If you’re familiar with Bob’s Red Mill, you probably already know how much we love Scotland. Maybe it’s a kinship we feel with a country that is almost always rainy and cool (much like our beloved Oregon) or maybe we love it for birthing our favorite food, oatmeal. Maybe it’s because they awarded us the title of World Porridge Champions in 2009, or maybe it’s because they’re just so darn nice over there. No matter what is at the heart of it, Bob has always loved Scotland and, after a visit many years ago, his love fueled the creation of our Scottish Oatmeal. It was in Scotland that Bob first tasted and fell in love with traditional Scottish oats.
Ground on stone mills, this oatmeal is a true meal. It is smooth and creamy with a texture closer to farina than what we typically associate with oatmeal. It’s not chewy like rolled or steel cut oats, but it still has a bit of bite and texture. This isn’t gruel, but it is a unique breakfast experience.
We have yet to find anything in the States that compares to our Scottish Oatmeal, which is why we are very excited to add Gluten Free Scottish Oatmeal to our robust gluten free oat line. We take the same high-quality, gluten free tested and verified oats that you know and trust and run them through our specialized stone mills in our gluten free facility to create a new, whole grain cereal perfect for warming you up on these brisk *almost* spring days.
To celebrate our new addition and our undying love for Scotland, we’re giving away a package of Gluten Free Scottish Oatmeal to five lucky winners. To enter, follow the prompts below. We’ll select five winners at random from all who enter by 11:59 pm on 04/08/14.
