Is Chex cereal not available in Canada or is it just my small city that doesn't have it. I remember eating it as a kid but never thought about it until my son was diagnosed and everyone in the US is talking about Chex cereal!

Is there any way we can petition them to sell it here too?? LOL!

What other "normal" cereals are there in Canada that are gluten-free? And by normal, I mean the usual stuff on the shelf, not the super expensive organic, sold labelled gluten-free cereal. I have yet to find one so I'm curious if there are some out there.

Thanks
Kathy, mom to Jakob, type 1 diabetes + celiac

To the best of my knowledge, Chex cereals are not sold in Canada. I remember them from my childhood, but that was decades ago. I certainly haven't seen them around here, and Toronto is as big a city as Canada has.

Chex are not sold in Canada. After 5 years, I haven't found a "regular" cereal sold in Canada.

I did, however, see a couple of boxes of Chex once at the Sobey's on Clarke street in Vaughn Ontario.

All my friends and family bring them back from the US for us when they're travelling. If you do get across the border stock up on Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles. ("regular" cereal not available in Canada.)

Thank you for answering all the questions I never thought to ask.

Can you order them on Amazon? You'd probably have to order cases of six at a time, but maybe you could split them with someone else, or just, you know, stock up?

Sigh.......I guess we'll just have to make a side trip into Bellingham for a "food stock-up" while down in Vancouver for our official "diagnosis" (scope/biopsy). I was hoping to avoid it b/c I have no control when it comes to shopping (we're a little deprived here in Prince Rupert, BC) and the $ is good and there are sooooooooooo many factory outlets along the way YIKES!! Thanks for the info and the tip on the Fruity Pebbles :)
I wonder what the border guards will think when we open up our rooftop carrier and it's FULL of Chex cereal LOL! Is there a limit to the amount of food you can bring back?

Good, doesn't look like Chex cereal is limited in any way! :D
We're going to have a rooftop carrier FULL of Chex cereal to supply my son for the year (or 6 months the way he eats!)

Yes! It's here now! I saw it and bought it for the first time a couple weeks ago. I think it's new to Canada, so you may need to look around a bit still.

There is another recent discussion about Chex. Click here.

They have been sighted in a number of Canadian stores recently.
