New Product Review:

Nutrition For Women Vanilla Cinnamon Oatmeal

From Quaker
Reviewed by Mr Breakfast on 2/18/2004

Finally... an oatmeal strong enough for a man, but made for a woman. The box states that this is "a delicious way to give each day a great start - a unique combination of nutrients designed specially for woman." The packaging and promotion of this product cement its position as the Oprah Winfrey of hot cereals.

Let's set aside the "For Women" gimmick and compare this to other instant oatmeal products on the market. Male or female, we can all appreciate the increase of calcium to 50% recommended daily allowance from 10% in most of Quaker's other brands. Both sexes can use the added iron, Vitamin D and Vitamin E. Actually, men might better appreciate the Vitamin E as it aids in healthy erections.

It's very easy to sell the public on added nutrition if - and this is a very big "if" - taste doesn't suffer as a result. So the big question, how does Quaker Nutrition For Women Vanilla Cinnamon Oatmeal taste?

Ho. Hum. It tastes okay. You can taste the vanilla and the hint of cinnamon adds a subtle kick. The texture of the cereal is the same as old favorites like "Apples & Cinnamon" and "Maple & Brown Sugar".

It has been said that the best thing you can say about a healthy product is that it doesn't taste like a healthy product. That is definitely the case here. But that's hardly enough to motivate someone down a grocery aisle.

$2.49 reflects the price of 12.6 ounce box containing 8 packets.

The price we paid: $2.49

As I approached my 50's (premenopausal), I figured I should try this product because it had calcium and soy (source of estrogen). I guess I was not in need of extra estrogen as I developed a massive amount of fibroids (excess estrogen encourages fibroid growth) after using this product. Are the two related? I'm not sure. I loved this oatmeal and I am wondering why they took it off the market. Maybe this happened to others. Soy is powerful stuff and I'm not angry about the possible connection. It's my own fault for what I consume.

So, I just found this site while searching the web to see where I could buy this oatmeal. This is the only oatmeal I like - right out of the package. I do not like the plain oatmeal (have to add sugar and butter - like I had as a kid) and do not like any of the "sweet" oatmeals - which are basically the rest. This one is just right. I have tried the best brands of stone cut Irish oatmeals, organic, all natural... etc. and added my own ingredients... just couldn't do it. Obviously, the person who suggested to "add a little vanilla extract and cinnamon" to regular oatmeal never tasted this one. This is the ONLY oatmeal that I actually looked forward to eating. I wonder if anyone has called Quaker to ask why it was discontinued. I will try that! Maybe if we all did that we'd get it back? 1-800-367-6287

I agree with everyone! This oatmeal was great & delicious. I was looking in all the stores and could not find it. I can't understand why it was removed, maybe not enough sales? Quaker should bring it back, I plan to call/email them too.

You can get Kashi vanilla oatmeal which is better for you than Quaker and add cinnamon. That's as close as we are going to get I think.

I have an Autistic son and this was the only thing he will eat other than donuts... It really help me get some type of healthy food in his diet. I call Quaker and ask that they bring it back. I guess the more people that call there is a chance to get it back.

I liked the product as well. The last time I bought this was at Big Lots 3 years ago and never saw it again. Seems like they also discontinued the Simple Harvest line which I also loved. These were much better than the new True Delights line... Hazlenut Latte and Wild Blueberry Muffin.

PLEASE HELP! I can't believe that I have been unable to find Vanilla Cinnamon Nutrition for Women Oatmeal any where from coast to coast. My mother has suffered from Alzheimer's disease and one of the highlight of her day is the breakfast of this delicious and healthy cereal. After reading all of the comments I have concluded that this cereal is no longer available. PLEASE, Quaker, Bring it back!! There are obviously a lot of people who feel as strongly about it as I do.

I just noticed that it has been a year since I last posted to this subject and at that time I was again looking for this wonderful product from Quaker and found it labeled with new packaging and name. Now, it has disappeared from Harris Teeter''s shelves and I am so disappointed in Quaker. Surely they aren''t losing that much money on this product; could it be the marketing and merchandising. What do we need to do to keep this product on the shelves. Not only do I love the taste, but I depend on the nutrition benefits.

It's no longer packaged as "Nutrition for Women." It's now just packaged as part of their regular oatmeal line. It's still called "Vanilla Cinnamon" and touts how it lowers cholesterol. I found some at a discount store. You can also order it on Amazon, but it's pricey. I'm going to see if my local grocery will order some... Good luck....

I hate oatmeal. Like alot of other people have commented, I would try to eat it, because I knew it was good for me, but I couldn't stand the taste/texture etc. of most flavors of oatmeal. I actually find myself craving this - and like most others, it is next to impossible to find this at most stores. I am stocking up in case they discontinue it!!

Quaker Oatmeal Nutrition for Women Vanilla Cinnamon was my favorite breakfast food. It also provided a very good source of iron in my diet. Since I have been unable to find this product, I now find that I am anemic and have to take iron supplements. I would love to be able to find this product back on the grocery shelves.

I can't find this either and believe me, I've searched! I too have been recently told that I have "moderate osteoporosis" and I'll be 44 this month! I believe I can attibute it to an anti-seizure medication that I take for my chronic migraines, but trying to get all of my calcium intake would be helpful with products like this, but everyone seems to have stopped selling it!

I am a 53 year young female that was diagnosed with serious osteoporosis 2 years ago. It came as a complete surprise to my doctor and me as I am very active and try to work out at the gym four times a week. I absolutely love this oatmeal and have never liked oatmeal. My cholesterol came down once I started eating and the benefits I receive from the 50% calcium intake is so helpful since I need to take in 1800 mg a day. My grocery store stopped carrying this brand, Walmart, Kmart stopped, but I did find it in Harris Teeter. Thank you Harris Teeter! and Quaker for stepping up to our health needs.
