This is a follow-up to my post, Corn Chex are NOT Gluten-Free.
After seeing pictures of Corn Chex and Strawberry Chex with “gluten-free” printed boldly on the front, I decided to call General Mills for the second time today.
This lady informed me that they received an email today stating that the following products are being reformulated to be gluten-free and will be widely available June 1st.
- Corn Chex
- Honey Nut Chex
- Chocolate Chex
- Strawberry Chex
- Cinnamon Chex
She said the boxes that have been seen in the stores already are probably part of a test market. When the gluten-free cereals are available, they will be clearly labeled gluten-free.
Yeah!!!! Thank you General Mills!
If you don’t know, Rice Chex are already gluten-free. In regards to cross-contamination, their web site says,
“General Mills has prevented cross contamination and has tested the formula based on the proposed FDA standards.”
I assume the same will be true of the above listed cereals. Now we just have to patiently wait until June 1st!
