Oats Overnight is a company serving overnight oats mailed straight to your door (or PO Box in my case). You can choose from multiple options, and there’s even a subscription (which I chose). The Oats are all high in protein, and gluten free. You can use milk or milk alternative (never water), and you get a free Blender Bottle!
The flavors I received were:
- Peach Upside Down Cake
- Strawberries & Cream
- PeanutButter Cookie Dough Cacao Crunch
- Maple Pancakes
- Green Apple Cinnamon
- Blueberry Cobbler
- Mocha Dream
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana
- Dark Chocolate Cherry (flavor in development)
Convenient: the only times I did not have these for breakfast were my days off and days I was too lazy to poor 8 ounces of vanilla almond milk in the shaker bottle. There were two of those lazy days.
All you do is pour in your milk or milk alternative, pour in your chosen flavor, shame vigorously for a few seconds to mix. Throw that puppy in the fridge and grab it in the morning for a quick breakfast! I had mine while driving to work.
Flavor: I enjoyed every flavor. The only one I did not like as much was the Mocha Dream. I’m not a coffee drinker and I’m (supposed to be) avoiding caffeine. This was the only one that had caffeine. I think my favorite is between the Peach Upside Down Cake and Blueberry Cobbler! But ask me tomorrow I might change my mind.
The consistency is a thin oatmeal, obviously, with bits that need chewing though if you really wanted to drink it, it wouldn’t be hard. Heck, get ya a boba straw abs slurp it right up.
All the flavors seemed to be perfectly sweet for me, and I’m assuming the sweetened vanilla almond milk contributes to that. But at this point I couldn’t imagine having it with anything else!
Benefits: I did not stay full until my break two hours after I’d finished my oats. But I didn’t have that shlumpy feeling I get after a greasy fast foot breakfast, and I wasn’t hungry as soon as when I had my “I’m late I’m late for a work day” pop tart.
Cost: I ordered the Party Pack (shown above) and I made it a subscription. That gave me 10% off. Subscription came with added benefits.
I ordered 16 meals, and my subscription came with a free blender bottle and bottles for life.
Cost: If I (get myself up early enough to) stop by a fast food place for breakfast every morning I pay an average of $7.50 per breakfast. For 16 breakfasts that’s $120!
Calories: Hardee’s Frisco Breakfast sandwich (my fav) 430 (Jebus Crist!) hash rounds 230-excluding the drink because I’m embarrassed.
Cost: Oats Overnight (excluding the almond milk as my husband buys it for the family and the oats are MINE) at $3.09 per meal, $49.50 for 16.
Calories: Oats Overnight: the highest calorie breakfast Mocha Dream: 300 Lowest: Blueberry Cobbler: 280
I’m being 100% honest here: the only problem I had was getting the last gulp or two out of the bottom of the bottle while driving a full size truck on a two late road through a town. The thicker bits tend to settle in the bottom so your left wanting.
You could be smarter than me and (a) not Oats and Drive or (b) wait until you’re parked and down the last bit.
Conclusion: Will I Buy Again?
If you can’t already tell, yes. In fact the only reason I remembered to write this review is because they sent me an email saying my subscription is about due, do I want to edit my order? I asked to switch out the Mocha Dream for either Orange Creamsicle (which is a last chance flavor) or Mint Chocolate Chip. Not sure I should be having dessert for breakfast but honey, I’m 37. Ain’t no one telling me what to do!
