Loved this as a kid and now my son loves it. Cooks easy in an instant pot too - just reduce the water to 1.5 cups and use the rice button

Great price compared to Frys/Kroger. This rice is easy to make, needing only a tablespoon of butter or olive oil and water, and tastes delicious - my six year old is always happy when it's part of dinner. As a mom, I'm happy there isn't anything startling in the ingredients.

It’s an easy dish to prepare when you have no time, energy, or thoughts running through your brain. Also maybe slightly healthier than a bowl of ramen or Mac and cheese or something (or maybe it’s just wishful thinking). Anyway, it gets the job done.

Was not expecting this to be as delicious as it was but man it’s a 10/10. Most boxed rices are either toooo salty or bland but this one was perfection. Made it in my rice cooker in a few minutes. Highly recommend

GOOD to keep on hand!

5 out of 5 stars
LAPrincipal - 3 years ago
This rice mix is a blessing to keep on hand for the MANY times that I need to fix a fast side dish. It is delicious, and very important, it is a non-gmo product. Seasoned just right, unlike my homemade that always gets “not enough this or that”; or, “too much this or that”.
