Corn Chex was one of the few "approved" cereals in my house growing up. Deprived from the sugary goodness of most breakfast cereals, we spent our mornings eating Cheerio's, Kix, Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, Raisin Bran, Grape Nuts, and Rice or Corn Chex. Once every few months my brother and I were allowed to pick a sugary cereal and a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Rice Krispies Treats Cereal was devoured within hours. Honestly though, I liked all those "healthy" cereals and was probably better off for it.
Fortunately for my now gluten free self, Chex has five gluten free varieties: Rice, Corn, Honey Nut, Chocolate, and Cinnamon. I haven't tried the Chocolate or Cinnamon, but the others are good. Sometimes I buy myself the Honey Nut Chex and feel slightly rebellious against my sugar free cereal upbringing. I know, I know, I'm pretty wild in my old age.
One of the great things about Chex is that it's available in most grocery stores so you don't have to go out of your way for cereal. What's your favorite cereal?
