Have you checked thier website?  Maybe write to the company and see if they sell them in the UK.

See if there is a gluten free store near you. That's how I first found them when I was living up north. You can also write to the grocery stores near you or that you use and request that they start carrying the Betty Crocker gluten free brand. If you present it to them with the fact that few/ no other suppliers in the area have yet there is a demand for it and would thus increase their sales they are more likely to start carrying it. Best of luck!

I've tried the Betty Crocker mixes, and wasn't impressed. I don't know about anyone else, but in my area they are more expensive than the all-natural gluten-free cake mixes I buy at health food stores. I can't understand why they're so costly.

I always find that speaking to the store manager helps. If you ask for what you need they are usually happy to help and will order what customers want.  Good luck!

I tried it once (I was in a pinch) and was unimpressed, too.  Rest assured - you are not missing out!  :)

If you are very sensitive to gluten be careful with those mixes. I had the "gluten free" brownies from Betty Crocker and got a typical gluten reaction from it. There are several negative reviews on Amazon.com of people who had gluten reactions to Betty Crocker "gluten free" mixes.

My family -- five with celiac disease eat Betty Crocker brownies often and have never had a problem...I however can not eat them due to other intolerances...perhaps you have other yet to be discovered problem foods?

Just weighing in on this-- I've used these mixes many times and have never had a problem. That is not to say you couldn't.

I also wonder if there might be another intolerance at play here.

These cake mixes are handy when you're on the road or staying at someone's house.  They can be found in most grocery stores now on the West Coast.    I always "doctor" them up for best results.  I've not had a reaction to them.

Not for Celiac!  Made the BC gluten-free Brownie Mix last night and got sick. Delicious though. I wouldn't trust any of their mixes now.

they are great!  We use this mix and many Celiacs that I know do, too.  

 

I have no idea how long you have been diagnosed with Celiac.  If it hasn't been long, you may not be healed enough to tolerate the fat, sugar, etc.  or maybe there is another ingredient that bothered you?  Or something else you ate?  It's very hard to know for sure.

I don't have any problems with them, but the brownie mix is the only one I really like.  If you can find Namaste, it's worth trying and pretty darn good.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people ... View the full article
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
