Snap Costume Guide

Best Snap Halloween Costume Guide

Snap is the original mascot to appear in advertisements for the Kellogg sugary cereal, Rice Krispies. Quickly after, the other two characters named Crackle and Pop, were also created. They were created in the 1930s by an illustrator by the name of Vernon Grant and based off the original Rice Krispies’ radio ad. A fourth gnome was created in the 1950s, but he didn’t remain for long as he only appeared for a special marketing campaign.

Snap is the eldest of the three brothers and is good under pressure. He’s seen as the problem solver of the group and often has to keep his younger brothers in line. He wears a chef’s hat on top of his bright red hair and a red bandana around his neck. To get the look of Snap, you’re going to need a Yellow Jacket, Blue Pants, Red Bandana, Elf Ears, Chef Hat, and Brown Boots.

When the characters Snap, Crackle, and Pop were first created, they appeared as old gnomes. They had big noses and large ears that stuck out from their hats.

About Snap

Snap is one of the characters designed for the Kellogg cereal Rice Krispies. The cereal began to appear in the late 20s. In the early 1930s, the words Snap, Crackle, and Pop appeared on the cereal boxes. From those words came a radio ad and then the three iconic elf mascots. Illustrated by Vernon Grant, the characters could be seen on the boxes as early as 1933. The three little gnomish characters quickly rose to popularity and helped the cereal sell incredibly well. They became so popular that the Rolling Stones sang a song for one of their ads in the 1960s.

The three mascots are brothers who appear to be part of the team who help make the cereal. Snap, the eldest, is the one to come to if you have a problem, Crackle is the middle child and prankster, and Pop is the cheeky youngster. Over several decades their appearance changed to look younger and closer to elves.
