Thanks for the info about how to use rice cakes other than with a spread like almond butter (which is how we eat them.)

I made the molasses recipe (cracker jack) for my hubby yesterday, and he loved it.

Just love the ideas this forum generates. Keep it coming!!!

makes a fast, easy snack. I like tahini or almond butter.  I used to put a little rice syrup, but these days, I don't use sweeteners much. Not too many rice cakes for me, as can be a bit drying once inside the system.

Spring, you could eat four in one day w/no negative reaction?  Wow, wish that were me!  Of course I can't eat them with just p.b. or almond butter.  I have to slather on the jam (compliant kind, of course! ha-ha)

They are a Neutral for me so I minimize my servings to aid in getting rid of this auto-immune/inflamatory response within me.  I find that, even if I eat my beneficial grains over the 3 per day recommendation, my finger suffers from increased stiffness and pain.

Enjoy!

So cute....!    Wonder if prizes are still in Cracker Jack boxes.  My favorite thing in the box was
always the peanuts....I never felt there was enough.  When I make them, I'm very generous
with the peanuts.

As for eating rice cakes with just peanut butter, can't do it either.  I need jam.  But the best way
ever to eat pnb is straight out of the jar right off a spoon   

I particularly love toasted rice cakes with ghee. Then I don't need any jam.

BTW, Lundberg makes some really yummy varieties of rice cakes.  Presently I'm in love with the
tamari/seaweed.

Didn't realize there were so many different varieties. Our HFS only carries 3.

Strangely enough, the four of them didn't bother me in the least, quite the reverse!! Had another one this morning for a snack. As for the jam, I just used the least smear with the peanut butter. I don't like things very sweet. This snack reminds me of the half bagel with fat free cream cheese I ate for snacks years ago. I lost 25 pounds doing that. But that was over 20 years ago - couldn't get away with that now! The wheat would probably blow me up like a balloon, and the junkie toxins in the fat free cream cheese would finish me off.

Yes, the peanuts were the "prize" to me, too, in Cracker Jacks!

I have looked at several varieties of Lundberg rice cakes and tried some of them in the past, but none seemed to appeal to me. Using your suggestion to toast them and then adding my own flavors, etc., suits me just fine for now.

Another subject, but I remember one of the few times I really got a bad case of nausea when I was a child was after eating one too many popcorn balls! I certainly don't wonder at that now since corn is such an abomination for my system!

I toast my rice cakes by putting a few on a rack in a preheated 325 degree oven but then turn off the oven.  So they sit there drying out, getting super crunch-i-fied, and this way, they aren't getting color. So, while still hot, the ghee melts quickly. Very pop-corn-y tasting.

Funny, but rice cakes weren't on my radar screen at all until I started reading this thread. I had a package unopened for quite a few weeks sitting in my pantry and wondered if they had gone stale already from all our high humidity..I find the shelf life of rice cakes isn't very long in summer...
but toasting totally revived them.

My toaster is doing a great job so far on these older rice cakes at a lower setting. (When I tried it before, I had the setting too high, and they immediately went from light to black!) These things are MONTHS old and taste great, and we have been literally wading in humidity nearly the whole summer!!! I suppose that doesn't matter so much, though, with A/C. Not even a slight taste of being rancid to this supertaster! It will be interesting to see how different the fresh ones I bought taste!   Something else I notice with the toasting is that they don't fall apart as badly, which definitely turned me off before. No one wants a shower of crumbs trying to eat a snack!

I wonder how many of these were swallowed over the years.

http://superradnow.wordpress.com/2011/07/25/cracker-jack-prizes-are-lame/

I've probably owned all of the plastic ones and the tattoos. The whistle was the a great prize, and the baby bottle was like "oh, RATS!"

No matter which treats we selected at the candy counter, Cracker Jacks was always one of them. The object was to carry the prize around in your pocket for a few days ( or until you got a new one) and show it to everyone you saw. Sometimes they were traded. The only reason I can imagine that we coveted them so, was that they were a prize, a surprize, and mine.

Of course, the Cracker Jack was the real prize. Wasn't there at one point a choice of with or without peanuts? Just a vague memory of this.

Hmmm..... Was there ever a time where Cracker Jacks didn't have peanuts?  I always remember peanuts. And don't remember choices with or without.  Just one product.

Here's some vintage Cracker Jack prizes being sold on ebay.  WOW....!

For people who are trying to find a way to eat blackstrap molasses, I think it's really good lightly drizzled on the top of the nut butter as an alternative to jam.  Of course, I like the taste of B. molasses, so maybe it's not for everyone!  

I particularly love toasted rice cakes with ghee. Then I don't need any jam.

Oh, me too!  Ghee . . mmmmmmm!

BTW, Lundberg makes some really yummy varieties of rice cakes.  

I love the Lundberg Sweet Mochi Rice Cakes.

Hmmmm.  Interesting to note that Chloe and I are Teachers and you and Explorer.... I wonder if all Teacher types are prone to liking sweets more?

New product, full of sugars. Probably GMO corn... No peanuts.  So many peanut allergies in kids these days probably necessitated creating peanut-less products.
