Nairns Gluten Free Porridge Review

Porridge Porridge Porridge.

The breakfast of winter.

As you may know, I’m not a cereal person. But I am a porridge fan!

So, when I was running late on Sunday for work (no surprise I hear you say) I grabbed one of these bad boys.

20131203-145654.jpgIts very simple, you fill the water up to the line, stir and leave for 4 minutes. The problem was, I didn’t have four minutes. So all ready to leave, I put the water in and left with the pot and spoon in hand! It made an excellent hand warmer on the journey! Now, I only like around 10 minute walk away from my work, so I was pretty behind schedule to be rushing around. However, as promised on the packet, it was ready in 4 minutes, so out came my spoon and I ate it walking down the high street. This porridge lives up to its name…easy! IT was SOOOOO easy! However, if i made it next time I would put a lot less water in, as I like mine pretty stodgy! It was already equipped with milk powder and sugar so it wasn’t like that awful porridge you make with just water. That stuff makes me gag!



These are not so easy as the easy pots…as they are just pure oats in the sachets. You can make them either in the pan or in the microwave…both options take 2 and 1/2 minutes but in the microwave there is less washing up = my choice!

So just pop your oats and 180ml of milk (or water bleurgh! Sorry lactose free people) into the bowl and turn on the poppity ping! Still pretty easy I’ll admit! and delicious! Have it like me, with a dash of brown sugar? or add in some cinnamon for a christmassy winter touch or fruit for some of your five a day!

Now…I know I received these for free, that does not mean I was bribed. This did not effect my review and this is my honest opinion!
