Are you looking for ready-to-eat oatmeal cookies? Check out my review for Quaker Oatmeal Cookies.
I’m a proud member of the 90s babies club because I believe childhood in our era was well-spent. Mataya-taya, patintero, tumbang preso, Tom Sawyer are among the street games I and my buddies enjoyed. Moreover, Pritos Ring, Kobe, Rinbee, Ricoa Flat Tops, and Ice Gems are among the kiddie chip thrills we enjoyed.
Oatmeals are an essential part of people’s lives, especially the children of the 90s. Quaker Oats, specifically, is one of the breakfast deals the babies of the 90s would die for. Nothing beats creamy oats with hot chocolate to boost a 90 kiddo’s day.
As years go by, this grainy goodness also evolved in so many ways. It’s now being used for making appetizers, mains, and desserts.
The Quaker Oatmeal Cookies
Since it’s high in fiber for better digestion, health buffs love to add oatmeals to cookies. Thus, making evil goodness less evil. Well, for me, oatmeal cookies are fantastic because they have these tiny bits that add a chewing experience.
In one grocery trip, I stumbled with gold — the Quaker Oatmeal Cookies. I grabbed all the flavors in the aisle, went home, enjoyed them, and opted to share my experiences. I’m actually not surprised that Quaker thought of riding through this trend.
Though I bought the packs in the Ever Gotesco Supermarket in Commonwealth Quezon City, I think they are available in major groceries and supermarkets in the Philippines. You may check the cookie aisle of the nearest establishment in your area.
There are different flavors and sizes of the Quaker Oatmeal Cookies. I bought the cookie tray, which is worth P40.00 as of the posting time. Each tray has 12 cookies with a net weight of 108 grams. Meanwhile, the flavors are Apple & Cinnamon, Honey Nuts, Raisins, and Chocolate Chips.
Apple & Cinnamon
From the name itself, Apple & Cinnamon features an apple kick enhanced by the cinnamon aroma. I’m a fan of apple-flavored and cinnamon-flavored pastries. However, combining them confuses my taste buds. Not my cup of tea.
Just like ordinary cookies, this flavor features bits of chocolate chips (think about Chips Ahoy). It’s amazing. The bits of chocolates, however, are a bit thrifty. It’s not what I expect for a brand like Quaker.
Surprisingly, this flavor turned out good. I love it, stating the fact that I’m not a fan of raisins in cookies. There’s something with the cookie that makes it compatible with the dried grapes.
This flavor is delicious. The tangy sweetness of honey is distinguishable but not that overpowering. The nuts, on the other hand, provided this crunch that adds delight to my foodie experience. For me, this is the best among the rest.
Though the taste is amazing and the oatmeal is still the highlight, the cookies are smaller than expected. It is mentioning the fact that it is a product of a well-known brand. Quaker is also stingy. It only added a few pieces of nuts and chocolate chips. Also, they are hard, which lessens the foodie experience.
Each cookie will only cost you P3.3 so I can say it’s quite cheap. However, I’m willing to pay higher than that if the company would offer me bigger and chewable cookies.
