Yes, they ARE! And so are Fruity Pebbles! However, the marshmallow versions are not. When I found out that Cocoa Pebbles were gluten free five years ago, I was ecstatic because that had been my favorite cereal before getting diagnosed with celiac.

I can't wait to make some cereal bars with them also! woot! And you know what else I love? The fact that celiac/gluten intolerant kids can have a sweet mainline cereal that they can eat. Nice for their parents wallet, and so nice for them to feel "normal". :)

My first since they've officially labeled the box gluten free.

:wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

does the box say 'gluten free' on the front?

i looked at giant tonight but didn't see anything labeled. it actually said 'may contain wheat' so i'm assuming it was an old box still...

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.

Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.

So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!

My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

Yes! It says "Gluten Free!" in huge letters right at the top. :) Your store probably has old boxes. I bought mine at Target so maybe Giant is still behind the times.

I wouldn't buy them for the longest time because I didn't see the gluten free in big letters on the top of the box. One day I picked up a box and found it written on the side panel. Just look over the boxes to see if you find the gluten free words. My kids have been eating the cocoa and fruity pebbles a lot. They don't like the pebbles cereal bars at all. Come to think of it they didn't like the prepackaged rice crispy bars (when they could eat them) either. They, and the pebbles bars, to me have a funny "wang" to them. I can't quite put my finger on it. When me make them from scratch they don't have that taste and are soooo good. I have looked at the cupcake pebbles and I have yet to find a box that has gluten free on it, so I won't buy those.

I agree about the premade cereal bars. They have a funny aftertaste. My ds ate them, but then again he's a teenage boy and will eat anything that isn't moving. lol.. But I thought they were icky. I'm going to make my own pretty soon. yummmm....

I bought a box of gluten-free Cocoa Pebbles when my 12-year old granddaughter spent the night with me. They came with a sample of the Cocoa Pebbles Treat. I had one bite just to taste them. I thought they were sickening sweet but she loved them!

I'm thinking the Cocoa Pebbles cereal crushed might make a good chocolate pie crust (no additional sugar needed though).

ETA: I found them at Wal-Mart

I just had one of the bars and I actually liked it, didn't notice the aftertaste. Its sweet but a much better option if you're craving a candy bar or something!
