    Wow, I had no idea Cocoa Krispies has been around since the 50's. Definitely one of my favorites.

    Another cereal that - almost - makes me want to break out the Schneider's 2%, just like the old days. Always liked!

    Kellogg's Cocoa Krispies cereal were WONDERFUL! I wish ALL the Kellogg's brands could come back in our lives. I know it would put a smile on so many faces (young or old).

    Stays crunchy in milk, but the flavor tends to wash off the cereal. So far, my favorite chocolate rice cereal is Aldi's Millville Cocoa Rice.

    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.

    Want the recipe for COCOA PEANUT LOGS? Go to the Google Images website, then type in "cocoa peanut logs" and click on the image that has the magazine for Cocoa Krispies with this recipe, write it down and follow it. This is for you... and a new generation of kids.
