I recently received complimentary samples of Betty Crocker’s new gluten free mixes, courtesy of My Blog Spark. If you haven’t joined yet, it’s easy and free. Here is a quote from their site.
“MyBlogSpark™ is a fun and exciting group of bloggers that have access to review new products and services and participate in exciting giveaways, surveys and events.”
Not only did they send me a prize pack, but they are also offering a prize pack to one of you! You can see the details below. I have only had time to try one of the mixes. I will review that one here and post reviews of the others later. I wanted to go ahead and get the giveaway started.
For some reason, I wasn’t in the mood for chocolate the other day, so I started with the yellow cake mix. I had heard but forgotten that the cake mixes only make a one layer cake, so I opted to make cupcakes instead. (It makes 12, not all are shown in the picture.) I modified the directions very slightly by using lemon extract instead of vanilla. I then topped the cupcakes with Betty Crocker lemon frosting. The verdict? They were great! The whole family liked them, and they were good the second day also.
The Betty Crocker yellow cake mix is worth buying. Whether it is worth the price is another question. I knew the mixes would cost more than a regular mix, but when you consider that it only makes one layer (half as much as other mixes) the cost is even higher.
For that reason, it is something I will only buy occasionally. I will, however, recommend it to others. I think these mixes will be particularly helpful to people who want to entertain gluten free guests. Also, they will probably be greatly appreciated by moms who have gluten free kids and need to provide alternatives for birthday parties and school activities.
Now on to the giveaway. One winner will receive all four mixes as well as a tote bag, shopping list and pen. The giveaway is open to US residents only. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me which mix you can’t wait to try first, the yellow cake, devil’s food cake, brownies, or chocolate chip cookies. Please leave an email address unless you are sure your link will lead me to a web page where I can contact you. The giveaway will end Wednesday, July 22, at 11:00 p.m. eastern time. I will randomly choose one winner and contact them on Thursday. The winner will have 24 hours to respond before I choose a new winner.
