When I first spotted these at my local grocer, I figured that they were just some cookie type of product that claimed to be healthier simply because it had a bit of oatmeal in it. Suprisingly I was some what wrong. It actual tastes like a cookie, yes. But at the same time it has some minor health benefits so I don't feel like I am eating empty calories. As far as the satiation in comparison to regular oatmeal I have to say, it definitely has no ability to compete. It doesn't keep you full and satisfied the way oatmeal does. The taste is better than oatmeal though. It kind of tastes like you are eating a frosted oatmeal cookie but it is softer and has an overall better texture and consistency. They are very convenient and serve well as a healthier snack option. They are great for kids too even if they are a bit picky. This product has helped me to meet my children half way in the healthier options battle. I would confidently recommend them to anyone.
