Until Kelloggs does a cost-benefit analysis that shows how having a gluten-free product will make them money they aren't going to do it is my bet.

General Mills is smart and forward thinking...I saw an article in, hmmm, was it the Wall Street Journal (?) in the last few months that laid out why GM is paying attention to the gluten-free market and changing the ingredients of some products and for others just updating labels. GM did their own research and found that of the population that is eating gluten-free about 80% HAVE TO eat gluten-free for medical reasons and will do so FOR LIFE. GM recognized that if they can build a loyal customer base with that population by having quality products and labels we can trust they will make $$ in the long term. They haven't rushed into it and are doing a lot of focus groups to make sure that the products they tinker with ingredient-wise still taste the same or close enough so gluten eaters will continue to eat them! I know I called GM at one point asking about an ingredient label and when the customer service rep found out I had questions about gluten due to having Celiac Disease she asked if I'd like to participate in any focus groups, try out new products, etc. I was stunned. I couldn't commit to it at the time but after our move is completed this summer I may just call them back and see if they still need participants!

I agree! If they could do it with the Rice Kripsies, why not the Corn Flakes?

I miss Corn Flakes. :(

I got hooked on the gluten-free Rice Krispies. I can make Krispy Treats and use them as bread crumbs in meatballs, and salmon patties. I think I go through at least 2 boxes a week?
My Kroger's has decided to quit cayying them. They're now at Bog Lots. I hope they don't stop making them. If they do..they probably won't bother tinkering with the Corn Flakes? :(

I doubt they will stop make the Rice Krispies, but I do not like them, at least not for a bowl of cereal, I used the the stale almost full box as crumbs for a coating of chicken. That was pretty good. But I do miss Corn Flakes too and Frosted Flakes. Still miss the Rice Krispies.

Chex Cereal cinnamon flavor is a lot like Cinnamon Toast Crunch --one of my favorites for snacking out of the box. If you have not had Cinnamon Toast Crunch for a while you will probably just love the Chex cinnamon flavor.
Chex makes 3 or 4 flavors of cereal that are gluten free.

Frosted Flakes are sickly anyways, I don't miss them at all :unsure:

But there's no replacement for Corn Flakes. Even the Nature's Path Honey'd Corn Flake imitators is no match to the real thing!
