This giveaway has ended.
I’m very excited about this giveaway for two reasons:
1. It’s a great product.
2. I get to select 5 winners!
What Makes Erewhon Gluten-Free Cereal Great?
First, it is gluten-free. The Erewhon web site has a FAQ page entitled Gluten Free Diet/Celiac Disease, which contains a wealth of useful and accurate information. I knew that probably meant they are careful when it comes to producing gluten-free products, but I asked for more information.
Their allergen statement put me at ease. They keep employees well informed and take necessary steps to prevent cross contamination. Their final paragraph of the statement says,
“Gluten-free products are tested at various points in the production process to ensure that cross contamination has not occurred. The gluten testing is sensitive to 20 ppm.”
Second, the cereal is healthy. They use whole grain brown rice, corn, and amaranth. They are organic, and some have no added sweeteners. Those that are sweetened use natural sweeteners.
Third, they taste good. I was able to sample all of their gluten-free cereal, so I’m going to take a minute to review them.
My favorites are the rice cereals, mostly because I like the texture and crunchiness better than the other cereals. I also liked mixing a rice cereal with a corn cereal. The Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice contains the most sugar with 11g per serving. I liked mixing it with the corn flakes which has less than 1g sugar. It balanced the sweetness and the texture/crunchiness.
I particularly like the cereals that contain fruit with Strawberry Crisp being my absolute favorite. It is made from brown rice and corn, it has a nice crunch to it, and the strawberries are so flavorful.
My least favorite was the Aztec Crunchy Corn & Amaranth. I didn’t care for the flavor and I didn’t like the texture at all. It gave my teeth a squeaky feeling. That was the only cereal I wouldn’t recommend, but that’s just me.
