My love affair with rice crispy started only two years ago when one of my neighbors surprised me with some of her rice marshmallow goodies. Growing up in Hungary, we had no such product as marshmallows in a bag, it was only an ingredient in special candies or confections. So it is no surprise that I got my first bag only after I had children and we went on our first camping trip (shame on me). Anyhow, I still can’t eat them right out of the bag …. Like seasoned Marshmallow eaters have been doing it since childhood, but I absolutely adore it in a rice crispy form. The Mischievous Sampler of Marshmallow and Rice Confections is exactly what it sounds …. Mischievous.
These round, one bite size goodies are so tasty and the sampler is just the right way of getting a special bit of different goodness in each bite. Creator, Sarah Figueroa Berchild put a little bit of extra something in each piece, inspired by cultures, different countries and unique flavors. The 9 piece sampler included the following flavors: Tall, Dark and Crispy (oh, goodie … one of my favorite); Lava Aloha (coconut and dark cacao); Italian Kiss (hazelnut + milk chocolate); The Big Kapuna (macadamia nut +white chocolate); Gingerlicious (cinnamon and candied ginger); Peace. Love and Peanut Butter (peanut butter and cinnamon); One, Two, Chai, Chai, Chai (masala spice black tea); and Plain Jane (vanilla). I absolutely love the Plain Jane, it was by far my favorite.
Now, if you like Rice Krispies, you will go crazy when you open this box …. Oh so many choices and so many ways of tickling your taste buds. They are all natural, gluten-free, made with brown rice and without gelatin. While I thought that my little boy with food allergies will devour these goodies, he was disinterested. But my two older ones did their fair share and thought that one box was not enough.
