    Review: Gluten-Free Chocolate Chex

    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.  :)
