Ben's Your Uncle



Lunch is a rarity for me at work.
And when I do partake, it is usually always at my desk.

While grocery shopping this weekend,
I thought I'd try Uncle Ben's Bistro Express rice packages.
They were on sale for 99 cents.
Helluva deal, I say
and a pretty inexpensive experiment.
Not to mention, I can nuke these suckers in 90 seconds.
Can't ask for much more than that.

So I bring my Sun Dried Tomato and Herb package to work today.
As I'm hoovering my lunch,
I'm reading the back of the package.

The Bistro series boasts "No Preservatives".
Really?
This edible product has a pretty long shelf life.
It doesn't expire until 2012.
That's a year from now.
And it doesn't need to be refrigerated or frozen.
How can it not have preservatives?

It also has no artificial colours.
Pffftt!
Pulleeze!
As I read through the ingredients,
I note the third-last item is colour.
Granted, it doesn't say "artificial".
But if you have to add colour,
doesn't that make it fake?

Despite all of that,
it wasn't too bad.

But I'm still hungry.
It was rice, after all.

I hope the boss sends me to Starbucks later.
I could go for a latte and a fudge oat bar.
