I'm pretty sure the answer is no, I know they have oats and corn, but I also think they have malt, which makes them a no no.

It seems as tho they are gluten-free I know they are made from rice. I eat them and tolerate them well. I have read the label and cannot think of anything in them that we can't have, I could be wrong (I haven't had them in a couple of weeks and do not have a box on hand). I will look the next time I go to the grocery sotre.

I did check the last time I was at the store(since I was concerned that someone posted they were eating Fruity Pebbles daily, possibly it was Hillary), and I couldn't find anything on the label that would indicate they were not gluten-free. But someone should contact the manufacturer, it might be an issue of cross-contamination that makes them possibly not gluten-free. I don't buy/eat them so I am not sure. I think they are made by POST, so maybe checking to see if they have any gluten-free cereals? I have not found them on any of my current updated gluten-free food lists.

God bless,

Hi!
Post Cereals are a part of Kraft. If you go to Kraftfoods.com and search for gluten-free they explain their policy. They will not hide any gluten. Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free. I love companies like Kraft and ConAgra!

Hi Hillary,

I also found that Kraft.foods always list gluten containing ingredients on their labels. Both Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles are on manyGF lists and even on the handout I was given at Children's Hospital of Phila. I combine them with Nature's Path Organic Crsipy Rice for rice krispie treats. My daughter says they are too sweet with just the Pebbles.

Hi Everyone!!!!! I just found a cereal make by "Shoprite". It is called Scrunchy Puffed Corn Sweetened popped- up Corn Cereal. It is supposed to be simular to Kellogg's Corn Pops (which is now adding gluten, so be careful to read each box)
I Called Shoprite and was told that Scrunchy Puffed Corn cereal IS gluten-free!!! I'm very excited. Hope my son likes them.
