For many of us, crisp rice treats bring back a flood of childhood memories. Mom made them just to see your happy smile – but no longer does she have to worry about their nutritional value. These treats have added nutrients due to the addition of peanut butter, crispy brown cereal and Klean Isolate™, without all the butter and white rice found in typical crispy treats. Pack a crispy treat for a long bike ride or hike to allow you to go the distance.
