Rokit Oats

by Meghann on March 25, 2011

Happy Friday Everyone!

I hope everyone’s Friday is off to a good start! Mine started with a slow 5 mile run.

My upper body is still a little sore from Wednesday’s water fun (re: ouch), so I kept the pace even and steady to prevent too much arm swinging. Arm swinging was no bueno.

After my run I refueled with a new ‘Energy Mix Oatmeal’ the folks at Rokit Fuel had sent me to sample.

The Rokit Fuel is designed for quick meals on trails or before big races. Theoretically you could just pour the water in the package and eat. This would be perfect when traveling for races and eats are limited.

I opted to go the bowl route. I’ll save eating directly out of the package for road trips. πŸ™‚

Just add water.

And mix.

I also added an apple and a dollop of almond butter.

The oatmeal was really spicy and nutty. The flavor was great, especially when mixed with the cool, sweet apple and almond butter. It’s probably the best instant oats I’ve ever had.

(it shows the e-mail too, but I blurred it out for privacy’s sake.)

I actually didn’t like how just the name and e-mail popped up. It would have been nice if the whole comment had shown, but a quick search in the comments for the e-mail, I found the original comment without a problem. πŸ™‚

Congratulations Meredith!
Wouldn’t your hand burn if you added hot water directly to the bag?
It looks good, but I remain skeptical. Yay for new couches!

7 Stacey March 25, 2011 at 10:28 am

waiting patiently for the new couch and pictures! I tried an instant oat before that was similar where you could use the bag after you dumped the oats out to measure water, it was hot to handle. but at work where I don’t have a measuring device it gets the job done.

Yeah for new furniture!

When I heard the name of the product, it made me think of the News Radio episode where Phil Hartman was promoting Rocket Fuel on his radio show: “DAMN…That’s kra-zizza.” Or something like that, haha. πŸ˜›

I need some of those oats!

18 Jason Fitzgerald March 25, 2011 at 11:56 am

That oatmeal looks delicious. What’s the sugar content? And can you use cold water (will hot water melt the bag?)?

19 Faith @ lovelyascharged March 25, 2011 at 12:06 pm

That plugin is so cool – I bet it saves a lot of time from counting entries, adding a spreadsheet and all that mess!

20 Kacy March 25, 2011 at 1:30 pm

So you don’t have to heat it up? Sounds interesting!

21 Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather March 25, 2011 at 1:37 pm

What a cool instant mix! Nice apple and nut butter additions too πŸ™‚

22 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife March 25, 2011 at 2:07 pm

I’m not a fan of instant oats…they need to have more texture.
