We are sad to announce that Kellogg’s Gluten-Free Rice Krispies has died. (Discontinued)
In an official announcement made by Kellog’s on March 24, 2015 via their online community board the following eulogy was read.
“We’re sorry to report that Gluten Free Rice Krispies has been discontinued
We are sorry to announce that Gluten Free Rice Krispies has been discontinued. We made the difficult decision to stop making Gluten Free Rice Krispies due to current manufacturing constraints.
Certainly, we realize many fans will be understandably disappointed by this announcement. Although it may be difficult to replace Gluten Free Rice Krispies, we invite you to enjoy our other great Kellogg’s Gluten Free products.”
I can remember like it was yesterday when the buzz about a gluten-free rice krispie option was swarming in the gluten-free community. We all ran out (at least our family) to get the iconic brand and hear the trademark “Snap, Crackle and Pop”. Once again we had rice krispie bars! Here is the crazy thing; they tasted just like the original. It’s beyond me to understand why Kellogg’s wouldn’t just keep the gluten-free recipe and replace the original.
Nevertheless there are some great gluten-free cereals out there. You can find the Gluten-Free Award results for Best Gluten-Free Cereal here.
If you want to stock up on gluten-free rice krispies before they are completely gone, I recommend you look at Amazon prices and shop smart. Remember the supply and demand chart from school? As the supply goes down demand will go up and so will prices. Check Amazon Prizes here.
