The Quaker Oats Company is in the process of rolling out its new gluten-free line — Quick 1-Minute Oats, Instant Oatmeal Original and Instant Oatmeal Maple & Brown Sugar.

Leaves are changing. Air is getting crisp. And fall fashion is out in full force. When Shar asked me to be part of its gluten-free S'more Shar campaign this fall, I jumped on the opportunity.
