Starbucks now serving oatmeal?

I only bought it because I had a free coupon, so technically, I didn't buy it. The oatmeal comes with three little packets, one of nuts (?), one of dried fruit, and one of brown sugar. Because Starbucks is SO CONCERNED about your waistline, on the front of each little packet it indicates the calories. Interestingly, the dried fruit has more calories than the sugar. So I of course went for the dried fruit. I guess it was good, but can you really f* up oatmeal. And for their retail price ($2.45) can't you buy a whole canister of oatmeal & just add your own hot water?

I've been tempted to buy the Starbucks Oatmeal, but I clearly get enough calories for the day from my Venti Pumpkin Spice Latte.....

thanks for "following" our blog ( I grew up in Tucson (where Parker and I went to High School), lived in Scottsdale (worked for the Arizona Biltmore) and had a house in Gilbert, before moving to insane California.

Keep reading (and stay away from fattening oatmeal).
