Review: Chick-fil-A - Multigrain Oatmeal

Chick-fil-A's new Multigrain Oatmeal comes in an 8-ounce bowl and features a mix of steel-cut oats, rolled oats, flax, buckwheat flour and whole wheat flour and three packets of toppings: cinnamon brown sugar, roasted mixed nuts (almonds, pecans and walnuts) or a dried fruit blend (cranberries, blueberries, golden raisins and cherries) that you can use as you wish for $2.79.

I'm pretty high on Chick-fil-A quality so I was looking forward to trying this, especially since it's slow-cooked and not instant.
When I first opened it up, I had to mix it a little as there was a tiny pool of water on one side. There's no milk like McDonald's or soymilk like Jamba Juice so Chick-fil-A's offering is a little plainer by default but it was still pretty thick (the thickest fast food oatmeal I've had so far) and hearty. I don't know if you can have them add a splash of milk to yours.

It was looking pretty good as I mixed in each of the bags. The cinnamon was a nice touch to add additional aroma and flavor.
The glazed nuts gave a good blend of sweet, nutty flavor as well as a nice crunch.

The fruits were dried but not too dry and offered a good mix of different tart flavors. I still like McDonald's fresh apples a little better though.

Overall, Chick-fil-A does a pretty mean, quality bowl of oats. I will point out for the value-inclined that McDonald's version is cheaper, though instant, and while Jamba Juice is slightly more expensive, you get noticeably more oatmeal out of it.
