New Product Review:
Rice Krispies Treats Cereal
From Kellogg'sReviewed by Mr Breakfast on 10/14/2003
This is a good cereal. Like the original, this new cereal snaps and pops as you douse it with milk. The texture of crumbled Rice Krispies Treats is a "treat" for your mouth. The milk creeps into the crevices of each clump, so that each bite is a fine collection of moist and crunch. I was worried that this cereal might be too sweet, but the makers found a nice balance, and the new cereal is only marginally sweeter than its namesake.
I also enjoyed the bottom of the bowl. The single Rice Krispies -- stragglers that broke from their clumps -- float joyfully in the flavored milk, and it's like winning a bonus little bowl of Rice Krispies.
The price we paid: $2.99

What do you think of Rice Krispies Treats Cereal?
I accidentally messed up a pan of my favorite homemade Rice Krispies treats yesterday with the unexpected result of creating something with the same texture as the amazing cereal. I just devoured a big ol' bowl of nostalgia without having to brave the Walmart chaos! Here's the original recipe - I used 10 ounces of marshmallows instead of 20 ounces... http://www.merrygourmet.com/2011/05/guest-post-brown-butter-rice-krispies-treats/

In PA, they sell it at fresh grocers at 5 dollars a box. Expensive I know. I learned the hard way. In Jersey, they sell it at Wal-mart for 3$ a box. I have to buy these weekly since my BF is overly obsessed over this stuff. Trust me, I did my research.

I remember growing up to this stuff! This was the best ever, getting up on Saturday watching cartoons and eating my rice krispy treat cereal was one of my favorite things to do!
I live in California in a big city and never can find it and think of this cereal everyonce in awhile and went on a trip with my gf's family to north dakota and in the smallest town ever they had it and bought a few boxes shipped them home and busted one open and ate a whole box for dinner. not eating one of your favorite foods in a decade then eating it is indescribable :)

The cereal of perfection!!!! So good!!!!

My all time favorite cereal, next to Fruity Pebbles. The only cons are it's availability and it's price.
Comment submitted: 7/14/2010 (#2418)
I know this sounds crazy, but if anyone is willing to ship a couple boxes to Toronto, it would make someone's birthday a memorable one. Or alternatively if anyone knows a site that will deliver to Canada, I'd live to know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance. :)

I live in the Bronx in New York and I had to go to New jersey just to find this cereal at a Walmart. I brought 4 boxes, each box was $2.50. I haven't had a bowl of this yummy cereal in 14 years, so i couldn't wait to get home and enjoy a bowl.

I would kill for just a spoonful of this stuff... jk. But seriously its that good!

I loved this cereal, they don't sell it anymore. I remember eating it on the carpet floor in front of the TV (slowly destroying my mind) and enjoying the only type of rice krispy treats that I will eat.

Earlier this week I sent Kellog's an e-mail telling them I'm disappointed that this cereal is not offered in more stores and asked for any reasoning behind this (low sales, refuse to cary product etc.) Here is the response (dated 5/22/09):
Thanks for letting us know about your difficulty in locating Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats cereal in different stores. We understand it is very frustrating when you cannot purchase a product you enjoy. While we strive to have all of our products widely available, retailers have limited shelf space and often discontinue items that sell at lower volumes.
We are sorry we are unable to find different retailers, besides Wal-Mart, in your area stocking this product. There are many online retailers who sell and ship products directly. These retailers are not affiliated directly with Kellogg Company and set their own prices and policies. Here is a site you may wish to try:
We would like to mention at one time this product had limited distribution, primarily for Wal-Mart. If you would like this product to be in a different store, you may ask a store manager if it is possible for them to order it.
We appreciate your loyalty to our company and invite you to try one of our many other great tasting products that are readily available in your area.

This was one of my favorite cereals as a kid, so I was excited to see it in a few stores in my area. However, I think something about it is different from the cereal available in the 90's, in the teal box? I can't quite put my finger on it.
Comment submitted: 4/30/2009 (#1635)
Havent been able to find the best cereal ever made in a long time. Simply the best tasting cereal ever. Jtrain

Found it today at the Walmart in Lebanon OR, haven't gotten to eat this cereal for at least 8 years. It was my favorite, the second I got home I had a huge bowl, couldn't wait for breakfast, I think I'll go buy the whole shelf tomorrow.

The best cereal out there. Now that I know its scarcity, I may have to buy out the supply at my local Wal-Mart.

Absolutely awesome cereal!! The A&P by my house carried it until about 6 months ago. Then it vanished. I dont understand why!? It seems so many people really like it. I cant imagine it being a bad seller...Very very odd.

I hate to let go of the secret but after reading everyones reviews, I had no choice. Amazon.com has it. I have been getting it delivered to my house for 5 years now. ENJOY!!

Found an entire shelf of this in Walmart today and I nearly wept -- I had been unable to find it since I was 10 or 11 years old. Words fail me...
Comment submitted: 3/16/2008 (#926)
I CANT FIND THEM ANYWHERE :(:(:(
Comment submitted: 3/8/2008 (#917)
This is about the best cereal ever made. Even better than Count Chocula with extra marshmallows. And that says a LOT. It wasn't until I tried this cereal that I realized how worthless and crappy regular Rice Crispies are. How foolish I was for all those years. Foolish!
Comment submitted: 3/4/2008 (#909)
If you live in the Richmond, Va area the Lombardy St. Kroger near the VCU campus has it! I haven't checked it recently but they usually have it all the time. I'm glad I have a place near me to get it.

I saved money by unwrapping a real treat and dipping it in milk.
Comment submitted: 2/20/2008 (#883)
I thought I was alone in this world when it came to remembering this cereal. Everyone i told had no clue... but alas, i live in stupid Canada where the stupid stores sell stupid cereals.
I guess I'm gonna buy it online, will be my first food buy on the web, very worth it though.
I wish i could change my rating from "awesome" to "orgasmic".
Comment submitted: 2/3/2008 (#860)
Rice Krispies Treats Cereal is the best cereal I have ever had. I haven't seen it in years and I would love to find some more. When people ask me what I want for my birthday I say... Rice Krispies Treats Cereal... It's that good!
Comment submitted: 1/6/2008 (#819)
Hello!! I've got good news... they sell Rice Krispie Treats Cereal online at Amazon.com.
I've ordered it a few times and it's still awesome :)
Comment submitted: 12/24/2007 (#804)
I live in Canada and I couldn't remember the name of this cereal. Every time I tried explaining it to people they thought I was nuts. I began to think so too. Then I was looking to find out if you can dye Rice Krispies without making them soggy for rice Krispie squares, and found it! If it's sold in the US, it needs to be sold here. It was the most amazing cereal ever. Seriously, if anyone ever finds this cereal in Canada, especially in Winnipeg Manitoba, email me. Dead serious. firstname.lastname@example.org

I love this cereal!! I cant find it anywhere! Its been years... Seriously, I want this back on the market~! Thank you!

Update: Today I just found Rice Krispies Treats Cereal in a Big Y Supermarket in Connecticut!
I commented to the staff (three of whom were working right there in the cereal aisle) that I was shocked they had the cereal in the store and I was overjoyed to say the least. They assured me that they were going to continue to carry the cereal.
It was priced at $3.49/box. I bought four boxes.
If you're having trouble finding this amazing cereal, try going to a Big Y supermarket if there is one near you. It's worth the trip. The cereal is so great as a snack or dessert, especially in the middle of summer!

I've been telling my boyfriend about this cereal I would eat when I was a kid called rice krispy treat cereal. He kept thinking I was mistaking it with rice krispy treats, but I knew I wasn't. Every time I go shopping I try to find it, but it's no where. They need to get it back. It's the only cereal that you just can't get tired of.

Three days ago I was at a Shaw's in Rhode Island, and they had Rice Krispies Treats cereal, marked down at $2.53/box. I bought four boxes. Right now I am on my last box, and today I visited three different Shaw's, a BJ's Wholesale Club, and a Price Chopper, (all in Massachusetts) and none of them had the cereal. I found this site through Google. I guess I'll go back to that one Shaw's in Rhode Island that had the cereal marked down (hopefully they still have it) and try my luck there! It's an amazing cereal and makes for a great snack. I like to pre-freeze the bowl in the freezer so it's cold and then add the cereal and I splurge and use whole milk with some half & half. It's not the healthiest thing out there but it is amazing.

This is my favorite cereal, I love it so much I have dreams about it, it's crazy. A couple years ago the tag said "discontinued" on the store shelf so I bought up like all 10 boxes they had. I thought the product had been canceled not just that the store stopped carrying it. I recently found out a nearby store (Meijer) carries it, less than 3 miles away!

They have it in some shaws stores. I would always get mine there but the one by me doesn't carry anymore. I bought from there about a month ago. So many people have never had it!!! The are deprived of its greatness
Comment submitted: 4/22/2007 (#432)
This is the most amazing cereal ever made. You have to hunt around for it, but it's worth the walk/drive/however else you get to the store. Checkout Jewel, Wegman's, A&P (those are a few stores I've had success with.
Comment submitted: 4/19/2007 (#428)
Wow that Kelloggs store locater is great... too bad it's US-only. I'm in Canada and remember loving this cereal as a child. It was my favorite. I'd love to try another box, if only for nostalgic purposes. Where might this be sold in Canada? Any ideas???
Comment submitted: 4/13/2007 (#418)
I love this cereal. I want it back sooooo bad. I'm craving it. I haven't had it in like 3 years. I'm dreaming about it!!!
Comment submitted: 3/10/2007 (#336)
Wow, I always thought I was alone, but apparently I'm not. I'm always sad that HEB doesn't carry Rice Krispies Treats cereal, by my Wal-mart does... so I occassionally have to suck it up and fight the long lines at Wally-world to buy it. It's just so good, so I guess it's worth it.
Comment submitted: 2/26/2007 (#302)

You can buy it from amazon.com grocery. I bought 12 boxes when they were having a sale like 2 or 3 days ago. :)

I love Rice Krispie Treats Cereal, and it really is sad that I can't find it anywhere. I checked discontinued Kellogg's brands - but it's not listed as one - maybe they only sell it in special stores.. This calls for a mission!
Comment submitted: 10/19/2006 (#78)
I LOVE this cereal! I wish they would still sell it!!!
Comment submitted: 10/16/2006 (#72)
For the past almost two years I can not seem to find my favorite cereal in the stores, which is the Rice Krispies Treats Cereal. Is it off the market?
Then when I was a kid, there was a cereal that I think was called Flinstone's marshmallow Pebbles, which was the best!, but I haven't seen in anywhere for the last 10 years. I want my favorite cereal back!
