Good Food Made Simple Vermont Maple Syrup Organic Oatmeal Review

Good Food Made Simple Vermont Maple Syrup Organic Oatmeal

With their Vermont Maple Syrup Organic Oatmeal, Good Food Made Simple is really living up to its brand name. This dish is extremely simple, as you can see from looking at the incredibly short list of ingredients on the packaging. Steel-cut oats, organic maple syrup, organic brown sugar, sea salt, and some water. The goal, then, seems to be combining a few organic ingredients into a hot breakfast treat.

The heating process is perhaps the least simple thing about this dish, though we wouldn’t call it complex. Open the box, pull out one of its two inner packs of oatmeal, run that pack under some hot water, open it up, plop it into a microwave-safe bowl, and heat it up for three and a half minutes or so.

Out pops a steamy bowl of oatmeal, plain and simple.

It’s simple enough that you might call it unremarkable, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste good. It’s just not going to stand out from many of the other oatmeal dishes on the market. On the other hand, there’s nothing about this dish that we would change, though we might be tempted to doctor it up with a little bit of fruit, as is shown on the box.

Good Food Made Simple’s Vermont Maple Syrup Organic Oatmeal is as simple as it gets, but in this case, that ends up being a very good thing.
