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.
