Oatly Oat Drink is available in Barista Edition, Organic Edition, Chocolate Edition and Orange Mango Edition. Chilled Oatly Oat Drink can be bought Whole, Semi, Skinny, Semi Organic or Chocolate Deluxe. Oatly also produces On The Go and Cooking editions, Oatgurt, as well as several ice cream flavours.
