Wisconsin Students Claim Rice Krispies Treat Record

April 13, 2015

While the 12,000-pound treat exceeds the previous record of about 10,000 pounds, it falls short of the original 15,000-pound goal, which inspired the name for the student group, Project Freshman 15,000 -- also a play on the "freshman 15" weight gain.
