Good Food Made Simple – In The Freezer Aisle!

REVIEWS | | June 3, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Recently I attended a breakfast hosted by a company called Good Food Made Simple. Their aim: make healthy food accessible by all. They focused on one meal that has been neglected somewhat, breakfast. Granted there are pancakes and waffles in the freezer aisles but nothing much else and nothing that is really healthy. Can you believe these guys have frozen oatmeal? I know, I wondered why and realized how much I love oatmeal but the instant one does not always feel so good so I don’t end up making it much. Currently they even have eggs, both whole and egg whites and like all of their frozen foods all are cooked completely and in individual portions. Talk about simplicity and that would be faster than driving through a fast food place!

At the event they dressed up the oatmeal and eggs to give ideas if you don’t want to have it as is. You will find them in your regular grocer as it seems their aim is to try and get the regular shopper to eat healthier.

    I’ve never seen these foods. I’m not sure about the frozen oatmeal- looks interesting!

    I have a little one that is VERY allergic to eggs and kinda allergic to oats. We just found out about a month ago. This has definitely made breakfast more difficult. He can eat healthy, but not much variety. He eats yogurt or cheese and at least one type of fruit and occasionally gluten-free Chex.

    We were introduced to this amazingly convenient Oatmeal at Costco’s earlier this year and have been huge fans ever since. The two varieties I’ve had, maple surup and mixed fruit, are both wonderful. The ease, simplicity and deliciousness of the oatmeal makes it an ideal breakfast. I’ve eaten more oatmeal in the last few months than I had in the previous 60 years partly because there’s no measuring, cooking or cleanup outside of a single bowl, and no guesswork on microwave cooking time. Unfortunately, Costco, in their infinite corporate wisdom, has stopped carrying Good Food Made Simple’s oatmeal for the present so I’m hoping that others will step in and make it available.

      Totally agree. I also loved the fact that there were more oatmeal packets which brought the price down. Over a year ago Cosco had a type of turtle candy made with macadamia nuts. It was flying off the shelf. Costco stopped carrying it. Then months later they came out with their own vesion of the candy minus the macadamia nuts.(Kirkland brand)I wonder if Kirkland will come out with their own version of the oatmeal? The supervisor at Cosco told the that they discontinued it because it sold out too quickly and it was hard to keep it stocked. WHAT??? That doesn’t make sense. Let’s see if they start having somme sort of pre-made oatmeal like Good Food Made Simple has,

        Okay….crazy as it seems I just called my Costco and they told me it w…IN…but was listed as possibly discontinued. You all call your local Costco, and see if it’s now in stock. I think I will buy as much as my freezer will hold. lol

    I love this oatmeal! I’m so mad that Costco stopped carrying this item. Where can I buy it now?

    Here in Tampa, Florida at least, Publix Supermarkets have started carrying the entire line of Good Food Made Simple, and while it is much more expensive at Publix and the package contains only two portions vs six from Costco, at least it is available in this market once more. Another benefit of the larger quantity packaging is that it saved paper and ink which is good for the earth, but hopefully, one of the warehouse clubs will eventually restart or begin to carry this brand again.

    The Costco I work at here in the Chicago area(Schaumburg) carries them. I wonder if anyplace else in the Chicago area carries this product as I have learned not to get too used to anything being at our location. Anyone seen them anywhere else in the Chicagoland area?

    I love the oatmeal, the syrup flavor especially. And just as I got my family hooked, – they love it – our Costco pulled it from their shelf.

    We were looking forward to this product as it was advantageous for our family members with health issues. (Great for adding needed cocoanut oil to.)

    Seeing we’re not the only ones who’d rather not search Publix marts for the small 2 packs. Maybe a writing/email/petition campaign?

    I have been buying your oatmeal at the Costco in Fort Worth, Texas. They are not caring it anymore. Is there anywhere else I can buy it. I have looked at our local HEB. I am hooked!

    I GOT HOOKED ON THE OATMEAL LWITH SYRUP WHILE IN NAPLES FLORIDA THIS SEASON, GETTING IT AT COSTCO. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT WHEN I CAME HOME THIS WEEK TO LANCASTER PA TO FIND THAT OUR COSTCO HAD IT ONCE AND THEN DISCONTINUED IT. I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE KNOWING WHERE I CAN PURCHASE IT AROUND MY AREA. THIS STUFF IS ADDICTIVE, BUT GOOD FOR YOU.

    I also am a convert of this delicious oatmeal and purchased it at Costco. Now that I am hooked, they discontinued the product. I am heartbroken and if I ever find where they sell the 8pack I will buy them out. I hope some store will carry the packs containing more than 2 oatmeals. It is too expensive for me to buy this way.

    I too am so disappointed that my Sam’s Club no longer carries this item. I live in northeast Ohio and used to buy this on a regular basis, but arrived to Sam’s one day to find it gone and replaced with some processed, sugar packed breakfast food. I have yet to find it anywhere else…

    Great marketing plan “Stop selling a good turnover item”. Maybe GFMS should increase it’s marketing staff and get with the program……Sad to say that only 2 of the 4 oatmeal products available @ Publix in Montgomery AL and not at all @ COSTCO. Anyway to buy 8 pkg through the web or direct?
