I know, I know… It’s been way too long since I last posted! There’s just so much going on here at home that it’s been a rough few weeks. Hopefully, within the next few weeks everything will taper off and it’ll be a blogger’s life for me! Now, let’s get down to the grit!
These cups are much, much more than expected! Last time we went to Costco, I picked up fruit cups with coconut milk in them and I LOVED them. But sadly, every trip since then they haven’t stocked them. Sad, I know. I saw these cups there several times before but I didn’t want to waste the money if we didn’t like them. I finally caved and I’m so glad I did!
They’re reasonably priced at 8.99 for 12 snack cups. The cups are about the size of a regular yogurt cup, but they are much more filling! The box states that the cups are able to be warmed, chilled, or room temperature. I personally have only tried them chilled and room temperature and I have to say, chilled is astounding! I don’t even feel a desire to try them warm!
I was a little nervous to dig into these, to be honest. Coconut for me can go either really well or terrible. The flavor on the first initial bite is a bit strong, but it’s definitely in a delicious way. There is a little bit of chunkiness due to the advertised coconut bits, but it’s something you can look past. The vanilla taste to the pudding itself is reminiscent of a night at home, cuddled up with blankets, watching your favorite movie. It’s hearty and decadent. The rice is soft enough to give the pudding the traditional texture of rice pudding but has no indication of sogginess. Overall it’s a wonderful treat that is just the right amount of sweet if you aren’t looking for a large dessert serving. I would highly recommend trying this!
Now, it wasn’t a hit with everyone in this family but if you’re into traditional rice pudding and coconut pie, I definitely would give this a shot! If I was to change anything, I honestly would take out the bits of coconut. I feel as if they aren’t necessary to be delicious, if anything, they seem a bit of unneeded flair.
If you’re in Costco, looking for something new, pick these up! They are a wonderful portable, fluffy, and satisfying dessert!
