Giant oats Low salt.
No texture no taste. Feel like eating thin paper soaked in hot water.
Absolutely delicious porridge! A little goes a long, long way and a bowlful keeps you satisfied for hours. I sometimes add fresh fruit like blueberries, or a small squeeze of maple syrup, but it's tasty enough on its' own!

Why are Tesco out of stock on a regular bases of Quaker Jumbo Oats when they are available in other super markets?
Great bite to these oats.
I prefer a "bite" to my porridge as opposed to mush. These oats are great. Cook the "old fashioned way" in a saucepan, heat slowly to just boiling, keep stirring, bingo. Delicious.
Avoid! mix with the cheapest smallest fraction!
BAd quality for the price. Avoid. It's the same quality as the cheapest fast porage from tesco brand. I wanted to have a "slower" carbs option and switched for the organic tesco wholegrain after (1.6 for 750grams - just a bit pricier) - these are great quality and won't become an even mass after 2min in the microwave. THen I saw this one, not organic, but wholegrain and "Jumbo" thinking it will be even slower (as it should be bigger) and though not organic... It doesn't worth it! Really, after 2min - same even mass as the cheapest porage! this is mainly because there are not only jumbo wholegrain, but a lot of smaller fraction added for a mass - and it becomes not good fast - gives a bitter taste to the porage and makes it cheap fast carb. Honestly, even though I eat porage every single morning, I'd rather get a new and tasty one -it's less than 2 pounds to fave a better taste for a month! I do not know if Quaker just adds this cheap thing to a good quality one to add a mass and reduce costs, but I won't buy their products any more - felt like it was a lie on the package!
Odd Instructions ?
Usually I have standard oats but tried Jumbo Oats for a change. The normal oats are 40g in saucepan with 300ml of milk or water. The Jumbo oats say only 195ml !. So I tried it. What a stodgy mess - way too thick !. I suggest ignoring the instructions and try 300ml with 40g as per normal oats.
Over-processed & tasteless.
Prefer to soak in milk and eat raw, however, these are over-processed, have little texture and lack flavour. Will be seeking another brand of Jumbo oats - what happened to Jumbo Mornflakes?
love these jumbo sized oats
Love it. Makes fantastic chunky porridge - just n
Love it. Makes fantastic chunky porridge - just need to microwave for a bit longer than standard oats. I usually do 2/3rd jumbo oats to 1/3 standard oats as it gives better consistency and fills me up for longer than just standard oats - also add a handful of raisins and/or dried cranberries for sweetness instead of sugar. Also add to fruit crumble topping for more flavour and texture
