Erewhon Gluten-Free Cereal Giveaway

image

This giveaway has ended.

I’m very excited about this giveaway for two reasons:

1. It’s a great product.
2. I get to select 5 winners!

What Makes Erewhon Gluten-Free Cereal Great?

First, it is gluten-free. The Erewhon web site has a FAQ page entitled Gluten Free Diet/Celiac Disease, which contains a wealth of useful and accurate information. I knew that probably meant they are careful when it comes to producing gluten-free products, but I asked for more information.

Their allergen statement put me at ease. They keep employees well informed and take necessary steps to prevent cross contamination. Their final paragraph of the statement says,

“Gluten-free products are tested at various points in the production process to ensure that cross contamination has not occurred. The gluten testing is sensitive to 20 ppm.”

Second, the cereal is healthy. They use whole grain brown rice, corn, and amaranth. They are organic, and some have no added sweeteners. Those that are sweetened use natural sweeteners.

Third, they taste good. I was able to sample all of their gluten-free cereal, so I’m going to take a minute to review them.

My favorites are the rice cereals, mostly because I like the texture and crunchiness better than the other cereals. I also liked mixing a rice cereal with a corn cereal. The Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice contains the most sugar with 11g per serving. I liked mixing it with the corn flakes which has less than 1g sugar. It balanced the sweetness and the texture/crunchiness.

I particularly like the cereals that contain fruit with Strawberry Crisp being my absolute favorite. It is made from brown rice and corn, it has a nice crunch to it, and the strawberries are so flavorful.

My least favorite was the Aztec Crunchy Corn & Amaranth. I didn’t care for the flavor and I didn’t like the texture at all. It gave my teeth a squeaky feeling. That was the only cereal I wouldn’t recommend, but that’s just me.

What & How Can You Win?

What: Five (5) winners will receive:

How: Leave a comment on this post telling me which three cereals you would like to receive.

Erewhon gluten free cereals come in seven varieties:

One comment per person, and please do not enter unless you (or a loved one) are on a gluten-free diet.

The giveaway will be open until Friday, June 12, at 4:00 p.m. eastern time. I’ll contact the winners over the weekend. If I don’t hear back by Monday night, I’ll choose a new winner/winners.

Important: Make sure your comment provides a way for me to get in touch with you. If it doesn’t link to a blog, I need an email address.

You can find more giveaways at Two of a kind, working on a full house.

From when I first started to be gluten free, cerel was one of the things I missed the most. I've tried some other brands that are so sweet, they just taste as if you're eating candy. Thankfully, Chex now has a selection of GF cereals but, yet, it is all the same. What I would give to eat something similar to rice krispies again, or cheerios, or anything other than Chex.

I see this brand of cereal all the time in the stores but at $6 a box, I just can't bring myself to buying it in fear I may end up throwing it away. GF stuff in my area is so expensive, I really have to wait until it goes on sale which doesn't happen to often.

Coming across this giveaway on a search for coupons brings me hope. Thank you for even doing this in the first place for, even if I don't win, you'll be saving some lucky individual some money. People with celiac's disease shouldn't be milked for all their pennies just because we have to have a restricted diet.

THANK YOU!

•Erewhon Gluten Free Crispy Brown Rice

oops, posted on the rhubarb one...-well following your blog through e-mail now.
Although I've been 'wheat-free' for 8 years now (wheat, tomatoes & palm oils trigger migraines), my teen son was just diagnosed 'gluten-free'. It's a bit overwhelming trying to find enough inexpensive food to feed a teenager. He said the
Erewhon Strawberry Crisp Flakes, Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice with Mixed Berries and Erewhon Corn Flakes sounded the best to him. He's been very open to experimenting different gluten-free foods.
 
(oooOOOooo I hope I get picked, crossing my fingers!)

LOVE THIS! My daughter is on a gluten, cane sugar, and dairy free diet and she loves this cereal. (It is one of the few that does not use cane sugar thank goodness). Our new fave is the brown rice with mixed berries. She also likes the regular brown rice. I haven't seen the strawberrry so I'm sure she would like to try that - no just looked and it has cane sugar. So, we'd love 2 boxes of the mixed berries.

This is great! Not many places you can win allergen free products - THANKS!
 
I have 2 Silly's and 2 are diabetic!! I would LOVE to try the new GF cereal...it is so hard to find yummy things for the boys! Good luck to the winners! :)
 
We love & support Erewhon "rice crispy" cereal already, but would LOVE to try some of the other varieties you have for the giveaway! My oldest son (12) has Celiac and Down Syndrome & love regular Rice Crispies prior to gf -- he used to eat them dry, one-by-one and bite them in half to eat them! LOL We were thrilled to find a gf option in Erewhon for him & my nut allergic kiddos. We would love to win Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice, Crispy Brown Rice w/Mixed Berries & the Strawberry Crisp Flakes -- THANK YOU for the opportunity :o) Kelly@densononline.com
