    Serving is way too small. It looks delicious but it's not different from any regular rice pudding recipe calorie wise for a REAL serving. - 4/4/14

    i was SO excited to read this. love rice pudding, and those marvelous flavors and coconut milk all spelled 'amazing treat' to me.
    but then when i got to the serving size i realized it was bait and switch.
    a quarter cup of rice pudding is a scant three mouthfuls.
    thanks for nothin'.

    Two guesses- 1.) Uncle Ben's is a sponsor of SparkPeople, and 2.) Uncle Ben's doesn't care about our health. They want you to buy their product. Read with discretion, folks. With white rice and sugar, this isn't something anyone who is trying to live a healthy lifestyle should be eating regularly. - 5/16/14

    It was very good, a nice change of taste. We only have non-fat milk and used a different sweetener, but very nice and I'll make again. My serving sizes are larger. Happy to save calories elsewhere in exchange for a nice treat. - 4/4/14
