Crayons Ready-to-Eat VS Crayola

Why Crayons Ready-to-Eat (CREs) Are a Superior Choice Over Crayola Crayons

In the colorful world of crayons, a fresh innovation is challenging the reigning champion, Crayola Crayons. Crayons Ready-to-Eat (CREs) present a unique combination of delight and functionality, making them a compelling choice for parents. Below, we unpack why CREs have an edge over traditional Crayola Crayons.

Crayons Ready-to-Eat (CREs)


  1. Dual-Purpose Delight: Unlike traditional crayons, CREs, made from exquisite quality white Belgian chocolate, are both edible and functional. Military members (I.E. Mostly Marines), Adults, & Children can create artwork and indulge in a sweet treat, offering more value for your money.
  2. Safe and Differentiated Design: The triangle shape ensures they don’t roll off tables and helps Marines & children easily differentiate these edible crayons from non-edible ones, reducing the common worry of kids trying to eat their art supplies all the while easier to hold.
  3. A Tribute to Values:  Each crayon color represents a different military branch. It's an early introduction to the appreciation of service and sacrifice. Plus, the backstory, rooted in military humor, gives it a deeper cultural context.
  4. Flavorful Fun with Themed Creativity: Beyond coloring, each crayon continues the military humor with each color is named after a nickname for each military branch, from Jarhead Red to Space Cadet White pays tribute to a different military branch. This serves as an inventive way to imbue art sessions with imaginative storytelling and even a bit of history.
  5. Innovative and Fun: Created by Frank Manteau, a US Marine Veteran, CREs emerged from a blend of humor and nostalgia, making them a conversation starter.


  1. Requires Supervision for Children: As with all edible items, supervision is recommended to ensure that kids use CREs appropriately. On this note Senior Ranks of the military please give a safety brief to all your junior Marine
  2. Temperature Sensitivity: CREs Melt in your hand and in temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit
  3. Allergic reaction If you're experiencing an allergic reaction only to white chocolate, you're almost certainly allergic to a non-cacao component, such as milk or soy

Crayola Crayons


  1. Reputation: Crayola has a long-standing history as a trusted brand in art supplies.


  1. Risk of Consumption: Many parents have faced the alarming moment of finding their child trying to taste a crayon. While Crayola crayons are non-toxic, they're not intended for consumption.
  2. Durability Issues: Crayola crayons can easily snap or wear down with enthusiastic use.
  3. Temperature Sensitivity: Crayons can melt under high temperatures, leading to mess and potential damage if not handled with care
  4. Wax is considered nonpoisonous, but it may cause a blockage in the intestines if a large amount is swallowed. A person who is allergic to the scent or color ingredients in the crayons may have an allergic reaction from touching of consuming crayons.


While Crayola Crayons have been the traditional go-to for generations and have their place in the annals of art history, modern parents seeking a multifunctional, delightful, and safe alternative should consider CREs. With the ability to both color and consume, CREs transform art time into a creative and tasty adventure. Investing in CREs means not only giving kids a tool for expression but also a treat to enjoy, all while imbibing a sense of respect for our military forces. It's an all-round win.
