Jay at Gluten-Free Post was the first to announce a few days ago that heíd found Gluten-Free Corn Chex in his local store. After much internet chatter over the weekend, Gluten-Free Homemaker confirmed that not only is Corn Chex becoming gluten-free, but Honey Nut Chex, Chocolate Chex, Strawberry Chex and Cinnamon Chex will be gluten-free as well! The new gluten-free versions of these products will not be widely available until June 1st. For now, theyíre only on store shelves in a few test markets.
As if that werenít exciting enough, Liz at kill.the.gluten is reporting on her test of a new gluten-free Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix, also from General Mills. Liz reported earlier that she had received three mixes to test: the cookies, brownies, and cake. The Betty Crocker gluten-free mixes, like the gluten-free Chex cereals, wonít be widely available for several months yet, at least.
Any Chex or Betty Crocker product thatís gluten-free will be clearly labeled. If you donít see an obvious gluten-free label on the front of the package, then itís the old formulation and itís not safe for celiacs.
