I chose Uncle Ben's Special Fried Rice as it's great for a quick snack before work if you're running low on time and also if you're feeling a bit lazy you can just pop one packet of these into the microwave for only 90 seconds and bam! You've got a meal that you can eat right out of the packet or quickly pour it into some tupperware to take with you on the go. It's tasty and honestly.. who doesn't like special fried rice?
We like rice at our place, but it's always the home made and cooked in a rice cooker.
I had the opportunity to try this rice for free in return for my honest opinion in the form of a review. This is it!
This rice is a pretty good version of authentic fried rice. For my taste It does need a little additional salt or soy sauce, and I much rather bring it up to taste with my choice of salt, soy or tamari.
It can be heated in the microwave, but I prefer it gently heated in a covered pan on the stove with a few splashes of water.
We had it served with dumplings. Aside from a little extra soy sauce, all I added were some chopped fresh shallots.
It tasted good! I would purchase it again. Recommended!

Its has a similar texture and consistency to normal rice, and is very nice. I feared it would be too salty but this was not the case. The chicken flavor could have been a bit stronger as this was very mild, however would be great as a meal by itself or as a side dish.

If you were eating it by itself, each 250g packet would probably only serve one but if you eat it with some protein and additional vegetables, then it would definitely serve 2. It tastes great and is pretty healthy too!
[VINE CUSTOMER REVIEW OF FREE PRODUCT. Find out more: https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/vine/help] I recently tried these and was pleasantly surprised. The flavour isn’t too strong as many of these meals in a packet can be, but instead was subtle and.not over the top. Also great that it wasn’t too salty, not too dry. Recommended.
