Que dicen los Rice Krispies?

The sounds of global Rice Krispies:

English: "Snap! Crackle! Pop!"

French: "Cric! Crac! Croc!"

Spanish: "Pim! Pum! Pam!"

German: "Knisper! Knasper! Knusper!"

Danish: "Piff! Paff! Puff!"

Finnish: "Riks! Raks! Poks!"

Dutch: "Pif! Paf! Pof!"

Afrikaans: "Knap! Knaetter! Knak!"

Because enquiring minds need to know.

Afrikaans is a deft touch. Next time I'm panting across the veldt in search of crunchy breakfast sustenance, I can successfully, onomatopoeically make myself understood to the gringo bokke storekeeper. All is well.
