We open on a hapless subway rider, holding on to the hand railing as he gently sways. The car slams to a halt, his hand slips off the rail and he's on his butt. Solution? He takes a wonderfully sweet and extremely sticky Rice Krispies Treat snack bar, molds it into the palm of his hand, then grabs the railing again, providing a vice-like grip. Except it's a bit too tight. The next time the train comes to a jarring halt, our straphanger is on his rear again, except his arm pops off and stays stuck to the railing. We've learned not to question the fractured logic marketers employ when appealing to teen-agers, and this is yet another example. "Best when eaten," says the tag. Now we get it.
