Can anyone please let me know where I can buy 'Quaker- Oat So Simple' porridge in Basel or a similar product?

I've had a scout about the supermarkets and I can't seem to spot them or anything similar!

Thanks

The best I have found for Quaker Oats is Kölln flocken which I think you can get from Mueller near Claraplatz. It comes in a waxed paper bag with four light and navy blue squares. If its not there, then try over the border in Lörrach at Rewe or Mueller again.

Not so sure about Oat so Simple as I've never bought it.

My preference: cooked with water and a topping of cold water on top! Yum!

Re: The porridge thread, in all its varietal glory

Newbie recipe :

1 cup of oats per person
A pinch of salt
1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of semi-skimmed milk
A handful of raisins

Keep the milk bottle to hand and add as necessary, while stirring. Once it has got the right consistency, remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly, and add brown sugar.
I like both the crunchy kind and the sticky molasses kind. You won't be so hungry for a big lunch and the 'slow' sugars keep your energy level up all morning.

Nooooooo, not brown sugar. Here we go again

You just invented mueslidge (or is it porruesli )
Not my own recipe, think I found it from some fitness forum originally (also its quite effortless to make since oats are added to boiling water so there is no need to stir)

Re: The porridge thread, in all its varietal glory

Coop has changed the oatmeal offer within its Prix Garantie line.

It used to come in 1kg bags, and only in one variety (fine, quick-cooking flakes).

Now it comes in 500g packages and in two varieties: whole rolled oats and quick-cooking.



Price is CHF 0.70 so about the same as Aldi and Lidl but easier to find.
