I have never seen any Chex in Canada (let alone gluten-free Chex) and today while I was grocery shopping, there was a whole stack of gluten-free Chex - regular and honey something. Wow. We seem so behind the times here in Canada when it comes to gluten-free products! This store is also now stocking Lara Bars in 3 flavours! I had to buy a few to see what all the fuss is about, although they are $2 each. The lime one is quite good but to be quite honest not as spectacular as I had expected. Perhaps the other flavours will be better! :) I can see how they will come in handy for traveling, though (long drives, flights, airport layovers and so on).

The Lara bars are best slightly warmed from sitting in the car while you're busy doing something else. ;)

Good to know. We do not have a membership as the nearest Costco is 3 hours' drive from here but maybe it is something we should look into. Do they carry Udi products? Our bread is $7.49 per loaf here.

Yes! I've been waiting for the Chex!

Lara bars are at Costco in boxes of 12 bars (4 each of 3 flavours - apple, key lime, peanut butter). I don't remember the exact price for the box, but it's cheaper than buying them separately at the grocery store. They are located in the candy aisle for some reason.

My Costco doesn't have Udi's but they do carry Rudi's, frozen. Two loaves for $6.00 and something -- $6.89 maybe? -- which makes each one about as expensive as a loaf of regular bread! I was so thrilled when I discovered that!

That is a very good price! I look forward to checking this out.

Had my Chex this morning and it is very good. It is definitely the best gluten-free cereal (by far) I have ever tried. I have never had Chex before - when we visit the US we generally don't have cereal! :P

Which store? I haven't seem them in Calgary yet.

Super Store (Loblaws). Believe me, I was stunned to see them. I actually got tears in my eyes because I was that astounded! :) Maybe I should go and grab 20 boxes to ensure they continue selling them here! They were not in the regular cereal section nor where they in the gluten-free section - in between those aisles at the very end (teaser aisle). At $5.99 they are far cheaper than the gluten-free cereals in our store. Another bonus!
