Nestle has launched a range of rice pudding products under its Carnation brand in the UK.

The company has developed a line of dessert mixes that, when milk is added and heated, become “scrumptious rice puddings” that “taste just like homemade”.

The range consists of four flavours – original, cinnamon, chocolate and caramel – and is free from artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or sweeteners.

The products have an RRP of GBP0.79 (US$1.29) and are on sale in Tesco and Asda stores. The original and cinnamon varieties are on sale in Sainsbury’s.
