90 sec, and I bet it’s cheaper.

      I bet it’s cheaper still to just measure out oats from a canister, and microwave those. Quick Oats take slightly less time than “Old-Fashioned” but both styles work, and I mean… the point is, it’s doable and it’s fast.

      I like the frozen blueberries idea, though. You could probably also add pomegranate juice to taste, if you felt like it.

      Pre-prepared microwave oatmeal is just pointless. And, apparently, not very good.

    Gawd, the picture looks like you ate the oatmeal and then barfed it back in the bowl.

    Have to second the barf comment… Nasty!
