I have a question. I assume the crisp rice cereal means rice krispie, but doesn't that make them awfully sweet?

I really liked these but it has a very strong cheddar flavor....too much for my family. I will try using mild cheddar next time.

These are really good, but an extremely intense flavor. I also froze a few of the logs and baked them later, and they still came out as good as the 1st time.
