" Rice pudding.

Advantagessee op

Disadvantagesnone

"...cause it has to be Ambrosia creamed rice one of my favorite puddings. This delightful pudding has been around since 1917 and is made by using fresh milk in the lovely countryside of Devon. It comes in a 425g tin, which costs between 55p and 70p, depending on where you purchase it. It is widely available at all major supermarkets and little convenience shops everywhere. Did you know that there is actually a glass and a half of milk in every 425g ..." Read review

Further adventures with rice pudding

Advantagesquick, convenient, tasty

Disadvantageshomemade is probably better

"...from people who said that Ambrosia creamed rice was much nicer. At the time I did not know whether this was true or not as I had only ever tried Mullerice. However I decided to put my trust in my fellow Cioaers and give Ambrosia creamed rice a try. As it that wasn’t enough it received further endorsement from my late grandfather. According to my mother he used to love it. So I popped off to Asda and bought myself some. You can buy Ambrosia creamed ..." Read review

Creamed. Oo-er.

AdvantagesDevon knows how they make it so creamy

Disadvantagesbit sickly

"...the wrapper is blue) with Ambrosia in blue letters on a yellow splodge of what I assume is custard (because they make custard as well?). Above that, all around the top of the label is a farm scene I think, with a house and fields and blue sky (so not in Britain then). Below ‘Ambrosia is ‘creamed rice’ and ‘Devon knows…’(‘how they make it so creamy’, one presumes). On the back there is a spiel about how ..." Read review

Food of the Gods my Arse

AdvantagesQuick, Cheap, Healthy

DisadvantagesVile, Strange Colour, Tastes Old

"...baked beans, and as such, Ambrosia tinned rice pudding played a significant part in my (nutritionally challenged) upbringing. I would get home from school, ask what was for tea, and often get the response, ‘Tinned rice pudding, tinned rice pudding with jam, tinned rice pudding with syrup, tinned rice pudding with dried sultanas’. It is not these memories of tastebud deprivation which drive me to dislike Ambrosia tinned rice pudding, though, it ..." Read review

Advantagesit is thick and creamy and delicious

Disadvantagesslightly over priced

"...does the trick . But ambrosia is more creamier and you can really taste the difference. It doesn't really smell of much really just a creamy type of smell. ////// price \\\\\\\\\\\ It costs between 50 and 70 pence per can and is avaliable in all supermarkets.I know you can get cheaper tins for around 15 p but you are paying for quality with this. \\\\\\ stevo's verdict \\\\\ Oh aren't we the lucky ones having to put up with another ..."

AdvantagesEverything

DisadvantagesAbsolutely none

"...lol. You can actually buy light Ambrosia creamed rice but to be honest, there is not a great deal of difference calorie wise, between the two.

Disadvantagesu'll feel sick if u eat too much

"...I saw the tins of Ambrosia Cream Rice sat there on the shelf.

Creamy Yummy and Convenient

AdvantagesCreamy Tasty Lovely with Jam

DisadvantagesVery Few

"...I was virtually weaned on Ambrosia creamed Rice. My maternal grandmother loved it and since she was the matriarchal figure in our household, her word and views were not to be questioned. We frequently had Ambrosia for dessert at lunch time, at dinner time and sometimes at breakfast time with a dollop of raspberry or strawberry jam. Ambrosia Ltd was founded in Devon by Alfred Morris in 1917. This was a time of war, food shortage and rationing and ..." Read review

Ambrosia Creamed Rice Pudding

AdvantagesA good low fat tinned rice

Disadvantagesnone

"Ambrosia was founded in 1917 and the company initially produced infants food. Today Ambrosia is most definitely one of Britain's most loved brands. Ambrosia products use no artificial colouring or preservatives. Every can of Ambrosia contains one and a half glasses of skimmed milk, so as well as being a delicious pudding it is packed with calcium to help produce strong bones and teeth. Ambrosia is part of Premier foods, the UK`s largest food producer. Ambrosia ..." Read review

Rice one mate

Advantages Great tasting

Disadvantages not enough in the tin

"...Ambrosia themselves was founded in 1917 in the west country. Now they are owned by Premier Foods. And their rice pudding is still made at the Devon dairy. The package. The can we buy is the 425g size. It has sea blue coluor at the bottom half and turns into a sky blue at the top. It also has a picture of a dairy farm on the front giving an impression of a country taste. Ingredients :- Full cream milk. This is a good start I love full cream milk ..." Read review

Addictive Ambrosia

Advantagescreamy and rich. Easy to heat. Easy to store.

DisadvantagesIn a larger family one tin won't be enough.

"...approached my first tin of Ambrosia at the recommendation of my husband. He’s a creamoholic with a picky palate where flavours are concerned so I took the plunge – and plunged in a spoon. Wow! What a revelation. So THIS is what rice pudding can taste like when made properly? I was an instant convert. I love the light texture, not too lumpy yet not too smooth. Just enough texture to remind you that you are eating a “rice” pudding. And the taste ..." Read review
