It’s All About the Crispies

One of everyone’s favorite easy-to-make and easy-to-enjoy snacks is the Rice Krispie Treat. Clearly Disney understands this phenomenon and has capitalized on it. These days, Disney’s customized “crisped rice treats” seem to have become as ubiquitous as any other classic Disney parks treat.

So, being the Disney Food Blog, I was just waiting until I had enough pics to really do them justice. What’s incredible is the sheer variety of things Disney has done with these little snap-crackle-pop puffed rice pieces! “Crisped Rice” + Marshmallow + Butter + Imagineers = big bucks, I’d imagine!

I’d like to share with you some of my favorite “crisped rice treats” in the Disney parks, but first of all, here’s a little tip: Did you know that you can watch Disney’s Confectioners create these goodies? You can! Just head to the Main Street Confectionery in Disney World, where the talented Cast Members are always whipping up something special. Sometimes you’ll see them making caramel apples or fudge, but they’re often churning up some of your favorite light-as-air crispie treats as well!
