Dora The Explorer Cereal

Recommended Posts

I know there was a thread on here recently about Dora the Explorer Cereal. I thought it said it was gluten free and I have shopped all over town to find it. I finally found a box today and called General Mills and spoke with 2 uninformed individuals. They will not guarantee this cereal is gluten free. They will not guarantee any of their cereals are gluten free due to cross contamination. They didn't seem to know anything about gluten. It was rather disappointing. Just thought you may want to know. :unsure:

Several of us have sent e-mails to General Mills asking about Cocoa Puffs.

I guess I need to send an e-mail about Dora Cereal now too.

This is so frustrating.....

I read somewhere, maybe the Delphi list?, that Dora was gluten free. As I said, I am not sure where I read it, but I did see it somewhere as gluten free.

I have read that plenty of people on here have eaten it without issue, so I would guess that it's ok. I also called General Mills back when I first found this cereal and they told me that they don't hide any ingredients and that the lines are well washed between runs. My kids have been eating it for a long time now and haven't had a problem.

You can see the list of it's ingrediants on the General Mills website. Looking at that, it appears to be gluten free, but I am sure they will not say it's gluten free due to cross contamination, so they are not held liable if someone gets sick from it.
