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.

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)
