I love Chex. I sent General Mills an email and praised them for having so many soups in their Progresso line be gluten free. They sent me a link to their website that lists all the gluten free products they have.

I've seen the commercial on line but when I see it on TV I tune out commercials then I hear that last line of "5 flavors of Chex are GF".
I love the Honey Nut flavor but my favorite cereal before was Honey Nut Cheerios. I also need more substantive food for breakfast with protein so use it more for snacking.

Just a warning about Youtube videos - take them with a grain of salt. A couple of years ago there was a guy doing videos on "How to eat GF" where he said to go to whichever fast food place and just take the bun off the burger since he does it all the time and is fine. I wasn't the 1st person to rip him a new one and it turned out he was gluten intolerant and had a higher threshold but still thats not something to put out there as good advice.
But that can be true anywhere even here. Although the people here seem to be more knowledgeable. I see people on FB screaming crazy crap and others buy it. Like nobody with CD can eat corn, no some people can't but a lot of people don't have any problems with it.

I buy chex all the time for my family. My students actually asked who the heck likes chex so much because I use the boxes in my art room. Cinnamon tastes like the little cinn. crisps from Taco Bell. The chocolate is very popular with my 2yr old as she picks out all the choc and leaves the ones without the flavor. We always make chex mix and puppy chow to snack on(lite version) so I use the corn and rice for that. Honey nut is also very good. They did make a strawberry one for a while but I think that is gone as I have not been able to find it for over a year. Overall, I have to say it is nice to buy a GF cereal and be able to get coupons(and get a box for under $2 at times). I don't eat it much as someone else stated it does not fill me up. but it is great as a snack or mix it with some popcorn, nuts and dried fruit. I love to toss it in a container and have it ready for my 2yr old while shopping. Just plain old nice to have a selection!

I picked up a box of cinnamon Chex the other day, but haven't tried it yet. It's so nice to have a little variety to choose from and Chex (on sale) is so much cheaper than the gf cold cereals. I have to confess that I eat it as a late-night snack. I try to have a "good" breakfast every morning - oatmeal w/flaxseed, etc. Chex doesn't have much staying power, but it's good when I just want a little something to munch.

Was watching today's Today Show and saw a gf Chex commercial promoting 5 flavors of gf Chex!

The mom opens by saying, "Can a bowl of cereal change your life?" ... and also that it was nice to have something the whole family would like and to not have to say "no" to her kids all the time.
