Fruity Pebbles Crisps

There's a fun new food that we're going to be trying today! You're familiar with the Post Cereal Fruity Pebbles. Taking those Fruity Pebbles that we love, Post has turned them into Crisps! 


These Crisps really remind me of Pop-Chips, where it's a formed chip. Big thanks to my brother for sending these to me. I swear they get all the good stuff months before I ever see anything here in California. 
The back of the bag promises "Classic Fruity Pebbles Flavor, Bite Size Snacking Fun, No Milk Needed". 
Oh and there's also Cocoa Pebble Crisps!

Wow! The colors on there are so bold and bright! And I love that you can see all the different colors that are in the Fruity Pebbles cereal. Each Crisp is a circular concave disk. 

The Fruity Pebbles cereal is not even as bright as the Crisps, but maybe that's because they're covered in sugar. But they do delicious.

We'll start this taste test with the cereal. These have a great flavor, very similar to Froot Loops, but with a puffed rice base instead of a corn-flour base. It's pretty much froot flavored rice krispies. They're sweet and light. 

The Crisps are a little more dense. I guess they have to be in order to hold together as a chip. They are also a bit less sweet. 

Alli - It tastes like a chip, a chip, a chip, and then the cereal. 

Theresa is confirming the ingredients are the same. 

Both are made with Rice, but the next ingredient in the Crisps is Soybean Oil. In the cereal it's sugar. 
In 36 grams of cereal, there is 12 grams of sugar. 
In 36 grams of Crisps, there is 6.5 grams of sugar. So basically half the sugar of the cereal. 

Both together in a bowl. 

Given a choice between the two, everyone liked the cereal best. I had to put it away before it all gets eaten because I've still got some plans for it!

  1. Guess the original (cereal) is still the winner...thought the crisps would taste better than it did (but they are super colorful!). Now it makes me wonder if the Cocoa Pebbles Crisps will be disappointing, too (I was kind of eager to see that one make an appearance after its mention :-) ) Will have to see what the "plans" are for the remaining cereal. EOM

    1. It's been a while since I've actually had Fruity Pebbles. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy them!
