It is 250g.
still £4.99 in Bedworth !
I always thought reduced to clear are national deals, but scanned £4.99 at my local Superstore
Or maybe the type of store plays a role? I love this rice even if it's not strictly speaking rice, would be interesting to know in what kind of tesco the deal works and where it dosn't

Thanks for this pepper00, so it isn't the store type at fault. I checked the Superstore on Cromwell Road, London and it's definitely £4.99

My local takeaway makes a point of saying their rice is Tilda. Have to say this is good quality

Was a genuine question, but the banter is appreciated I was actually also thinking that this "giant" rice being "wild" is nothing out of the ordinary. Isn't all rice wild?

Isn't wild rice grown in the sea?

Isn't wild rice grown in the sea?



I thought rice was grown in some sort of pad (wet) fields in various Asian countries where there is a high water level. It all ultimately goes through some factory process for preparing for sale once picked, but it is all wild too. Never heard of anyone growing rice in their house, greenhouse, or in factory/indoor environment.

Is the Tilda "giant" stuff actually just normal typical size then? Just wondering if this "giant", "wild" rice is just marketing rubbish?
I think "wild" rice is a different strain/species to the regular "cultivated" rice.
It's black too. I seem to recall reading somewhere it is grown off the coast of california/mexico.

Obscure humour, one grain of rice with one grain of salt
