Has anyone ever tried using Cocoa or Fruity Pebbles to make sculptures instead of rice cereal?

I've used just about every cereal there is in RKTs. I made a cake once where I molded the RKTs in cake pans and made a big, 5 tiered caked with each of the layers being a different kind of cereal. They all tasted great and molded well.

That said, I think the smaller cereals, like rice crispies and fruity or cocoa pebbles produced the best texture for carving as they are more compact. fruit loops or cocoa puffs or anything large like that, tended to be too lumpy. And when carving, whole pieces would come off. The one that I did find beat RKT for both taste and texture was Captain Crunch. Even though the pieces are big, they are rough and really cling together and are easy to carve.
