Custom Choice Cereal Review

This is the coolest gluten free product, just because of the concept behind it! This is right up my alley, especially with the custom pizza labels I make for Sam’s pizza boxes or the GF Happy Meals. Packaging/presentation can make the difference between resistance, acceptance and fully embracing something new or different, especially for young children that have food allergies, intolerances, sensitivities…

I bought a package of Custom Choice Cereal because you get to customize it!

There are four simple steps:

  1. Select your base cereal. Choose from Cinnamon Granola, Corn Flakes or Good Morning Flakes.
  2. Add your favorite dried fruits if you want them. Choose from Apples, Apricots, Banana Chips, Blueberries, Cherries, Cranberries, Pears, Pineapple, Raisins, and/or Strawberries.
  3. Complete your mix with nuts and seeds, again, if you want them. Choose from Almonds, Coconut, Hazelnuts, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, Pistachios, Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds and/or Walnuts.
  4. Name your mix at checkout.

How cool is that? Custom Choice Cereals are also mixed in a dedicated gluten free facility!

I have long been missing one of my favorite cereals from the gluten world, Raisin Bran. My favorite was Crispy Wheats and Raisins, which apparently is no longer in production. So, I took the opportunity to make my own GF version of “Raisin Bran” at Custom Choice Cereal. Even though the cereal flake is not wheat bran, that was never the reason I liked Raisin Bran to begin with…I liked the raisins, any cereal flake will do! So here is my “Custom Choice Cereal:”

A really neat aspect of building your own cereal is that there is a nutritional label off to the side and it updates with each add-in! Is your label showing that your cereal is little low on protein or fiber for you? Just go back and add it in before you checkout!

  1. I chose the Good Morning Flakes: Organic Corn Flakes enriched with Flax, Buckwheat, Quinoa, and Amaranth.
  2. Then I added Raisins.
  3. I omitted the Seeds and Nuts
  4. At checkout, I named my cereal “Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom.” (Maybe I should have thought of something else. My 6 year old seems to think I am “famous” because of this blog (so cute) and he likes to tell people this regardless of how often I try to correct him. And now he is telling people that I am soooooo famous that I even have a cereal named after my blog! LOL!) 🙂

A 12-oz. package of my Custom Choice Cereal cost $4.88 (not including shipping).

Sam's eyes literally popped out of his head when he saw this! The boys loved this cereal, (and so did mom, dad, Nana and Papa).

Yummy! Having "GF replacements" like this that are as good as, if not better, than the foods we miss from our former gluten-filled lives, just makes it so much easier to adhere to the gluten-free lifestyle and actually say, I would not go back, even if I could! 😀

This would make a really cool gluten free gift too! I am going to order a couple more packages today. One each for Sam and Luke with their names on the package and put them in their stockings for Christmas. I am absolutely convinced that they will gobble up all of the nutritional goodness without a single picky fuss. All because of the packaging with their names on the cereal! How could they not love a cereal named after them?? 😉
