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

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.)

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.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
