I know this is an odd question... sorry.

I like instant oatmeal alot. Its good for a quick breakfast or dinner when I don't feel like making something. Since they don't really sell it in japan (only flavour is mushroom) I get american friends to mail it to me. They take them out of the original boxes to save room.

Anyway, I have tried to find the nutritional information on this one but I'm not having any luck. Anybody recognize it and can help me out?

thanks

Two foods that I love - but together? Yuck.

The idea of mushroom oatmeal doesn't sound as gross to me - oatmeal itself can be savory or sweet (most folks prepare the latter) - I'd imagine that to be something like a mushroom risotto, with a nuttier (oattier?) flavor.

warlock--you know you're right. nelie posted a recipe for savory oats just the other day and I didn't think of it in that light.

I think I'll pass, lol.

It's a matter of expecting a certain flavor. Like the time I accidentally ate a big glob of wasabi thinking it was guacamole.

Woooooooooooo, let me tell you, I couldn't eat the rest of the day.
