1 stars

This used to be good, but has completely changed. Smaller grains, overcooked and clumpy, no yellow colour, woefully under-seasoned, so bland. Just horrid, revolting. I have one left in the cupboard, but it's going in the compost bin.

Yummy and ready in seconds

5 stars

Excellent buy! Ready in seconds. Fluffy and each grain separate. Really good flavour.

Now overcooked and stodgy

2 stars

Not sure what has happened to Tesco home brand rice. Used to be very good but now overcooked and stodgy. I will leave it alone for a while.


5 stars

It has a lovely scented taste ideal with chicken or pork especially when using a sauce

Jury still out on these could do with more spice

Jury still out on these could do with more spice for me but a good stand by

Soft and squidgy. Yuk!

1 stars

What happened? This, along with the other Tesco microwave rice products, used to be very nice with a bit of "bite". Now they are overcooked and squidgy. Quite unpleasant. I won't be buying any more and, unless you like overcooked rice, I suggest you don't either.

Best quick Pilau on a budget
