McCann’s has been making the finest Irish oatmeal for over 150 years. It started with John McCann who built a mill at Beamond on the east coast of Ireland in 1800. Today, all of the oats in McCann’s Irish oatmeal come from the counties of Kildare and Meath in Ireland. This is where the best oats are grown. Choose from McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal, McCann’s Quick and Easy Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal, McCann’s Quick Cooking Irish Oatmeal, or McCann’s Instant Irish Oatmeal. They also make an Artisan Collection of Irish Oatmeal that includes flavors from all around the world. The four flavors are Black Currant, Almond and Cream, Pumpkin Pecan with Vietnamese Cinnamon, Madagascar Vanilla Bean with Honey, and Apple, Cranberry, and Walnut.
