Corn Chex cereal now gluten-free

fruiti sushiThanks to Sure Foods Living for all the great updates! On June 1st, the new gluten-free versions of Corn Chex, Cinnamon Chex, Strawberry Chex and Honey Nut Chex will become officially available. The cereal boxes will be clearly and prominently marked as gluten-free. Rice Chex will not change on June 1st; it will remain gluten-free. General Mills knows which side its gluten-free bread is buttered on: it currently sponsors the Celiac Disease Foundation and the Celiac Sprue Association. If you wish to be more creative than simply pouring milk over your cereal and spooning it into your gullet, the General Mills Chex cereal website has a page devoted to recipes for gluten-free Chex products. See above a picture of the following recipe for Fruiti Sushi:

1 1/4 cups Rice Chex® cereal (gluten free)
1 cup white vanilla chips
4 rolls Betty Crocker® Fruit Roll-Ups® chewy fruit snack in favorite flavor (from 5-oz box), unwrapped
12 candy worms

Preparation Directions

1. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with fingers to 3/4 cup.
2. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla chips as directed on package until melted and stirred smooth. Add crushed cereal; stir until well coated.
3. Unroll fruit snack rolls. For each sushi roll, spread 1/4 of cereal mixture on snack roll to within 1/2 inch of one short side. Arrange 3 candy worms, side by side, on cereal-covered short side.
4. Starting with short side topped with candy worms, roll up each snack roll tightly, pressing unfilled short side of roll to seal.
5. Let sushi rolls stand 5 to 10 minutes or until firm. Cut each roll into 4 slices.

If you are allergic to soy, peanuts, or casein, check the new ingredient lists because some allergens may have been added.

  1. I bought the Gluten Free Corn Chex. Its good. Then I tried the Honey Nut (Almonds) Chex. I didn’t get any flavor except alot of sweet. Today I purchased the Rice Chex . I saw that BHT had been added to preserve freshness. So I checked all flavors, and they all contain BHT. It is a preservative..
