The price may vary depending on the branch.

As Shutter suggests phoning the branch in question is the answer

Re: Porridge

Why buy porridge when it is SO simple to make.
per person : 1 cup of porridge oats (real ones not the instant [-Censored-]), 1 cup of water and 1/2cup of milk, pinch of salt to taste.
Add all together and stir continuously until thick (about 5 min), turn down/off and cover until ready to eat.

Had some this morning after walking the dog in the snow.
I tend to add sultana's to mine and extra salt as needed NO SWEETENER/honey/syrup etc.
Reminds me of when I was in hospital a couple of years ago, got porridge for breakfast and had to ask for salt, all the orderly said was "ahh a real Scotsman then", and the strange look I got in Dublin when I asked for salt for my porridge way back in the early 90's.

@HairyMcbiker

Agree it is so easy, and quick, to make.

I like to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and occasionally some apple chunks.

Re: Porridge

Never like porridge, even when I was a kid....

 

Weetabix is quicker... and much more palatable.. !

Re: Porridge

Are you thinking of "Shredded Wheat" ?   that certainly does look like  ( and taste like ) straw !..

And according to this

The cereal, created in the US in the 1890s, has long been sold as good for the evolving British lifestyle. A newspaper advert in 1902 described it as "a relief from the monotony of everlasting porridge", while, by 1943, it was "an ideal food for all war workers".

Re: Porridge

2 Shredded Wheat every morning for me.

I used to love porridge because I could add lots of Golden Syrup.

Re: Porridge

I don't like Weetabix but do like Shredded Wheat, and have the Bitesize version with a few Frosties on top for the sugar.

Ordinary porridge oats with a bit of milk and a banana sliced into it makes quite a tasty cold breakfast.  It has been claimed that oats play a part in lowering cholesterol, and the potassium in the banana could be good for your blood pressure.

Re: Porridge

Funny how tastes change.

I used to love Quaker Oats with milk and sugar, and loathed bacon.

Now it's the reverse.
