      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A very nice biscuity chew

      Intro

      As if the bright golden packet wasn't enticing enough, they were on offer at £1 in ASDA. There were only the two varieties one of which I had had before and really enjoyed. Being it was the blue packet, which had introduced me to these chewy offerings, I opted for the shining golden packet which had one of my favourite words written under the SQUARES............................caramel. How on earth was I supposed to resist.

      Squares

      I've placed numerous quantities of rice crispies squares into the vending machines at work, but it had mostly been the marshmallow flavoured ones, which incidentally are delicious. I had not seen the golden ones for ages when I discovered them on the special offer shelf in ASDA. They were very inviting especially at the offer price of £1. There are four of the chewy bars in each bright golden packet and each is wrapped individually in similar wraps.

      They are approximately four inches long, 3 inches wide, and just short of an inch high, which makes them quite a substantial, eat. They are loaded with sweet goodness or badness if you are dieting or keeping an eye on you weight. They are reasonable on the fat side but the sugars are way over the top, this said you wouldn't expect anything else. So if you desire to partake you know the score before that first chewy bite hits your tongue, for once it has there will be lots more similar bites to follow.

      On removing the wrapper the obvious stares you in the face.............these are chocked full of rice crispies, they are everywhere. They are all bonded together with a golden elegance in the form of a chewy sweet caramel. Sticky and scrumptious. As you pull the bar away there are strands of chewy crispy caramel lingering between your mouth and the bar. It's like you are using the Squares bar to create an air guitar between you and the sweet sticky bar, you've created the strings now play it man play it.

      Now if you have no desire to be air guitaring then place the bars in the fridge for an hour before eating and you will find it is easier to eat, with no strings. Once it gets warm the caramel cause some problems but delicious ones. The bar has a sprinkling of melted chocolate over one of its larger surfaces, so every so often you get a bit of chocolate with your chewy bite. I can't decide on the quality of the chocolate since it is hard to get a bit on its own, but it doesn't appear to be one of the higher calibre chocolates, probably just a chocolate flavoured substitute but it tastes OK.

      Summary

      A great buy for a pound and a delicious treat. This is one the kids are going to adore, but being that there is a LOT of sugar it might prove prudent to limit their intake on this one. Me I'm fifty odd and if I want two I'm gonna have two, although they are quite filling and one and a half is probably enough in one sitting, since they can also be a little sickly if taken to excess.

        A yummy non-square snack that's good for a sweet treat

        I am currently attempting to improve my diet and reduce my bad snacking habits buut I have a real sweet tooth and a big weakness for sugary treats. I found these Rice Krispies Chocolate & Caramel Squares in the cereal bar section of my local supermarket, where they were on special offer at the cost of £1.00 for a multi-pack.

        The Squares are each individually sealed in a foil wrapper, and there were four bars in the pack that I purchased. They were certainly a bargain as that works out at a cost of just 25p per bar. The packaging has a golden yellow colour and allows you to see instantly that these are the carmale flavoured Squares variety.

        Basically a Rice Krispies Square is a rectangular shaped block made up of Kellog's Rice Krispies cereal and coated in a gooey marshmallow sauce which binds it all together. It's not actually a square! But I'll allow them to get away with the misleading and erroneous name, as they taste absolutely fantastic.

        The Rice Krispies stay true to their name, and are indeed very crispy and have a light and airy crunchy texture. The marshmallow coating is deliciously sweet and sticky, and with this variety is has a delicious caramel flavouring that gives a golden colour to the bar. The caramel mix adds a bit of a chewy texture to balance the crisped rice. You can tell these things are going to be bad for you as the sugar level is instantly noticeable and they are very sweet and sugary to taste. The flavour is quite plain but it's very pleasant and these have a slight edge on the ordinary plain bars.

        As if caramel wasn't enough, there is also a good helping of chocolate. There are small square shaped chunks of chocolate sprinkled over the top of the bar, and this is finished off with swirles of chocolate sauce. The chocolate and caramel taste lovely together and are a brilliant combination.

        I think that these bars are most probably made to appeal to kids but my boyfriend and I love them just as much as any child would! They give you a real sugar boost and are a nice change from my usual biscuits to go with a nice cup of tea in the morning.

        These are a tasty snack that are very convenient thanks to the individual packaging, and I often take these out with me when I don't have time to have a proper breakfast or when I fancy a quick snack. These are best eaten infrequently as they are very unhealthy - sugar makes up almost half of the contents! But as a treat or occasional snack they are very satisfying and I can't deny that they taste amazing.

        While searching for the nutritioanl values, I also stumbled across this recipe from Rice Krispies, which looks like it would be a nice one to try if you like these cerealbars but fancy making your own.

          Disadvantages

          Great all round

          Having always been a fan of Rice Krispies Squares of the normal marshmellow variety when I spotted the chocolate and caramel version I didn't hesitate to pick them up.

          In their gold and white packet with the usual Kellogs Squares slogan on the front these make for quite a visually pleasing product. Inside the multipack there are four individually wrapped 36g bars resembling the picture above.

          On opening the packaging instantly the fact that these are very sticky jumps out as the pack generally has to be peeled from the square inside. Despite the name these blocks are rectangular in shape with a base of Rice Krispies held together with caramel with a drizzle of chocolate on top as well as chocolate chips.

          The taste of these is absolutely delicious however they are quite sweet and of a decent size so 1 or 2 should be enough to satisfy most. These are obviuosly as with most things as nice are quite unhealthy.
          Each 36g bar contains:-
          153 calories
          1.5g protein
          27g carbohydrate
          14 g sugar
          0.3g salt


          Sold at around 40p individually and around £1.50 for a multipack when not on offer. I would say these are well worth the money for the quality and satisfaction factor alone.
          I would recommend these to anyone with a sweet tooth as I'm sure they will find them as satisfying as I did

          These are so nice. Although they are that bit more expensive than other cereal bars, they are larger and not as healthy for you. Such a shame as I could keep eating these. The wife loves these are well, but due to her being on a diet she is not eating these. All the more for me then!

          In some places you can buy these in individual bars which are I think 28g's and cost about 40p. You can get these in 4 bar packs as well, which sell for around £1.40. Recently Tesco was selling the 4 packs for £1, so we got a few. You just find these at the Cereal aisle.

          These are in a shiny gold pack and looks alright with the branding and the picture on the front.

          All these consist of is a lot of Rice krispies, mixed with a coating of caramel which makes it all stick together and a generous heling of decent sized Milk Chocolate Chunks. These are quite sweet, but a ncie sweet treat and not as sickly as perhaps a bar of Caramel Chocolate.

          These are a decent lenght, width and thickness and although not overly filling they fill a hole.

          Per bar these have over 180 calories, so a little bit better for you compared to a bar of Chocolate.

          I would recommend this one as the best flavour from the bars as they are tsty, sweet and I could eat these all day.

          Disadvantages

          good value nice bar

          My children love to have a breakfast bar in a morning and I don't mind letting them have one. My son tends to take his to school for snack time. I originally thought these were quiet healthy but as I have learnt lately the ones that my son likes are not that good for him and very high in calories. I have an added bonus that my children do not stop running around so they tend to burn off any of the excess fat that they may gain by eating so much, but their health will not benefit from eating some of the breakfast bars.

          Normally my son will have the kelloggs squares original bar which is mixed with marshmallow, lately he has decided to change his tastes and have the chocolate and caramel one. I can understand why because it does have a chocolate topping and is mixed with a tasty caramel which gives a nice taste when it is eaten.

          These bars are very much like eating breakfast they hold all the vitamins that you would find in a breakfast cereal such as niacin, iron, vitamin b6 and riboflavin b2, this is one of the good things about them, the other good thing is that they also contain milk which is good for calcium.

          These are a good sized bar but hold 151 calories and this is around the same amount that a bowl of breakfast would hold the only difference is that they are not as filling and would not keep me or my going for the day or fill our stomachs we would still be very hungry after eating this. For the calorie count in them they would be a snack that is definitely not healthy.

          These are made from rice krispies which are very nice and are stuck together by caramel which makes them sticky to eat and then they have a wiggly line of chocolate across the top of the bar. This looks a brown colour when you open it and is very chewy when you bite into it. It is very light to eat but very sickly. I could only eat one of these a day.

          These are good value for money if you are buying the multi pack which in asda costs £1.29 for a pack of 4 rather than buying them for 45p from the local shop it just saves a little bit of money. I wish that my son would have a healthier option by eating some fruit rather than this and wish that the school would ban them taking breakfast bars. These are nice tasting but think that they should not be eaten on a regular basis. They have got some good point but they are not suitable to eat as a breakfast due to them not being filling and would not keep you going.

          Over all I think these are a nice tasting bar but not healthy and are good value for money. I would advise to try these but not each too many of them.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I'm loving these!

          These are currently on offer in my local Sainsbury's so I've stocked up on a few packets in recent days. I don't purchase these very often as they work out to be quite expensive, especially if you can't get hold of the multipack options.

          ***What do they taste like?***
          The bars are basically Rice Krispies (as in the cereal) fused together and covered with a combination of chocolate and caramel. As a fan of both chocolate and caramel, I find it difficult to resist these if I see them in the supermarket as they simply call out to me!

          Taste-wise, I can taste the caramel a lot more than the chocolate. This is probably because the caramel seems to be both between the Rice Krispies and across the top of the bar, which provides a very sweet sensation that almost overrides the chocolate taste unless the mouthful that you're biting into has a chunk of chocolate in it. Because of this, it's only a good idea to eat these if you've got a very sweet tooth that really likes caramel as the taste can be rather sickly after a few mouthfuls!

          ***Nutritional information***
          Given the fact that these contain both chocolate and caramel in abundance, you probably won't be surprised to know that these aren't exactly the healthiest treat option. On average, they contain 151 calories per bar and 4.5g of fat.

          ***Overall thoughts***
          Despite the relative unhealthiness of these bars, I'm not at all put off. These aren't always readily available where I live and I often have to go for the chocolate type instead, but I prefer this variety even though it tends to be more sweet and sickly. I will admit that I often struggle to eat a bar in one sitting because of that, and would like it if Kelloggs could come up with some way to make the packaging resealable as they are quite big and not everyone will have the opportunity to eat it in one go. That aside, I'm pretty taken with these treats!

            These have been out for years, but I can only find them mostly in multipacks instead of being able to grab an individual bar when at a shop. My local shop up the road sells these singular, and I think they cost about 50p each. The Multipack has 4 bars in it, and costs arounf £1.70, but they are sometime on offer.

            The packaging on these is quite eye catching. It is a shiny yellow wrapper with some brown splodges over it. The Squares writing is also in yellow, so doesn't stand out against the pack that well, so I think that writing should be a different colour.

            The bars are made by Kellogs and obviously the Rice Krispie is the main ingredient in this bar. The bar is a rectangular bar which is about the lenght of my middle finger long, the lenght of my thumb wide and it is pretty thick as well. The Rice krispies are all stuck together with a Caramel syrup and on the top there is a layer of Caramel and a good amoount of Chocolate Chips mixed in. It probably sounds sweet, and it is, but it is so yummy, and since there is the "boringness" of the Rice krispies, mixed in with the sweet ingredients then it just all goes together well.

            The bar is 36g and has 151 calories and 4.5g fat, so perhaps a lighter and slightly healthier treat than a Chocolate Bar.

            No idea why they are called Squares as they are rectangular shaped, but who cares about a name.

            The nicest version of the Squares family which included original and Chocolate versions.

              Sugar attack

              I have had a secret childlike fascination with Rice Krispies Squares for a long time. There is just something so wonderful about crunchy rice krispies being lathered in marshmallow. I've even tried to make my own at home, but the different batches I end up with are either too sticky to be properly cut into squares or too sweet, and upon occasion a little bit too soggy.
              Somehow these mass produced ones always seem better than the ones I lovingly cajole to turn out right.

              These Kellogg's squares are the perfect amount of crunchiness combined with the perfect amount of sticky and squishyness. The chocolate and caramel ones take the flavour burst to a whole new level from the original ones. The chocolate and caramel is drizzled on this square to perfection. It's like an addictive sugar attack that is much appreciated. However, these may not suit everyone, particularly those that are put off by things that are sickly sweet.

              A pack of 4 from Sainsbury's costs £1.53.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A delicious 'Square' from Kelloggs crammed with rice cereal and chocolate.

                Kelloggs Squares are something that I have very recently been introduced to. When I heard about them from my fiance I decided that the next time I saw them I would indulge our sweet tooths and treat us to a few nice snacks from the four that they currently offer in the range, so when I spotted 2 packs (4 in a pack) from Tesco stores for £3.00 I picked the Chocolatey ones (I'm all about the chocolate!) and the Chocolate & Caramel ones (even sweeter with an added extra).

                These 'Squares' are oblong in shape and are around 4-5 inches long, 2 inches wide & around 1/2 an inch thick. These ones come wrapped in a golden foil which shows Kelloggs brand information, nutritional information, ingredients etc and everything is nice and easy to understand. There is around 6 months on the best before but they won't last 6 hours now I've tried them let alone 6 months!

                This particular 'Square' is toasted rice cereal which is covered in melted marshmallow (think of a golden coloured coco pop) and then covered with lots of delicious chocolate chips and a drizzle of chocolate all over. It has a very nice appearance and it has a very sweet smell as soon as I open the packet. The grains of rice are held together very well by the chocolate, caramel & marshmallow and it's quite a sickly bar and therefore one that I'd only want one of and wouldn't want to be greedy and have two as I easily could of some of the other 'Squares'.

                The grains of rice are lovely and crispy and overall I do think it's a very sickly sweet bar and this may not to be some peoples taste but it's definitely to my taste and when eaten after a chocolatey 'Square' it's even more delicious.

                Each 36g 'Square' has 151 calories and 4.5g of fat (3g saturates) per bar and this seems to be about standard for each of the 'Squares' in the range. I as expecting them to be higher than this so although they're still bad for you I was actually pleasantly surprised.

                I think that these would be a huge hit with young children too as they're are wickedly sinful and they should be enjoyed in moderation because there is 14g of sugars in each one so make sure you brush your teeth.

                I am going to rate these 5/5 as they're a very tasty treat and not too badly priced (I paid 45p for an individual one the other day from a petrol station). They're my favourite out of the range and I will no doubt but them again (as I've said above).

                  Disadvantages

                  A treat every now and then but very yummy

                  As a fan of a nice bowl of Kelloggs Rice Krispies served with ice cold milk in the morning, when I stumbled across these in the cereal aisle of my local supermarket, I have to admit I was drawn. Rice Krispies, chocolate and caramel in a bar? I just had to have a taste. Here, Kelloggs have lightly toasted the cereal before mixing it with soft but chewy caramel (more the consistency of the centre of a Rolo than toffee). This scrumptious mixture is then moulded into the shape of the bar before being drizzled liberally with melted chocolate, and bitesize chunks of delicious chocolate. It is then left to set before being packaged and sent our way to tempt us!

                  This bar is very sweet and I would not advise having it for breakfast! It is more of a mid afternoon treat to reward yourself after a hard day's work at school or the office, or a lunchbox filler for your children (though be careful with this as they may get addicted!). As you may expect this isn't the healthiest treat available (!!). I have reproduced the list of ingredients below:

                  Toasted Rice Cereal (26%) (Rice, Sugar, Salt, Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Barley Malt Flavouring, Niacin, Iron, Vitamin B6, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamin (B1), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12), Sweetened Condensed Skimmed Milk(Skimmed Milk, Sugar), Chocolate Flavour Coating (12%) (Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Whole Milk Powder, Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder, Milk Whey Powder, Emulsifier {Soy Lecithin}, Flavouring), Fructose, Glucose Syrup, Milk Chocolate Pieces (10%) (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Whole Milk Powder, Cocoa Mass, Emulsifier {Soy Lecithin}), Vegetable Oil, Invert Sugar Syrup, Sugar, Humectant (Glycerol), Gelling Agent (Agar), Flavourings, Stabiliser (Disodium Phosphate), Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin), Antioxidant (E320).

                  At 151 calories per bar, these aren't exactly on the same level as a piece of fruit, but then you wouldn't expect them to be. They have more calories in than a Special K chocolate cereal bar (at 90 calories per bar), but these are much larger than the afore mentioned bars, and in my opinion, a lot yummier!!! These bars also contain 14g of sugar, 4.5g of fat, 3g of saturates, and 0.3g of salt. So these are definitely more of a treat than an everyday munchie!

                  You can, at the minute, purchase these yummy treats at a large supermarket chain for £1.15 for 4 bars instead of the usual £1.54 for the same amount. This is a saving of 25%.

                    Not to my taste thank you very much!

                    These were on offer this week- half price at 77p for a packet of four- at my local generic supermarket chain so decided to buy some for my lunch box as hadn't tried this variety before. It is fair to say my opinion was mixed.....

                    For those who have never had a Rice Krispie square bar before, they are best described as like one of those Krispie cakes we all made as kids a long, long time ago.....the traditional variety are plain Rice Krispies bound together with melted marshmellow but you can also get this choc caramel flavour and a crazy choc variety that has Smartie-like chocolate imbedded through it (which are very naughty and indulgent!)

                    Having tried the other two varieties and enjoyed them, I thought I would give these a test-drive for a change but to be honest was not really that impressed. They are much too sweet for one thing and the combination of the chocolate and caramel when added to melted marshmellow just becomes too much. I have a very sweet tooth but even I found these too sickly and not really that enjoyable. The caramel for me is one flavour toooooo much!

                    Would I buy these again? Probably not! Were they worth 77p of my money- possibly yes, after all you cannot buy a bar of chocolate for less than 50p now so to get 4 of these for a tad more works out quite economical. But I do think I have worked out WHY they were so cheap!!

                    As a snack they are alright but if you're looking to spoil yourself, take my advice and stay with crazy chocolate or original! They're far nicer and there is very little I can say to recommend this variety at all!

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A useful teatime or elevenses treat.

                      Kellogg`s celebrate 103 years in business this year and what a business that has grown to be. The company started life in Michigan in 1903 with just 44 employees, yet today Kellogg`s sells it products Worldwide and employs well over 30,000 people, an incredible journey by anyone's standards.


                      Every supermarket or discount store you enter has Kellogg`s products displayed, their innovative cereals are firm family favourites. I am sure that most households have a box of Kellogg`s cereal tucked away in their cupboard.
                      The leading supermarkets often have Kellogg`s cereals on promotion or special offer. I recently bought some Sugar Puffs that were an astonishing £1 a pack in a discount store.



                      Kellogg`s Rice Krispie squares started off as a whim for me, having tried Kellogg`s Pop tarts and enjoyed them I fancied trying something different for a change. The Pop tarts are heavier, a better bet for a quick breakfast but the Rice Krispie squares are light and can be enjoyed at any time of day.
                      Asda had them on offer at a pretty ridiculous price and I just picked a pack up to try them, I plainly remember thinking that they were reduced by around 40p a pack. The normal RRP. is £1.52 for a pack of four.



                      Kellogg`s have created eye-catching packaging for the Rice Krispie squares, it immediately reminds me of a Crunchie bar wrapper. The soft golden coloured foil is peppered with darker goldy brown bubbles, like the Crunchie bar honeycomb.
                      Kellogg`s have added their name in bright red to the top left of the packet and then Rice Krispie chocolate caramel squares takes up the remaining space on the front of the wrapper.
                      On the back you find the nutritional value of the bars.



                      As you start to open the golden coloured foil wrapper a solid square of delicious sheeny looking rice Krispies start to appear, they are laced with caramel which gives the bar that `polished` look, the caramel is interspersed with chocolate pieces and again chocolate is drizzled within the bar.
                      The square has most definitely been designed by a temptress.



                      As you take your first bite into the bar light Rice Krispies start to pop, the square isn't a complete walkover to eat because the caramel makes a sharper bite essential to break a piece away
                      from the snack. The ingredients compliment each other so well and the crisp rice fades to nothing in your mouth leaving the sweet caramel and chocolate in its wake.
                      A rich sweet `toffee` smell wafts past your nostrils and before you know it your hand is reaching into the gold foil pack for another square.



                      Delicious they may be but good for the figure they ain't!
                      Almost certainly a wolf in sheep's clothing here, each bar contains over 150 calories and has a high fat and sugar content.
                      The information given states that the bar is OK for Vegetarians to enjoy, but they do contain soy, milk and barley.



                      In all fairness Kellogg`s in no way promote these Rice Krispie bars as being healthy or even as useful in dieting with the help of a calorie controlled intake. The bars would appeal to anyone with a sweet tooth, they might be useful for the odd lunchbox filler or at elevenses with a cup of coffee and I am sure the kids would love them as a snack when they got home from school.
                      They are scrummy and it would be dead easy to wipe out the packet in one go, but maybe the thought of eating over 600 calories at once would be a deterrent...or would it?

                        not as healthy as you may think

                        kelloggs rice krispie squares were designed as a breakfast bar but i think they are better suited as a snack than as a meal each day.

                        It is a well known fact that cereals are good for us so people just assume that cereal bars like this one are good for us too but this is where people are wrong.

                        This bar concists of rice krispies coverd and stuck together with a nice sweet chewy caramel that isnt too sticky, it has lovely milk chocolate pieces mixed in with it and a drizzling of milk chocolate on the out side, these taste great they are very sweet and chewy with a nice chocolate taste to them.

                        Each bar contains 150 calories, 15g of sugar and .3g of fat.

                        These are the best tasting cereal bar i have tryed but are not exactly healthy for me although i do enjoy them as a treat in the evening instead of snacking on chocolate bars as they are less in calories.

                          Disadvantages

                          -

                          As of late I haven't really treated myself much too any kinds of biscuits and chocolates as I am trying to loose weight for the summer but also because I haven't had a lot of money so it has been more about eating sensibly. On my shopping trip this week I decided to go down the chocolate aisle as I am not really that big a chocolate fan but I had quite fancied some this particular week. I looked at the offers and they had my favourite sweet snack, Kellogg's Rice Krispies Squares but not the marshmallow ones the Chocolate and Caramel ones which have always been my favourite as they are just that bit better than the originals.

                          The history of the company is it started in February 1906 when William Kellogg filed the papers making the company official. Cornflakes were discovered around 1876 and Kellogg's are now one of the most successful if not very well known companies worldwide.

                          The packaging is quite eye catching also as it is in a gold foil wrapper with darker golden squares and has the usual Kellogg's red text on it. The writing in bright yellow says squares which is really big and takes over the cover and there is nutritional information on the bag of each bar. You get a four in a normal multipack but the bigger packet the bars are in shows a picture of the actual bar and more detail of what the ingredients are in the bars.

                          Each bar contains 151 calories 8% of the daily allowance and 4.5g of fat which is actually quite high and for allergy information it states that these bars include milk, soy and barley but they are suitable for vegetarians. These bars are described as light, crispy grains of toasted rice cereal and milk chocolate chunks with a caramel chocolate flavour coating.

                          The actual bar looks very appetising; it smells so sweet and of caramel instantly as you open the foil wrapper. It is a rectangular shaped bar and glistens in the light because of the caramel glazed look and the fact it is joining the rice together. Then it has strips of melted chocolate across it and chunks of chocolate on the top as well which have melted in a bit.

                          The actual bar is very nice to eat, it is addictive though and being rice it is quite light but it is only meant for a snack it won't fill you up really. The taste is very sweet and it is very chewy but the more you chew the more the chocolate melts and a really strong taste of caramel lingers but this is great as it leaves me wanting more.

                          If these sound like something you might be interested in buying then they can be bought in all supermarkets either in multipack or sold separately. However, these are probably more value for money in a multipack, they are classed as a cereal bar but I'd think these wouldn't be filling enough for breakfast and the marshmallow one would be too light but this might be too heavy. A bit sweet, first thing in the morning but I have them more as a sweet snack through out the day.

                          To buy these currently at Asda they cost £1 for a multipack which is really cheap so stock up while you can. I'm sure to buy separately they must be about 40p-50p like most things these days.

                          I would recommend them to anybody with a sweet tooth but if you don't like chocolate you might not like these as they are very sweet and are not very good for health. As I said though I don't eat a lot of chocolate normally so for me these were a treat but I have ended up eating the 4 in quite a quick amount of time as they are very addictive and you will find you eat them quickly.

                          If you want anymore information on Kellogg's and their products then go to http://www.kelloggs.co.uk and then click on Products and find these Squares for all nutritional information and detailed health information on the product.
