General Mills deserves a pat on the back! I'm amazed at how they are making more and more of their cereals gluten free. I saw Honey Kix during a recent shopping outing and picked up the box to check it out and saw that the ingredients were completely gluten free. I was so excited that I bought a box and pretty much beamed all the way to the check out lane. I loved Kix when I was a kid and to be able to try it again gave me all sorts of happy nostalgia, plus there was the added bonus of the honey flavor - I mean geez, they had me at hello!
I can't really remember what Kix tasted like, but I remember enjoying them because I could put them in a bowl of chocolate milk (it's good, trust me) and it was like dessert. I wasn't sure what to expect with Honey Kix, I think I may have romanticized them in my mind a little because the cereal pieces seem a little smaller and taste differently than I remember. They seem less fluffy/light and more dense and crunchy. Overall they are pretty good (for an occasional snack) and I'm sure any little ones who are gluten free would enjoy them. General Mills has not officially declared them gf as of yet so it's important to check labeling and if you're super sensitive you may want to give these a pass.
