Review: Mahatma rice!

Thanks to my involvement as a BzzAgent, I recently had the opportunity to review something yummy- white rice and brown rice from Mahatma!  Mahatma is the new name for the well-known rice formerly sold as S&W Rice.  It's actually the best selling rice brand in the US and is sold in a number of varieties including extra long grain rice, parboiled, whole grain brown, rice mixes, Thai, Jasmine and Indian Basmati. 

We received two bags of rice to review- the whole grain brown rice and the white rice. I was very pleased with both of these- I'm known to have trouble cooking rice properly, but I had great success with these and was able to make some great side dishes for our meals. I thought the rice tasted good and cooked up nice and fluffy. I especially liked the brown rice and it's a new go-to side dish for our family.  A good source of whole grain dietary fiber and tastes yummy too!

If you haven't dropped by the Mahatma website, you should definitely do so. It's full of information on the nutritional value of its products, a section on healthy living, and a great recipe section. And the next time you're at the grocery store, pick up some Mahatma rice and add it to your weekly menu! 

Disclaimer: I received rice to review for myself, as well as coupons for free rice to share with my friends and family. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
