Rice Chex Muddy Buddies

Okay.

So...

It's just too danged hot here in the northeast to post a soup recipe. It did turn out lovely and worth sharing, and it will be shared...maybe when this heat wave breaks!

Okay,

Now onto why we're here today! General Mills has caught onto the "gluten-free" trade and is now producing their Rice Chex gluten-free. Says so right on the box. I think this sent a shockwave of joy through the Gluten-free community!

Well...

This weeks highlight is a recipe I always wanted to try and never did because I didn't want to buy an expensive box of gluten-free rice chex alternative cereal and use it for something I couldn't share! LOL :D Well, our local grocery store just ran a special on Chex cereals and I got the large box for $2 each! I stocked up, let me tell you!

The recipe I tried was the Chex Muddy Buddies. Extremely easy to create and extremely delicious. A treat that won't heat up your kitchen, and is kept in the fridge, so it's a nice cool treat in this awful heat!

I hope you go whip yourselves up a batch and enjoy! :D

And rejoice that at Christmas we'll be able to do an inexpensive Chex Party Mix to share! :D

I did not know that! Thanks so much for sharing. I have a handful of mainstream cereals that we buy on occasion, but most of them are filled with sugar and I don't let my kids eat that. This will be a great "emergency" breakfast to keep on hand.

Thanks so much for your blog. I enjoy reading about all the celiac stuff. I've been a diagnosed celiac for about 12 years. Two things: One, do you know about crispix and corn chex? Are they gluten free? Second, on the original post says that rice chex is gluten free and it is not producing their chex gluten free. I think it should say that it is producing them gluten free.
Thanks Dave

Thank you Dave! I've fixed the error, it was supposed to say "now" not "not". THANKS!

Crispix and Corn Chex STILL contain gluten. Many are hoping that General Mills will follow what they did with Rice Chex with applying it to their other non-wheat based Chex cereals. I do recall reading on the Celiac.com website that GM is planning to do just that, but there was no timetable on when it would occur. I think they are most likely waiting to see if taking this first step actually produces more customers for them.

THANKS for visiting and for you nice comments! :D

I have recently visited the General Mills campus (TOP SECRET MISSION) and quizzed various employees about the GF-ness of various Gen Mills products. The employees were not privy to any timetables, either, but DID tell me that more GF cereals are on the way! Yippee!

They also felt the need to tell me that ALL Yoplait products are GF, as well. Even yogurts called "strawberry cheesecake."

Wow! I didn't know this & I'm so excited! I've made Muddy Buddies in the past but we call it puppy chow : )

these cereals are not organic so if you are trying to do organic and gf, these will not work for you.
