Gluten Free Rice Krispies mean...

...gluten free Rice Krispie treats!!!!!!!!!  Dave's mom found gluten free Rice Krispies at the store in New Jersey, so the first chance I got, I ran down to the grocery store and, on the shelf above the regular Rice Krispies were gluten free Rice Krispies!  Thank you, Kelloggs!  The funny thing is that they advertise it as containing brown rice, as if regular rice wasn't gluten free.  It was the malt flavoring that ruined it for us!  I would like to point out that I just paid $5.49 for this box of cereal, but the regular box was on sale for $1.99.  For real, but at least now I can have breakfast with Sir Snap, Mr. Crackle, and Dr. Pop every day! 

I ran over to the baking aisle and grabbed a bag of marshmallows and I just ate my first Rice Krispie treat since 2003!  It was everything I remember it being.  It's like my childhood in a little snack.  In fact, the taste brought back a very specific memory of O.M. practice after school in 4th grade and every time Angie was in charge of treats, her mom would make us a batch of these babies. 

I am in heaven.  Actually, I'm a little freaked out that I can't control myself and might eat half of the pan before Dave gets home from work. 

I would like to point out the fact that General Mills has been on board with this for quite some time and they have their own line of delicious gluten free options.  The Honey Nut Chex is my candy, the Rice Chex is perfect for puppy chow (chocolate, peanut butter, butter, powder sugar amazingness) and making your own chex mix at home.  I'm also a huge fan of the Cinnamon Chex in milk.  On any given day, you can find one of these on my pantry shelf and one in my office.  In fact, sometimes I make these my breakfast AND lunch when I forget a real lunch and can't get away to eat.  

I do, however, have one wish that some day, some how, I can eat Lucky Charms again.  General Mills, have you considered packaging just the yummy marshmallows that come in the Lucky Charms?  Because I could mix those with the Rice Krispies and be content for the rest of my life!  I'd also probably be really, really fat, or maybe just energized for the day?  

Until then, I will be chowing down on expensive, but tasty Rice Krispie treats!  Hurray for Kelloggs!

I'm super excited about this! I just got home from the grocery store and wish I would have known ahead of time so I could have picked some up! Next time...

Yay!!! I saw these in the grocery store a couple days ago and thought of you! I was also puzzled by the brown rice thing, as though white rice had gluten. :P Also, now I have a major Rice Krispies treats craving...

Rice Krispies are made by General Mills, not Kelloggs.

Then why does it say in giant letters on the box, "Kellogg's Rice Krispies"?
