I lived in England from age 6-10, prime semolina years. As an American adult, I rediscovered these little sachets at a local import shop. I bought a whole bunch, and eat one every once in a while (topped with a bit of blackberry jam, of course), and memories of England come flooding back. We were served this amazing comfort food at school in England, and it was one of my all-time favorite British foods; still is. Bird's, please don't ever discontinue this product; you will kill a beloved part of my childhood...thanks.

Home-made rice pudding, tapioca pudding ( which I once overdosed on and made myself feel sick Ughhh, and creamy semolina pudding. The Other Half just loves semolina pudding, a man of simple tastes he may be but when it comes to semolina pudding he suddenly changes into another Heston Blumenthal. We will move onto the Birds semolina in a moment.... The cans of Ambrosia semolina are way beyond his wildest dreams, the rich and creamy semolina pudding is ... Read the complete review

This is real comfort food from my childhood, reminds me of the best bits of school dinners. Easy to make just add boiling water and stir until thick just like making instant custard only a bit thicker. It has a slightly grainy texture and is not completely smooth like custard. The flavour is subtle and tastes of ... semolina I guess. I find it needs a big blob of strawberry jam to make it extra yummy. I also remember chocolate semolina as a child so I guess you could stir in some cocoa or a couple of chunks of chocolate. One packet serves 3 although have to admit that one packet only serves two in my house (maybe we are just greedy). Not the ... Read the complete review
