Rice £1.60, production costs must be almost 5 pence including the plastic wrapper. Really this is a deal?

Thks op. Love the lemon one. Will be stocking up tomorrow!

Best rice ever

They are never £1.60
These can be had for a pound everywhere most of the time, if you pay anymore than that your a mug!

Good deal at 49p though if you can get them!

Delicious, great deal

Home bargains usually have them for 79p but limited choice. Hot.

79p in morrisons too guys

the lime ones tasty with a dash of soy sauce/ chlli sauce

The brown rice with mushroom is very high in fibre - good for ya.

Are the flavourings used in these things really all that great? Rice is incrediably cheap and easy to cook, it can't be that hard to create something a similar easily from scratch. I know turmeric is quite a good spoce to put in rice. There's got to be some sort of ready mix out there you can put in to flavour rice.

If you have a rice cooker its just a case of flavourings it to the water when you start. Lemon or lime with some coriander and chili is amazing.
You can get rice flavouring spice mixes in supermarkets, generally under the tag pilau spice/mix, most aren't that amazing tbh.
There are some nice recipes/mixes online.

Home Bargains basmati pouches are always 49p.

The ones in home bargains aren't usually Tilda but are cheaper brands and not as good.

This is a deal because the cost of the product elsewhere is more expensive. And its 79p and 49p not £1.60 if you read the post.

Massively overpriced really considering the price of rice but you're paying for the convenience. I use these to make easy work lunches, quick, tasty and still cheaper than if I went out and bought lunch every day. Stocked up at Morrison's as they're also 79p there.

These really are very convenient for a quick lunch or side dish. I love the Tilda sundried tomato and Mexican varieties in particular. Just used up all the Tilda ones I bought for Morrisons for 79p. Will be stocking up again. Heat added!

I don't get why people say make your own... is it possible to make it in around a minute? Certainly not. I always make my own rice, but these come in handy for times you are in a rush, or just can't be bothered to have much cleaning up to do!

They don't just come with a couple of spices added either - for example, if you wanted to replicate the Brazilian one in OP's picture, this is what you'd need:

Natural Basmati Rice - Cooked (84%),Onions ,Sunflower Oil ,Red and Green Chilli ,Vegetable Stock Powder ,Garlic ,Parsley ,Tempero Baiano Herb and Spice Mix ,Salt ,Lime Extract

Plus it has no artificial additives, colours or flavours, so for me... it's a bargain!

I think you've kind of generalised what I was saying. I didn't say people should make their own, I merely asked the question as to how difficult it is to make your own. Incidentally that natural basmati rice looks very easy to cook. It's basically just the beginning of a curry recipe, the most difficult bit being the chopping of an onion. And I'm sure if you didn't have any parsley or tempero baiano herb, it wouldn't make much difference either.

Well worth the price. My brother's a fitness fanatic and eats this rice with everything. It's £1 in the Co-op usually and costing his mam a fortune...

HIS mam?
