Halacha - your psak on sugar crisp
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

First of all I neither wrote this psak nor did I see it before you brought it to my attention. However Reb Moshe does not write that it should not be eaten outside of a bread meal, rather he acknowledges that Sugar Crisps is the type of food that people typically do not eat with bread and seems to accept this situation as a given. He does seem to hold that mezonos is not the correct beracha, and one is only yotzai because mezonos is also an all-inclusive beracha similar to shehakol. In my humble opinion anyone who says mezonos on rice should also say mezonos on Sugar Crisps for reasons too involved to explain in this forum, but I certainly agree with you that ideally it should be covered by making berachos on other foods that are more certain.
