“ Type: Yoghurt „
When I'm in the mood for something, I simply must have it and these delicious pots of rice pudding are ideal for that creamy dessert/snack fix and often find themselves in my trolley during my food shop! ~ Price & Availability ~ Muller Rice apple (and other flavours) are available to buy in more or less any big supermarket. They are available to buy in a variety of flavours such as original, apple (the one I'm reviewing today), raspberry (my favourite!), banana & toffee, vanilla custard and strawberry. They can be bought as single pots or in multipacks of six. The price varies slightly depending on where you shop, they are around 60p for a single 190g pot or can be found on offer in Asda and Sainsbury's for any 6 for £3.00, or even better 10 for £3.00 at tesco's (exceptional value!) The multipacks of six are priced around £3.59 or can be found in most stores on offer at 2 for £5.00. You can also now buy 'mini' muller rice in raspberry and apple at around £1.50 for a multipack of four or 3 packs for £3.00. The beauty of these is that you can nearly always find them on offer! ~ Packaging ~ Muller rice multipacks come in a cardboard tray with six holes that hold your rice's nicely in place and are then wrapped in thin cellophane. Obviously the single pots don't come in a tray and aren't wrapped; they are nice simple plastic pots, different to the ones Dooyoo are showing though. The pots are now white, with a blue strip across the middle and a blue foil lid - nothing too special. Depending on which flavour you have there is a picture relating to that particular flavour on the lid, so in this instance there a lovely, juicy looking apple sitting on a bed of creamy rice pudding! On top of this there is a use buy date. The lid clearly tells me that this is a muller product with its eye catching red label. Around the pot there is a banner telling me this flavour is apple as well as various bits of nutritional information, storage advice and ingredients. ~ Taste test! ~ Frankly, I can never wait to dive into these pots of pure pleasure! Peeling back the lid there isn't really much of a smell, perhaps a slight hint of apple but nothing too present. I like to eat a little bit of the creamy rice on it's own first before I dive into the apple compote at the bottom of the pot so I get a full advantage of the flavours separate and together. The rice is utterly gorgeous! It's sooooooo creamy and mouth-wateringly tasty; for me it's definitely the best rice pudding out there. The apple at the bottom is equally nice with chunks of apple mixed into sort of an apple sauce, very tart and goes well with the rice pudding. There are so many different textures to this snack, smooth, chunky, creamy...HEAVEN! I think one 190g pot is definitely enough, they are quite large but I can easily demolish one for a snack or as a dessert. For the price they are a pretty decent size! Nicely filling without being too stodgy. ~ Other information ~ 100g of this particular muller rice contains 108 calories (205 calories per 190g pot), which is pretty high but like I said they are filling and very tasty so totally worth it! The great thing about these is that they are LOW FAT! I hear all you ladies screaming out there! And maybe some men? They only contain 4.4g, which considering this is practically pure milk and cream that's pretty good eh? Each pot also contains 24.7g of sugar (eek :D not so good), but it is a dessert after all so there has to be some sort of shortfall. This product is suitable for vegetarians and contains milk and eggs. Muller rice can be eaten hot or cold ~ Overall verdict ~ I absolutely love these pots of rice, as you may have guessed by now. I would definitely recommend them to anybody who likes a good creamy, filling snack or dessert or is watching their fat intake. I have also tried the raspberry flavour muller rice and It's my favourite one of the two but they are both divine so It's a good job they come in a multi-pack together so I don't have to choose! I've yet to try the other flavours but I strongly suggest you giving them a try particularly the toffee or custard one if you're not such a fan of fruit.
A muller rice is basically rice pudding, in a pot. It is also super yummy, and worth every penny. The price is not that high either, with 40p being a common selling price. Strangely I find that apple is my favourite flavour of Muller rice, second only to toffee apple but I think that was a special version of the apple flavour for hallow. I definitely believe that it is worth warming a Muller rice up, as I think they taste even better when warm. About a minute in the microwave is normally best. A apple muller rice can be eaten as either a snack or for lunch or breakfast, I personally like to start the day with one as they taste much better than bland cereals and other options. Thankfully not only is the muller rice a delicious food but it is also good for you, the pots include a good amount of calcium.
Muller Rice is a range of dessert type products. Flavours include strawberry, original, toffee and a few others. ~Apple~ One flavour available is the Muller Rice Apple which is described as "creamy dairy rice with apple". This dessert snack is suitable for vegetarians and can be eaten cold or heated up in the microwave (without the foil) for 70seconds. Muller Rice Apple is a low fat dessert as it contains 205calories, 24.7g of sugar and 2.5g of saturated fat per 190g pot. It should be stored in the fridge prior to eating. The rice is held within a round plastic pot with a foil lid. The Apple version can be identified by its blue and green design. I won't copy across the full ingredients list but it is worth noting that this each pot offers 7% rice, 4% apple and 2.5% apple juice from concentrate. Also included is milk and sugar. One pot offers 21% of your daily calcium allowance. ~Price~ Muller Rice Apple can be purchased in various supermarkets and a 190g pot is priced around the 60p mark. Offers are often on in the larger supermarkets such as Asda/Tesco where you can purchase 6 or 7 pots for a reduced price. This flavour is also available as a multi pack with raspberry. ~My Thoughts~ I have a sweet tooth and try to avoid buying too many desserts though I love Muller Rice and tend to stock up when they are on offer. They keep well in the fridge so I have something dessert like if I fancy it. They make a pleasant change from a standard yoghurt and I feel are ideal as an after dinner or breakfast snack so they are versatile. I do love the strawberry and original flavours but often buy the apple flavour hence my review. The packaging keeps the contents fresh and on opening, the pot is almost full to the top with creamy, thick pieces of dessert rice. I usually eat this flavour cold though heat up, it makes a delicious Wintery sweet treat. Each pot is very substantial and filling. I find the apple flavour needs a good stir up at first to blend the rice and apple together. It is a little watery compared to other flavours. ~Fresh and Creamy~ When mixed up well, this apple rice tastes yummy. I do love the creaminess offered by many of the Muller Rice flavours though due to the apple juice content, the rice is a little moister in taste and consistency. The rice pieces are quite firm yet soft enough to chew slightly then swallow. There is plenty of juicy flavouring from the apple which tastes fresh and light. Unlike the other flavours, there is lots of fruit pieces mixed through the rice. The apple pieces are quite big and very easy to chew due to the softness of them. They taste very natural, sweet and add a lovely chunky consistency to the rice. The rice is fairly creamy and overall the dessert is full of flavour but does leave a slight bitter aftertaste. ~Conclusion~ Muller Rice Apple may be expensive but it is very filling and tasty. It isn't my favourite flavour but nice as a change and to me, it resembles rice with a chunky apple sauce so really is something a bit different. Quite high in sugar and calories for what it is so one to have in moderation. I recommend this as a dessert or snack and thank you for reading :)
I absolutely love rice pudding but I always prefer to eat it once it has been heated and then sometimes add strawberry jam. Muller is a famous manufacturer of chilled desserts and the producer of one of my favourite items to take from the dairy section of a supermarket, the Muller Rice. Sold in a plastic pot these rice desserts can be eaten cold or heated in the microwave but I have never tried one hot and unlike the rice pudding from a tin I mentioned previously I do prefer these cold. There are several flavours you can purchase but the one I have eaten the most is the apple variety. It is basically very similar in appearance to yoghurt and to get at the good stuff you simply pull back the foil cover which can be recycled and then eat it with a spoon. The rice is creamy and beautifully cold especially nice if you are eating after some time has passed of it being stored in a fridge. When you explore the pot with your spoon you will find nearer the bottom small pieces of apple in sauce which is extremely tasty and contrasts with the creamy rice superbly, it really is refreshing. This is free from artificial colours and preservatives and nutritionally is not too bad at all with a 190g pot containing less than 220 calories and less than 7g of fat. These are ideal to eat as a dessert after lunch but I really just enjoy them anytime. It is funny because every time someone mentions the singer Damien Rice to me or I hear one of his songs I really get a hankering for one of these. They retail at around sixty pence individually but are often on promotion in multi buys depending on which supermarket or store you frequent.
I always buy these as puddings for the week either for work or after the evening meal. I have to buy the mixed packs so there are some strawberry or raspberry for my husband, but my favourite is the apple. I love rice pudding anyway, but the addition of the soft apple compte to the rice is genius. They are great as fillers when you want something to eat and are not quite sure what you want. They are low fat, although they are probably still high on the sugar side, but if it is a choice between this and chocolate this has got to be more healthy and it does have some fruit in it. Just checked the sugar and this is high 13g per 100 g and each pot is 190g so nearly 26 g sugar, but the fat is just 2.3 g per 100g so for the pot is less than 5g. I prefer them cold, but you can heat them up. Some people may prefer a little more spicyness to the apple compote, but this can be done by adding a little cinnamon if needed. For me they are prefect as they are. They are always on offer somewhere, so they are very reasonable, especially when compared to what you can pay for cheesecakes and other deserts from the supermarkets. I suppose the main disadvantage is the amount of sugar. It could do with being reduced down. I think they could get away with half the amount. The advantages are the portability of the snack and the low fat and the yummy taste.
Getting a little bored of my usual yogurts that I indulge in most days I recently spotted these little pots of rice with a variety of sauces within them and decided to give them a whirl. I do like rice pudding so couldn't wait to get stuck into a pot of these! The Packaging: The pot is plastic and white and green in colourscheme and the lid is foil, peel back and has a picture of apples on it. On the foil lid and on the front and the back of the pot we are told that it is Muller Apple Rice 'Creamy dairy rice with apple'. Other information listed on the pot includes the ingredients used, there is a full nutritional chart listed, the size is given (which in this case is 190g), we are told that it can be eaten hot or cold (you can heat this in the microwave for 70 seconds if you want to) and contact details for Muller Dairy are given. Its a nice enough, informative pot this. The Rice Itself: What you get it lots of well cooked creamy coloured and looking rice that is naturally sweetened and sweet enough. You get a swirl of apple sauce you can stir well into the rice and so get a rice pudding that is really nice with a hint of apple sauce flavouring which is really natural in flavour. I couldn't find any lumps of fruit within this at all but there was no mistaking it was apple in flavour and all in all I really enjoyed this cold though it isn't my favorite flavour from within the range so far...its nice enough and is a nice rice pud that isn't sloppy. I like the way its all very creamy, quite feeling and of good quality! Nutritional Information Per Pot (The Important Bits!): Energy: 108Kcal Fat: 2.3g of which saturates: 1.3g Available in all good supermarkets costing about 54p a pot and in a variety of flavours.
==The product:== Over the past few weeks I have tried various Muller Rice products. They have been on offer at my supermarket and it seemed a good opportunity to try them. The Apple rice currently costs 54p for a 190g pot, which is in truth quite expensive when compared with the unbranded shops own products. The Muller Rice product range is quite diverse and includes Strawberry, Raspberry, Blueberry, Original, Toffee, Vanilla Custard and Apple. I must admit I was intrigued by this product and optimistic that it would be good as I like Rice Pudding and love apples the fusion of the two surely couldn't be a bad thing. I was impressed with the look of the product, it was easily identifiable on the supermarket shelf. It comes in a green coloured pot, that looks effective and well designed with an apple picture on the top. It certainly looked appealing with a proud sign that this product had no artificial colours or preservatives and it is low in fat. ==Nutritional Information:== Per 100g Calories: 108 Protein: 3.2g Carbohydrates: 18.6g Of which sugars: 13.0g Fat: 2.3g Of which Saturates: 1.3g Fibre: 0.4g Sodium: 0.1g Calcium: 91mg ==Taste:== The product needs to be chilled so mine came straight from the fridge. It has a lid that is easy to pull off and impressively it came off in one and without any problems. Once open I could immediately smell the apples and the rice, it smelt good and I could even see some chunks of apple amongst the rice. It was filled to about 2cm for the top but despite this I still needed to lick the lid as it had spilt on there sometime during transit. My first impression when I had my first mouthful was where had the apples gone? As I tasted a rich and creamy rice but only the a vague sense of apples. So I gave the rice a good stir to make sure all the apple hadn't gone to the bottom but didn't notice any appreciable change in the product, if anything the texture seemed more consistent. My next impression was more favourable and I enjoyed the mixture between the apple and the rice. It was rich and full flavour, I liked the taste and more than enough apple within the rice but with no crunchy apple taste. I even expected to see an apple pip but was happy not the case. Overall the taste matched my expectations and I really enjoyed the rich rice with a sharp apple flavour. The rice tasted sweet and appealing and I particularly like the fact you can see the bits of rice within it and I got the distinct impression it was a good quality rice and that a lot of time and effort had gone into the fusion between the different ingredients. ==My thoughts on the product:== Despite my initial disappointment with the price of the product, I was impressed with the way the product was displayed. It was in the chilled section and I soon discovered its shelf life was quite short. Mine had 2 weeks but others in the range I bought had 4 weeks to consume. You can eat this product either hot or cold. The instructions where written on the side of the pot on how to Microwave it. It seemed very simple and after 70 seconds it would be ready. I did not try this as I choose to eat it direct from the fridge. I found the product needed to be stirred to make sure the apple and rice were correctly mixed up and the consistency looked for appealing once I had done this too. Taste wise it was lovely, I liked the creamy milky sauce which reminded me of the traditional rice pudding and the way it fused with a strong tangy apple flavour. As I continued to enjoy it I noticed the odd chunk of apple which you even had to crunch a little. The mixture tasted wonderful and I found a pot was enough of a snack to keep me going for several hours. I particularly like this range because these pots are versatile. For example they could be used as a pudding, as a snack, a picnic or in a Lunch box. For me I found it a filling snack and a lovely change from the usual chocolate snack, so it helped me to feel that this indulgence was not all bad and far better for me than the usual chocolate I enjoy. And while being positive this pot contains 21% of the recommended daily amount of Calcium. For my perspective I am very pleased I tried this product and for me the Apple is the best tasting variety I have tried so far. It just oozes quality and I love that apple taste. I think I will be buying this again, but probably as a treat as apposed to part of my regular weekly shop. This product is suitable for vegetarians. For more information about the Muller range go to: www.mullerdairy.co.uk ==Conclusion:== This was a really high quality product and as such I really enjoyed the taste of it. It was a very pleasing flavour and I will be purchasing this again and would recommend it as an enjoyable snack. The only advice I would give is give the product a good stir before your eat it as it both looks and has greater consistency when this is done. Thanks for reading. © CPTDANIELS November 2010
Muller Rice seems to have been on various offers in most of the big supermarkets over the last few weeks, so I have had a good chance to try all the flavours at a bargain price. I think the apple one was the best so decided to review it. What is it? ******** Muller rice is a range of ready to eat deserts containing rice pudding and a choice of flavours including custard, plain, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and apple, it can be eaten cold or you can heat it up. It come in a 190g plastic pot similar to a large yogurt pot with a foil lid, the pot has the Muller red logo and informs you in large letters and a green design that this is the apple variety. Peel off the foil lid and the rice is revealed, dig your spoon in and you will find a nice amount of apple in sauce at the bottom of the tub. My Opinion ********* When you open a Muller rice it looks like you just have a plain old pot of rice pud, but dig your spoon in and taste it and you will be suprised how creamy this light and fluffy rice is, but when you go beyond the rice and dig down deep to the generous portion of apple/sauce you will be even more surprised, this smallish pot packs a big punch and the creamy rice and tangy apple mix perfect and make a very tasty and satisfying treat or desert, I have had these in my lunch box every day,I love'em! More Info ******** Priced around 40p each but lots of BOGOF/Half price offers in the big supermarkets.

You'd think I would have learned by now, that if I wish to stay within a budget, I wouldn't sent my husband to the supermarket. Unfortunately this weekend I needed some rolls and as he was going out I asked him to pick some up. Thankfully he did come back with the rolls, but he also managed to pick up some Muller Rice, which happened to be on special offer. I do really enjoy these rice pots and used to buy them on a regular basis. As my shopping bill rose to scary heights, I stopped buying all the unnecessary treats. Muller Rice come in plastic pots, wth a foil lid. They come in a variety of colours, depending on the contents and the one I chose contained apple. This pot was therefore in green and white with a close-up shot of apples and creamy rice. Peeling back the foil, the first thing you notice is the sweet creamy smell of the rice, which is instanstly recogniseable. You can also smell the apple, but this is more subtle. This snack does look very appetising as the apple chunks and sauce are swirled into the rice, which adds to the attraction. I like to scoop up some rice and apple together, as it is far tastier when these flavours are mixed together. The rice is very thick, rich and creamy and although lovely on it's own, can be a little boring after a few spoonfuls. It is very soft and requires no effort to eat, so is great if you are feeling under the weather or in need of comfort food. The chunks of apple are small, but full of flavour. They are also quite soft but still add a little bite to the snack. There is also an apple sauce, which is deliciously sweet and adds lots of lovely appley flavour to the rice. This snack can be heated in the microwave, if you fancy it warm. I personally prefer mine cold, straight from the fridge. *Nutritional Value Per 190g Pot* Energy - 108kcal Protein - 3.2g Carbohydrate - 18.6g of which sugars - 13.0g Fat - 2.3g of which saturates - 1.3g Fibre - 0.4g Sodium - 0.1g Calcium - 91mg This product contains eggs and milk. It is free from artificial colours and preservatives and is suitable for vegetarians. Muller Rice 190g Pots are available from Tesco for 52p but are on special until 18th May at 4 for £2, which in my opinion is quite a pathetic special offer! I have no plans to start buying these again. They do taste lovely, but they are not worth the money. If you are not on a strict budget and do want a tasty treat, then they are well worth trying. I would give them 5 stars for yummyness, but have to deduct a star due to the high price.
This is undoubtedly the best flavour that Muller make for the Rice range. Currently most superstores have these selling at 4 for £2, which is a bargain! As a 100 calorie snack they are great for people on the go, for lunches or a sneaky one just before bed. I prefer Muller-Rice cold, but have often had it warm during the winter months to warm up directly to your core! The apple chunks are in a lovely apple juice which most of the time stay separate from the creamy rice, meaning if you have a way of eating it like I do then it is possible! (I am not a mixer, I eat the creamy rice first and then the apple chunks and juice later!) If you do want to microwave them, then make sure you remove the foil lid and set it on 45 seconds if you have an 800 watt model as I found it can make it super hot and the plastic very malleable, which isn't the best thing when you have to hold it and the contents in your hand! The 190g pots make them easy to carry around in a lunchbox, or for women in your handbags. This product is also suitable for Vegetarians, so get stuck in!
This version of Muller Rice is lovely. I've never had this heated whereas i've tried the others in the range warm, but I think this one is best when just out the fridge and nice and cold. This is found in the chiller section next to all the other potted desserts like this. They cost around 50p each, but there is sometimes some kind of offer on these. You get them in a smaller sized pot as well, but don't think this flavour is covered in the smaller pot which is a shame. The round plastic tubs are alright. Mainly white in colour and with all the information writted around the side. There is a thin foil lid on the top. Each tub is 150g and has about 180 calories in it. This is just made up of some Creamy Rice. the Rice seems large and thick enough and the Creamy coating for it is Creamy and Milky. Thastes nice even without the Apple bit in it. The Apple part is in the middle of the dessert. There doesn't seem like there is that much Apple, but there is some Chunks and the Syrup with it as well. You can just eat this out the middle along with the Rice part, or I like to mix the Apple bit through the plain Rice. The Apple makes this a bit more tangy and it has a nice brambly taste to it. It is refreshing and just a nice healthy tasting dessert, although it isn't that good for you. Nice dessert that is a change from a Chocolate one.
I was tempted by these yesterday when shopping in Tesco as they were on sale for £2 for 4 good-sized pots & I fancied something a little more substantial than regular yoghurty-type fruit desserts. They are as shown in the picture & come in a fairly sturdy plastic pot with a foil lid which (unlike some) is easy to remove. An individual pot weighs 220g, contains 220 calories & 4.4g of fat. I noticed that Tesco were also selling mini pots of these which I think would be ideal for children's lunch boxes as these larger ones may be a bit too filling for little tummies? When I peeled back the lid I found the apple bits had collected around the edges & I have to say I was a lttle dubious but after a stir they mixed well with the creamy rice & the texture was nice & thick & a lovely colour. The taste was great - sweet but not overly so - a good taste of apples & a creamy rice-pudding which was very filling. I'd have to say it was a little on the synthetic side though & if you were making this using fresh ingredients it would taste very different. However, for the convenience & overall texture & taste I'd recommend giving this a try. I tried a pot cold plus another heated (in the microwave for 35 seconds) & I enjoyed them both equally. summary ~ - convenient - filling - tasty - nice texture - not too bad healthwise - makes a nice change from other desserts.
Muller rice is a yummy, tasty snack - perfect for any time of the day and especially good if you're on a diet! Basically, you can find them in any good supermarket mingled amongst the yoghurts on the shelves. They come in a variety of flavours - but my favourite is apple. The pots are quite a good size (220g) with a foil lid on. Underneath, there is a delicious helping of thick and creamy rice pudding, piled on top of chunky pieces of apple in a sweet apple sauce. You can eat them hot or cold - I prefer them cold, but if you want them warm you just need to make sure you remove all of the foil on the lid and ping them in the microwave for 60 seconds. They are so tasty to eat, yet nutritionally very good! Each pot has on average 112 calories and 2.2g of fat, making them a dieters dream. I find them especially good if im on a diet and am in too much of a rush to have a proper breakfast - if I don't eat properly then im starving and tucking into a chocolate bar by 11am, but a muller rice really does fill me up until lunch and makes sure I stick to my diet. Or if im having a sweet craving after dinner - they make a good dessert. They do tons of other flavours - original, raspberry, blueberry, toffee, custard - so if the apple doesn't appeal to you then im sure you will find one variety that you like! There usually on 4 for £2 in tesco so you can give them all a try! Lovely, healthy treat that doesn't make you feel like your dieting!
I like tasty savoury snacks, in the evening if my dinner does not quite fill me up. I spotted these on special offer in Tesco and bought one of the apple flavoured ones, and one of the strawberry flavoured ones to test out. Unfortunately for the apple flavour, it definitely lost in the battle to the strawberry version. The rice puddings come in yoghurt style packaging. They come in a round plastic tub with a peel off foil lid. The packaging is white and green to represent the apple flavour added to the pudding. The pudding states on the front that it contains over 200 calories, so I was hoping that it would do a good job of filling me up. The lid peels off easily to give way to a rather odd looking pudding. The pudding is mainly creamy based with the addition of plenty of rice. It then has swirls of apple round the outside. With the strawberry version the sauce is such a different colour to the main pudding that it is easily distinguishable. With the apple version the sauce is only just slightly a different colour to the main pudding, so my first thoughts were that it had gone off, curdled or separated, which even when I realized it wasn't quite true, it put me off quite a bit. I mixed the pudding up and persuaded myself to try it anyway. The rice and cream part was good, it tasted creamy and thick, just like good old fashioned rice pudding. Unfortunately the apple part didn't really add anything to the flavour, in my opinion it just took away from it. I normally like apple flavoured things, but for some reason I just didn't feel like this went. Overall I wouldn't buy this pudding again. I liked the rice pudding part, it was nice and creamy, but I didn't like the apple flavour, so I will stick to the flavours I like more.
In a vain attempt to reduce my calorie consumption and lead an even healthier lifestyle I have been looking for a range of desserts that, were low in calories but high in taste. Muller produce a wide range of desserts and treats and the apple Muller rice had been recommended to me by a friend who had discovered them when they were on special offer in Tescos. The pots boast that they are low in fat, but as a rule I always read the labels carefully. I was quite shocked to see that the second ingredient in the pot was sugar, although this probably explains why I enjoyed it so much. It is always important to check the sugar content of low fat foods and I would always recommend that you do this prior to purchasing. I had a 200g pot as an evening meal treat and decided to have it straight from the fridge. You can eat these hot and they are ideal to put into a microwave for 30-45 seconds (although remember to take off the metallic lid to avoid sparks!). The first thing you notice when you open the pot is the strong smell of the rice and the gelatinous looking apple in the middle. It looks and smells like the apple pie fillings you get in the bakery. The rice is delicious and thick and creamy, the pot is full almost to the top and you can see why this would be a popular choice of treat for someone with a big appetite, the apple, although this does not look appealing is actually very tasty, if not a little sweet. I mixed the two together and gave it a good old stir before eating it. From a tablespoon I managed to get a good ten full spoons from one pot. The texture was very pleasant and not unlike a tin of riced pudding. It did not feel too sticky or 'gungy' and the apple blended in well with the rice. Taste wise it was well balanced and not too sweet, well not as sweet as I thought it would be. Each pot contains 220 calories. this is quite a lot, but it does have the benefit of being very filling. I quite often have desserts that leave me wanting more after one or two helpings! This pudding was filling and left me feeling quite satisfied. The labelling is misleading at first as it only gives the calories for 100g...as if you would choose to eat just half a pot! I think this dessert is an ideal one for those who lead usy and hectic days as it fills the need for a sweet tooth and also, provides a filling treat. It would be particularly good for a child's lunchbox as it is so filling and sweet too! Would I be persuaded to buy these again? yes I would. IOverall I enjoyed the taste and when I got away from the initial 'yuk' of what it looked like on opening the pot, I discovered a nice dessert that I would enjoy having in my fridge. I am yet to give it a go hot, but am sure it would be just as tasty! They are available in individual pots and also in variety packs in the supermarkets. They are often on special offer so it is well worth keeping an eye out for them.
Creamy dairy rice with apple sauce.
