Congee disappointment

I was very happy to see mixed congee return to the Japanese store near where I work, even though I wasn't happy about the increased price. But I bought one anyway, and was going to do a glowing post about how great it was to once again consume congee whenever I wanted, but when I opened the can, it looked really watery.

I've had homemade congee, so I know that it's often like that, but the one in the can which I've bought many times was more glutinous, which is why I liked it. When it's not, I feel like I'm eating a drink that has bits of stuff in it. That's no fun.

So I'm wondering if the company that makes it has changed their recipe, or if I got an off can. Now I'm not so sure I want to shell out more money only to experience more congee disappointment :(
