General Mills has added another flavor of gluten-free Chex to its lineup: Apple Cinnamon. This addition makes six flavors (Honey Nut, Rice, Corn, Chocolate, and Cinnamon) that are gluten free and on supermarket shelves around the country.
Apple Cinnamon Chex Has:
- No artificial colors or flavors
- Sprinkled with real apple and cinnamon
- 8 grams of sugar per serving
- 9 grams of whole grain (at least 48 grams recommended daily)
When the first batch of gluten-free Chex cereals were released I had more luck finding them at Walmart than at the grocery store, but if you just can’t wait to find them locally you can order them at Amazon.com and at GlutenFreely.com online where they are on sale now.
I cannot tolerate BHT, so their cereals are off limits for me, but I am sure a number of cereal fans are quite happy right about now.
Whole Grain Rice, Rice, Sugar, Canola Oil, Apple Powder, Salt, Cinnamon, Allspice, Ginger, Molasses, Natural Flavor. Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols), BHT and Sodium Sulfite Added to Preserve Freshness. Vitamins and Minerals: Calcium Carbonate, Iron and Zinc (mineral nutrients), Vitamin C (sodium ascorbate), A B Vitamin (niacinamide), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride), Vitamin B1 (thiamin mononitrate), Vitamin A (palmitate), Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), A B Vitamin (folic acid), Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3.
