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.

    • The Op hasn't been on the forum for over a year.  Not sure if she has notifications turned on.   you might want to re- think putting your real name on a forum that will Be seen by thousands of people & a dozen trolls.
    • MariaofColumbia,   I came across this thread when a two different friends had posted on facebook.  I read it and felt like you were talking to me.  I've had issues for 7 years now.  My candida cannot get under control.  I went and checked my vitamin B levels and they are high.  I've been on methyl folate for several months now, but only one pill a day.  I do have one MTHFR gene mutation.  I've tried SO MANY candida diets/options and the minute I stray it is back out of whack...or it never really gets rid of it.  I pick up viruses fairly frequently because my immune system is so taxed.  I'm so very tired of dealing with this!!!  I'm wondering if you could go into more detail as to what exactly you started taking/how often/what foods you still avoided (sugar/vinegar/mushrooms/peanut butter/etc), and where your healthy B levels are at now?  You can find me on facebook as Jessica Hecker Andersen and we could always private message as well.  I really wish I could just call you!  lol.  Please, any further information would be very much appreciated.  Thank you!
    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
    • Good to know I would like to get more nuts and seeds  but find many retailers by me have the shared equipment claim on package so I've held off other than some almonds. My daughter and I are battling over all the fresh pumpkin seeds I've been roasting so I should see if nuts .com sells some a 5 lb bag would fix the ordeal likely a need for magnesium -
