I *loved* eating rice crispy treats when I was a kid, but I barely ever come across them now that I'm an adult. In particular, rarely do I find a box at Trader Joe's that has a giant picture of a favorite childhood treat on it next to the words "100 calories".
In this case Trader Joe's has succeeded in creating a really tasty, creamy marshmallow treat geared towards adults who are health conscious (organic, whole grain, and brown instead of white rice) but want a special treat that isn't completely unhealthy to eat every once in a while.
In the calorie department these bars are 100 calories and 2.5 grams of fat, and less than 1 gram of fiber (so 2 weight watchers points). In terms of ingredients the bars are totally gluten free and contain whole grain brown rice, organic vegan marshmallows, as well as a strong but yummy vanilla flavor. Like with all the foods I blog about, they do *not* contain high fructose corn syrup.
I'd love to know -- What was your most favorite childhood treat and do you still eat it now?
PS. For those of you that like to know the general size -- the bar is approximately 3 inches long and slightly wider than it looks in the picture on the box.
