So, although preparing anything more than a bowl of cereal seems like too much work, I've now found a way to have a delicious, filling breakfast with nearly zero work at all. In fact, in less than a minute (and with my eyes only halfway open), I'm able to enjoy premium, restaurant-quality oatmeal thanks to the new Nature Valley Bistro Cups.
Available in two delicious flavors – Apple Cinnamon Almond and Brown Sugar Pecan – Nature Valley Bistro Cups are just about the easiest way to prepare and enjoy oatmeal that I've ever seen. This innovative breakfast option is prepared in a Keurig brewer in only three easy steps... and results in a fresh, hearty option that is tasty down to the last bite!
Considering that I love my Keurig, I love oatmeal and I love any meal option that is extremely easy to prepare and has nearly no cleanup, I was ready to put these Bistro Cups to the test!
There wasn't much less that Nature Valley could have required me to do!
I simply popped the Bistro Cup into my Keurig, poured the 100% Natural Whole Grain Oats and Fruit & Nuts pouches into a mug, brewed, stirred, and enjoyed!
Any hesitation that I had on the taste of these Bistro Cups was immediately dispelled, as they really taste as thick and flavorful as homemade oatmeal. I especially love the way that each bite is filled with the oats, fruits and nuts — mmmm!
As well as providing a full, filling meal, Nature Valley made their Bistro Cups even better by having an extremely easy cleanup process as well. Just toss out the empty packaging and K-cup, place the mug in the dishwasher and I'm ready to move on with my day!
Nature Valley Bistro Cups are available now in the hot cereal aisle at Target, Sam's, Walmart and on Amazon, where a box of three servings retails for around $5.99 and a box of eight retails for around $14.98. While the nearly-$2 per serving initially struck me as a little high, I do think that these Bistro Cups would be especially great and convenient for travel, as there is a Keurig just about everywhere these days!
