    Well personally, I like to put water, or maybe some milk, in mine and nuke em for a bit. So no, they are not dry...but they are "Quaker" brand.

    Yeah, I usually put water in and nuke them for a minute, and maybe add a little splenda as well for extra flavor. I coulnd't eat dry oats if I tried.

    i can eat it dry with sugar but it dries your mouth out and isnt really as easy as with milk.

    i eat it with milk and sprinkled with sugar.

    Either. When the oats hit the liquid in the shake they won't be dry anymore; and most people blend their shakes, which of course will also blend the oat flakes.

    I personally eat oats uncooked. I make a museli of oats, crushed nuts and dried fruit, add some milk and leave in the fridge for an hour or so; this softens the oats up nicely. Then add a splash more milk, chop some fruit onto the top (bananas or berries are good), and away you go - the perfect breakfast.

    I eat my oats raw for convenience. Take a swig of your favorite diet beverage (water, diet snapple, crystal light) after scooping some in your mouth and swallow. Not that tought.

    I think when people say 'dry' it referrs more to when measuring oats than consuming them.

    Actually, a lot of people I speak to frequently actually eat them uncooked.

    i found that quaker now makes oatmeal in maple and brown sugar flavor, but it's better for you. only 4g of sugar per packet and 120 cals, something like 24 carbs and 4g of protein and only like 2g of fat. i put two of those packets with milk in the microwave for 2 mins and they are awesome.

    I have the quaker "cylinder" original oats. I just boil water in the morning and add it to 2 cups of the oatmeal. Then I add a healthy serving of honey

    Yeah, you can get these little Quaker Oats packets now. They have all kinds of flavors, so it kind of adds a little spice to just the normal oats.
