Q&A: Why do people pay more money for “Gluten-free” Rice Krispies when ALL Rice Krispies are Gluten-free?
Question: Why do people pay more money for “Gluten-free” Rice Krispies when ALL Rice Krispies are Gluten-free?
Saw a box of “Gluten-free” Rice Krispies in the grocery store yesterday and had to laugh. As someone who was once believed to have Celiac disease, I had to do the gluten-free diet for over a year. I also had a wheat allergy so the gluten-free products were my friend. Needless to say, Rice Krispies were the only decent tasting wheat-free cereal. Als noted a 22 oz box of regular Rice Krispies were a mere $ 2.99 while the 12 oz “Gluten-free” variety were marked at $ 3.89. So I ask, anyone who needs to be on a Gluten-free diet should also know rice and rice flour are your main ingredients in the grain group, so why wouldn’t they simply purchase the larger, cheaper, boxes?
