They do, although Scotts oats are "porage" oats. You'll find it in the cereal section of any food emporium.

In Canada we call oats "porridge".

Red River cereal in more like semolina, or cream of wheat. But not oats

In the UK, porridge is always oats. Semolina is prepared as couscous, or made into pudding and fed to you at primary (elementary) school, although I've never seen anyone eat semolina pudding outside of that environment.

I am born british and lived in Canada.
I always understood oatmeal as being the rolled oats.
Porridge was semolina (or cream of wheat). My Mom usually made it for me in the morning or when I was sick.

I'm an American transplant in Ireland. Trust me. UK porridge (also called porridge oats) = American oatmeal. It's the exact same thing.
