It's true, kiddies! You can have Rice Chex again!
I saw on another gluten-free blog recently that Rice Chex has been reformulated to remove the diabolical malted barley and when I popped into the supermarket today, there it was in all its Gluten-Free Glory---one of Dan's well-loved breakfast cereals with the magical phrase "Gluten Free" emblazoned right on the front of the box.
Now, last year I was canonized in Dan's pavilion for bringing home a surprise six-pack of gluten-free Redbridge after a long celiac-induced beer drought, so I was confident that I was "packing heat" today when I lugged in the groceries and showed him this lovely box of Rice Chex. Sure enough, he busted out in a wide smile and ripped open the box immediately to snack on this much-missed breakfast staple (note open package top in the photo below). I was frankly, a little jealous of this Rice Chex love-in, but after all, he was reared on the stuff and his mom always made Chex Mix at Christmas time to pass around the family. I guess I can begrudge him a little passionate time with his Chex-mistress. Gotta go. Dan's out of milk.
