Awesome! In one of our flyers today they are on sale for $3.99 which is unheard of for gluten-free cereal so I am going to stock up like mad! :P

I found some Honey Nut Chex at Walmart yesterday. $4.97 for a 390g box. There were only a few boxes, so I grabbed two of them.

For those in the Toronto area, I just saw Chex at Longo's, a family-owned 24-store regional chain.

For those in Atlantic Canada, Gluten Free Chex (rice or honey) are officially available at Atlantic Superstore :D $5.49 a box (yikes) but worth the treat!

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



Chex has been spotted by someone on the Calgary Celiac Community Facebook group in Coop North Hill location. Also, Udi's at Safeway (Westbrook Mall at least) is on sale for 4.89- sale ends tomorrow (found them today and stocked up on a whole TWO LOAVES!)

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!



I was so stunned when I was in IGA yesterday. There was a huge display!!!! I snapped a picture and posted it on facebook. I bought a teeny tiny box for 6.49 and tore it open as soon as I got home. I'm actually a little disappointed. It is soooo sweet! I'll try the rice ones next time, maybe they'll be a little less sweet. I'll be sure to stop in superstore and see if they have it for cheaper. Sadly the one near me does't have a "natural foods" aisle yet- the gluten free selection is very slim

I got Honey Nut Chex yesterday at Sobeys. I'm so happy that they finally sell it in Canada. I've been waiting to try for so long after seeing all the hype about it on the forum. And I must say, it's absolutely amazing! I've eaten almost half the box already :)

This may sound ridiculous, but I mix Corn Chex & Honey Nut Chex when I eat a bowl. Just the perfect amount of sweetness and crunch! :P
