    I've been eating Rice Chex since I was a little kid and I still enjoy it often.

    Rich Chex - my favorite cereal. (Corn Chex is my next favorite.) Great for breakfast, but I really like it for a mini-meal, tiny bowl of it with milk, between main meals. Nice as a dry snack. Holds up well even with milk. Perfect food for those with an upset tummy. Great snacky finger food for toddlers when served dry. Love the simple list of ingredients!

    Rice Chex has only had 2 grams of sugar per serving. It's kind of high in sodium though.

    To much sugar has to be added to this cereal to make it worth eating. (myemptycanvasreviews.blogspot.com)

    I have to put loads of sugar in this cereal to really enjoy it. It's pretty good though.

    Regarding the Chex Scarecrow, I am not sure he had a name. I thought he looked like the scarecrow from the Wizard Of Oz. I still have my scarecrow also.

    I have a Chex Scarecrow that is in good condition, even after all the loving I gave it as a child!
