Bzz Agent Review: Quaker Oatmeal Squares

It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned Bzz Agent, the word-of-mouth marketing site that I’ve been a member of since 2005.  Last fall I happened to be in a lot of campaigns, not the least of which was the Kindle!  Yup, still giddy about that one.  But I was pretty jacked about this one, too. :-)

Recently I was invited to join the Quaker Oatmeal Squares Bzz Campaign.  So Bzz sent me, for FREE, one full-size box of the newest flavor, Honey Nut Oatmeal Squares, and three single-serve boxes to give to friends and family.

First, the facts about Quaker Oatmeal Squares:

  • Available in Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Honey Nut and Golden Maple
  • Made with natural flavors and provides 46 grams of whole grains per serving — 96% of your minimum daily recommendation of whole grains!*
  • Delivers 5 grams of dietary fiber and 6 grams of protein per serving
  • A delicious way to help meet the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommends at least half of all grains consumed should be whole grains, or at least 3 servings of 16 grams each
  • Available in most grocery stores nationwide (Golden Maple available exclusively at Walmart)

I have been a big fan of Quaker Oatmeal Squares since they were first introduced.  When I was pregnant with my first and couldn’t choke down those horse-pill sized prenatal pills, I ate Quaker Oatmeal Squares every day because it provides the required daily intake of folic acid, a very important thing to have enough of when pregnant.

The first square I popped into my mouth immediately made me think of Golden Graham cereal… but a much healthier version!  Ding ding ding!  Yes, I will be adding this flavor to my infamous pantry stockpile called Little Sam’s Club.

I also like the fact that this cereal can also substitute as a portable snack.  Just pop a couple of squares into your mouth when you’re on the go.  Or your toddler’s.  Quaker is a brand that I’m always happy to eat, too.  I just wish they’d issue more coupons!  Because when it’s not on sale, I don’t buy it.  However, Little Sam’s Club has a healthy stockpile of Quaker Oatmeal Squares from a promotion this past fall at Festival Foods when there were coupons available.

If you’d like to try the newest flavor of Quaker Oatmeal Squares, check out the Quaker Facebook page here and request a free sample box like the one shown above.
