Five Food Finds about Oatmeal

  • Oatmeal is still a bargain at less than 15 cents a serving.
  • An 18-ounce package of Old Fashioned Quaker® Oats contains about 26,000 rolled oats.
  • Oatmeal cookies are the #1 non-cereal usage for oatmeal, followed by meatloaf and fruit crisp.
  • Seventy-five percent of U.S. households have oatmeal in their cupboard.
  • The portrait of the Quaker man on the Quaker® Oats package has been updated just three times since its creation in 1877, once in 1946, again in 1957 and, most recently, in 1972.
