I can't find them anywhere! I'm in NC and looked in a harris teeter and a food lion. When i didn't see them on the shelf I went to customer service and asked if I could request a product and they basically told me no I would just have to keep coming back and checking. grr...i was so hoping to make cookies this week :(

I want to hear how they are too though in the off chance they do get them here in Fayettenam :P

I am in Fort Worth, TX and am not surprised that I haven't found them yet. Considering how long it took to have the gluten free versions of chex on the shelves, I am hoping by July 1 at this rate. In the meantime enjoying some Pamela's Extreme Chocolate Mini Cookies.

i don't think the betty crocker mixes are out but you should try the Bob's RedMill gluten free chocolate cake mix, it's really good.

I heard that they were supposed to come out June 1st. I went on the website to locate which stores would have them and none pop up.

Dallas area here, and I forgot to look today while I was at the store. Will try to check in the next couple of days and report back.

RE: Chex - it took quite a while for me to be able to find the Honey Nut Chex, and have just recently found the Chocolate Chex. Still no Strawberry or Cinnamon, though.

Is there a link on the Betty Crocker site to look for store locations that carry an item??

Thanks

I looked at Central Market in Mill Creek, WA and they didn't have them. Not sure that was the best place to look. They carry a lot of gluten-free stuff already and tend to have more organic stuff.

A person in my local group found them at Kroger with the gluten cake mixes. She said they were 4.95 a box.

Ditto the questions. So anxious to try the mixes ;)

I did find Kix again that is the new formula. Haven't seen it since January. Has the corn cob on the front and not made with oats (doesn't state gluten-free yet)

I see you've already learned what the rest of NC calls Fayetteville :lol:

Don't hold your breath for Harris Teeter to carry it. Not saying they won't, but don't hold your breath. I would try Kroger first, if you have one close by. They also have some Pamela's mixes, and some Bob's Red Mill mixes.

I am in CO and have not found any of the new gluten-free mixes. Still have not found the strawberry, chocolate or cinnamon chex. I have found the honey nut but only at SuperTarget. King Soopers (aka Kroger) has had the rice and corn chex but no other flavors.

I am so anxious for these new things to hit the shelves!

It's not available to Canadians yet...don't know how long we'll be waiting. For those in the US who haven't found them yet, try asking your store manager to bring them in.

Yes! We have them here in Missouri. I bought them today at Schnucks. They were $3.99 a box. There were four varieties; devils food cake, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and vanilla cake. I bought the cookies and brownies. I made the cookies today and they were really good. They tasted like "regular" cookies, very sweet and no strange after taste. My picky son ate three at one sitting. He loved them. My toddler daughter said, "More!" after she ate one. I am going back to to store tomorrow and buying more!

Betty Crocker's items won't be on shelves for 2-3 more months. A friends wife work's there and gave me some samples yesterday. We live in SoCal and she has been handing out samples. They are trying to get the word out. I made the choc. chip cookies from a box and they were easy and wonderful!!! My husband had four and I had 1 1/2. And most importantly no sign of being glutened or cc. I hope they get them out soon.

All we have is Martin's and Food Kitty around here, neither of which has them yet. I really didn't expect Food Lion to - if I had to shop there I'd either go broke or hungry because they stock virtually NOTHING we eat and if they do you need to take out a loan to buy it. I DID expect Martin's to, since they have 4 aisles of what amounts to a "health food store", complete with 6 or 8 freezers, soy and coconut yogurt, gluten-free dog food, every kind of gluten-free pasta, fresh and frozen gluten-free bread, really rather amazing for a "chain" and at reasonable prices. I pay less than $2.50 a box for the Nut Thins crackers (which I would adore regardless of my gluten status). I did ask today at Martin's at the Customer Service desk and they're supposed to call me tomorrow. I'm going to try the only other store (Weis, which I believe is part of Giant Eagle) around tomorrow; but it's like 25 miles away. We did have a Kroger at one time but people just didn't warm up to it and it's now a Food Lion (ugh).

Dying to try the mixes, which is really funny, since I've never, ever, been a cake, cookie, pastry, pasta kind of gal.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
