CHICAGO, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- From the people who have created delicious oatmeal for more than a century, The Quaker Oats Company, a division of PepsiCo, is proud to introduce new Quaker Real Medleys, pairing beloved Quaker Oats with real chunks of plump fruit or crunchy nuts for the ultimate oatmeal experience. Perfectly portable and portion-controlled in a handy cup, Quaker Real Medleys are a mouthwatering take on a classic breakfast favorite.
"Today, women are busier than ever before, and in the morning time crunch, a nourishing breakfast is either skipped or sacrificed for food that's convenient, but maybe not as desirable," said Andrew Sutherland, Senior Director of Marketing, Quaker Foods & Snacks North America. "New Quaker Real Medleys are perfect for women who want to start their mornings with a wholesome and delicious oatmeal breakfast that adds a little extra flavor and fun in a convenient, portable cup."
Quaker Real Medleys come in four combinations – Apple Walnut, Summer Berry, Peach Almond and Cherry Pistachio – and are made with multi-grains, including hearty rolled oats, plus real pieces of apples, peaches, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries or crunchy nuts. Just add hot water or microwave with water for a uniquely satisfying meal at your fingertips, ready to enjoy in minutes and take on-the-go.
Available in grocery stores nationwide at a suggested retail price of $1.79 per cup, every serving of Real Medleys offers more than one serving of whole grains. Each flavor is also a good source of fiber (containing 3-8 grams total fat per serving). For more information on Quaker Real Medleys, please visit www.quakeroats.com or www.Facebook.com/Quaker.
