Not including the brown sugar, McDonald's lists 21 ingredients in their breakfast oatmeal.  So....oatmeal, apples, dried cranberries, dried raisins, dried golden raisins, milk, cream, salt.  I guess the rest are preservatives, food enhancers, coloring, emulsifiers.

Sorry about the wacky formatting, but the editor here goes crazy with embedded formatting codes.

Why would anyone expect anything different from McDonalds?  Why would anyone go to McDonalds and expect anything wholesome?
