We recently got given a packet of Better Oats Oat Revolution Instant Oatmeal through Angel Food and I thought I’d compare to Quaker for backpacking. First off, they both weight the same according to my scale at 1.25oz per packet. Since this was true I assumed that the calories would also be the same. Not true, the Better Oats has 160 calories to Quakers 100 calories and the Better oats package doubles as a water measuring cup with a line that say, fill water to here. The fact that the Better Oats has more calories per ounce should be enough to make them superior for backpacking but they do one better, all of the fruit flavors have real dehydrated fruit in them! This does mean that it takes a tad more water to rehydrate the fruit bits but the added nutritional value, flavor, and calories with no added weight really makes the Better Oats Oat Revolution Oatmeal a no brainer! I personally like to add some syrup over the whole thing for added sweetness and a low weight calorie boost.
