397420397420B004XAPIOQA32B9TLFTOCP5FA.Reboredo01021316131200What's the Difference?I don't understand why they had to make another "gluten-free" rice krispies cereal. Aren't they already gluten-free because they're made with rice? What's the difference, exactly, besides their marketing? Can anyone explain this to me?

Couldn't be more pleased! For anyones reference, I bought a total of 15 pounds, and have atleast a pound of extras after filling 213 boxes with 5-6 kisses each!

product came fresh, on time and kisses, as always, were a delight to eat.

happy to have a free for the taking to make their day. Thank you. :)
397424397424B0014UH6WUA291PEWULSAOY2M. Cunningham "bug"9941206316800like it, don't love itThis is not my favorite soy milk powder; I prefer Better Than Milk Soy for its consistency and solubility. This stuff is just much more difficult to dissolve/prepare. However, I'll probably continue to buy this product because the packaging is minimal, the taste is good, and the price is great.
397425397425B0014UH6WUA1FM6KDC6GGS2OFrank A. Kotch "Comfut.us"111241192924800Great ProductThe product is great, but the shipping and handling is more than the product. This is not acceptable.
397426397426B0014UH6WUA3BU3GXRSTAJ6EBJA's mom91011231459200Won't order againI have been using Better than Milk for years, but I thought I would try this product. It doesn't dissolve well, it's the consistency of liquid pudding if you use the manufacturer's proportions, and it doesn't taste good; overall I'd rate it poorly. It might do OK in cooking. About the only thing it has going for it is that, unlike Better than Milk, it is pure soy with nothing else added.
397427397427B0014UH6WUA25YCWZALU31ODThom Schreck "jamms"4451253491200Love this soy milkHere's how I make it. 5 cups of water. 5 tablespoons of soy milk powder, 1 teaspoon of sugar, .5 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Make it in the blender and keep it there. You will need to mix before each use. This is just as good as silk if you make it the way I described. If you use too much powder or you don't add the sweetener, it's very chalky and doesn't taste good.
397411397411B004XAPIOQA61JXZCEXBMV4Theresa Christie "Angeleyes"1211313193600Tastes like cardboard......These were actually cheaper in my local grocery store so i figured i'd give them a try. I've had gluten free before, and quite a few are pretty tasty....but these tasted like I was eating the box, not the cereal.....very disappointed.
397428397428B0014UH6WUA3Q5884XBP83BFN. Renz "LakeLady"3351235088000Almost no sugar - Great tasteThis product is fantastic. We wanted to find a less expensive and less sweet soy milk than the pre-mixed offerings in the grocery stores, and this is it. You can make it to the richness you desire (we prefer ours a bit lighter than the 1/4 cup to 8 oz. ratio), it is perfect for cooking because it is not sweet. It blends wonderfully by hand with a whisk, the dry mix has a long shelf life in your cupboard, and it is much less expensive than the pre-mixed grocery store brands. Make sure you mix it a day ahead, and shake the container well before each use. I love being able to make as much or as little as I need, saving space in my refrigerator.
397412397412B004XAPIOQA36W5KJTVB60EHironicfury1221310169600A big disappointmentI've been looking forward to having Rice Krispies again ever since I heard Kellogg's was going to make them GF. Unfortunately, instead of just taking the barley malt out of the regular Rice Krispies and making the cereal GF, like Post did with Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles, Kellogg's decided to waste the money creating a brown rice version of the cereal. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how this makes business sense, but it must, because it certainly did NOT make sense to my taste buds.

Being GF, I'm used to bland, chalky, soggy, or just bad tasting things, but I expected more from Kellogg's. This cereal does not taste like the original - it isn't nearly as sweet, tastes weird when dry, and gets soggy extremely fast in milk. The only thing it tastes "normal" is as Rice Krispy Treats. If you like the natural foods brown rice krispies, then you'll probably like this. Otherwise, don't bother unless you're hankering for the Treats.
397429397429B0014UH6WUA2ICD64WO3GYMOGarden Rose1151268697600great plain, as part of fruit smoothie, or a cream substitute for coffeeThe recipe on the package tastes horrible but that's because they say to add too much soy powder. In my opinion it tastes great with the following recipe:

1 heaping tablespoon soy powder
1 cup water
1 heaping tablespoon sugar or sweetener

The ingredients can be multiplied for larger amounts, but it's best to drink it immediately because if you let it sit for hours the ingredients separate which ruins the drink. I add the ingredients in a drink shaker and shake it for about 30 seconds, but a blender works too. That recipe creates a light almost milky drink which is mild and pleasant.

This soy powder is also a great non-dairy substitute for cream in coffee. It can be used as a thickener for smoothies, but first try adding small amounts to find what amount is best for you. The soy recipe plus 1 cup white rice and extra sugar (mixed in a blender for 6 seconds) makes a tapioca-like dessert.
397413397413B004XAPIOQAXOL6YBUN2DAWTheShef2431308873600For the price......I would go with something else. Check the price, this Kellogg's cereal is over $4 a 12-oz box, even at the current Amazon sale price if you have to pay shipping.
I picked up a box at Kroger this week and it was over $4. Don't necessarily like to see the BHT but I'm not alarmist about it. As long as we eat GF, my kids and I are certainly healthy enough for a little detox. My problem: there is nothing about this cereal to justify the high price! The flavor is just flat - they didn't even substitute the signature malt flavoring with some rice malt syrup. This has got to be made nearly as cheaply as regular rice krispies - I feel like many companies slap on a "gluten free" label and think that justifies a hefty price. (Kudos to the Chex brand for NOT doing this.) I don't buy many convenience foods and I don't allow my kids to eat cereal very often so I will probably only buy these on special occasions when we want Rice Krispies Treats - the real deal, because I haven't found a single "health food" version of crispy rice cereal that has that same crispy (not crunchy,) airy, slightly flattened shape and texture that really make a good crispy treat.
397430397430B0014UH6WUA355AWB89RCK8Zjackson1211322870400Tastes funkyWe bought this as a fake non dairy, "natural" creamer for coffee, just tastes wierd, I'll leave it at that..
397414397414B004XAPIOQA1OW46XU2D8BLAsweetpotato0121311206400Not all that I had hoped forThe flavor was a disappointment and the texture doesn't come close. I have not tried them in Rice Krispie treats yet, so I'll hold out judgement on that. I bought my first box of rice Chex and it fullfills my rice krispies cravings! Think I'll try the treats with that instead of the Gluten free Rice Krispies.
397431397431B00020XNU2A2CG5T4H5CB3IOGeorge T. Norris404151146873600Best of the Belgian Machine-made ChocolatesIntroduced to Leonidas several years ago, on successive trips to Brussels I returned with the two other, more well-known brands (Godiva and Neuhaus), when I couldn't get to Leonidas before my plane left. My wife advised me that in the future it was Leonidas or nothing.

They are machine-made so the price is not bad (as opposed to the hand-made varieties), but they are also made fresh without preservatives so they need to be eaten or refrigerated quickly. In this house, the refrigerator rarely sees the package.

They are excellent and a treat you owe yourself.
397415397415B004XAPIOQA2O6TVTQEEWS4EMom moves fast3611310688000Terrible!I don't know what cereal the five star raters are eating, but it tastes like cardboard! They are mistaken that people who can't eat gluten always want to eat healthy. Get rid of the whole grain brown rice - yuk! There are plenty of "healthy" gluten free cereals on the shelves. Just give me the cereal I ate as a kid! People who cannot eat gluten want their food to taste like the product made with gluten. Rice Chex tastes way better than this! I didn't realize the used BHT until I read these reviews. Go back to the drawing board Kelloggs!
397432397432B00020XNU2A1QSS9BLNW3RQ4db "dubby"424451158883200Belgian FavoriteWe have lived in Belgium for 8 of the last 24 months. There is no question that the cheapest Belgian chocolate is better than anything you can buy in America. It is tough for us to gag down American chocolate anymore. They grind the cocoa beans finer and use less fat and less sugar, so it is much better for you. I am diabetic and it does not send my sugars up.

Belgians have very strong opinions when it comes to which chocolate is "best". They don't always agree, but more Belgians said Leonida's was the best than any other single brand we heard. This is not something you eat. You savor and treasure every piece. The price is good and you will not be disappointed.
397416397416B004XAPIOQA3F3H0HDQ96ODUC. Beckett "Vincent Starr"4911310601600Contains BHTButylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), also known as butylhydroxytoluene, is a lipophilic (fat-soluble) organic compound that is primarily used as an antioxidant food additive (E number E321) as well as an antioxidant additive in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, jet fuels, rubber, petroleum products, electrical transformer oil, and embalming fluid.

It's a super preservative that companies use. I will not eat GF Chex for the same reason.
397417397417B004XAPIOQA9VEXJJKHHQXXConcerned Mom51111310256000Shame on Kellog'sWhy does this product have BHT? BHT is NOT healthy! It is an ingredient in jet fuels, rubber, petroleum products, electrical transformer oil, and embalming fluid. Shame on Kellog's.
397418397418B004XAPIOQA7LZ5BAIZ1BMRwadaman0311309910400Snap Crackle and Pop fizzlesI was so looking forward to trying Rice Krispies.... I can buy a better product from a local store that tastes the way I want when I make the marshmallow treats.
397419397419B004XAPIOQA17DHSQXZHY7O5C. Hein "C. Hein"1611314230400horrible!I've been gluten free for 7 years and have been eating regular Rice Krispies nearly every morning with no problem. What a TERRIBLE decision to go with brown rice! Did they even TALK to someone who is GF? I put tons of sugar on it just to get through it, but I'll go back to Chex and Honeycombs.
397433397433B00020XNU2A17DJ05LDINF0BMoonlight "old story"161651139616000Best chocolate I've had in many years!I had an excellent shopping experience with Leonidas. From my experience, I can assure you that if you ever have any problem, Leonidas will be courteous and considerate in dealing with you. As for the chocolate, my husband and I are very fond of dark chocolate and have tried many brands before. We found Leonidas ideally bittersweet in its taste and also generous in quantity. In fact, the best of all the European brands we've tried in our five years of dating. It's the kind of chocolate that you not only would buy for gifts but would also want to buy and keep for your snack.
397434397434B00020XNU2A281NPSIMI1C2RRebecca of Amazon "The Rebecca Review"171851112659200Dark and DeliciousIf it is possible to fall madly in love with a box of chocolates, then the assortment is the perfect place to start such an adventure. These chocolate are named after Leonidas Kestekidis, who definitely knew how to create chocolates for the true chocolate connoisseur.

When he moved back to Belgium he not only married his true love, he created chocolates the world now adores. When you taste these chocolates, your taste buds will also finally know true chocolate happiness. Whether you try one of these with a cup of coffee or tea or enjoy one as a daily indulgence, these will impress.

If being "in love" gives you a zest for life, then the "I Love You" chocolate with dreamy lemon filling embodies this sentiment. Each chocolate has a unique design and the I Love You chocolate has two hearts, ribbons and a seal. After you sample the variety of chocolates, specific flavors will stand out as favorites.

Here are my favorite creamy fillings (ganache and butter cream) which come in dark, white and milk chocolate depending on the selection (dark if you order this box):

Antoinette - A smooth Brandy flavored ganache

Lingoit Lait - Absolutely delicious vanilla flavored fresh butter cream filling. Time definitely stopped while tasting this chocolate.

Irrésistible - Dark chocolate and Strawberry sauce.

For ever - If you love coffee this may be one of the most delicious milk or dark chocolate chocolates ever made as it is filled with a special coffee cream that has hints of caramel. I ordered an entire box of these and they come in a variety of flavors. The milk chocolate and cherry filling is like Claude Debussy's Rêverie. It is difficult to describe besides saying it is like a delicate cherry icing wrapped in milk chocolate.

Merveilleux - Milk or dark chocolate filled with coffee ganache.

Europe - Dark or milk chocolate filled with rum filling.

Ganache - Milk or dark chocolate with pure ganache.

Tosca - Milk chocolate with a special ganache.

Poésie - Dark chocolate and a Cointreau filling.

Antoinette - Delicate caramel hints in the milk chocolate coating mingle nicely with the vanilla filling.

Eve - Milk or dark chocolate with a creamy dreamy banana filling.

Alexandre le grand - A milk or dark chocolate with caramel cream.

Also Recommended:

If you wish to also try the Napolitains, I'd suggest the 1 pound sampler Ballotin with six varieties. You may also want to look for the new Palet d'Or. A deeply delicious and strong bitter chocolate filled with ganache. The center is made with butter, cream and chocolate and the outer coating is a masterpiece with gold decorations.

Leonidas now has over 1700 stores and sales locations worldwide and they offer over 80 varieties of fresh chocolates. The chocolates are air freighted weekly from Brussels so you will always find the quality to be superior.

My chocolates arrived fast and were as fresh as if I had purchased them in Belgium. They were carefully packaged in the famous gold boxes with signature/seasonal wrapping and a ribbon. The boxes were then placed in protective Styrofoam containers to protect the chocolates during shipping. The expedited shipping is recommended from May to early September.

I've had many different types of chocolate from Belgium and all over, and can guarantee that Leonidas is the best af all of chocolatiers. Great sampling of ivory, milk and dark chocolate. If you love chocolate try it. You will not regret it.

I am told the choclates are delicious!
