Gluten-Free - Blog Post Series - Beginning with Chex

I've been eating gluten-free for about a year and a half now, and by now I've definitely developed some preferences and tricks for eating gluten-free.

I thought it'd be nice to share those tips and suggestions with you, my readers, in case any of the following apply:

a) you are or want to start eating gluten-free
b) you know someone who eats gluten-free and you need/want to feed them
c) you know someone who is newly gluten-free and you'd like to help them out a bit
d) you're just curious about gluten-free eating for whatever reason

(I feel like a good majority of the population falls into one of those categories.)

So I'm going to start a gluten-free blog post series.  These posts will oftentimes just provide information on my favorite gluten-free products, but I also may share my favorite resources, stores, substitutes for recipes, etc.

Sound good?  Good.

To start, today I'm going to tell you about my favorite gluten-free cereal:



Really, people, Chex is da bomb for us gluten-free eaters.  All the flavors of Chex cereal are gluten-free EXCEPT the Multi-Bran Chex and the Wheat Chex (and the word "wheat" in the title should be a dead giveaway - but we'll get into that in another blog post).  The boxes even say right on the front that they are gluten-free, which I love!

Look at all the flavor choices!  Rice, Corn, Honey Nut, Chocolate, Cinnamon, or Apple Cinnamon.  I usually keep the Corn and Cinnamon Chex in stock in our pantry, but they're all pretty tasty.  (Except the Apple Cinnamon - can't speak for that one because I haven't tried it.  I'm not much of an apple-cinnamon-cereal girl.)

The Rice and Corn flavors somewhat resemble Crispix.  The Honey Nut is for you Honey Nut Cheerios lovers, the Chocolate is for you Cocoa Puffs lovers, and the Cinnamon is for you Cinnamon Toast Crunch lovers (that's me!).

A huge perk to Chex being gluten-free is that this cereal is available at pretty much every store, in the normal cereal aisle, at normal cereal prices.  There's no searching through the health food section of the grocery store to find a $6 box of cereal that looks like it may possibly resemble the look and taste of Cheerios if you absolutely drown it in milk.

Plus, Chex can be used for so many tasty party mixes.  My all-time favorite is Muddy Buddies (aka puppy chow).  Mmmm mmm mmm.

[One warning: do NOT try to buy the store-brand generic version of Chex, thinking it will be gluten-free.  It's usually not.  You have to go name-brand in this situation (and unfortunately in many gluten-free situations).  Whenever you're not sure, stick to the brand that you KNOW is gluten-free.  Otherwise you or the gluten-free eater may end up with a tummy ache.  And obviously that's no fun. :( ]

Alrighty, now that I've shared, get out there and buy some Chex cereal!

(I was in no way compensated by Chex for writing this review.  It is all my own opinion, unprovoked by General Mills.  I'm just a huge fan. :) )

More gluten-free posts will be on their way!
