Giveaway & Review: Gluten Free Cereals from Cerealvit


I love testing new gluten free cereals, it provides me the chance to add new fast weekday breakfast options for my family. Trying the four gluten free, organic Cerealvit cereals from Riega Foods was especially exciting, because they offer some unique flavors.
One of the greatest things about the gluten free cereals from Cerealvit is their 13.25 oz package size, which is the largest average size of any brand of boxed gluten free and organic cereals! That means Cerealvit cereals are 10% to 40% larger than most other gluten free cereals on the market... WOW! Being the frugal Mom that I am, I love that!
Choco Stars are like an answer to my children's prayers; this crunchy star shaped chocolate cereal tastes very similar to the Cocoa Puffs of my childhood, but unlike Cocoa Puffs, Choco Stars contain healthy ingredients! My elementary aged children are attracted to the child-friendly graphics on the box, and of course they love the chocolaty flavor and the crunch. Any household with children on a gluten free diet should definitely try Choco Stars!

My husband and I love the Benevit cereal the most; it's crunchy flakes have a pleasing flavor, and remind us of the Special K cereal that we used to enjoy eating before our household went gluten free. We love Benevit cereal topped with chopped fresh fruit or berries; it is the perfect cereal for those who are looking for health benefits in a crispy, not overly sweet cereal.


The Coffee Flakes from Cerealvit win the award for being the most unique gluten free cereal flavor I have ever tested. I can best describe it as a crunchy iced latte (use your imagination here... crunchy cereal, coated in real espresso, mixed with iced cold milk). Although I am a tea person and usually avoid coffee, I did find this cereal interesting. My husband loves coffee, and thought this cereal was tasty as a late night snack. I am confident that coffee aficionados following a gluten free diet will become instant fans of Coffee Flakes upon their first bite.


The Corn Flakes from Cerealvit have a great corn flavor and are nice and crunchy. Corn flakes are a staple in my house. I often use Corn Flakes to make peanut butter dessert bars for my family, so we always keep them on hand. My family likes the Cerealvit Corn Flakes, and we would definitely use them again.

A message from Riega Foods:
"When a person has special dietary needs it is important to know what is in your food and where it is made. That is why we fully disclose all ingredients and clearly list what other common allergens causing ingredients are used in the facilities where our foods are made. With the Riega brand we even give you a quick reference stamp in the upper right hand corner of our packaging. This stamp quickly lets you know if our foods are appropriate for you.

Riega Foods also understands that those with gluten intolerance need lower levels of gluten in their food than the FDA currently allows. That is why we will not sell a single product labeled as gluten free that is not tested and confirmed to contain less than 20 ppm of gluten."

WHERE TO BUY:
A where to buy section will be up on the Riega Foods website soon. They are uploading the stores and setting up that section. Please check the Riega Foods website in the next week or two.

While you are waiting for Riega to update the where to buy section, you can take action on your own. Just click to open this store request card, then take it to the manager of the store where you currently purchase your gluten free foods. Ask them to carry Cerealvit cereals.
