Whew, finally got all the new camping gear put away, and realized I forgot to post my opinion on the Bob's Red Mill 5 Grain Rolled Cereal. Like I mentioned before, it looks like large flake oats, but in reality has 5 grains, as the name implies.
Taste wise, it was a little different than oatmeal, but not jarringly so. Depending on the flavour additions you choose, you might not notice a difference at all. I only added some brown sugar and chopped pecans.
The texture was a little different. Some of the flakes obviously soften more than oats do. It wasn't a negative though.
I'll eat it again, no problems. The only issue some might have with it is the instructions say to simmer 10-15 minutes. I don't think I cooked it that long (it would have burned if I had) but for anyone on a longer trip, who's worried about fuel consumption, it might be a concern. The increase in fiber (20% of your daily recommended amount) and the addition of flaxseed boosts it's nutritional value compared to many other hot cereals, so its worth trying.
