A Good Gluten Free Cereal: New Vanilla Chex

Are you or someone you are close to enjoying a gluten free lifestyle?  If so, then you may be happy to hear about the newest member of the Chex cereal line, the Vanilla flavored Chex cereal.  This cereal is naturally flavored, gluten free, and it only has 8 grams of sugar and 120 calories per serving!  I am lucky enough to have been sent several FREE boxes of Vanilla Chex so that I may try them for myself and share my opinion with you.

My family and I enjoy eating cereal with milk for breakfast and we often enjoy it as a dry snack too.  I like offering my kids the Vanilla Chex because they are satisfying, whole grain,  and they don't have any saturated fat.  My kids enjoy the Vanilla Chex because they are sweet and taste good!  So eating Vanilla Chex is a win/win for everyone in my home.

                           As they say a picture is worth a thousand words:

If you are looking for more great tasting, gluten free cereals from Chex then look for the following:
Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Honey Nut Chex, Chocolate Chex, Cinnamon Chex, Apple Cinnamon Chex, and Vanilla Chex.  


Disclosure:  I have been sent a FREE sampling of the New Vanilla Chex cereal from General Mills so that I may try it and share it with my readers.  All opinions are my own.

Holiday PEEPS!

Happy November everyone!  I can't believe how fast this year is going.  Soon it will be Thanksgiving and then CHRISTMAS!  Can you believe it?  Have you started your shopping yet?  I haven't bought my main gifts but I have started looking for stocking stuffers and look what I have found!  Holiday PEEPS!  They are so cute, taste yummy and there are so many fun varieties to choose from too!

PEEPS® holiday offerings include:
  • New Sugar-Cookie Flavored Marshmallow Chicks Dipped in Milk Chocolate (3 count)
  • Gingerbread Flavored Gingerbread Men (6 ct and New 3 count)
  • Chocolate Dipped Candy Cane Flavored Marshmallow Chicks (3 count)
  • Chocolate (milk or dark) Covered Mint Flavored Marshmallow Trees (individually wrapped)
  • Chocolate Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Reindeer (6 count)
  • Trees (3 and 9 count)
  • Snowmen (3 and 9 count)
  • Peppermint Flavored Marshmallow Stars (9 count)
  • Christmas Rainbow Pop (4 count)

So far I have tried the dark chocolate covered marshmallow mint tree and the milk chocolate covered marshmallow tree is next on my list.  I loved the rich dark milk chocolate, it is smooth and covers the mint flavored marshmallow completely.  This is a great flavor combination and I will look for more of those in the store.

PEEPS has a wide range of Christmas offerings this year.  Wouldn't you or your children love to find these in their stocking?  Please leave a comment below if you would like to try these too!
