In short: They will always have a home in my cupboard.
Texture: The various flakes retain their texture when used in overnight oats recipes and baked oats. The millet retains some crunch which could be good or bad depending on your personal tastes.
Taste: The mixture of grains offers great flavour, and more diverse nutritional profile than regular oatmeal. It has a slight buttery taste when left overnight that I find quite pleasant. There is no trace of the acidic aftertaste quinoa products usually leave.
Value: I find grains in general are fairly inexpensive so I’m going to compare the Original and Ancient Grains blend from the same manufacturer. This 750 g bag was the same price, $4, as the 1 Kg bag of the Orginal blend. Roughly $1 more per bag (for quantity), or about 3 cents more per 30g serving. For my 3 cents it’s completely worth it.
Issues: The half empty bag feels like wasted packaging. I know the bag size is to make everything look nice on the shelf and standardize ordering and machinery. Still annoys me. I would prefer they filled the bag fuller and raised the price accordingly.
All in all I am very pleased with this lovely blend and I’m glad I tried it.
