Gluten Free Rice Krispies Review

This post may contain affiliate links. For more info please read the full disclosure statement

I decided to try Gluten Free Rice Krispies.   I am a HUGE fan of regular Rice Krispies so I was interested to see how I would like the Gluten Free version.  I am sad to say that I am NOT a fan of the Gluten Free version.  They did not have the same taste or consistency at all.  I am going to have to give Gluten Free Rice Krispies two thumbs down for breakfast cereal.

However, I didn’t want the box to go to waste so I decided to make Gluten Free Rice Krispie Treats with them and was THRILLED that neither my son or I could tell the difference!  So I would not use them for breakfast but I would use them to make treats!

  1. Didn’t like the gluten free Rice Krispies.Tasted like puffed up pieces of cardboard.

  2. I’ve made this recipe in the past, did not like it at all :-( I love rice krispie treats but when made with the gf krispies they tasted stale to me. I much prefer to make same recipe and substitute the cereal with gf Rice Chex (crunched up by hand a little before adding marshmallows), very yummy!

      I think they have reformulated them, I didn’t mind them as a treat but not a fan with milk for sure.
