I wanted to let everyone know about an amazing chocolate cke mix I had. It's by Namaste.

My sister's, boyfriends mother every so often makes a chocolate cherry cake with fresh whipped cream that is awesome. Well she decided to make a gluten free one so that I could have a dessert for Chanukah. She used the Namaste Chocolate Cake Mix and it is the best I've had. I thought the Gluten Free Pantry one was excellent but this blows it away. It is so light and moist I kept looking at the package to confirm for myself it was gluten-free. It tasted so good and so much like normal cake I couldn't believe it.

I went on the website just now to find where I can get it. Here is the link if you are interested.

Thanks for the tip! I just ordered their choc. cake mix, van. cake mix, pizza crust mix, and waffle/pancake mix. I was on the verge of not trying any more gluten-free baked goods as I have not found any that I like (I know - I am VERY picky). I had decided I would rather go without. But, the other day I tried a frozen pizza crust that I ordered from gluten-free Pantry and it was OK. I will let you know what I think of the Namaste mixes.

Thanks again!!!!

I had a hard time finding things I liked at first. I wasted TOO much money trying to find "replacements". I think after a while my tastebuds adjusted and everything wasn't YUCKEY anymore. I have found a few things that I rely on for a regular basis. I like the gluten free pantry's cake and cookie mix, also their pie crust mix and their chocolate truffle brownies. I like the namaste blondies as a special treat (their mixes are a bit expensive). I get blue diamond almond thins for crackers. I also like to get a package of nana's lemon cookies on occasion. I have gotten doughnuts twice from Kinnikinnick . Other than that, I don't really get many specialty foods. I just eat foods that are naturally gluten free or I make things from scratch at home.

Jessica,

It is so funny that you mentioned Blue Diamond Almond Thins - my brother who lives in Annapolis brought a box to me at Christmas. There aren't very many options for me locally since I live in such a rural area. I loved them! They are really good with Kraft Old English Cheese Spread!

My brother is so sweet - he brought a bag of gluten-free goodies for me from Whole Foods!

I am so glad to hear you like the cake mix. I tried their brownies and hated them. I prefer gluten-free pantry. So, never purchased anything else. I will try the cake mix next time I am in the mood!

Thanks,

Hez
