This product has a very interesting story to it. First we took Oatgurt Natural and added big red strawberries. We did this because strawberries taste good and when we asked them what they would like to hang out with, they answered: Oats! It didn’t take more than about 30 seconds before the product developers were going crazy. “Did you hear that? The strawberries said oats, they said oats!” And that was all it took for the product developers to cram as much healthy coolness as they could into a one liter package. What coolness? How does vitamin D2 sound? Or riboflavin? B12? Extra calcium? More? We promise to stop there if you go to the fridge and pull out a carton and pour some into your favorite bowl. Oh, that’s the other thing, we have already stocked your fridge just in case you made it all the way here to the end of this sentence.
The strawberries are real. What’s so amazing about that you ask? Nothing really. But there are a lot of products out there that claim to be strawberry and don’t really have any real strawberries in them. A sign of the times maybe, but we like the old fashioned approach that says if you call it strawberry, you put strawberries into it. And while we were at it, we picked out the best strawberries we could find. We’ve also enriched this product with vitamins and calcium so that you pretty much get a balanced meal in each spoonful.
What might be less amazing
We have added some sugar to this product and the reason we have done so is that we want it to taste really great. It’s easy to say just cut the sugar but that doesn’t work on everything. Our feeling is that the first time you try this product you’ll most likely compare it to yogurt and since there is sugar in yogurt, we needed to add a little to keep you interested until the oats could begin to work on your tastebuds. One more thing before you go: because our products consist of carbs, unsaturated fat, protein and powerful soluble fiber, they pack energy from multiple nutritional sources and not empty calories from sugar. So when we say added sugar, it is sugar but not sugar. If that makes sense.
