Chex Gluten-Free Cereal Now Available in Canada


One in every 133 Canadians suffers from Celiac Disease and 71% of Canadians are looking for more gluten free options on grocery store shelves.

About Gluten Sensitivity:
Some people have gluten intolerance in their diets at some point in their lives. What is it? Gluten are sticky storage proteins found in wheat and most grains. Those who are sensitive to gluten products may experience discomfort such as abdominal pains, gas, bloating, and even diarrhea.

My Experience:
I, myself, nor does anyone in the family have gluten intolerance, but the occasional gluten-free meals and snacks are nice. General Mills brand created a new cereal called Chex and is now available in Canada.

I was given the opportunity to try the Honey Nut flavor and the Rice Chex flavor. The cereal looks like mini square wheaties and I was very please with the great tasting flavor. Even my toddler loves them and keeps asking for more. The cereal is light and crunchy. My favorite is the Honey Nut Chex flavor as I like the hint of honey sweetness. I like both of them really. For breakfast, I love to have it with milk. Chex cereal can be consumed as a dry snack on it's own or mix it with other snacks.

Thanks to the General Mills Life Made Delicious website, I can find gluten-free recipes using the Chex cereal. Here's one of my favorites: Chicken Nuggets (Gluten-Free).

There are so many yummy recipes I'd love to try and most of them look very easy to make. I'll keep you all posted how my next meal turns out.

Give Chex a try. It's a new great-tasting Gluten Free cereal the whole family will love!
