Taste test: We bought these knockoff Rice Krispies Treats because the design of the box was such a clear ripoff of the trade dress of Kellogg's-branded Rice Krispies Treats that we just couldn't resist. (See this one for comparison.) All they did was swap the words "Rice" and "Krispies" (and changed "Krispies" to "Crispy") as they kept the curved arrangement of those words just like the real thing. Both boxes also showed a single treat being pulled apart into perfect halves, with the marshmallow in between getting all stretchy (which really didn't happen like that for us in either case).
The box contained eight individually wrapped bricks in foil wrappers. I opened one and bit in to find a firm but chewy feel and a good taste, about the same as the official packaged Rice Krispies Treats (but probably inferior to most homemade ones you've had). Hard to resist eating two or three of these in one sitting.
