Review from Tilda Ltd

We eat a lot of rice in my family and I quite like this brand to be honest.I used this rice to accompany a chicken tikka curry I made and it went beautifully together.Love the fact it’s whole grain so even better for you :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Review from Tilda Ltd

Really enjoy these, easy and quick to use, was worried that the rice would be stuck together in clumps coming out the bag but that was not the case, I would highly recommend these for others to give a try [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Not for me

2 stars

Review from Tilda Ltd

This product doesn’t taste or feel like rice. It is not what I was expected. I could not eat the whole portion. I will not be buying it again. This could need an acquired taste. Or some getting use to [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Not great

2 stars

Review from Tilda Ltd

I love rice but was not impressed with this wholegrain rice. I actually can cook rice very well myself but this is okay for people in a rush or who cannot cook rice. I would not recommend to anyone. This is nice if mixed with vegetable on the stove. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Tilda rice

5 stars

Review from Tilda Ltd

I always use tilda rice as it's so convenient and quick after you've finished work for dinner. Really tasty and a great price. I will continue to use tilda. The packaging and size of the product is good but it would be good if it was slightly bigger by another 30 or 40g. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Quick & easy but slightly mushy

4 stars

Review from Tilda Ltd

If time is tight at mealtimes this is absolutely perfect as can be zapped in microwave or boiled on the pan. It was tasty and a healthier alternative to white rice. Only negative is that it came out slightly mushy, but with sauce on top it wasn’t so noticeable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It’s ok
