I'm not the biggest fan of rice pudding, but when I saw that Kozy Shack No Sugar Added Rice Pudding had a "new improved taste," I decided that it was about time I give this type of pudding another chance. The fact that the calories had been reduced from 90 to 70 didn't hurt either!
What's in this rice pudding? I flipped over the package and discovered a pleasingly short list of ingredients: low fat milk (vitamin A and D), water, rice, inulin (chicory root extract), eggs, natural flavors, salt, sucralose, and carrageenan. I opened up a package to see if the flavor was really new and improved, and found a pleasingly sweet, thick rice pudding. The thing that I find so strange about rice pudding (and tapioca, for that matter) is the texture, but I found that this one was very appealing. I liked the flavor and the richness, and found that one cup was very satisfying.
As for nutrition, one 4-ounce cup of Kozy Shack No Sugar Added Rice Pudding provides 70 calories from 1 gram of fat, 120 mg of sodium (5% of the daily value), 3 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, 4 grams of protein, and 10% of the RDA for calcium. Really, that's a pretty healthy snack! The fiber and protein counts are really great for a dessert.
One 4-pack cost $4.19, which was a bit on the pricey side, but still worth it. I really liked this rice pudding and will definitely be buying it again. If you're looking for an alternative to regular vanilla or chocolate pudding, give this a try!
