Rice Crispy Cakes or Buns?

Let’s ask Google:

  1. Rice Crispy Cake – 75 results
  2. Rice Crispy Bun – 17 results

That’s what the Internet says and I agree. ‘nuf said!

For completeness, it should be noted that

  1. It’s Kelloggs Rice Krispies but that name is trademarked as Andy just reminded me so people are more likely to spell it with a C in their cookery books and sites lest the lawyers descend on them!
  2. Kelloggs avoid the bun and cake controversy completely by calling them Rice Krispies Treats. Cowards!

Conversation on #linux leads to some confusion. I wonder if I should quote some of it. The Rice Krispies cakes and buns Irish people refer to are simply made of Rice Krispies and melted chocolate. No yucky marshallow, or whatever else. Chocolate all the way. Yum!
