My Take:
I received Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach Oatmeal & Fruit cups for my reviewing purposes.  I was in complete shock when I opened the first container. I couldn't believe it there were actual REAL chunks of fruit inside. Not the typical flakes of what other oatmeals claim to be fruit. After my initial shock passed I placed one of the containers in the microwave and heated it up - just a short 45 seconds and yum it was hot and ready to eat.  The smell was so good when I heated up the Apple Cinnamon you could actually smell the cinnamon.  And flavor, it was full of that too. Nice size pieces of apples as well as good sized pieces of oatmeal.  It wasn't mushy or anything like I thought it might be, it was quite good.  The Vanilla Peach was just as good in my opinion and I'm not usually one to eat peaches, but mixed with the vanilla and oatmeal it had a great flavor.  I shared both flavors with my kids and they actually liked them too. I wasn't sure since they are both used to the other oatmeals that don't have actual fruit bits. I think this is going to be a new staple in our pantry, we are always running into mornings where we are running behind so having something we can pop in the microwave to be ready in less than a minute would be a lifesaver.
