Find it quite bizarre that the only two reviews thought this rice to be rubbish. Loved it! Especially mixed in with roast veg.
Sorry Yuk Review, You Were Right!
I'm writing this to apologise to the "yuk" review before mine. I am very sorry that I didn't take your words to heart. In fact, I dismissed the review as one point of view which probably didn't match mine. I thought, "sure, microwavable rice is never going to match the experience of a fresh bowl of coconut rice from a Thai restaurant, but Tilda couldn't have done that badly could they?". Well, tonight was the night that I eagerly tried it. The result? Let's just say I can think of no better way to describe the flavour than "yuk". I was initially taken aback after opening the packet by the strong smell of soap. Where was the soap? Oh no, it's not soap, it's the rice. No bother, I'm sure the flavours will blend in nicely once it's cooked. Two minutes later, it comes out of the microwave smelling of.....warm soap. And guess what it tasted like? You've got it, warm soap. Yuk indeed!
Awful, what is that flavour? I'm sure I've had jasmine rice before and nothing like this. Horrid.
