Are you finding it really cold this week? The sort of cold where your fingers actually hurt? The type of weather that makes you crave comfort
I was just thinking that porridge was required when the people at Oatburst sent me one of their winter warming pots to review.

Winter warmers for the whole family
New this January, Oatburst is also available in sachets, meaning the porridge can also be enjoyed at home for a quick and tasty breakfast every day. The sachets are made with milk rather than water for a smooth and creamier porridge. It’s also quick and easy to prepare – it simply needs heating in the microwave or bringing to the boil on the hob. As well as the popular plain and golden syrup flavours, Oatburst sachets are also available in strawberry and apricot & honey flavours. These two new tastes are a first for any instant porridge brand. Check them out.
Oatburst sachets can be purchased in two different formats, the plain variants (12 x 27g sachets per box) and the flavoured variants (10 x 36g sachets per box).
