Fruity Pebbles Marshmallow Crispies? The jury is still out.

Good afternoon,

It’s been a few weeks of my son telling me that “rice crispy treats made with fruity pebbles is way better that the original” – he even went so far as to buy the marshmallows and fruity pebbles, which he kindly left for me in the pantry to make. Listen dude, this is probably the easiest thing to make short of making home made ice cubes. If you need the recipe for ice cubes, just let me know 😉

So I made them:

I can see the appeal. Visually, I give them an A+ and they even smell great. But I don’t know if it’s because I was brought up on the true original “rice crispy treat” or what, but these things are just too sweet for me and I couldn’t really even eat one.

The addition of the sugary “fruity” cereal just made my teeth hurt thinking about it, and made my not hungry for more. They are a solid C-

So I have to veto these in the Arter house, I’m not into just some “low average” treats around here. I mean that if Im going to indulge in some calories, I want to make them count. Casey, when you move out soon to your own apartment, you can make as many batches of these as you want. But when you want to come back from the dark side, just stop by ‘Ole Dad’s House for a real treat. A Rice Crispy Treat…you can’t mess with perfection. Unless you add some peanut butter to your Rice Crispy Treats, then it’s OK to mess with them 😉

Happy snacking. Ryan
