Frequently Asked Questions


Why is this more expensive than a regular oatmeal?

To make a bowl of oatmeal with all the ingredients we include you’d probably pay two times as much as what one container of Spoonful costs. We also take the time to make sure all of our ingredients are sourced from quality suppliers and manufacturers to live up to our "No Prep. Always Fresh™️" philosophy. Lastly, we want to do good for you while doing good for the planet and you the breakfast you deserve in an infinitely compostable package instead of conventional plastic.

What is the shelf-life of Spoonful?

Spoonful has a shelf life of 2 months upon manufacturing. Typically, the product will arrive with a 5-to-6-week shelf life due to time lost in transit.

What are ready-to-eat oats?

Ready-to-eat oats are different than traditional oatmeal in that they are never cooked. At Spoonful, we soak old fashioned oats in almond, coconut, or oat milk. The resulting product is just as easy to digest as traditional oatmeal but is more nutrient dense. We haven't cooked off the vitamins and minerals. No need to heat, just eat!
