A's Review: * * * *
Just plain tasty. This is my go-to replacement ingredient for bread crumbs when creating Gluten-Freed recipe modifications. Rice Chex has recently been certified gluten free, which is a big plus. For a long time, I ate Corn Chex exclusively, shunning the others for reasons that I cannot remember. Coming back to Rice Chex after all this time makes me a little sad that I did that. My one complaint is they get soggy fairly quick, so either moderate the amount of milk (not something that I am likely to do) or make sure that you have distraction-free quality time to spend with your bowl. Better with a sliced banana, but what cereal isn't?

Z's Review: * * * *
I have to admit that this is not the most exciting cereal to eat with just milk. It's a little bit boring that way. It would probably be a lot better with some bananas or berries on top. However, Rice Chex are useful for more than just breakfast! Crushed up Rice Chex make an excellent gluten-free substitute for bread crumbs in things like crabcakes or katsu. Rice Chex is also a partner with the Celiac Disease Foundation, and lists a bunch of recipies for gluten-free snack ideas on its website. A very useful product for a gluten-free pantry.
