Have you checked thier website?  Maybe write to the company and see if they sell them in the UK.

See if there is a gluten free store near you. That's how I first found them when I was living up north. You can also write to the grocery stores near you or that you use and request that they start carrying the Betty Crocker gluten free brand. If you present it to them with the fact that few/ no other suppliers in the area have yet there is a demand for it and would thus increase their sales they are more likely to start carrying it. Best of luck!

I've tried the Betty Crocker mixes, and wasn't impressed. I don't know about anyone else, but in my area they are more expensive than the all-natural gluten-free cake mixes I buy at health food stores. I can't understand why they're so costly.

I always find that speaking to the store manager helps. If you ask for what you need they are usually happy to help and will order what customers want.  Good luck!

I tried it once (I was in a pinch) and was unimpressed, too.  Rest assured - you are not missing out!  :)

If you are very sensitive to gluten be careful with those mixes. I had the "gluten free" brownies from Betty Crocker and got a typical gluten reaction from it. There are several negative reviews on (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) of people who had gluten reactions to Betty Crocker "gluten free" mixes.

My family -- five with celiac disease eat Betty Crocker brownies often and have never had a problem...I however can not eat them due to other intolerances...perhaps you have other yet to be discovered problem foods?

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

Just weighing in on this-- I've used these mixes many times and have never had a problem. That is not to say you couldn't.

I also wonder if there might be another intolerance at play here.

These cake mixes are handy when you're on the road or staying at someone's house.  They can be found in most grocery stores now on the West Coast.    I always "doctor" them up for best results.  I've not had a reaction to them.
