Carrot Cake & Banana Bread Mix

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So, I ran to Sam's Club to pick up some more bottled water and a few other basics. My boyfriend was with me and wanted to take a look around. So we went down the aisles I normally avoid (like baking/cereal/etc). Anyway, in the baking aisle he asks me why I had spent $7 on the banana bread mix at the food co-op that morning. I was confused why he was asking, obviously I wanted to try it. Anyway, after giving him a funny look, I realize he had picked up a box and set it in my cart. I was really confused, Sam's Club has never had gluten free baking items (yes, they are great at labeling their meats and other frozen foods). Anyway, the mix I had spent $7 dollars on was sitting in my cart.

I looked at the box. It was the same brand Simply Organic but instead of just having the banana bread, it also had their carrot cake mix. I looked over at the price, and was shocked. I honestly couldn't speak. It was $1.81 for the box. Two gluten free mixes for under $2. I was utterly speechless. And now I'm left wondering what other gluten free goodies I've missed at Sam's.

I haven't made either yet. I'll probably get to it next weekend. I still have a homemade cherry pie and brownies to eat up. And living alone, with only random visits from the boyfriend, this can take awhile. On top of that, he brought me four things of muffins from a little gluten-free bakery by his house.

So, to my quick questions, has anyone tried these mixes? Are they any good? For $1.81 for two, I'm not expecting amazing but who knows. Also, have you seen other gluten free goodies at Sam's? I know I buy a seasoned frozen Salmon there that is amazing and that most of their sausages and roasts are gluten free, but what else?

I guess most of all, I wanted to share this great find, so that others might have a chance to find them. I know Sam's is my holiday stop because their hams are labeled gluten free and even have a gluten free honey glaze with them.

I was also really shocked when I happened to find these mixes packaged together at Sam's Club. I've made both of them and they are really good texture and flavor wise..I just bought another box when I was there last time...Just think how great, you could actually use two of the carrot cakes and make a wonderful cream cheese frosted birthday cake...WOW, gluten-free is really getting better. I am so happy that I found these.

:( Sad, today I went back and the mixes are gone. And at the local grocery, the are $4.50 each. So sad. Made the banana bread but used strawberry-banana baby food, instead of mashed bananas. So good!

I bought one on Friday and although it was priced at $2.88, they rang it up at $1.81. If I hadn't been in a hurry, I would have gone back in and gotten a few more. I hope the mark-down doesn't mean they're discontinuing them so soon. At this price, you could have fun playing around with them!

Make sure to call/email/ask when they will have more in stock. If they know people are looking for it they will try to order more for you.
