    As questioned

    Just wonder because Quaker oats are expensive comparing to other house branded ones e.g. Tesco

    Are they taste differently? Different quality? What factors affect the price of oats?

    Oh what do you eat the oat with? just milk or add something else too?
    Mine just with milk

    No one ****ing bit of difference but the price, and perhaps subtle taste difference depending on [lack of] processing, location/source of oats etc. Just get the cheap generic bag.

    I've found the quaker oats to be slightly finer. I guess they charge more for splitting the oats into satchets and adding sugar into them to make them taste bogging.

    Tesco oats are brilliant tho - 35p for 500g if i recall? Brilliant!

    I think the only difference is the packaging and the price. The product is identical.

    If you're on a budget don't buy 'instant' porrdige, buy a bag of porridge oats. It's about £1 for a kilo in Sainsburys, and it takes about 5 minutes to cook on the hob, you can even do it in the microwave in the same time as your 'instant' oats which probably cost 5x the amount.

    Instant oats are for suckers.

    I used to do that Good times! I'd have oats, milk and sultanas.
    Now I soak the oats overnight, cook in the morning and top with honey.
