I decided to try Gluten Free Rice Krispies cereal. 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 at all. 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 to waste the box of cereal so I decided to make Gluten Free Rice Krispie Treats with them and was THRILLED that neither my son or I could tell a huge difference! So I would not use them for breakfast but I would use them to make treats!
