New Year, New Oats!

Written by admin on January 25th, 2012

Working at Country Choice Organic has its perks. For one, taking my work home with me means bringing cookies and oatmeal home to my family. When your work is this tasty and wholesome, it’s hard not to!

As you would imagine, we have quite a few oat fanatics around our office. We love our steel cut, rolled, multi-grain… not to mention our Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies. In fact, we spend a lot of our working hours perfecting new and delicious ways to deliver our organic oats to you. Most recently, we introduced several new products: Quick Cook Steel Cut Oat Pouches, Apple Cinnamon Multigrain Instant Oatmeal and Maple Spice Multigrain Instant Oatmeal. You should see them soon where you buy organic products.

However, we know we aren’t the only ones with “outside the canister” ideas for enjoying Country Choice Organic oats!

So now it’s your turn to get creative! We’d love to hear the delicious ways you make eating organic easy. How do you incorporate organic oats into recipes enjoyed by you and your family? Enter the Outside the Canister Recipe Contest before February 8, 2012, and let us know what you are whipping up in your kitchen. You could win a one-year supply of Country Choice organic products. What better way to start the year?

  2. As a long-time user of McCann’s steel cut oats (quick version), I had that on Subscribe & Save here in order to get the best price. I did not like the price rising, so gave Country Choice Organic Quick a try. I may never go back. I don’t find Country Choice better than McCann’s, but it is different, very good in its own way, and has a more pleasing price. I’d read reviews here about the container being inferior, so I saved one of my McCann’s containers to transfer the product – but now I see no reason to do that. This paperboard-type container is just fine, a bit floppy, but it works. I also read a review that Country Choice is good if you like to chew not-so-soft oatmeal, and that could not be further from my experience. The standout difference between McCann’s and Country Choice is that the latter is much softer, almost fluffy, and I cook them the same way. My proportions are a cup (generous, sometimes I go a bit over) of water to 1/3 cup oats (also a hair generous at times), and I cook the oats for 7 minutes. Surprisingly enough, if I had to choose which of the two brands is better for clean digestion (euphemism – lol), it would be Country Choice. I say it’s surprising because one would think that a rougher oatmeal would do a better cleaning job. Boy oh boy, my days have been going great, because I have a good start in the morning!

  3. These oats are a staple for breakfast at my house. I completely agree with the other reviews and wanted to add one small detail regarding cooking the oats. These are not instant oats. They take some time to prepare so don’t expect a quick breakfast with this product. The benefit to cooking the oats for 30 minutes is that the long cooking time actually expands the oats to approximately four times their volume. One cup of oats expands to four servings of hot delicious ready-for-brown sugar and cinnamon goodness!! Also, these oats are by far the best deal when you take a look at the serving size and cost per ounce.
