ChocolateBet: August 25, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:
1 bowl/serving
General Mills
Chocolate Chex Gluten Free cereal
Very Good
Weight: 3/4 cup (32 grams); 14.25 oz. (403 grams) in total box
Calories: 130 calories + 40 calories for milk = 170 calories total in 1 bowl/serving
Cost: $3.79 for 1 box (sale)
Purchased from: Safeway, in Sunnyvale, CA

I was very happy to find out that General Mills started making gluten-free Chex (Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Chocolate Chex, and Strawberry Chex). I liked that this cereal was not ultra-sweet, and that it included some whole grain rice. These healthy attributes may be canceled out, however, when I use these new Chex in an old Chex Party Mix recipe I have (basically sauteed Chex cereal with butter, Worcestershire sauce, peanuts, gluten-free pretzels,...that kind of thing).

Hi Corinne - I found a chocolate cinnamon popsicle in San Francisco that you have to try at Nopalito.
