Quaker gives the nation a chance to win £10,000 each week for 10 weeks with new #ShowUsYourOats competition

Champion of the mighty breakfast oat, Quaker, has teamed up with influential food stylist and chef Anna Jones to pick a member of the UK public to win £10,000 every week, during its new 10 week-long #ShowUsYourOats competition. Together they are challenging the nation to show off their finest breakfast creations – using Quaker’s versatile oat as their culinary canvas!

The New Year marks a time when we seek out new balance and check back in with what we’re putting in our bodies and breakfast bowls. So what better way to start the year than with a beautifully balanced breakfast creation, that will keep your taste buds singing during the dreary winter months. Launching on the 1st January the #ShowUsYourOats competition is celebrating the tasty and versatile oat by rewarding consumers who invent the most inspiring porridge or overnight oats recipe with an amazing cash prize.

To be in with a chance of winning, the public are invited to get creative and share their ultimate take on the timeless breakfast oat in whatever form they like and using whatever additional ingredients they desire to make their most impressive dish (or bowl!) possible.

Each week one winning recipe will be picked by porridge lover Anna Jones, plus Quaker’s expert panel – sending one lucky consumer home with an unbelievable £10,000. So whether it’s creamy peanut butter offset by sharp raspberry jam finished with a flurry of seeds or exotic mango, topped with a spoonful of coconut yoghurt, and toasted coconut chips for crunch….stir up porridge in 2018 and be in with a chance to win the prize of a lifetime.  

Eric Williams, Quaker Oats Marketing Manager commented: “The Show Us Your Oats competition is all about demonstrating just how amazingly versatile the mighty oat is. We want to encourage people to get creative and share recipes that have been inspired by their passions. Breakfast is such an important part of the day and with Quaker porridge you have the chance to create something that brightens up your morning, as well as potentially being worth £10,000.”
