Rolled oats are different to oatmeal. the rolled oats are the same as porridge oats. Rolled oats are flat and absorb the liquid very quickly. Rolled oats are just crushed roughly like a rough flour, although my sister in law (a scottish lass) uses these for porridge instead. But she puts salt in it as well, we use sugar. We often pour treacle (syrup) on it as well, but now I'm sophisticated I prefer Maple syrup (the best ever export from North America) Lollys are just sweet things, always on a stick, over here.
