When Oatmeal was Cool for Breakfast 1993 When Oatmeal was Cool for Breakfast 1993 Fare from 1993 (OH GOD SHIVERY SPINE) Quakers Kids' Choice Instant Oatmeal was a little more mundane but still a pretty cool and fun product. Coming in serving-sized packets it featured mini packets inside that flavoured the oatmeal with your choice of Radical Raspberry, Strawberries n' Stuff or Cinnamagic. The only real cool thing about this oatmeal was the flavour packets turned the oatmeal different colours which is probably to be expected considering the flavour packets were different colours than the oatmeal itself and well.. Changing of colours tends to happen when you add colour into something that is otherwise colourless. Kind of lame but the stuff was good so we'll throw them a bone. Honestly this one probably was discontinued due to lack of consumer appeal, it wasn't that it was bad but.. Face it.. If you had the other oatmeals to choose from such as Cookie Blast or Under Cover Bears are you going to choose the oatmeal that just changes colour because you added a coloured flavour packet? No. You're going to pick the cooler and more fun ones because you're a kid and you're simple.

Oatmeal Swirlers  when I ate it 1990 or so I believe these came out in 1989, but for the purpose of this article, I remember eating it in the early 1990's. Maybe 1990-1992? The best of the Oatmeal world? The Oatmeal everyone seems to remember, a little commercial launched in the early 90s; General Mills Oatmeal Swirlers. Everyone loved Oatmeal Swirlers, at least everyone that could remember them or does remember them and anyone that had them at one point or another in their lives. This was a brilliant oatmeal, the epitome of fun with food it was an oatmeal that not only came with it's own flavoring you could choose (six different flavors in all) But the flavouring packets were also created in such a way to urge you to cut a single snippet off and use them as drawing implements on your oatmeal creating your own artistic expression upon a steaming bowl of mush. I don't care if it sounds horrible, it wasn't; it was AWESOME. From Tic-Tac-Toe played presumably with your evil alter-ego since I assume you're not going to have another person hovering over your bowl playing a rousing game of Tic-Tac-Toe against you in your oatmeal? To happy faces and pretty much anything else you could fathom or at least manage to draw on your warm gruel with your gel incarnation of artful expression the gel delights were many and plenty. Strawberry, Maple, Brown Sugar, Grape, Orange or Milk Chocolate are the flavours that this came in so far as I can remember, this is purely off a decades old fuzzy memory and at the time I wasn't in the habit of obsessively remembering things such as these because I didn't fathom they'd ever be gone and need to be remembered so don't quote me absolutely on the flavours. Never mind that, I'm right about most of them that much I know and another thing I know is that this was an unbelievably awesome oatmeal that should have never been discontinued but was. If one major product General Mills absolutely needs to bring back it's Oatmeal Swirlers Oatmeal and in that interest, I'm bringing attention to a petition I found online. It's small now but I feel perhaps if we spread this around the retro-sites of the internet maybe we can make a dent, maybe General Mills can be shown reason and the era of the Oatmeal Swirler may once more return to us in it's glorious gooey goodness. Please consider taking part and spreading this around! There is a Pension to bring them back! http://www.change.org/petitions/general-mills-bring-back-the-product-oatmeal-swirlers-instant-oatmeal
