When you are new to a gluten free diet, it may feel really restrictive and hard. One of the more challenging purchases would be cereal as most contain wheat. I’ve always loved cereal as a snack or dessert, so I knew giving it up completely would never be in the cards. Today, I’m doing a little taste test of 4 easy to find gluten free cereals! You’re welcome for sparing you the cash, time, and effort!
- Cocoa Safari Crunch: I’ve mentioned this one before as a favorite of mine. Similar to cocoa puffs but better because it contains real cocoa and doesn’t contain the questionable ingredients of cocoa puffs. I love it as a sweet treat at night. I highly recommend this cereal to any chocolate lovers out there! Overall 10/10
- Honey Crunch: I thought that this sounded really delicious but was sorely disappointed. I don’t mind it mixed with other cereal, but by itself it is bland and tastes like cardboard. It gets extremely soggy no matter how quickly you eat it too which is no good in my book. I wouldn’t really recommend this cereal, especially not if you’re looking for a sweet treat! Overall 4/10
- Berry Vanilla Puffs: I love berry and vanilla together so I was pretty excited to pick up this cereal. Overall there is a lot of berry flavor which I enjoyed, but not a lot of vanilla. I wish that the vanilla flavor was a little more intense because all I was getting was the berry. Berry flavor was good but not great because it has a slight fake berry after taste. I’d recommend it if you love fruit loops because the taste was similar. Overall 6/10
- Indigo Morning: I really really loved this one! The berry flavor was really good and there was no fake after taste. I also loved that there were real chunks of berries in the cereal and not just the flavor of berries. I would definitely buy this one again! Overall 10/10
I hope this helps any gluten free eaters in their quest for delicious cereal! Let me know of any of your favorites in the comment section below and I’d love to give them a try! A big thank you to Amanda for letting me think out loud today! See you tomorrow for a delicious recipe!
