Hubby likes Kozy Shack Rice Pudding. I think it would be safe to say that Hubby loves Kozy Shack Rice Pudding. He has long looked for a rice pudding recipe that is as smooth and creamy, and has yet to fine it. A few months ago he decided to abandon his search for a homemade rice pudding and stick with the Kozy Shack – Why mess with perfection? was his rational.
One thing that has bothered him for a looooooong time (seriously) was what was the difference between European Style and Original Kozy Shack Rice Pudding? I mean it really bothered him, but not enough for him to spend the three bucks on the European Style that he was afraid he might not enjoy.
So, last week one of the local grocery stores had Kozy Shack on sale for $2.99, I had 75¢ coupons – which they doubled – and Hubby figured for $1.49 he’d take a chance on the European Style Rice Pudding and see if he liked it.
Now, Hubby thinks the 16 oz container is a single serve portion. Most serious about this, he regularly sits down and eats an entire container of Kozy Shack Rice Pudding for a snack. With that in mind, it nothing out of the ordinary for me to see him bring out a container of Kozy Shack Rice Pudding and a spoon.
What was unusual, was when he brought out a second Kozy Shack. I thought that was a little excessive, even for him (and no, it never entered my mind that he would offer to share with me, ’cause he never has before).
Hubby then announced, “Let’s do a taste test comparison!”
I nearly fell over at the word “let’s” as it implied I’d get to taste too!
To my great shock, Hubby offered me up a spoon and a pudding. Then he promptly complained when I double dipped – ’cause you know he never gets my germs any other way.
I told him I needed more than a spoonful of eat to compare, and he actually went along with that argument. He allowed me two spoonfuls of each type!
What a guy.
Original Kozy Shack Rice Pudding
• Fresh vanilla flavor
European Style Kozy Shack Rice Pudding
• More glutinous
• Hints of brown sugar
• Not as sweet as Original, and even though the European has ground vanilla, it tasted less vanilla-y
Hubby liked his Original Kozy Shack Pudding much better than the European Style Kozy Shack Pudding!
(I liked the European Style Kozy Shack Pudding better.)
