Few treats are as flexible as rice pudding. The pudding can be eaten hot or cold. It can be made with fresh or leftover rice. It can be cooked with water, milk or a variety of added flavors and textures, including cinnamon and raisins. Even easier, consumers can choose from a selection of ready-made rice puddings in local grocery store refrigerators. Our tasters recently tried five brands of the thick and tasty treats.
