A question of size

Hypothetically, if you were to, say, make a large pan of Rice Krispie squares using the delicious new Vanilla Rice Krispies



is it more guilt inducing to eat one very exceedingly large piece, or several moderate pieces?

Personally I think that there are less calories in one piece than in many pieces. On the other hand, there are the calories that get used in cutting the squares into smaller pieces.

Right?

Hypothetically of course.

Answers to your burning questions coming up. I'm still taking questions... go on, you know you want to.

Whew, that is one yummy cereal!

We first ate it in the US... then it arrived in Canada. Yay!

There are no calories in crumbs so smash the tray and eat them all!

Less calories in the small chunks due to increased arm work reaching for the plate multiple times.

much better to go for the big square and walk away.

Much better to eat several small pieces -- shows at least you are trying.

OMG, that sounds SOOOO good! I can't answer you because I'm too busy drooling...

From what I understand, if you make them with miniature marshmallows rather than full size marshmallows, they are only 1/4 of the calories. If that's the case, then you can eat 4 large pieces.

I made a tray of those myself just yesterday!!! We are sooooo connected! I don't know about the calorie issue, but I perfer small pieces with many visits to the tray - kind of like eating Timbits. It just feels like less food.

I haven't seen these vanilla ones--I'm with s.m., off to the store soon to see if WE have those. Then I'll eat a whole pan.
