Okay, not the picture of health food, but hey, it is gluten-free! It has been a while that I have known that Chocolate Lucky Charms don’t contain any gluten ingredients, but I have never actually been able to find them locally. There was a point in time where I was able to order them on Amazon.com, but it has been a couple of years. A couple of weeks ago I caught a commercial advertising Lucky Charms and the Chocolate Lucky Charms. I thought maybe they would be in our local stores now, so I checked this past week when I did our shopping. Lo and behold, there it was on the shelf and it was on sale for $2.50/box, to boot! I knew Jon would be thrilled at this new “breakfast” treat.
Chocolate Lucky Charms is not labeled “gluten-free” like the Chex cereals, but there are no gluten ingredients on the list. General Mills is a reputable company that clearly labels any gluten containing ingredients. For example, the regular Lucky Charms version contains oats, which are not considered gluten-free unless they are the certified gluten-free variety.
The kids wasted no time digging into this cereal and much like I remember my childhood with the original Lucky Charms, both bowls had cereal left because the marshmallows are the real attraction. This won’t be a staple in our house, but it is nice to have options available for special occasions.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a review on a new Glutino item that it great for summer picnics and cookouts.
