Rice cake is like a giant cracker made out of puffed rice
. It's commonly advertised as a sort of health food as it is low in nearly all negative nutrition characteristics relative to its size. The term ‘rice cake’ can apply to an array of creations in Asian cuisine, so the common American
‘rice cake’ is referred to as ‘puffed rice cake’.
Rice cake is one of the most flavorless foods. It can be fun
due to its structural integrity and low weight. Sometimes rice cake has flavoring added, which is antithetical to its original intention of being bland
. Aside from ingestion, rice cake is also functional as a drink coaster.
