Baslow wants to know: What is difference in meaning between the words "crisp" and "crispy"? If there is no difference in meaning can they be used interchangeably? Consider these contexts::

1) He paid for the groceries with several ___________, new ten-dollar bills.
2) Blotto Cereal Flakes stay _____________ in milk.
3) Blotto Cereal Flakes are sweet and ____________.
4) He bit into a _____________ apple.

What's the rule here? Is there a rule here?
