Erewhon Gluten Free Cereal Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

My Little Guy Eating Erewhon Cocoa Crispy Cereal

My Little Guy Eating Erewhon Cocoa Crispy Cereal

I received a huge package of eight types of  Erewhon cereal!  I felt like I won gold when this package came:)  It was so nice to try out all of the Erewhon flavors of cereal – I regularly buy this brand of Gluten Free  Crispy Brown Rice cereal but hadn’t tried out any of the other flavors.  I love love love the ingredients they put into their cereals.  I was especially intrigued to try the two newest: Gluten Free Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice and Gluten Free Strawberry Crisp Flakes – I saw their ad in Living Without magazine.  By the way, if you have any food allergies- that magazine is pretty awesome.  I read it for ideas for my husband- not myself.  Though he still eats foods he’s allergic to- his belly is much happier when he’s eating something non-allergenic of course!  Anyway, I read this ad and want to run out and buy the cereal, I couldn’t find it anywhere in Omaha since it’s so new and I think customers have to start asking for it – which I will be doing.  Before I ask for products I wait around and hope for awhile- that almost never works though. 

The ingredient lists on these cereals are natural and very minimal.  Check it out.  The variety that went the fastest in my house was the Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice, which is no surprise.  My son LOVED this cereal.  Some days, he wanted me to add a little more sugar but not every day.  I enjoyed this cereal too – but at first with a little extra sugar as well, shame on me!  I’ve gotten used to it and eat it without now, I love it too:)  My personal favorite was the Strawberry Crisp kind – I wolfed that down in nothing flat.  I’m thinking about crushing up some of the corn flakes (gluten free) and baking some “fried” chicken.  But the crispy brown rice cereal just begs for me to make rice treats- so I think I’m going to make the classic right now- with some naturally colored sprinkles I found at Whole Foods!

Oh wow! I’ve never seen that brand before. I hope I win, because my daughter and I are obsessed with cereal! And the healthier, the better! Thanks for the review!

Great, my dad and I have been searching for a good gf cereal and it would be nice not to have to spend the money to sample this brand!

I love the Brown Rice Crispys. They taste like roasted brown rice. Hahahahaha they are. I love them.

On the plus side they do not make u choke when you eat them like u would with the non healthy rice cereals.

Yum. I am GF. I have never tried the strawberry flakes. They look delish! Happy Thanksgiving :)

I have been intrigued by the different GF cereals at the store but the few I have tried have been disappointing – not to mention expensive! It is great to know I could spend the money on these knowing someone else has given them the thumbs up. I also have a sample of the Cocoa variety that I picked up at the HyVee Gluten Free Gala – and now I am really anxious to try them! Thanks!

Thanks for the tweet Noelle, this will count for your comment:)

I’ve yet to see these in a store in my area. Would be wonderful to try them. Glad they went over so well in your home.

They all sound like they would be a hit around here. We like our cereal pretty un-sweet, so it’d be right up our alley :)

We have tried the corn flakes- since 2 in our family are gf. My daughter said she was happy to feel normal and eat cold cereal! :)

I saw this cereal on some other blogs and heard great things about it I’d love to see if my little boy, Hudson, likes it.
