The New York Times recently wrote a cheeky opinion about McDonald’s latest offering: oatmeal or "a bowl full of wholesome".
In accordance with the company’s propensity to take every food item it offers and turn it into fatty mush, they haven’t made oatmeal for you, they’ve made a bowl full of calories and sugar that resembles oatmeal.
Here’s a snippet from the NYT:
“Cream” (which contains seven ingredients, two of them actual dairy) is automatically added; brown sugar is ostensibly optional, but it’s also added routinely unless a customer specifically requests otherwise. There are also diced apples, dried cranberries and raisins, the least processed of the ingredients (even the oatmeal contains seven ingredients, including “natural flavor”).
