Five per box, they'll cost you $2.99. Described on the box as "crispy brown rice covered in creamy marshmallow."

A mom's (my) take: Not my favorite. I do like a Rice Krispie treat, but these just don't come close. Dry, not enough marshmallow, not very sweet. The idea was a good one: organic, brown rice, low sodium, low calorie....but I'm afraid it didn't add up to much taste. (While I didn't love these, here's a little something I've been buying recently at TJ's that I DO love...)
Overall rating: 2 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: Emphasis on the rice, not so much on the marshmallow. If you're looking for Rice Krispie's identical twin, these don't measure up... The difference is mainly in the marshmallow used in the bar. There is not as much glaze and it's not as flavorful. However, the bar itself is chewier, something which I really enjoy. The rice taste tends to come out a lot more, but it's not overpowering. In a nutshell, these aren't quite on the same level as the name-brand versions, but if you're looking for a little variety in your marshmallow-rice-treat-tasting career, give these a try. :)
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Here's what else we're (ok, I'm) loving this week: 

  • Y'all, last Saturday was the Junior prom. Seeing your boy all grown up in a tuxedo, well, it was something. Here's Jack. And with his beautiful date. *sigh* 
  • My friend Shelly's cookbook was released last week. You'll be seeing more of it on the blog this week, but just do yourself a favor and order it. ;) 
  • The New Orleans nail polish collection from OPI! Love! 
  • Jessica does it again...makes something that I MUST recreate in my kitchen...Amaretto Bourbon Punch. (Amaretto is one of my love languages.)
