If you had a choice between banana nut bread or oatmeal, we’ve got a pretty good idea what you would pick.
Now Nabisco has made the decision more difficult with its Banana Nut Bread Instant Multigrain Hot Cereal. The blend of oats, wheat, barley, banana chips and almonds combines the hearty wholesomeness of hot cereal with a nutty sweetness that left The Spokesman-Review’s reader food panel plenty satisfied.
Next we’d like to see them do something with oatmeal and Dove bars. But not necessarily for breakfast.
