Uncle Ben's Review and Giveaway

Kristi is the winner - congrats!

Rice has pretty much always been a staple in my house ... quick and easy to make and goes with just about any meal or recipe. Over the past several years as I've tried to make healthier eating choices I've been incorporating more brown rice, pasta, and whole grains in our diet.

Uncle Ben's has now come out with a product to make it even easier - the first and only whole grain rice that looks and tastes like white rice.

It is made with natural ingredients, low in fat and has the familiar taste, texture and cooking time (10 min) of white rice but with the goodness of whole grains.

One serving is a good source of fiber and almost delivers the recommended daily amount of whole grains (contains 45g whole grains per serving.)

Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice comes in 6 plain and flavored varieties: Long Grain, Broccoli Cheddar, Chicken, Taco Style, Sweet Tomato, Garden Vegetable. Some flavored rice products contain wheat in the seasoning and I was happy to see (upon a quick glance at the ingredient list online) no red flags for gluten.

We tried the plain flavor and it does look and taste like white rice. White rice is a little more light and fluffy and the whole grain seemed slightly more dense - but I liked that about it. It made it seem more filling that way. We'll definitely be using more of the Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice in our recipes now.

I have a box of Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice, and an apron, to give away. To enter just leave a comment with which variety you're interested in trying. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you're the winner.

I realize number 1 never wins, but I'd love to try the long grain. I can't wait to find this product in stores.

I think the taco one sounds great too. I love having rice when we make Mexican dishes.
