Apple Cinnamon Chex

Chex have been on the market for the longest time, but I never truly purchased the cereal to eat until I noticed and purchased the Chex Vanilla. That cereal has since become a favorite but after finishing the box I decided to branch out and perhaps try a few different flavors. The flavor I opted to give a go was the Apple Cinnamon Chex.
According to the box, the cereal is sprinkled with real apple and cinnamon and for those who have a gluten intolerance the cereal is gluten free. You can definitely taste the apple cinnamon flavoring … which really reminds me of apple cinnamon instant oatmeal. Weird comparison, but it’s truly what it reminded me of after the first bite.  If you generally enjoy an apple cinnamon flavor, you’d more than likely enjoy this. It’s not a bad cereal, it’s flavored well, but it’s not one of my favorites. That is perhaps due to my comparison to the deliciousness that is Vanilla Chex.
A serving is ¾ cup which is 130 calories or 3 points plus values.

Vanilla Chex

I go through phases with cereals where I eat cereal for weeks straight and then I abandon them for a while until the cycle returns.  Needless to say, I’ve been on a cereal kick, so the new cereal I wanted to try was a new release from Chex.  Vanilla Chex found their way into my shopping cart and I have to say, I’m really glad they did.
One of the great things is the cereal is packed with flavor in every bite AND it’s gluten free (for those gluten resistant folks).  The cereal is vanilla flavored, but it reminds me of vanilla frosted cake.  It’s great as a sweet snack on its own, or in a bowl with milk and fruit for breakfast.  I do find when eating with strawberries and banana with almond milk, it brings down the sweetness of the cereal and mutes the “vanilla cake” flavoring a bit.  It’s a very light and crispy cereal.  A ¾ cup serving is 3 points plus values.
There are a few other flavors available – the original Rice Chex, Chocolate Chex, Cinnamon Chex and Apple Cinnamon Chex.  I may have to dabble into some of the other flavors at some point.  Apple Cinnamon perhaps!
Have you tried any of the new flavored Chex cereals?
