I could wax poetic on the topics of breakfast and my childhood for a couple of paragraphs here, but I think it’s probably best if I don’t beat around the bush with this exciting news.

So, without further ado and according to Kelloggs.com:

“After hearing from so many gluten-free families out there, we’re happy to bring you NEW Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Gluten Free cereal, made with brown rice. It’ll be available in June, so be sure to ask your local supermarket to stock up!”


It’s worth noting that this isn’t quite the best news ever – in a perfect, gluten-free world Kellogg’s would have reformulated their original product to be gluten-free, a la Chex.

This means that those bake sale and bodega Rice Krispies treats are still off-limits for the most part. I guess it’s not such a shame since the cross-contamination issues possible in either of those situations are fairly high. And we can make our own treats now!

If, like me, you haven’t made a Rice Krispies treat in forever, here are some suggestions ranging from classic to fancy to get your creative juices flowing:
