“Rice cakes really satisfy my cravings for styrofoam”

Do rice cards taste unpleasant, like eating cardboard or styrofoam? “Rice cakes really satisfy my cravings for styrofoam” is a jocular one-liner that has been printed on an ecard. “Eating rice cakes is like eating flavored styrofoam. Tasty tasty styrofoam” was posted on Twitter on August 4, 2008. “Rice cakes really hit the spot when you’re craving a styrofoam disk” was posted on Twitter on November 22, 2009.
 
“Rice cakes really satisfy my cravings for styrofoam”—the usual form of the saying—was posted on Twitter on January 10, 2013.
     
“Rice cakes are edible styrofoam” is a related saying. “Facebook/Twitter removed my joke about rice cakes because they said it was tasteless,” “How can you tell if a rice cake is stale?,” “I can’t tell if this rice cake is stale or not. Because it’s a rice cake,” “I have a rice cake joke, but it’s tasteless,” “If you put peanut butter on a rice cake you can throw it farther” and “Whoever invented the rice cake had a pretty loose concept of ‘cake‘“ are other rice cake sayings.
       
     
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. A wide variety of rice cakes exist in many different cultures in which rice is eaten and are particularly prevalent in Japan. 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.
