Live Gluten Freely Giveaway

Sunday I shared with you my experience at General Mills headquarters in Minneapolis.  Today I have a giveaway from General Mills through My Blog Spark.  General Mills now makes over 300 products that are labeled gluten free.  These products are made in a dedicated environment and are tested to less than 20 parts per million for gluten.  I prefer to consume products that are tested to 10 ppm and are part of an outside certification program such as GFCO.  Therefore, I only use products such as those in this giveaway occasionally.  Please remember that you are responsible for determining what products are safe for you or your loved one to eat.

Having said that, this is a great giveaway!  One winner will receive one of each of the products shown in the picture below.

Genera Mills Gluten Free Products
I was provided with all of the above products from General Mills through My Blog Spark.  If you’re interested in knowing more about these products, here are a few of my previous reviews:

I think Lara Bars are a great on-the-go snack filled with nuts and fruit.  Potato Buds are a terrific substitute for bread crumbs in recipes such as meatloaf, meatballs, and salmon/crab cakes.

If you would like to win this giveaway, leave a comment on this post. Email readers need to click over to my blog where you can leave an anonymous comment. Please make sure I have a way to contact you.  Up to four entries per person. You must leave separate comments for each entry.

The giveaway will end on Sunday, November 14th at 11:00 p.m. eastern time.  I will select the winner randomly using  Once contacted, the winner needs to respond within 24 hours.   After I have heard back from the winner, I  will announce the winner on my Facebook page.

    I've heard a lot of good things about Lara Bars – would love to try that one out!

  2. Sherron says

    I would like to try out the yellow cake mix. It is so nice to have a quick option for when I am traveling or visiting family and want to pick up something at the store!

  3. lisaplus5 says

    we tried the brownies and loved them. i would like to try the baking mix for a few of our favorite recipes!

  6. Jessica says

    I'd be excited about trying the Potato Buds first. I've never used them and if they can be used as a bread crumb sub, I could easily make meatballs without having to make bread as well! That would be amazing! (I haven't gotten to a point that GF bread making is something I enjoy doing yet.)

    I've actually tried all of them. The yellow cake mix makes an awesome carrot cake. I got the recipe from the website. I made the brownies once but they ended up overcooked (my oven's reliability leaves a lot to be desired). Same thing happened when I made a coffee bread with the bisquick. Hmmm, maybe what I need is for someone to have an oven give-away…….

  16. katamasmom says

    Having just tried the Bisquick this weekend, and loved it for pancakes. I would say the next thing I want to try is the Potato Buds – love your idea for use in Meatloaf!

  17. Janis says

    I subscribe to your email and would love to be able to try these products for free!

    I love everything in that picture. My most creative way of using the GF Bisquick was in my GF Corndog batter, along with Bob's Red Mill GF Cornbread Mix. Utterly Perfect!!!

    My mom is allergic to gluten, this would be a great goodie bag for her!

  47. Judy says

    As i am trying to adjust to living gluten free due to health issues with gluten this would be a great way to get started on that path. I also have a friend who has been told she needs to live gluten free as well so I could share with her. I love your facebook page and i have shared you facebook page and blog with many others.

  48. mrschelles says

    I'm incorporating more gluten-free foods into my diet because of some health issues, so I'm just now learning about gluten-free options. I had no idea General Mills made this many gluten-free products.

  49. mrschelles says

    I'm anxious to try the gf Bisquick. I haven't noticed it in the grocery store in my area, so I will definitely have to keep my eye out for it.

  51. Jill says

    I haven't tried the GF Bisquick yet but would like to – haven't seen it in the local grocery yet. I LOVE Lara Bars – eat one almost every day before my workout. Haven't tried Potato Buds yet either. Glad that the GF snacks are available for the kiddos! Thx to you and General Mills for the giveaway!!!

  52. Jill says

    Oh – I already subscribe to your blog thru RSS feeds – have done so since being diagnosed Celiac back in June '09!

    I love the plain chex cereal, but sometimes I want something with a little more flavor. i would love to try the honey nut chex.

    Such a fun giveaway!! I'd love to try everything but the Honey Nut Chex first. I've never seen them before!

  56. Morah Devorie says

    I bake lots from scratch but always keep the cake mixes around for my emergency moments! I've heard that bisquik is an easy substitute for the flour in many recipes and am eager to try it out!

  57. kathy w says

    i would love to try the bisquik. I am still getting info on gluten free and this would be a great start.

  58. Stephanie says

    I would definitely be using the bisquik. Really want to give it a try in a dumplings recipe!

    P.S. I just found boxes of the PB larabars at Target! Was so excited!

  59. Becca says

    I really, really want to use the Bisquick mix. It is not here where I live yet.

  62. Nicol Thompson says

    Larabars are awesome! I would love to win one. They are so convienent to throw in my car or purse. I wish I had known of them when I was pregnant!

  63. Sue H says

    I would love to try the cake mixes. It would make it so easy when we have a pot luck at Church or with friends. I always love to try new products, and I think there was icing. In the give away also and would love that as well. I used ro enjoy baking but it is a chore now.

  64. Sue H. says

    I follow you on Facebook and really enjoy your daily posts for ideas for dinner! Great site!

    I have Twittwr on my computer, but I follow only Facebook due to time. I can find friends and any Gluten Free site I could want.

  66. maryjanesharp says

    I am so excited about the Gluten free Bisquick. I live in a fairly rural area so I'll probably have to order it on the internet in order to get it but, it will be worth it.

  72. Eagles17 says

    I am so excited to try the brownie mix – I'm such a chocoholic, and before being diagnosed with my gluten sensitivity, brownies were my go-to dessert. Mint chocolate chip, peanut butter, cheesecake swirl, they're so versatile!

  73. Eagles17 says

    I also follow you on Twitter as @cupcakes_mmm.

    I'm so glad you had such an incredible experience at General Mills, that's so exciting! Thank you so much for offering this giveaway! Have a wonderful day! =)
