Product Description


Mmm... How was it for you?
When you think of sensual experiences, porridge might not be at the top of your list. That will all change when you've tried our Fruity Date. We've added rich, complex flavours to our perfect blend of oatmeal and oats. There are DATES, APRICOTS and APPLE PIECES just waiting to release their aromas as they caramelise and cook. We've also added ground apple and CINNAMON to make this a breakfast you'll never forget.

You can make a porridge sweet by putting lots of naturally sweet, juicy fruit in it. Or you can sweeten it by putting in a lot of refined sugars. Guess which we do. We choose our ingredients like we choose our friends: we like them wild, not refined.

Morning. Thanks for waking up with us. We're Rude Health, a small cereal company with big dreams. With a great breakfast inside us, we feel we can do just about anything: change the nation's eating habits, revolutionise farming, and look sexy while line dancing. Sorry if we get carried away. It's the oats talking.

You're in rude health when... carry on camping. You dive into a swimming pool and don't care if your swimsuit slips off. You play hide and seek to win. You can leapfrog traffic bollards without having an embarrassing accident. You're old enough to know better, but you do it anyway. We wanted to make porridge that keeps you feeling that good all day. So we did.

How rude can you get?
If you've been wowed by Fruity Date, why not try Rude Health The Ultimate muesli? Twenty-three delicious organic ingredients make every spoonful different.

- No added salt. No refined sugars.
- Blended with Scottish oats.

Really nice porridge

I really like this product and find it very filling. It is sweeter due to the dried fruit but very yummy. My only - slight - negative is that it is really difficult to distribute the fruit so the first bowls from the packet are packed with apple, dates etc. but by halfway down the box you are left pretty much with oats, oats and oats! Not great packaging but I can live with that as it really does taste good.

I am not sure whether they have changed the contents as well as the box, but this is my 2nd box and each bowl I have tried to make I have had to throw away. The porridge just goes all stringy no matter how much or little liquid I use. It costs more than other Oats and I will not buy it again as so far it has just ended up in the bin.

Gave it a go several times, not for me anymore...

If you like apple husk in your teeth/mouth buy this porridge. I've decided to make my own mix together with top quality jumbo rolled oats and a variety of mixed dried fruits, nuts and seeds. Two more negatives the packaging once opened it's not resealable and the price is OTT

At last a toptastic porridge!

I struggle to find tasty off-the-shelf products for my son that don't contain dairy, wheat or soya. This has brightened up his breakfast time (and mine!). Thank you.

Despite shaking the bag to distribute the contents, the dates in my porridge were noticeable by their absence! Much more apple instead. An average porridge with not much taste.
