Review: Enjoy Life Foods Crunchy Rice and Crunchy Flax Cereals

Flax Cereal

The very nice folks at Enjoy Life Foods were kind enough to send me a free box of each Crunchy Rice and Crunchy Flax cereals to try. Some other bloggers have also received these and have suprised me with what they have done with them. One person made rice cereal treats! I wish I could remember who that was... (comment if it's you!). I never think outside the box (heh) when it comes to this stuff. I just poured some in a bowl and ate it with almond milk.

These cereals are all natural and contain minimal ingredients. The crunchy rice is made from rice flour, rice bran, raisin juice concentrate, honey and salt. The crunchy flax contains whole sorghum flour, ground flax seed, honey, raisin juice concentrate, and salt. I love that!
Enjoy Life foods are also free of wheat, dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish and shellfish. These two cereals are also free of potato, casein, sesame and sulfites.

So how are they? Well, I like them. They are very crunchy and they absorb a lot of milk yet stay crunchy. They could use some fresh fruit or whatever other addition you like to give them some more sweetness and flavor. These both would be great to use in various recipes I think. I will have to look into it. If you have tried these and have suggestions, leave them in the comments! Thanks to Enjoy Life Foods for sending these to me!!

Hi Jen!

I made some cereal bars using the Crunchy Flax Cereal: http://adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com/2010/01/07/crunchy-flax-cereal-bars/

Kim Bouldin, from Gluten Free Is Life made some yummy looking bars too, adding Cacao Nibs and Cranberries and: http://www.glutenfreeislife.com/?p=2387

I second that about your photos.

I'm not a huge fan of that cereal. But I think it would be phenomenal in a krispy treat bar made with some rice creme! Good lookin' out!
