Kellogs now has Gluten Free Rice Krispies!

Since I broke my leg Troy is now the shopper for the family. He was at the store the other day and came across Gluten Free Rice Krispies! I was always bummed that Rice Krispies used malt in their recipe - we love that cereal but haven't gotten it since Gracie went gluten free.

Troy got a box and we tried it. It had a great taste and texture, but was not sweet like the regular Rice Krispies - Gracie adds a little sugar. She LOVES it! and we have added it to our "go to" cereal stash.

I am looking forward to make Rice Krispie Pops! Or maybe these wonderful Peppermint Rice Krispie Treat Snowballs for our Christmas Eve Party!

Gluten Free Expo!

My dear friend Wanetta sent me a link to the Gluten And Allergy Free Expo that is coming to Dallas On October 1st and 2nd! Taste test gluten free foods, have a gluten free lunch, talk to people who know! It is $20 for adults and $5 for kids under 12.

I LOVE expos! Any kind - computer, food etc. but it has been years since I have been to one. I would SO love to take Gracie But I broke my leg and am off of my feet for a couple of months. I would love if anyone is able to go they could come back with a review.

There are several expos around the country - check to see if there is one near you!

Follow up:

Troy and Gracie went - and LOVED it!!! Troy said he had never seen Gracie eat so much EVER! She went from space to space tasting all of the samples and going back for more when she found something she loved and she could eat EVERYTHING! She received some wonderful gifts - Chocolate Chip Cookies from Udi's (which she loved,) She won a great basket of kids treats as well as some books on gluten free living as well as some great samples to take home.

We will be looking VERY forward to going again next year and I would really suggest going if it comes to your area. Thank you Gluten Free Expo! It is fantastic to have a "safe place" to try new foods.
