Rice Chex Cereal!

Recommended Posts

Everyone may already know, but i just wanted to spread the word....on friday General Mills announced that Rice Chex cereal will now be GLUTEN FREE!! The statement i read says that it will be made on a dedicated production line, so there should have no cross contamination issues. There will still be some old boxes on shelves with new boxes so be sure to check the box before you but it. The new boxes have already begun to hit stores, so if you can't find it yet it should be there soon.

On a personal note: I am SOOO tired of coco pebbles, as is my daughter, and this was always one of my favorite cereals, so i am ridiculously excited about this. kudos to General Mills! :-D

YAY!!!!! :D:D Way to GO GM!!! WE too are tired of Coco pebbles. although I think my kids could eat it every morning, I hate that it is sooo messy and sticks to the table like glue <_< We actually usualy make it into COco Crispies becasue it is actually easier to clean up this way :) WE will be watching the shelves!

I just found some boxes at Target last night....says Gluten Free on the box (right on the front too, not on the side in microscopic print, lol)! Yay. And I'm happy to see that it is fortified with 50% DV iron. It's so nice to have more and more cereal choices, they make great on the go snacks for the kids, or mix-ins for a trail mix.

:D Thank you!!!

My boys go through cereal like nothing. Plus I like Chex!

They are using molasses instead of barley malt.


Whole family is allergic to Gluten, eggs, dairy, most are allergic to garlic. Few other various allergies.

Did you know it's best to wait until 21 months to give a baby wheat??

Just be patient. The stores have to get rid of the old kind first. I bought mine at Walmart. It will be carried at all stores because that is all they are making know. It states gluten-free right on the front of the box.

I've only been able to find it at Super Walmart so far. I'm not in Dallas though, I'm in Mckinney. I have also noticed that the old Rice Chex at other grocery stores are all on sale, like they are getting ready for the new boxes. I'm sure they'll be everywhere pretty soon.

I am new to the gluten free diet.....i live in the Sherman area. Where do you shop? The closest Whole foods that I see is in Plano. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks! :D

I usually shop at Market Street, it's in Mckinney off Eldorado and Ridge Road. It's kind of like a smaller scale Central Market. They have an isle with many of the commonly used gluten-free foods, as well as a freezer with Kinnikinnick items. I haven't really had to go to Whole Foods at all. If I go to any other stores, they are usually in Frisco. There is a Sprouts, as well as Family Health Market off Preston Road. But really, most everything I use is found at Market Street. Hope that helps!

I am on my second box after finally finding it at Wal-Mart. I had given up on ever eating decent cereal again. Tried some of that other stuff tastes like dirty cardboard with a little honey on it. YUCK

The first night I was sitting on my couch eating and my husband was in the other room laughing at the noises I was making. YUMMY!!!

Yellow Rose


27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.
