In June, I wrote about a new company, Custom Choice Cereal, that allows you to create your own gluten free cereal mix. You can view the old post here. Custom Choice Cereal was created by Hajo and Patrick who are two recent graduates of the MBA program at UNC.
Now that the website is up and running I had a chance to create a mix of my own. I decided to order Good Morning Flakes with banana chips, strawberries, and almonds. It is delicious!
You have the option of first picking your base: Cinnamon Granola, Corn Flakes, or Good Morning Flakes. Then, you choose your favorite dried fruits including apples, apricots, banana chips, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, pears, pineapples, raisins, and strawberries. Next, you can add seeds and nuts to your cereal like almonds, coconut, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and walnuts.
Risk of cross-contamination is nearly zero. Custom Choice Cereal uses ingredients that are naturally gluten free. All mixes are tested for the presence of gluten being less than 20 parts per million. The mixing facility is entirely gluten free.
You can choose to have your cereal shipped to you or you can pick it up from the facility.
I definitely recommend that you support Choice Choice Cereal by giving this local company a try!
