How excited was I to find out not one, but two of my all time favorite mainstream products now have gluten free formulas? Rice Chex, which I was obsessed with back in the day is now gluten free and proudly says so on the front of the package! I bought a box and devoured two bowls as soon as I got home. They taste just as good as I remember. If only Nestle Quik were gluten free too! Let me tell you plain cereal and Quik is like heaven in your mouth. It sounds funky, but don't knock it until you try it.
The other great addition to the mainstream gluten free family is Sour Starburst! I LOVE sour candy and I really missed having chewy candies like Starburst. I was poking around the net the other day and found out that Mars, Inc. is now manufacturing GF Sour Starburst, it even says gluten free (check on the back before buying) on the package!
My joy is coupled with sadness though because I am so going to gain weight after all of my gorging last week. Ah well, it's all in the name of gluten freedom, right? :)
