When I go grocery shopping I'm usually on the lookout for shelf-safe microwaveable food items I can stash in my desk at work for those times when the Wheel of Death is down to those items they put in just to ensure the machine is never totally empty (I mean, I don't know exactly what's in, for example, a "Tijuana Breakfast Bagel Sandwich," but I'm not interested in finding out for myself either). So today I spotted what looks to be a new product: Rice A Roni Express Heat & Serve Rice, Hearty Beef flavor; microwave in the pouch! It looked interesting, so I bought a couple of packages of it and tried one just now. And you know what? I was really quite surprised at just how revolting it was.
