NEWS: Burger King Starts Selling Oatmeal…No, Seriously

Burger King

Update: Click here to read our Burger King Quaker Oatmeal review

BK Chicken Fries are weird, but Burger King’s new oatmeal is weirder.

It’s frickin’ weird because everything on the Burger King menu board is the opposite of oatmeal. Well, except for their garden salad, the apple slices they offer with their kids meals, and the water you can get from the self-serve soda dispenser. But that’s it.

I guess with new ownership comes new ideas to stop being McDonald’s floor mat.

Burger King’s oatmeal isn’t just any ol’ oatmeal, it’s Quaker-brand oatmeal, so you know you’re getting something you could easily make yourself. Their oatmeal comes in Original and Fruit Topped Maple flavors. The fruity version includes dried cranberries, raisins, cherries, and blueberries.

Burger King Oatmeal has a suggested retail price of $1.99. The Original flavor has 110 calories and just one gram of fat, while the Fruit Topped Maple flavor has 270 calories and 4 grams of fat.

However, if you’re looking to get your fiber on with Burger King’s oatmeal, you’ll be able to do so only during breakfast hours, from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. So if you need an oatmeal fix from a major fast food chain after 10:30 a.m., you gotta go to McDonald’s.

  1. I’ve got much love for The King. BK has been the fast food burger choice of my family as far back as I can remember, and I’ve always preferred their flame-grilled taste over whatever it is they got at Mickey D’s. But this kind of “keeping up with the Joneses” crap is downright embarrassing.
    Oatmeal? Really?
