Then And Now #29 Rice Krispies

Kellogg's Rice Krispies!
Here they are in an advertisement from 1939. No Snap, Crackle and Pop (as characters) yet, back "Then":
But in 1950, there they are on the box:
And featured more prominently in this ad from 1953:
And the box "Now":
I must admit that, when I purchase them these days, it's usually because I want to make some of these (this ad from 1962):
And a Snap, Crackle, Pop to you!

Rice Krispy treats are one of my favorite foods in the whole wide world! When I was a kid, I loved the snap, crackle and pop. Twyla

Rice Krispy Treats are just so "American", I think! Lots of sweet memories of helping my Mom make them... and, of course, eating them... Mmmmmm! As always, your vast collection of Vintage Ads never ceases to delight me... Thanks very much for sharing them...
