Custom Choice Cereal Review and Giveaway

We eat A LOT of cereal around our house and we all seem to have our favorites.  I love Raisin Bran and Grape Nuts, the oldest loves Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs and Apple Jacks and little one loves Cheerios of any flavor.  Hubby will eat just about any kind of cereal hot or cold.  There are sometimes when we will have a cereal dinner, maybe because it's too hot to cook or just for something different.  Little ones eats cereal for her snacks, so we always have a different variety on hand and usually buy several boxes a week.  It is a quick breakfast when I am on the go or getting the oldest ready for school, I just love the convenience of cereal.  They have a great selection on the market these days as well and it seems that a lot of the cereal companies are making healthier options and improving some of the popular cereals by cutting down on some of the sugar that is added.  This is good because as a mom I worry about all the sugar that I give my kids and try to cut down on it in numerous ways.  We also love granola and cereal that has a mixture of fruits, grains and nuts.  I have found a great place to make your own delicious cereal mix using only the finest and freshest ingredients as well as it being completely Gluten-Free.  Custom Choice Cereal is a wonderful place to go and make your own customized cereal mix with just the right mix of whatever you like.  Whether it be strawberries, apples, pears, and a delicious mix of seeds and nuts, you are in control.  The process is easy:
1.) Choose your base
2.) Chose your ingredients (up to 11 ingredients)
3.) Name Your Mix
4.) Receive Your Cereal at home
5.) Indulge

Trust me, indulge is what we did.  Now, I have never been on a gluten free diet and neither has any of my family members, but we have tried a variety of gluten free foods in the past and you would never really know that this cereal was missing the gluten.  It is delicious, fresh and full of flavor.  Here is what I added to my mix:
*Base-Cinnamon Granola
*Ingredients-Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Strawberries, Pecan Pieces, Cherries, Slivered Almonds, Organic Blueberries, and Banana Chips
*Mama's Mix

I absolutely loved this cereal mix.  It had HUGE pieces of strawberries, which are my favorite fruit going all throughout and the fruit combined with the cinnamon granola was definitely a great and flavorful combination.  I actually tried a separate piece of everything to base my review on.  The fruit was juicy and had a fresh picked taste and the nuts were crunchy.  The seeds were flavorful and not salty at all.  This cereal mix is good with milk, but I love to snack on it while I'm sitting here at the computer doing my work, it's a delicious and healthy snack that really satisfies my hunger.  There is a lot of different combinations to try and there is also a handy nutrition facts sheet that updates as you add and subtract ingredients.  They also have a code on the bag of you mix that allows you to reorder your mix if you'd like (which I know I would love to in the future).  There is over 1.8 billion combination possibilities over at Custom Choice Cereal, so you can NEVER get bored with the same old mix.  I think it would be a blast to try something new all of the time!  You don't have to be on a Gluten-Free diet to enjoy these cereals, but if you are Custom Choice Cereal makes it so easy to get the taste and mix that you want without losing all of the flavor.  I would HIGHLY recommend this company to my friends and family.

Custom Choice Cereal enables you to create great tasting gluten-free cereal from a variety of high-quality ingredients and delivers each mix conveniently to your doorstep.  
Custom Choice Cereal was founded in 2008 while Hajo, the owner and creator was on the phone with a gluten-intolerant friend.  He learned first hand about limited choice, limited availability, and the often mediocre taste of gluten-free cereal.  Having realized the challenge of finding a variety of tasty gluten-free cereal, he and a group of students came up with a plan to transform the cereal world.  At Custom Choice Cereal, they make your taste their priority and understand the very specific needs and concerns of being on a gluten-free diet.  They choose only the highest quality ingredients, focus exclusively on gluten-free items, testing all of their ingredients for gluten and potential cross contamination, and maintain a dedicated gluten-free facility.  The goal of Custom Choice Cereal is also to raise awareness for celiac disease and gluten intolerance in order to reduce and ultimately eliminate the unnecessary suffering that results from a false or missing diagnosis.  For those who live a gluten-free lifestyle, Custom Choice Cereal aims to introduce normalcy into the cereal bowl and to bring relief to diet anxiety. 

Custom Choice Cereal is proud to be able to present a question and answer session with celiac and gluten-free expert Dr. Stephen Wagen, who is also known as The Gluten Free Doctor.  This gives you the opportunity to ask any and all of your questions when it comes to Celiac Disease, Gluten-Free living and so much more.  Here is the link:
