I'm sorry I can't help with your question but I just bought the Betty Crocker mixes tonight and made the banana bread with the yellow cake mix

and the grass hopper bars with the devils food cake mix

which I modified a bit more toward the cake recipe on the box.

Wow! They were so easy to make and very tasty. In addition I can't believe how professional they look. My baked goods never ever turned out looking so good.

I hope you get the mixes in your area soon. I had never made Betty Crocker anything even before going gluten free but after trying the other stuff available to gluten free people over the last few years its nice to have Betty Crocker available. I'll be buying her gluten free stuff all the time now.

We have tried the brownies, the chocolate cake and the Bisquick, however, we had to pack our suitcases up with the product. It is made in Canada, but not sold here. I've written to Betty and begged. Your turn! :D

Hi Rideallways,

I am not sure where you are, I am in the Toronto area. I go to Buffalo and stock up on gluten free things such as the Betty Crocker cake mixes. I have also found the gluten-free Bisquick mix and I buy Chex Cereal all the time. The cereal is much cheaper then buying cereal here. I have not had to pay duty or taxes on groceries, however there are some limits and I suggest that you look at the govt guidelines for this.

Betty Crocker are expensive but save your receipts for the tax credit. I buy 5 or 6 at a time so that I have them on hand and my guests can't tell that there is anything different about the cake.

I hope it works out.

You should have someone from the U.S. Ship a few boxers.

I wrote a letter and signed an online petition, and my family lives close to the border (I live 4 hours away) so it is attainable, and I'm sure there's a place to order it online..but I would like the convenience of being able to pick it up at the store, as I'm sure many others would like. Not to mention the expense of shipping/handling can be high, and the cost of gas to drive half an hour (from parent's house) to Fred Meyers or wherever (plus border wait times..) isn't really ideal!

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
