Cocoa Krispies vs. Cocoa Pebbles

For years, I wondered why Post never made a Rice Krispies Treat equivalent using Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles cereal. But now I no longer need to wonder, thanks to Post and their new Cocoa Pebbles Treats and Fruity Pebbles Treats.

Sure I could’ve made my own Pebbles Treats or wait for a nearby bake sale, but it’s hard overcoming my laziness or facing the old ladies at the bake sales I go to, who are total sharks.

When comparing the two rice cereals, Pebbles has always been the better tasting one. For example, Cocoa Krispies tastes like Count Chocula sucked the cocoa out of Cocoa Pebbles.

Post brags about their Pebbles Treats being only 90 calories, but so are prepackaged Rice Krispies Treats. However, unlike Rice Krispies Treats, they have no high fructose corn syrup. Plus, they’re gluten free.

One bar of Fruity Pebbles Treats has 90 calories, 2 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 100 milligrams of sodium, 10 milligrams of potassium, 18 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 9 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein. While a bar of Cocoa Pebbles Treats has 90 calories, 2 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 110 milligrams of sodium, 25 milligrams of potassium, 18 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 9 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein.

    Damn, hydrogenated oils as I suspected. I’ll still try them, but I’m a bit let down by the inclusion.

    First of all best post title ever. Second, awesome captioning. Pebbles are clearly superior to Cocoa Krispies. I came to that conclusion when I was 9 and I stand by it.

      I was introduced to Cocoa Pebbles first, and when my parents tried to feed me Cocoa Krispies, I cried like an 8-year-old who didn’t get his way should.

    im not sure if you have seen the 2 new varities of post pebbles cereal. They have a cupcake flavor and a pebbles with lucky charm style marshmallows. I kind of have mixed emotions about them…..nothing compares to good ol’ fruity pebbles in my opinion. I would love to know what yall think about these 2 new pebbles, so if you got the time or money pleaseeee pick up a box! love yall!

    Just picked up a box and the Fruity Treats are amazing…they were on sale for only $2.00 at my WalMart!

    To be fair, the Rice Krispies Treats that have drizzle on them (like the Pebbles Treats both do) are 100 calories. I imagine that’s why they called out the fact that they have only 90. And the drizzle is a great addition to the treat!

    Big ups to my big sister for creating these. I’ve been eating the samples for a couple months and they’re amazing. My roomates and all my friends love them too.
