  • Completely unacceptable. Labeled "gluten free" right on the front, but noticed barley and rye gluten on the ingredient list after my celiac child took a bite. This is misleading at the very least, but downright dangerous for someone with celiac or allergy. I will never buy their products again because either they made a huge mistake in the labeling, or don't realize that rye and barley gluten IS gluten. I would give zero stars if I could. I will be calling the company Monday to complain. I also see that no one from the company cared to respond to the other 2 comments here regarding the same issue. Clearly it is not a priority, or it would have already been addressed

  • Made as directed, it was ok. I think it needs to be kicked up a notch, kind of bland.

  • This wasn't at all what I thought of. I began cooking this meal and the smell permeated the house, not in a good way. I thought that it was one of those meals that smell horrible yet would taste good. The meal wasn't even close to horrendous. I tried 2 bites of the meal and thought this tastes horrible. I put the bowl down, drank some water, and thought it was just my taste buds. So I tried 1 more bite. That bite almost got spit back out. I didn't take another bite. Usually I love anything that is put out by this brand, not today. Zatarain's this isn't your best try. Chalk this up to a bad experiment and move on. Love the brand and most of their meals, not this one. Best way to cook this is to start by not purchasing this particular meal. Any other Zatarain's product is good. This one missed bad.

  • Cannot understand how it's legal for this company to label GF (Gluten Free), and have the ingredients BARLEY and RYE GLUTEN in the product. Unacceptable. Also couldn't find an allergen warning statement on the box. ???? Cannot trust this company for health safety.

  • Very tasty rice! Works great as a side (sans meat) or a main dish. I prepared it with shrimp, but chicken or sausage would also work really well. Yum!

  • I saw this in my local store and I almost bought it. The box was labeled gluten free. Good thing I double checked the ingredients. This could have been disastrous for my celiac son.
