Around the World in 5 Minutes with Near East - Review and Luxury Cruise Sweepstakes

I had the opportunity to try Near East couscous recently. I had no idea what to expect! Well, I was pleasantly surprised! The best part about this review was discovering a product and meal option that I would not have discovered on my own.

Couscous (pronounced Koose-Koose) is made from tiny granules of pasta and is a staple in many cuisines around the world. Cooked and served like rice, couscous has been around for centuries. Near East Couscous has a light and fluffy texture and cooks in only about 5 minutes. It can be served as a side dish or in main dishes.
