--------------------------------------------------------


We used to eat a lot of Uncle Ben's rice when we lived in Holland, until we bought a rice cooker that is. Then we started using Thai rice all the time.
After moving to the US, we bought another rice cooker and we're still eating Thai rice.
I was happy to test Uncle Ben's rice again, as it has been so long we tried it.
Thanks to Mom Central, we were able to test out the Uncle Ben's Whole Grain white rice.

Last weekend we made the rice with chicken. It had been so long I actually boiled rice in a pot, but it's super easy and it only takes 10 minutes to boil. Way faster than rice cooker rice.
The Uncle Ben's whole grain white rice has twice the fiber of brown rice! We tried brown rice in the past before and my kids did NOT like it at all. This was one of their questions before we tried this rice: "it's not going to be as bad as the brown rice from the past, is it?"

The rice is very tasty with twice the fiber as brown rice, so we will surely make this again, but next time I need to try it in the rice cooker my son says. He wants it more sticky! So I'll let you know how that goes in the future.

Uncle Ben's has way more flavor selections than just the white rice, there's chicken, broccoli cheddar, taco style and sweet tomato.
Check out Uncle Ben's website for recipes, nutrition facts and super savings!


Two lucky winners will each win 2 boxes of the Uncle Ben's whole grain white rice and an Uncle Ben's apron!
For a chance to win and try this rice, head on over to the Uncle Ben's website and check out the recipes and let me know which one you would give a try.
