For the last while, I've had a craving for Rice Krispie Treats. So, hey, I'm a grownup, I have $5, my son occasionally has guests over to give me a veneer of an excuse that I'm making them for kids, I went ahead and made them. Using good traditional housewife methodology, I used the recipe on the side of the cereal box.

Much to my shock, they were meh. Maybe Rice Krispie Treats just aren't very good now that I am a grownup. This would make me sad -- after all, I still like Marshmallow Peeps more than is legally allowed in most states -- but so be it. But then my son also was lukewarm on them, which surprised me.

But I had a lot of cereal left, and we've got a kid-guest tonight. So I made them again, but this time I happened to look at the recipe on the marshmallow bag. It's got significantly more butter. I made them this way, and you know what? They're as good as I remembered.

So, hey, Kellogg's: why are you changing the recipe and pretending it's the "Original"? For health reasons? Who the hell eats Rice Krispie Treats for their health?

If I make them again, I'm making them with lots of butter. And perhaps, as someone on the Internet suggests, dipping them briefly in 151 rum before eating them. See if you can stop me.

ETA OH HAI GUYS I JUST TRIED THIS SOAKING IN RUM THING AND OMG I LOVE YOU RANDOM INTERNET TIPSTER THIS IS LIKE RICE KRISPIE FRUITCAKE.
