More than a half million flavors were submitted since Quaker launched the contest last December.
From this point, America will decide which flavor wins. From now, through November 19, 2016, fans can vote for their favorite flavor at Bring Your Best Bowl or by using the following hashtags on Twitter: #VoteAppleCheddarRosemary, #VoteLemonRicottaPancake, #VoteVanillaChai.
The grand prize winner will be announced next February and will be awarded $250,000, along with the chance to have their oatmeal creation to hit store shelves for a limited time.
Here’s the Flavor Inspirations from the Finalists:
- Apple Cheddar Rosemary, Karen D. (Boston, Mass.) –”The savory tastes of my rosemary, cheddar and apple flatbread reinvented into oatmeal after my boyfriend had surgery and couldn’t eat crispy foods.”
- Lemon Ricotta Pancake, Maria A. (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) – “I’m Italian and I love ricotta cheese; after looking up recipes that included ricotta cheese, I found an amazing recipe for Lemon Ricotta Pancakes that inspired me.”
- Vanilla Chai, Heather K. (Redondo Beach, Calif.) – “My husband’s family is from India and I have fallen in love with Chai Tea with a hint of vanilla for breakfast. Why not in my oatmeal as well?”
