    Everything You Wanted To Know......

    Everything You Wanted To Know......

    ....... about Rice Crispies.

    Why Rice Krispies Go Snap, Crackle, Pop!


    So why DO Rice Krispies sing out "snap, crackle, pop" when you pour milk on them? Using all the tools and inventiveness of science, a food scientist from the University of Minnesota has figured it out. LiveScience.com reports the reality is that no one really knows why your Rice Krispies talk to you, and face it, no one is likely to fund such a study. A lack of money didn't stop Labuza who turned into a cereal scientist to try to figure out the mystery of snap, crackle and pop. He thinks he has solved it.

    You're too bleary-eyed first thing in the morning to notice this, but a single Rice Krispie is a lot like a piece of glass. If you crack it, it will break into lots of pieces, and if you had the inclination you could actually put those pieces back together again, reports LiveScience.com.

    Why is Rice Krispies like glass? Credit the high temperatures used to make the cereal. During cooking, exceptionally strong bonds are formed that hold the rice's starch molecules together. It's during this cooking process that each piece of rice expands and a network of air-filled caves and tunnels form inside, Labuza told LiveScience.com writer Corey Binns.

    Pour on the milk and as it flows into the crispy kernel, the milk puts pressure on the air inside those caves and tunnels and pushes the air around. The air just keeps moving around against the walls of each of those little pockets until they finally shatter like glass at which point they emit the familiar snap, crackle and pop. Look closely and you can also see tiny air bubbles escaping to the surface. Once the milk is fully absorbed into the rice kernels and the air pockets have all burst, your cereal will get very quiet. And soggy.

    Did you know you can pop rice in a pan like popcorn?

    With my luck, likely, and probably break a window, kill a passerby, cause a major traffic accident, etc.

    So uh when the rice pops, like popcorn, what does it make?

    Good Lord Sheriff, don't let the federal government know about this. They will fund a study to the tune of about $10,000,000,000 to dispute what you are saying
