review: Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Ready Rice

Ok, this was not what I was hoping for. Wild rice is like HEAVEN to me. For reals. Favourite food because it's got that chewy-ish outside with the tenderness on the inside, plus the taste is amazing, and it's just right as a side or in stuffing birds 'cause it's not too light and carby, but not too heavy either.

SO! Anyways! This rice only took 90 seconds to heat in the microwave as it comes pre-cooked and preserved in all sorts of jank. It was salty to the point of distraction from the flavour, and the texture was just plain weird and unappealing.

So, go for a different brand of Wild Rice.

The end.
