What do you think of Cocoa Krispies?
Overall Average Rating = 4 (out of 5)
I saw an adorable idea that we might try making for my kid's school party this year. Make Rice Krispies treats as usual using Cocoa Krispies, but instead of putting the treats in a pan, shape them into small golf ball sized balls. Insert a pretzel stick into each ball and then dip the balls halfway into melted chocolate. Then you can add sprinkles and let them cool! Doesn't that sound neat?

Cocoa Krispies just tastes better than Cocoa Pebbles.

I like Cocoa Pebbles better. The Cocoa Krispy's chocolate coating washes off in the milk. Whereas the Cocoa Pebbles are made better with the chocolate and stay chocolate tasting while making the milk chocolatey.

Don't be a hater. This cereal is immense and makes the milk taste so good.

I just am still so confused about a points in the late 80's - early 90's when there was a cereal available called Cocoa RICE Krispies. Cocoa Krispies was also available. The cereals taste distinctly different, with a Chimpanzee on the Cocoa Krispies box and "Snap, Crackle, & Pop" on the Cocoa RICE Krispies box.
Cocoa RICE krispies was a bit stronger in chocolate, it took longer to get soggy in milk then Rice Krispies, and it had that light Rice Krispies after taste. I liked to some times eat a handful without milk. It's only downside was the chocolate or dye could be left on hands, surfaces, and clothes.. usually if the cereal got wet but some times without even being wet. This was a perfect ten!
Too bad this isn't Cocoa RICE Krispies. Some how this cereal by the same company that clearly should be identical was ruined to me by those spots of Cocoa Rice Krispies. The taste were different, the after taste were different, and these have different soggy rates.
Add two all of this.. there are two types of people in the (cereal & chocolate) world, those who favor Cocoa Pebbles and those who favor Cocoa Krispies and you might start to see why I can ramble about two types of Cocoa Rice Cereal.
I have wavered between the Chocolatey Pebbles and Cocoa Krispies. But I can never forgot those Rice Krispies. Especially with the rate both Pebbles and Cocoa Krispies turn soggy.
What to expect.. It's conflicting to try to prepare this cereal. You need much more milk then you want. You can expect soggy cereal every single time, no matter what you do. If you pour alot in, then only the top will be crunchy, if you pour a correct ratio of cereal to milk then all of it will be varying degrees of soggy, if you pour a little in then the rice absorbs milk so fast it will still be soggy. Again, no matter what you do you get soggy cereal. The soggy rate also can be effected by what you are using as your "milk".
I would strongly suggest against Rice Milk as you can get a conflict in taste. This cereal is good if you want a lumpy chocolate milk after you finish attempting to eat your cereal. The after taste of Cocoa Krispies is a slight vitaminy, weak metallic hint with some sort of bake taste.
Since this is a race, the good chocolate taste doesn't end up as important as getting the cereal in your mouth before it's purely moosh. This mind set is very bad to be in while eatting and may upset your stomach. That's also a negative to consider that may make even people without allergies feel symptoms they may confuse with allergies.
I give one recipe usually labled Cocoa Krispies a 3,.. but a 2 if you have any allergies.. even take you milk substitute into consideration here.
I give other recipe referred to as Cocoa RICE Krispies a perfect 5 out of 5. Soggy resistence and a true chocolate taste made this difficult to ruin. I wonder if they use this at times in modern products.. especially ones that specifically say " Cocoa Rice Krispies cereal".
If it's at all any factor, I have spent my life mostly living in Test Market areas. This means, at times, I can buy things at stores and resturants that are under consideration but not officially released world wide. These items do not provide any indication that they are NOT released world wide or that they are a marketing test (probably because that would effect sales results).
I have to rate this a 3 because you can't escape the sogginess, the flavor drains from these when they are wet, and this isn't a good cereal for people with allergies ( any way you look at it). Their frequent formula adjustments means an inconsistent taste from year to year, more so then other cereals. Boxes and other products suggest they may, hopefully, switch towards Cocoa Rice Krispies, but I hope they officially change the name when they stick to that so we can look at their ratings differently.
