Finally, I have found the last puzzle piece. Seriously, this has been like a wild goose chase through grocery stores across the country! LOL! Since I first heard that General Mills was converting 6 of their Chex Cereals over to gluten-free, I have been keeping my eyes peeled for the cereals. I was in Atlanta over Spring Break; I looked in several grocery stores there. I was in North & South Carolina for the past 2 weeks and looked in several grocery stores there. I have looked in every grocery store here in Columbus. Before today I had found every new variety of gluten-free Chex cereal, except for Cinnamon, which I did an exchange for with my pal Lisa. Lisa couldn’t find the Strawberry, so we did an exchange. :)
Today I had to run to Kroger to grab a couple things. Normally I don’t shop at Kroger, but I hadn’t looked there recently for my Chex and I wanted to check for the Betty Crocker Gluten-Free mixes there, too. I swear I danced in the aisle when I found those GF Chocolate Chex. I wish you could have seen it. You all know how much I love chocolate, this stuff is heaven in a box!! I think that this is by far my favorite variety, though I don’t have any that I don’t like. As a matter of fact, I think I have all 6 varieties in my pantry right now! **BLUSH** Hi, my name is Kim and I am a cereal-a-holic! I can’t wait to start making some of the snack mixes that Chex has on their website! The best part about these Chex (other than them being chocolate)? They are $2.99! The other Chex cereals are $3.49 at Kroger. I don’t know why these are cheaper, but I bought 2 boxes. :) This product gets 5 stars from me!!
Want to know what else? I found 3 out of the 4 Betty Crocker Mixes at Kroger! WOOHOO!!!!
I was a little disappointed at the price ($4.49/box) and that they didn’t have the Devil’s Food Cake, but hey, it is a start. I’ll take it. I am just excited that General Mills is taking this step. It is huge!! Gluten-free food has come a long way in the past 3 years since I have been following the diet. I will review these 1 by 1 as I bake & sample them. Hopefully starting tomorrow. 🙂
