Help!

I can't find the President's Choice Too Good To Be True Ancient Grains Corn Flakes anymore :o ! My Superstore hasn't had them the last 5 times I've been there (luckily, I buy 6 boxes at a time and still have one left). The other nearest Superstore doesn't even have a space on their shelf for them. Does anyone know if they are discontinuing this product? I can't get a straight answer from anyone and I'm still trying to move higher up the mucky-muck chain until I can find someone who knows something.

Do you guys still have them at your Superstores? Or Extra Foods or Loblaws?

There were some in Extra Foods the last time I was in (about 3 weeks ago). Have you tried the Nature's Path honey corn flakes, Save On Foods should have those.

In the short time that I have been gluten-free, my Superstore has never had that item. I have to buy the Nature's Path ones. Superstore does have some gluten-free corn puffs though.

Linda,

Nope. They weren't there. They had EnviroKids and Nature Path, but that's all.....

Oh, of course, they had they own Organics Corn Pops that are gluten free.....

Thanks for checking, everyone. Ty doesn't like the gluten-free corn pops. He did eat the whole box of Superstore PC corn pops, but we still have a half box of the Envirokids corn pops. I found some kind of organic corn flakes in a giant green and clear bag at Safeway. Nature Valley or Nature's Path or something Nature-y. The Superstore TGTBT corn flakes were tasty AND reasonably priced, so that's why I'm on a quest. I did manage to find an email address, so I emailed them, we'll see what they say.

Envirokids also has Koala Crips which are chocolate rice crispy type cereal, also gluten free. The Natures Path (Enviro kids) Cheetah and Koala rice bars are also gluten free, and very good.

I actually don't eat cereal for breakfast so I wouldn't know. When I do eat cereal, I eat the Enviro Kidz gluten free stuff and I like that. Is there anything else that he likes if you can't find it?

How about,

Gluten free Waffles (I find these in the health food section) with syrup

Toasted Kinnikinnick bread with peanut butter or jam

Scrambled eggs and bacon

Fruit Smoothies

Omelets

Fruit salad

Fruit on tray like, watermelon, bananas, apples, honey dew melon, oranges, ect.

Thanks all.

He is (how can I put this politely?) very SELECTIVE. I did buy some other kind of gluten-free corn flakes, but I liked the TGTBT because they were reasonably priced. He's always been a cereal eater. He absolutely did not like the Envirokids corn pops, but likes the "rice krispie bars" -chocolate only. He has never liked pancakes or waffles, and now I guess we know why. He often has a hard-boiled egg for lunch, so I don't really want to give him eggs for breakfast, too. I may try some gluten-free pancakes to see how he likes them.

Anyone had any luck with freezing pancakes and heating them in the oven, or toasting them later?

I'll cut him some slack, he's only six, and he's being a real champ about going gluten-free.

I've made the Celimix pancakes to which I have added blueberries or other frozen fruit. I think they taste gret the next day whether toasted or not. I'm sure they would freeze well. Celimix is mostly rice four so I'm sure made from scratch pancakes would be cheaper yet similar in taste.

I like the Nature's Path cornflakes myself. I buy them in the box because on the bag it says they are processed in a plant that contains wheat, but the boxed one doesn't say that. I have no idea what that is all about, but I'm the only one who eats them anyhow so the bag would probably get kinda stale before I ate it all anyhow.

I make Kinnickinnik pancakes, freeze the extras, and then nuke them for a quick breakfast. They taste pretty good. I find you have to make sure there is a layer of plastic wrap between each one or they will get stuck together in the freezer.

The plastic wrap between the pancakes is a good hint Lori. I haven't froze any pancakes, but make up a few extra and they last for a couple days in the fridge. I just heat them in the micro and they are pretty good :P
