In Case Anyone Was Wondering About..

Recommended Posts

I baked the yellow cake yesterday---it was GOOD! Way better than the Gluten Free Pantry's yellow cake mix. My husband (not gluten-free) said he could tell a difference between the Betty Crocker gluten-free and regular cake, but he allowed that it was much better than the GFP mix.

All I can say is, since I hadn't had cake in nearly a year, it was wonderful! Tasted just like regular cake to me. We'll be trying the chocolate next.

Found them at our Krogers a bit over a week ago for $4.49 a box. They had all but the chocolate. Not sure why. So far have made the brownies and yellow cake. Brownies taste like the kind you get from a box and were good. I usually make mine from scratch using the Joy of Cooking recipe and a homemade version of Bob's red mill gluten-free flour mix and it turns out really well. Dh preferred the ones I usually make, but that's a no brainer because they're really rich and take a while to make!

The yellow cake they all seemed to like just fine, but it made me a bit nauseated. I don't do well w/ anything made mostly from white rice so I think that's just me. For the price of one layer I think I'll just make mine from scratch, but it will be nice to have a backup if I'm in a hurry or something. Not sure it I'll ever try the chocolate since our Krogers carries Pamelas chocolate cake mix for about the same price and it makes 2 layers and is really good.

The yellow cake did sit for a few days and stayed moist so that is a huge plus since most yellow cakes seem to dry out fairly quickly. I will say it was nice to be able to buy a mix in a regular part of the store...

Just found the gluten-free cake mix, chocolate and white, brownie mix and cookies at my local Rouse's grocery store. Price $3.69. I am wondering if I can use it to make a honey bun cake? Can it be used like a regular cake mix to make just about anything?

Made the choc chip cookie mix yesterday... quite good. Nice texture, light -- I made the larger cookies, 1T of mix, and got 14. Should be a crowd and kid pleaser.

Will try their cake when it's in the store, not there yet.

Hi -

I emailed Betty Crocker /General Mills and they told me that they have a product locator on their web site generalmills.com . You can search by product and then by store and it will let you know if they have them yet. Or you can call the customer service number 1-800-249-0562 and they will do the search for you.

Nothing here in the twin cities yet - keep hoping it will be soon!

I got the brownie and cookie mix last night at the Kelso Safeway. Cooked up the cookies as soon as I got home. I am not a chocolate person but these are amazing cookies. These are by far the best cookies I have ever had since going gluten free. Cant wait to try the white or yellow cake what ever it is.

I haven't seen them in any local stores yet, but I just signed up on the Retailer-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named website to be notified when they become available there. Usually, I buy one locally first before buying a case online, but the reviews on these are so good I think I'm willing to just buy a case if their price is reasonable.


gluten-free since mid-2007.
Symptoms: "IBS," chronic fatigue, chronic pain. 

Celiac is a family affair for us; my mom, sister, and one of my sons are gluten free. At least it makes holiday gatherings easier.

I've gotten all 4 varieties of the mixes at the A&P in NY (Westchester). So far I've made the brownies and the yellow cake mix (made cupcakes with it). Both are delicious. I especially liked the yellow cake mix.

I seem to be in the minority here, but I don't think the price is bad at all. Considering what we normally pay for specialty gluten free products the price of this doesn't phase me at all. I realize it makes a smaller amount than some of the other mixes, but maybe it's not such a bad thing that I'll only make and eat 12 cupcakes as opposed to 24 ;)

I totally agree with you. I will gladly pay $4 for gluten free cookies/brownies/cake that is easy to make, sold in regular stores, and tastes delicious.

I just head about the betty crocker mixes and am super excited. I have one question though, does anyone know about the cross contamination issue with these mixes?

Are they made in a separate facility?

To be honest I am not impressed. I don't know if it is because I have to use a butter sub. or what but I have had better cookies for a mix and better cake from a mix too. I have a box of the brownies to try so we will see.

They are produced in a gluten-free facility--that is printed on the boxes :)

I finally found them at Kroger outside of Houston. I got the yellow cake mix, cookies, and brownies. I made the brownies yesterday using 1/3 cup oil instead of butter, and I added a handful of chopped walnuts. They are as good as I remember Betty Crocker brownies to be--fudgy and moist with no dry edges. I was very impressed :D

They were $4.19 each.
