    The cocoa added a unique flavor to the mix. It was very good without being to sweet. If you like sweet oatmeal this isn't for you. I don't though so it was perfect with the bonus of lots of antioxidants from the blueberries! - 3/27/07

    I could swallow it. I had to add splenda, but then it had that chemical taste. I was sad that I couldn't taste the chocolate. My daughter(an oatmeal lover) didn't finish her bowl. - 6/2/08

    I really did not like the cocoa added to the mixture. It really needed more sweetness added with that in there I wanted to add more brown surgar and I am trying to stay away from the butter and surgar. I may try with just blueberries next time or stawberries but I know I did not like the cocoa. - 3/26/07

    Instead of the brown sugar I added splenda. I eat oatmeal with flax and blueberries everyday, but not with chocolate. I know chocolate is healthy so it is an interesting way to get it in without a lot of calories. - 3/25/09

    Interesting flavor as is. I HAD to add some splenda and a touch of milk though. It was a little too plain for me. It doesn't taste chocolaty, which was a disappointment, although it doesn't taste like plain outmeal either. I'll try it again with more experimenting - 4/21/07

    A nice change to the regular oatmeal. I added soy milk to the finished product because that is how I eat it. - 3/7/08

    This was very plain and almost pasty tasting. I had to add additional water just so I could swallow it. It is an interesting recipe, but I think I will stick to my homemade apple cinnamon oatmeal; it is lower in calories and it tastes much more to my liking. - 5/3/07

    This was very good. I don't like a lot of sweet things so I didn't even use a whole tbls of brown sugar. I drizzled a little maple syrup on my boyfriends for some sweetness but I ate my mostly plain. We both thought it was very good and will make it again. - 2/21/10
