OR…you can enjoy a blend of oats, barley, rye, quinoa and flax seeds, all in one delicious bowl with new Quaker® Super Grains Instant Hot Cereal. These warm bowls of Quaker oats will be sure to leave everyone ready to start the day!

Find it in the frozen aisle and mix up a salad, side of potatoes or veggies for the ultimate Valentine’s meal.
