GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Uncle Ben’s. We couldn’t believe how tasty this rice is—and how quickly it’s ready (about 10 minutes). Grains are fluffy and distinct, not mushy or watery, and its nutty flavor makes this so much more than a dutiful health-food choice.
TASTE TEST AWARD: Success. Pleasantly tender with just the right amount of al dente bite.
