They probably are safe to eat as it is only a recommended best before however I'm pretty sure selling food past it's best before date is against the law!

Best Before and Use By are two totally different things.
Best before = safe to eat after this date, just might be a bit stale or lost some flavour/texture etc
Use by = not safe to eat after this date, will have gone off, might increase risk of food poisoning etc.
I think the legal thing you're on about applies to use by dates only.

Rice crispies will be fine.

They'll stay good through nuclear fallout. It would be worrying if they weren't delicious.
