When I was growing up, Neapolitan ice cream was a fierce competitor to vanilla and chocolate--and all those fancy flavors available now just didn't exist. But judging by supermarket freezers, it hasn't lost it's popularity one iota. If you're a devoted lover of Neapolitan, you'll enjoy this snazzy version of Rice Krispie Treats. If your family and friends haven't tried this combo of strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla, these sweet, crispy bars will introduce them to the variety of classic flavors that only Neapolitan can offer.
