Chex Cereal - Canada?

10 posts in this topic

Is Chex cereal not available in Canada or is it just my small city that doesn't have it. I remember eating it as a kid but never thought about it until my son was diagnosed and everyone in the US is talking about Chex cereal!

Is there any way we can petition them to sell it here too?? LOL!

What other "normal" cereals are there in Canada that are gluten-free? And by normal, I mean the usual stuff on the shelf, not the super expensive organic, sold labelled gluten-free cereal. I have yet to find one so I'm curious if there are some out there.

Thanks

Kathy, mom to Jakob, type 1 diabetes + celiac

To the best of my knowledge, Chex cereals are not sold in Canada. I remember them from my childhood, but that was decades ago. I certainly haven't seen them around here, and Toronto is as big a city as Canada has.

Chex are not sold in Canada. After 5 years, I haven't found a "regular" cereal sold in Canada.

I did, however, see a couple of boxes of Chex once at the Sobey's on Clarke street in Vaughn Ontario.

All my friends and family bring them back from the US for us when they're travelling. If you do get across the border stock up on Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles. ("regular" cereal not available in Canada.)

Can you order them on Amazon? You'd probably have to order cases of six at a time, but maybe you could split them with someone else, or just, you know, stock up?

Sigh.......I guess we'll just have to make a side trip into Bellingham for a "food stock-up" while down in Vancouver for our official "diagnosis" (scope/biopsy). I was hoping to avoid it b/c I have no control when it comes to shopping (we're a little deprived here in Prince Rupert, BC) and the $ is good and there are sooooooooooo many factory outlets along the way YIKES!! Thanks for the info and the tip on the Fruity Pebbles :)

I wonder what the border guards will think when we open up our rooftop carrier and it's FULL of Chex cereal LOL! Is there a limit to the amount of food you can bring back?

Good, doesn't look like Chex cereal is limited in any way! :D

We're going to have a rooftop carrier FULL of Chex cereal to supply my son for the year (or 6 months the way he eats!)

Yes! It's here now! I saw it and bought it for the first time a couple weeks ago. I think it's new to Canada, so you may need to look around a bit still.

    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!  
    • I am sorry too.  I did not mean to imply that you have a sugar issue (though it may contribute to our obesity problem, but that is another debate).  I do not think that is the cause of your symptoms.  I brought it up because the American Academy of Pediatrics just issued this on juice for infants, toddlers and adolescents: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2017/05/18/peds.2017-0967 We all have unique intolerances.  My kid can not drink orange juice beyond a 1/2 cup.  That is about the equivalent of two oranges.  Too much juice and she gets an allergic reaction -- itchy hives all over her body.  Yet, she can eat two oranges in her lunch everyday -- just not a full cup of orange juice, processed or fresh.   Me?  I tolerate it just fine, if only I could tolerate garlic!!!!!! i hope you feel better soon.
