I was excited about the new Blueberry Chex because I am a huge fan of anything blueberry. I don’t eat a lot of breakfast cereal, but it is nice to know that there are more and more gluten-free options available every day. I didn’t waste anytime breaking open this box and eating a few handfuls of cereal. Very blueberry-y! Kind of sweet for my taste, but excellent with some unsweetened almond milk and fresh blueberries to dilute the sugar a bit. Surprisingly each serving only has 6 grams of sugar, which is less than I expected after tasting the cereal.

I have a new cereal love. While I don’t eat a lot of cereal, when I read about Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate now being gluten-free, I began to keep my eyes open each time I went to the grocery store. *It is important to note that the Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate is the only Honey Bunches of Oats version that is gluten-free. I finally found a box and didn’t waste anytime trying the new cereal.

Do you know what I like best about this cereal? It turns my almond milk all chocolatey. I have worked my way through an entire box and have had no stomach issues whatsoever. Post uses gluten-free oats in this variety of Honey Bunches of Oats, but not in any other versions of the cereal.
