We Love Chex – a Gluten-Free romance July 4, 2009
As of June 1, there are now 6 Gluten-Free Chex cereals. Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Cinnamon Chex(my daughter’s favorite) Honey Nut Chex (my mother’s favorite), Chocolate Chex, and Strawberry Chex.
I cannot wait to try them all. Sadly, my Wal-mart does not carry Chocolate or Strawberry yet. But it is only a matter of time until I track them down. In the meantime, there are a ton more recipes (a total of 20) for Gluten Free Chex Mix. Check out this link.
