Vanilla Cookie Crisp With Sprinkles

I saw this posted on another board. I can't find the ingredients listed online. Does anyone know if these are safe?

All the cookie crisp cereals are made from whole grain corn, corn meal, cornstarch, and corn syrup. Seems like it would pack on the pounds with all that corn and sugar. I wouldn't eat it.

I ate some and didn't get sick. It's really sickening sweet.

I wouldn't eat it either but was thinking of it for my daughter.

The Retailer-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named sells it. They have an ingredients list posted for the chocolate chip flavor.

Whole Grain Corn, Sugar, Brown Sugar, Corn Meal, Chocolate Flavored Chips (Sugar, Wheat Starch, Cocoa Processed With Alkali, Corn Starch, Yellow Corn Flour, Soybean Oil, Corn Syrup Solids, Salt, Dextrose, Baking Soda, Soy Lecithin, Distilled Monoglycerides, Chocolate Liquor, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Tricalcium Phosphate [Anticaking Agent]), Modified Corn Starch, Whole Grain Oats, Rice Bran and/or Canola Oil, Cocoa Processed With Alkali, Salt, Fructose, Tricalcium Phosphate, Corn Syrup, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Trisodium Phosphate. Vitamin E (Mixed Tocopherols) and Bht Added to Preserve Freshness. Vitamins and Minerals: Calcium Carbonate, Zinc and Iron (Mineral Nutrients), Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbate), A B Vitamin (Niacinamide), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin Mononitrate), Vitamin A (Palmitate), A B Vitamin (Folic Acid), Vitamin B12, Vitamin D.

I don't see ingredients posted for the vanilla sprinkles flavor, but even if there's no wheat starch listed, there are probably oats (non-gluten-free) and I'm always suspicious of "natural flavors" in cereals or other sweets (although it's probably not an issue with General Mills products).

There's nothing that I see in the Cookie Crisp ingredients which would be an absolute NO for all Celiacs (wheat starch theoretically shouldn't contain gluten if it's processed well enough, and many Celiacs tolerate oats) but I feel it would be really pushing my luck to try it.

General Mills is getting pretty good about saying which of their products are truly gluten-free. I think I'd stick with the ones that are marked gluten-free. Perhaps you might try the Strawberry Chex for your child if you want to offer a super-sweet cereal as a treat.

Trix and Fruity Pebbles work for a treat too.

I know you were asking about Cookie Crisp and not options for other cereals, but as a 26 year old who would eat Lucky Charms today if I could, I like to have a nice sweet bowl of cereal every once in a while!

I LOVE the Envirokids Peanut Butter Panda Puffs. It looks like Kix but tastes like Captain Crunch. It is Gluten-Free and organic. It is completely delicious and I think your daughter would enjoy it because it tastes like regular cereal. It doesn't taste like icky gluten-free cereal.

If you have a Trader Joe's around, I would look for it and give it a try! :P

Good suggestion. They're pretty good right out of the box. Really sweet. The chocolate chex are good treats also.

We now have all the gluten-free varieties available here and I like them all. The rice chex are the only one's I have to add some agave nectar to sweeten up a little. I like to add some blueberries also.

best regards, lm

The GM Sprinkles Cookie Crisp cereal contains no gluten-containing ingredients (no WBRO), although it is not labeled as gluten free. A Google search of "sprinkles cookie crisp gluten free" should turn up the ingredient list.

Thanks! I do know about the other cereals and she does like some of them. Nut allergy means nothing with peanut butter. I thought this Cookie Crisp would be good to use not as a cereal but a finger food on the way to dance class. Could be put in a bag and eaten with fingers.

Of course I don't know what her schedule will be next year. This year she had to go straight to dance class 3 days a week right after school. And two of those days were days with back to back classes.

I hadn't seen the oats on the chocolate chip kind. Only the wheat.

Just got 4 boxes from that online place that is the name of a big river. Couldn't find it in any stores. Doesn't say gluten-free on the box. Tastes just like sugar cookies. Daughter has a new favorite!
