I am kin to the original owners -- R.B. was my grandfathers 1st cousin. I found out at a family reunion in 2002, that the family sold the business, I was so heartbroken and now you've done away with a great tasting product. Is it because you have to pay for the name? Don't forget, if people cannot get the products they like, they are forced to shop around and that doesn't mean they will necessarily pick your product....bad for sales. Please start carrying the chili brick again because we have had some really nasty pots of chili without it.

R.B. Rice Company DID NOT own Rice's Chili! As I have posted before, Rice's Chili was started by my uncle & aunt, Dwight (Jack) L. Rice & Margaret Rice in Leavenworth, KS in the late Fifties/Early Sixties. Around 1964 they moved into the same building that R.B. Rice operated out of in Lee's Summit. R.B. Rice Company was the distributor for Rice's Chili. In the Early to mid eighties Harold Rice sold R.B. Rice Sausage company to Sara Lee, shortly thereafter my Uncle "Jack" Rice sold the Vette company to Sara Lee. The Vette Company was the "parent' company of Rice's Chili. AFTER Sara Lee owned both companies they apparently started calling Rice's Chili "R.B. Rice's Chili"

Since the RB Rice brick went away my wife has made chili using other products. There is no other product like "The Brick". I hope Sara Lee takes time to listen to their former customers.

It was the very best. I don't even make chili anymore because I can't find anything else that's even close to tasting like the Chili Stick/Brick. PLEASE EITHER BRING IT BACK OR POST A RECIPE SO THAT I CAN MAKE IT MYSELF.

I used to work at the R.B. Rice sausage plant in Lees Summit MO and of course the soup and chili plant was there in the same building. Haronld Rice (R.B.'s son has passed away) but Wayne Rice is still around and lives in the Kansas City area. You might try to locate him and ask if the recipe is owned by someone other than the Rice family. If not he might divulge the recipe to you.

G ONeal, neither Wayne NOR Lynn Rice have the recipe! They were not related to D.L. "Jack" Rice. AS you correctly stated, Wayne (& Lynn) were Harold Rices' children. Also, I don't think anyone has a clue as to the quantities of ingredients in the chili recipe. it would be impossible to downsize it for home use.

There are AT LEAST Four copies of the original recipe out there. Of course Sara Lee has one, I have one, my cousin Sharon who worked there has one, and an individual my uncle hired in the late seventies to run the Vette Company (Rice's Chili) has one as he, quit, and went to work for Oldhams Sausage who started offering chili to try and compete with Rice's Chili.

I looked up Sara Lee on Google and let them know that there is no such thing as low demand for their R B Rice products in St.Louis Mo.I also let them know that all their other products are easily replaced by the competition.When I see R B Rice in the stores Ill start buying their other products once again.Until then Its bye bye Sara Lee I knew you well......

The thought has crossed my mind, the startup costs would be huge.

Any ideas what the start cost could be? It looks like it would be good in a St.Louis Mo. market.

YES YES PLEASE bring back the r b rice's chili roll. I no longer make chili dip because any other chili roll taste yucky!! My local grocery also ran out of R B Rice's sausage before Christmas. Are they stopping that too?? Rice's is soo lean and seasoned just right. I don't eat any other kind.
