Product Review

Product Review on GF DF Cereal 

Company: Glutino
Product: Gluten-Free "Berry Sensible Beginnings" - Corn rice flakes with strawberries. 
Kashrut: OU-(Parve)
Main Ingredients: Corn meal, long grain white rice, sugar, freeze dried strawberry slices, salt, soy lechtin, vitamins and minerals, alpha tocoperols, reduced iron, niacinamide, pyrixodine hydrochloride, riboflavin, Vitamin A, Folic Acid, and Vitamin B12

I genuinely liked this cereal--which was shocking. Unlike a lot of GF "mezonot-like" products, this one actually has the texture of cereal. My complaint is that it is a little bit hard on the teeth (yowzer) and the strawberry slices were a bit awkward, although slightly tasty. Overall, this is a good GF cereal.

The Non-Dairy Milk 
Company: Turtle Mountain's 'So Delicious' Coconut Milk-Vanilla 
Kashrut: Kehilla  Kosher- Parve on made on dairy equipment. http://www.kehillakosher.org/
Other "hekscher:" This product comes with GF-Circle certification, is vegan, is certified that it does not use genetically modified foods!
I ate this cereal with the 'So Delicious' product 'Coconut Milk-Vanlla.' I'm a huge fan of ALL of the 'So Delicious' products that I've tried so far. The company is owned by a frum Jew, Mark Brawerman. All products are parve (although some are made on dairy equipment.)
Disclaimer: I'm someone who generally likes things that are sweet. While I don't love things that sickeningly sweet, my favorite wine is moscato (although my favorite chocolate is dark.) This milk is on the sweet side, and if you're someone who is sensitive to that, it may not be the best product for you or you may want to mix it up with water.

WARNING about Glutino products: Not all Glutino products are kosher. I made this mistake yesterday when I went to the supermarket (Hannaford) and picked up some Glutino crackers that had no hekscher! However, they weren't absolutely amazing (they needed cheese or jelly), so you can live without them. Now, I just have to find someone to give them to.
