|Scores: (1-5, 5 being the best)
We found the taste to be similar to most bean and rice meals,
not too spicy and a nice blend of flavors
We let the meal sit for the recommended time and
found it to be soupy. We let it sit for 5 more minutes and the texture improved.
We found the product satisfactory for a rehydrated meal.
This product will store very well. We found the meal to be quite
substantial and refrigerated half of it and rewarmed it the next day. It was
no different on the second day.
This is a fairly new product and is not
readily available in many stores yet. It is available on The
Gluten Free Pantrys web
(3.0) Overall we think this is a great
product for certain occasions like lunch at the office or anywhere
on the go where you have access to boiling water.
