Are Kix gluten free???
I just saw that the Kix box was re-designed and went to their site to check 'em out and notice there appear to be no gluten in the ingredients!!! Could it be?
But why are they not labeled gluten free??
According to someone from General Mills: "Kix has been reformulated so that it no longer contains oats. However, the company has decided not to specifically label Kix gluten free nor claim it to be so, as cross-contamination is still a possibility".
Soooo.... they removed oat flour from the recipe, but they're not making them in a dedicated facility, why don't they just manufacture Kix with Chex & the GF Bisquick?! Problem solved!
Anyway - i'm rushing to go to a meeting -- but anyone heard anything about Kix or eaten them? They (along with cheerios) were my favorite cereal growing up!
**UPDATE: I ate the kix & did not feel any effects of glutening (be aware though, that I am not as sensitive as some and am not sure many times that I have been accidentally glutened) anyway - they don't taste as amazing as I remember, but they're definitely good.
