Kellogg's Rice Krispies
Disadvantages: Tasteless without sugar
Kellogg's Rice Krispies have been about for yonks, apparently since 1928, made from rice grains that are cooked, dried and toasted, this produces a cereal which puffs up and when it is introduced to milk creates the famous Snap, Crackle and Pop taste we all know and love from childhood adverts.
Well since those days the cereal isn't advertised as much, for me and my family it is almost as famous now as the ingredient used to make those lovely little rice krispie chocolate nests.
Coming in the traditional blue box with the characters snap, crackle and pop all sitting around the bowl, this is an easily recognisable brand and part of the Kellogg chain, you should recognise these anywhere in the world in any language.
The cereal is a popular one for breakfasts around the world, in the UK, you can buy packets in 450g or 600g boxes, the 450g box costs £2.10 at Tesco or £2.65 for the 600g box. The larger box should easily last the average family at least two weeks of breakfasts. You could alternatively buy a tesco own brand version which costs under £1 for 450g and being honest you wouldn't notice much difference in quality.
The cereal isn't overly fatty although does have its share of salt, it contains 120 calories for a 33g serving and no fat, it does really need sugar to give it some flavour though otherwise it makes for an incredibly dreary breakfast cereal. It is nutritious and has iron and fibre within, but you have to add the sugar or else it tastes of nothing at all.
Obviously for any kid (or big kid) the appeal is when the milk is poured and you hear that famous snap, crackle and pop of the rice puffs, this never loses its appeal, but with cheaper versions on the market, its not as amazing as it once was and you are very much paying for the name as much as anything.
It's the kind of product you will find on breakfast tables in hotel chains around the world and it is a brand that is synonymous with Kelloggs, it has other uses with Rice Krispie bars and the chocolate cake things which are becoming more popular but overall I'd say for me as someone who is conscious of taste and cost it tastes no different to Tesco own brand and costs twice as much, so I generally go for the Tesco own name brand nowadays which is a shame.
