Taste test: This large package contained 12 large cylinder-shaped pieces made from puffed-up rice. They were quite good, with a strong crunch and a taste similar to Corn Pops cereal (despite being a rice product). They were a lot like the same company's Rice Cracker, but they did call this one a Cookie, and the ingredients were a bit different.
There were a couple of downsides here. The pieces were sticky — sticky to each other, making it hard to get one out of the package, and sticky to the fingers, making for some sticky hands. They also tended to make a mess while eating a stick, as pieces of rice went flying off in all directions. But still, when we shared them around at a bar, everyone who tried a piece (or a piece of a piece, as they were plenty big) loved them!
