Product Review: Simpli Gluten Free Instant Apricot Oatmeal

Simpli is a very small company specializing in oat products that is just getting into the gluten free market. Their main products are Oat Shakes in several flavors, however they are unfortunately not gluten free at this time. Their sole gluten free product is Apricot Instant Oatmeal, which the company was happy enough to send me a sample box of. First of all, this was my first oatmeal since going gluten free. We all know that oats are a challenge due to cross contamination. Simpli's dedicated gluten free process is transparent and visible for all to see right there on the box, something great to see a company doing to make it's customers feel safe.

The product is made up of organic top quality products, and tastes just that. Unfortunately, this is something foreign to my taste buds in terms of oatmeal. I am used to the prepackaged oatmeal, with the brown sugar or dried fruit that overpowers the pallet and leaves you craving a glass of water. Instead, this oatmeal fills the mouth with a perfect combination of apricot and oat meal flavors. You aren't left overpowered with fake flavor but are instead met with contentment. The texture is typical of oatmeal and perfect for a cold winters morning. Prep time is short, which is always a plus, and as with most oatmeals the servicing size is somewhat small (although still filling).

Overall a great product made by a company highly dedicated to this gluten free product. Their package proves their dedication but the taste and quality of the oatmeal solidified this dedication. I look forward to seeing this product more available on the market, perhaps with more flavors. I think that Apricot was an interesting flavor to start with and I hope more flavors will follow!
