Rude Health- We Were Robbed!

we were robbed!

Rude Health might not have won the prized Golden Spurtle but they still make damn good porridge.

This weekend, the small Highlands village of Carrbridge was overrun with avid porridge fanatics as they competed for the prized Golden Spurtle in the 16th annual World Porridge-Making Championships.

Amongst them was Rude Health, determined to show the Scots that they know exactly what to do with their oats in the morning. Rude Health’s up-for-anything founder Camilla Barnard took on the challenge.

The traditional oatmeal round was tough, won by a hard-core Yank - the Scots were robbed too! Rude Health’s ‘speciality’ entry, a delectable blend of creamy porridge with maple flambéed bananas and brulée top (with Camilla’s top secret ingredient) looked like a winner but alas, it wasn’t to be.

Nevertheless, Rude Health still makes damngood porridge; in fact their Fruity Date organic porridge is award-winning in its own right!A seductive blend of dates, apricots and apple with a hint of cinnamon, Fruity Date is nowavailable in Tesco stores. Alongside it sits Top Banana organic porridge, a delicious quickand easy version of Camilla’s World Championship attempt. So this winter the wholenation will be able to enjoy breakfasts from these‘world-class’ porridge makers.

And it’s World Porridge Day! This international day was founded by the organisers of the World Porridge Making Championships and Mary’s Meals, a charity which works to providea daily meal for school children growing up inpoverty. To celebrate, Rude Health is delightedto send you this pack of Top Banana porridge and a spurtle of your very own.
