The latest viral fitness trend has people reaching for a surprising snack before their workouts: Rice Krispies Treats. 

The craze has recently taken off on TikTok, inspiring users to share their results (both the good and the bad) on social media. But experts say while reaching for a Rice Krispies Treat before your workout is actually not a horrible option, it may not be the best choice either. 

One of the most popular videos showcasing the trend was posted by TikTok user @Ko0maa who claims the snack gives you “an insane pump” at the gym. The clip goes on to show him besting his personal weight-lifting record after downing a pre-workout Rice Krispies Treat. The post garnered more than 175,000 views and 14,000 likes.

“Trust me when I say it, Rice Krispies gonna make you have the best workout,” Twitter user @s_terrazas insisted.
