Wikipedia: Rice cake
A rice cake may be any kind of food item made from rice that has been shaped, condensed, or otherwise combined into a single object that has also been sweetened. A wide variety of rice cakes exist in many different cultures in which rice is eaten, and are particularly prevalent in Asia. Common variations include cakes made with rice flour, those made from ground rice, and those made from whole grains of rice compressed together or combined with some other binding substance.

The most redeeming quality of a rice cake I think is that it tastes the same whether it’s fresh or stale.

When I take my first bite into a rice cake, I’m always unsure if it’s stale, or that is just how they taste
