Special K now does porridge - who knew?

I have to admit, I haven't always been into porridge. I'm not really a fan of anything with the consistency of rice pudding. But as long as porridge is thick, flavoured, and not gloopy, I'm ok. Recently I came across Special K's own version of porridge and with Special K red berries being one of my favourite cereals, I just had to give it a try.

It really couldn't be any easier. All you do in rip the sachet open 
along the dotted line, and pour into a microwave safe bowl:

Don't throw away that sachet just yet! If you look closely, you'll see a fill line. Pour milk into the empty sachet - it will hold don't worry! - up until the fill line:

Pour into the bowl and mix well:

Microwave for two and a half minutes, stir again, and 
then leave to stand for an extra couple of minutes:


It really couldn't be any easier. Perfect for the morning rush when time is never on your side. When it comes out the microwave, it smells AMAZING - a mix of berries with vanilla notes. For me personally, it was a good consistency - not too runny and not too thick. Taste wise, it was good - you definitely got hints of fruit. But overall I think I still prefer their red berry cereal because it has bigger pieces of fruit. The fruit in the porridge is very finely chopped so you don't always manage to taste it. I imagine it would be improved with larger pieces of fruit. But all in all, perfect for the approaching cold months and I'll be definitely be stocking up on these!

Do you like any Special K products?

  1. This sounds tasty! Porridge is the only cereal I'll eat but it can be a bit boring sometimes xxx

    1. So true! I only buy flavoured ones like syrup, apple and vanilla, etc x x

  2. it doesn't look that good but according to your description, i'm def gonna try it! love special k's cereal so much!


    1. Porridge definitely isn't the prettiest of foods, but based on the taste, it's worth a try x x
