Skratch Labs Crispy Rice Cake
A problem we keep hearing from athletes is, “I don’t look forward to eating my energy food.” So we asked ourselves: What’s the best food for fuelling that’s packed with energy but still easy to digest? That would be simple, high-quality rice. And what’s the best way to enjoy rice? As a crispy treat!
Treat yourself(!) to our Sport Crispy Rice Cake. It’s made with a blend of puffed rices and toasted grains, giving you energy-packed complex carbohydrates that feel light and digest easily, all held together by fluffy, heavenly marshmallow.
Each Sport Crispy Rice Cake gives you 180-190 calories, enough to extend most athletes’ endurance efforts by an hour.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I use Skratch Crispy?
Skratch Crispy Rice Cakes are great for eating immediately before or during a workout or cardio activity of 60 minutes or more. With 180-190 calories per cake that is mostly comprised of complex carbohydrates, this is enough fuel to power most endurance athletes for an additional 45-60 minutes. But use your body as a guide -- eat when you’re hungry (or your blood sugar is low), don’t when you’re not. Repeat if necessary.
Is this just another energy bar?
No. Most energy bars, like our Skratch Labs Anytime Energy Bar, have a balanced macronutrient profile of fat, fiber, protein, and carbs. This nutrient balance helps you feel full and satisfied and can be great for long and low intensity adventures.
In contrast, Skratch Labs Crispy Rice Cakes are mostly comprised of carbohydrates, with very little fat, fiber, and protein. This nutrient balance gives you an energy boost immediately before or during a higher intensity workout, much like our Skratch Labs Sport Energy Chews. With 180-190 calories per cake, this is enough fuel to power most endurance athletes for about an hour.
What makes this different from a traditional rice crispie?
Traditional rice crispie treats are made with just puffed white rice cereal and they're delicious, no doubt! But we wanted to make a crispy rice cake that is more suited for grown-ups and for athletes, so we came up with a blend of our favorite grains: brown rice, red rice, wild rice, and toasted quinoa. We also use a simpler marshmallow recipe that is lower sugar and leaves out the junk. This makes each bite of our Skratch Crispy Rice Cakes dynamic and flavourful -- an energy food that you actually want to eat!
What are the benefits of complex carbs in an energy food?
Everyone's body is different and reacts to macronutrients in its own unique way. What have you eaten recently and how many calories are you burning? In general, complex carbohydrates, like those found in rice, take longer to digest. By breaking down slowly, they provide steady energy into your body over a longer period and keep blood sugar levels steady, rather than a sudden spike, which may be caused by simpler carbohydrates.
