Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice Garden Vegetable Blend is the latest rice offering now available for $1.69 for the 5.2-ounce box.

Kay Hadley: "What a pleasant surprise! Most of the quick-fix rice dishes we've tried have not suited our palate, but Uncle Ben's latest is great! The seasoning is mild but has good flavor; the vegetables taste quite fresh. Overall, we say give it a try! One complaint - there was not enough of it!"Don Russell: "We were mildly impressed with this item if for no other reason than it is not an instant product. Our Garden Vegetable Blend took about 30 minutes to prepare. It is colorful, tasty, salty and a little on the chewy side. Uncle Ben's adds carrots, onions, celery and parsley to this variety."

Doris Wilding: "We tested the Garden Vegetable Blend and it was a superb hit. It's fast and easy to make and has a delicious flavor. We recommend you try it."

Edyth Jensen: "We tried the Vegetable Garden mixture and found it fairly tasty. It will be a good addition with any meat or poultry dish."

Linda C. Tingey: "This is wonderful. I love the long grain rice and found the garden vegetable variety a neat blend. My son Tyler and I ate it all. It was even better warmed up the next day. Uncle Ben did himself good on this one!"

Conclusion: This Uncle Ben's rice dish is one you won't want to pass up!
