Found 23rd May 2015
I have never seen 1kg of long grain rice for 40 p.

I bought a few bags to try but what can you say cheap as chips.

lovely... a house that smells of rice

Its terrible stuff and it's been 40p for more than a year too.

On the other hand, I'm sure I've seen cheap long grain rice at around 40p/kilo in every major supermarket.

interesting are they easy to make?

Standard price there abouts across all supermarkets with some at 40p and some at 45p, not seen any difference in quality between any of them. Last bag I bought was 40p from Morrisons. I actually prefer curries with this rice and also makes a nice rice pudding. Even if I order a takeaway I tend not to order rice most of the time but instead cook this rice.

I'm surprised anyone would believe this was Lidl only and just goes to show how people have a false perception of Lidl value some of the time. When I bought from Morrisons I did so because had a voucher, halifax cashback plus also they have a reward scheme card making the shop considerably cheaper, probably worked out I was paying only about 32p a bag (rough calculation in head). Same would be true of Tesco where I normally wait until I have a voucher plus get benefits like clubcard points and cheaper petrol. Also with Tesco's its normally an online shop saving me considerable time, petrol and a far wider range of products of which I tend to go for everyday value and the offers. The quality is far higher than Lidl too overall. Lidl would be just about the most expensive option for me, not just price but convenience and my own time. I always seem to go in when there is only one till operating and its a 10 minute wait to get served if I'm lucky (not great when you have frozen in the trolley) and the limited range means I often have to go to another supermarket anyway.

Wherever you buy it though, its great value rice.

Basmati's soft and fluffy.
Long grain is standard, hard rice.

Well I type fast for one thing and certainly the vouchers don't take any time to organise if that's what you mean. No point not using them when they are sent/emailed to you and they will save you money.

Both are long grain rice and both can be soft and fluffy. Some claim the flavour of basmati is better but I couldn't tell the difference so don't pay the extra. It's mostly about where its grown. I think basmati is india and around that area but rice just described as long grain can be from anywhere often the USA I think. Not to be confused with that horrible easy cook rice that the yanks make which is awful, they also do normal long grain rice as well. However on the positive side the long grain rice from the USA doesn't have the pesticide residue that a lot of basmati rice has so is much safer to eat as well as cheaper. Safety standards in India are not as high.

Just saw this. Yeah, dead simple. Fill a sock with rice (or dried wheat, rice is cheaper / wheat stays hot longer ). not too full, you needvplenty of movement. Sew up the opening. Maybe add some essential oil, lavender I usually have. Stick it in the microwave for a min or 2 to heat.

Covers are the hard / fun part. I usually get teddy bears from charity shop, rip the back seam, pull out most of the stuffing, and put in velcro. I got some cheap fleece blankets from ikea, so I'm going to try making covers this time!!
