Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies (Raisins) - Influenster Review

Recently I joined Influenster , an exciting product testing group.  They sent me a box of products.  It's my job to test them and let you all know what I think.  I received these free products from Influenster for product testing. The items were complementary, but the opinions are all my own. 


The first product I decided to test was the Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookie from Quaker... mostly because I was hungry.  I was a little concerned about the raisins.  I hate raisins... it's a texture thing.  The first thing I noticed when I took the cookie out of the package is that it seemed really moist and was a really big cookie.  This was no tiny, crunchy cookie, people.  Quaker was serious about this.  I broke the cookie into three pieces.  My husband, my three-year-old, and I all tasted the cookie.

Husband:  "Pretty good... Flavor is kind of like an Archway cookie... I'd definitely eat more."
Son: "Mmmm...."  Do you like it? "Yes."  Tell me about it. "It's... weird... like a cookie, but a muffin... yeah... a muffin... can I have this for breakfast tomorrow, too?"
Me:  Soft. Chewy. Hardly noticed the raisins except in flavor (a good thing for me)

Result:  I would buy these for my family.  I order my groceries online through www.peapod.com and they run $2.69 or $2.79 for a package of 6.  These have 170 calories per serving.  I can see this as a nice little afternoon snack and it does seem like a "healthier" cookie option for my little kiddo than chips or some of the other cookie options on the market.  This was super yummy and the other flavors look tasty as well:  Chocolate & Almond, Cranberry & Yogurt, and Banana Nut are available from my grocer. 

After eating the cookie, I thought maybe I should have taken a picture of it... too late!
