National Blueberry Month: Better Oats Review and Giveaway

July is National Blueberry Month.  To help my family and followers celebrate, Better Oats sent me a box of their delicious Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal.

Oatmeal has always been a breakfast favorite in our household, especially in the cold winter months.  I always stock up on instant oatmeal and quick oats when it's on sale.

The last time I stocked up I purchased 35 boxes of instant oatmeal and 10 quick oats for the pantry.  

I love oatmeal because it's quick, easy, convenient and healthy.  I also love that is comes in so many different flavors.  Most importantly, my kids love it!

Better Oats comes in 26 different varieties including cinnamon roll, dark chocolate, apples and cinnamon and peaches n' cream. 

Better Oats uses only the finest and most natural ingredients.  100% whole grain oats, real pieces of fruit and thick oats make for a healthy and delicious breakfast or snack anytime of the day.

 My kids and I were both excited to try the Better Oats Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal.  Two days after it arrived it was cold, dreary and rainy which made for the perfect opportunity.  The aroma as it cooked was enough to make your mouth water.  It smelled exactly like freshly baked blueberry muffins.

The sleek box design holds 5 pouches of instant oatmeal that each act as their very own measuring cup. That's right!  I love that I can simply pour the water right in the pouch without getting out a measuring cup!

How did it taste?  One word says it all... DELICIOUS!  It was honestly some of the best instant oatmeal that I have ever tasted.  If I didn't know any better I would honestly think it was homemade.  What did the kids think?  Well, let's just say that they each ate two pouches and I was left with only one.



WIN IT:

 ONE lucky Being Frugal and Making it Work reader is going to receive an entire month's supply (1 case) of Better Oats Instant Oatmeal!

Mandatory Entry:

Visit Better Oats and tell me which flavor you would most like to try.



This giveaway will end at 11:59 pm EST on Saturday July 30th

This giveaway is open to US residents only. The winner will be chosen using Random.org, with the winner will be notified by e-mail. Please make sure I have a way to contact you. You can leave your email, or link to your blog site. The winner will have 48 hours to respond, if there is no response another winner will be chosen.



**I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and/or believe will be a good fit for my readers.  The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.  Results may vary.  I was not compensated in any other way for this review.  The generous sponsor of this giveaway will mail the prize directly to the winner.  

A special thanks to Better Oats for this wonderful opportunity!
