In case you haven't noticed, Kelloggs now has two new flavors of Rice Krispies Treats: Peanut Butter Chocolate and Cocoa Flavored.

My husband said when he went to the grocery store last night, he noticed on the *Cocoa* flavored ones, it had a "may contain peanuts" warning. The *Original* ones do NOT have the warning.

I just e-mailed Kelloggs to ensure the safety of the *Original* flavored treats.

My son Liam loves Rice Krispies treats and so far has had no reactions. I hope the orginal continues to be peanut free. Please let us know what you find out.

The person I spoke with at Kelloggs said that the original Rice Krispies Treats (the plain ones) are manufactured on separate equipment from the 2 new products (peanut butter and cocoa).

Hi all,
I just received an e-mail response from the Kelloggs Consumer Affairs Department and this was their response:
"The Plain (reg) RKTSQ are made in the same plant as the RKTSQ Peanut Butter and RKTSQ Cocoa. The RKTSQ regular are made on their own dedicated line in a different part of the plant, whereas the RKTSQ Peanut Butter and Cocoa may share the same line. The peanuts do not come in separetly, but rather in a peanut butter-like form, so there is not a chance of dust particles in the air.
We appreciate your inquiry and hope this info will be useful as you make product selections appropriate for your family. You may wish to discuss this with your family physician or contact the Food Allergy Network for further assistance."
I feel much better knowing this info and being able to give my son the original Rice Krispies Treats Squares and not having to worry about cross-contamination. It is also nice to know they work with FAN and are allergy conscience.

Hi everyone:
I don't usually buy Rice Krispie treats as
they are much cheaper to make and can make a
whole pan of them in under 10 minutes (in the
microwave) I think they taste better too.
This would eliminate the worry as well, and you can add anything else that you would like to, to give them a different taste ie: chocolate chips, butterscotch etc.

Colleen, I remember the days of slumber parties and making rice krispie treats at 1:00 in the morning with my friends...oh the life of yester years! I need to go back to those days with my children and start making things from scratch instead of the "convenience" of store bought food. It's very easy to just pick up a box of Rice Krispies treats from the store and call it a day. Time to get back to "basics." I think we'll make a batch tonight; I'm sure the children will enjoy it!

Hi Connie:
Rice Krispie Treats are so easy for kids to help with too. I get one son to count the marshmallows and one to measure the cereal. Quick, easy and fun! Enjoy!

Hi Eileen,
Buy a box of the Rice Krispies Cereal and there should be a recipe on either the side or on the back of the cereal box. I haven't made them since junior high and I was all set to make a batch tonight but other things came up and I never got to the store to buy the cereal.

I don't know if anyone has competitively shopped the price, but I get the snack size bars of rice krispies treats for less than I can make them at home. This does seem to take away some of my guilt for buying versus making them at home.
Stay Safe, Debbie

Just a quick thought concerning making your own rice krispies. Make sure you check the chocolate chips...they are usually made in a choc. factory and hence nuts are usually there. I have seen pb. chips as well, which leads me to believe they could be made on the same line. I have checked in my area and the Bakers brand choc. chips are safe. I am from Ontario, Canada. I do not believe the Hershey choc. chips are. Does anyone know for sure??
