Review: Cinnamon Chex

I am now officially only 1 Chex cereal away from trying all of the gluten-free ones out there now.  🙂  I have a great friend, Lisa, to thank for the Cinnamon Chex.  She & I did an exchange.  We were both having issues finding certain flavors, so I sent her a box of Strawberry Chex and she, in turn, sent me a box of Cinnamon Chex.  The Cinnamon Chex are amazing.  I think that they are in first place right now, as far as flavor goes, with Strawberry in second place.  Now, I have yet to track down the super-elusive Chocolate Chex yet, so that could bump Cinnamon right out of first place, because we all know how I feel about my chocolate.  When I do find the Chocolate Chex, I plan on making the following Chex Mix recipe that I found on the Chex site:

Snickerdoodle Chex® Mix

Start to Finish: 15 Minutes

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups Cinnamon Chex® cereal

2 cups Chocolate Chex® cereal

4 cups popped popcorn

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1. In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals and popcorn.

2. In 1-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter uncovered on High about 40 seconds or until melted. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.

3. Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture evenly over cereal mixture; stir. Sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture; stir. Microwave 1 minute longer. Spread on waxed paper or paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.

I don’t think that you could go wrong with this Chex Mix.  Maybe, just maybe, when we are on vacation I will happen upon the long lost Chocolate Chex.  Wish me luck! 😉

    • I know…I see lots of that Chex Mix in my future once I get my hands on the Chocolate Chex! LOL!!

  4. i can’t wait to try this kim!
    i found the cinnamon chex but it wasn’t clearly labeled GLUTEN FREE so i didn’t make the purchase

    • Yeah, they would be clearly labeled. Smart choice on your part! I hear that by June 1, 2009, all stores should have them. Keep looking!!!

  5. I haven’t found them yet, but I live in such a remote place it may be September before they get here. I can hardly wait for the Chocolate Chex.

    • Hopefully you can find them soon!! I am now out of the Cinnamon. I hope I can find them soon, too!!


  6. My daughter and I love the new cinnamon chex. I’ve been afraid to try the chocolate – don’t wanna love it too much! thanks so much for the post. Good eating!
