Chex Cereal - Canada?
0

10 posts in this topic

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

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.)

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.

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
    • Rum is naturally gluten free, but in cases where it is flavored, spiced, etc. you have to be careful where they might add a malt in the natural flavorings. I been using Admiral Nelsons coconut rums in cooking for finishing off stir frys, and adding a bit of flavor to caramelized ingredients for a few years now, I have never had issues with those. As for the Morgan, I would be careful with the spiced version as they might use a malt based ingredient in it. I did a bit of research and like you found no conclusive evidence to if it contains gluten or not. The plain rum from them is listed on many and been tested by several groups and has come up gluten free. On a side note if your a celiac or have intestinal damage I would avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. I personally only use it in cooking.
    • Hi, It seems they advertise it as a malt beverage.  Malt is made from barley normally, so it would not be gluten-free.  Unless they specify the malt is corn malt, it is always assumed to be barley malt per FDA labeling regs.
