Tesco Value Creamed Rice Pudding
Advantages: soft, fluffy rice and thick creamy custardy sauce
Disadvantages: Bordering on the bland side
That distinctive stripey packaging might not be too pleasing on the eye but in my opinion this ugly duckling rice pudding completely turns into a swan once the tin is opened! One taste will not send ripples of nostalgia tingling through your taste buds of what your nana used to make but it certainly is quite pleasing to the pallate.
The rice is quite soft and fluffy, not soggy and over cooked and there is masses of it, at a rough guess possibly three quaters rice to one quater creamy custardy sauce (perfect) and also completly contradictory to the ingredients list thats states only 9% rice. The actual "sauce" is nice and thick without being too dense and stodgy and has a really creamy consistency and creamy taste. It's sweet but not tooth rottingly so, just a subtle hint of sweetness.
My only critisism and it really is the only one is that it is a tad on the bland side. Vanilla is not listed as an ingredient on the tin and I think Tesco would do well to add a little vanilla extract or essence to the mix just to give it that little lift of flavour and then in my opinion it would be near perfect (with the exception of my nana's which it could never compete with!)
Serving Suggestions (mine anyway!)
I like to eat mine either straight from the fridge (not the norm I know) or I warm up slowly on the hob with a dash of that important and sadly missing vanilla essence. Warmed through with a sprinkling of cinnamon or nutmeg, which is just perfect on the run up to Christmas on a cold night!
Skimmed milk, water, milk, rice and whey powder
Sugar 15g, fat 2g, saturates 1g, salt 0.5g and 190 calories (per serving of half can serving)
Would I reccommend this, oh yes! I love it but tend to only eat during winter leaving always one slightly unloved can in the cupboard over summer! A 425gram tin (recyclable of course) costs just 17pence, a very small price to pay for a traditional family favourite!
Summary: A small price for a traditional family favourite
