I love rice. I add this side dish to my meal plans often. I like to eat a wide variety of flavors and types of rice. Recently, I spotted Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Ready Rice in the rice section of my local grocery store. I decided to purchase this product, try it and write a product review about it. Here is what I discovered!
Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Ready Rice is affordable. It is not exactly a great bargain but, for an easy and quick prepare side dish, it is not too expensive. I purchased a bag of this ready rice for under two dollars. Just barely. Each bag has two servings in it. They can be stretched into three small servings, if needed, I discovered. I usually serve rice, a salad and a meat. Sometimes, potatoes are included. A small serving of this rice goes along nicely with a complete meal. Add rolls, biscuits or toast and you have a great and interesting meal. I really like the Uncle Ben’s ready rice line. It gives me quite a wide variety of rice flavor choices to match almost any meal.
Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Ready Rice is so very easy to prepare. It comes in a microwave safe bag. You simply squeeze the bag before heating it, to separate the rice. Tear open the marked part of the top of the bag a bit, to vent. Pop the bag into the microwave for ninety seconds. Remove by grabbing the cool touch spot marked on the top side of the bag. This cool spot is provided so that you do not burn your fingers while removing and it works well! I absolutely love the design of this new food product. Ready rice is ready in ninety seconds. It is cholesterol free rice. Fantastic! It also has only three grams of fat.
Now, some of the flavors of Uncle Ben’s ready rice I have tried are OK. They were a bit dry and some, I found were bland.

I discovered why this rice is so delicious and special tasting. It has twenty-three herbs and seasonings in it. Wow.
