What food is shaped like a cube?

I am wanting to create a 3D trail mix this week while learning about 3D shapes. I have all the shapes represented in edible form except for cubes. I have two cheese allergies, so cheese cubes are off limits. Any ideas??

Can you share the other solids you have? We just began this unit and would love to borrow your idea.

I am currently thinking on the cubes. Lucky me-I can use cheese cubes!

jello cubes
croutons
cake or brownies cut into cubes- some Little Debbie-type snacks might work
apples or pears

Sugar cubes
Ice Breaker Gum (I know it's a risk in school)
Cut jicama into a cube
Caramels - the ones individually wrapped in the candy sections

This sounds like a fun activity!!

Check in the dried fruits and fruit snacks and I think you'll find something. I know I've seen small cubes of dried pineapple at a local fruit stand.

bread croutons? They are often cube shaped and would go well in a trail mix. I think they have flavored ones too.

Ok Daisy, I'm curious, what did you get for pyramids, cylinders and rectangular prisms? This sounds like a great activity!

3D Shape Trail Mix

Okay, so I am going to use Bugles for cones, marshmallows for cylinders, and Kix cereal for spheres. Cubes were the only one I was unsure of. These four are the ones we need to teach where I am. Here is a sorting page for my trail mix idea.

After I posted I thought about it some more and came up with the following:
candy corn for pyramids
cut up slimjims for cylinders ( not quite healthy, but delicious imo)
chocolate chips for pyramids

I know the fullsize are more like flat squares but I think the unwrapped minis are cube shaped.
