Sometimes just a little treat is the bright spot to the day and Rice Krispies Treats Mini Squares are the perfect choice going into summertime. Everyone will be excited to see that big treat box on the pantry shelf. The only question on the table is which flavor will you eat first?
A recent food trend has been the bringing back nostalgic food and flavors. For many people, Neapolitan Ice Cream is that classic ice cream. As mom opened the ice cream box, the requests would fly. Extra chocolate please or make sure that the vanilla goes next to the strawberry. When you couldn’t decide on a single flavor, Neapolitan ice cream offered all of them.
Building on that idea of Neapolitan ice cream, the new Rice Krispies Treat Mini Squares box offers three flavors in a single box. The 64-count box offers 34 original flavor, 15 chocolate and 15 strawberry.
While the variety option is delightful, some parents might have to put a few rules in place when that box is first opened. If dad never gets at least one chocolate Rice Krispies Treat, it might not make for a happy summer.
In addition, the mini size is perfect for summer snacking. As any parent can appreciate, kids seem to be “starving” all summer long. The smaller size allows everyone to satisfy that sweet craving without overindulging?
Are Rice Krispies Treats Strawberry flavor back on store shelves?
Strawberries and summer are a classic pairing and many people will be excited to see that Rice Krispies Strawberry flavor is back on the shelf. That strawberry marshmallow flavored treat is berry-delicious.
Putting the silly puns aside, the strawberry is a wonderful addition to the line-up. Without out being too sweet, it offers that fruity note which is quite cravable. While many people will grab a package and enjoy, the flavor lends itself to semi-homemade desserts.
For example, consider adding some fresh strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream for a new take on a strawberry shortcake. Or, use the treat in place of a cookie for an ice cream sandwich. The dessert options are plentiful.
The Mini Treat Squares variety box has a suggested retail price of $10.79. The Strawberry flavor is available in a 8-count box with a suggested retail price of $3.39 and a 16-count box with a suggested retail price $5.49.
