Where Can I Find Gluten Free Rice Krispies?

11 posts in this topic

I've looked at the grocery store in town and at Wal-mart neither had them. Does anyone know?

I have gotten them at Target and Hen House, maybe Walmart. They are usually with the regular cereal but not always next to the regular Krispies. Depends on the store.

I've seen them in walmart before, but again they were with the other cereals. Also, this was one of those really big walmarts (the biger supers) too.

Every mainstream grocery store here has them. They are always near the Rice Krispies but never exactly next to them. They are a main stream cereal, they are never with the health foods/gluten free foods here. I have never seen them in a health food store. I don't recall seeing them in Wal-Mart. It is also my personal opinion that they suck. Everyone should try them, but don't set your expectations too high and don't be terribly disappointed if you don't find them right away.

Since you seem to have some issues with finding things, I highly recommend internet shopping.

Are these 'real' rice krispie treats? If so, I've never seen them. My husband makes his own using gluten-free rice krispies and different flavored marshmallows. Cheap and makes more than what you would get on a box.

These are not treats, they are a gluten-free version of the Rice Krispies cereal, made from brown rice and without the added barley. Here, they are in the regular cereal section of most grocery stores. I enjoy them, but your taste may vary.

Not all the stores have them - it varies by geographic region. The Safeway, QFC, and Targets near me (in the Puget Sound, near Bellevue) have regular Kellog's Rice Crispies, but none of them carry the gluten free variety.

Rather annoying, really.

Our Martin's carries them. I know the wal mart and target around my way do not. If you have a Martin's or ukropts try them.

I called the company to see where to get them. I was told that no one within 50 miles of my zip code carried the gluten freeRice Krispies. I spoke to the manager at Kroger, and he said he would try to order them. No success yet. I guess it is a regional thing. Here (Mississippi) we often do not have access to products readily available in other areas.

My local Kroger used to sell them...but they don't anymore. Only place I can find them is Meijer (well, Walmart might have them, but I have a very hard time going in there). Normally Meijer is out of stock when I look for them (I'm thinking some local celiac has a homemade rice krispie treat addiction problem) :P Recently used a gluten-free puffed rice cereal I bought at Whole Foods to make rice krispie treats - not as good, but they did the trick!

If all else fails, and no stores nearby carry them, you could order them in bulk (4- packs) from the big online store known as Am --zon

(can't provide you a link as they spam the forum and it will not post)

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
