Betty Crocker “Sweet Moments” Gluten Free Mixes Review & Giveaway!!


You know when Betty does it, that it will be top quality and available everywhere. Betty Crocker is a standard in America. You have no idea how excited I was to hear that Betty Crocker was coming out with a gluten free line!!

Not only does it mean quality, tasty, convenient mixes, but it means that gluten free living is being recognized in a huge way! I mean if Betty Crocker offers gluten free mixes it means that we've arrived!

My Mom started on a gluten free journey over 10 years ago when my brother Kirby was diagnosed with Celiac. Ten years ago the gluten free foods offered were not much better than eating straw & cardboard. My Mom pioneered tasteful gluten free foods for her family and has perfected so many GF foods. Now GF foods are good foods and do not sacrifice taste for health.

Taken from the box - Why go gluten free? Not long ago, two of our co-workers found themselves in the gluten free world. Linc was diagnosed with Celiac disease, and Colleen's family switched to the diet for their son's well-being.

Their experiences opened our eyes to the challenges families face following the diet. It's hard to be different, especially when it affects sweet moments with friends and family. No one wants to miss sharing birthday cake or see their child have to turn down a homemade cookie.

We live gluten free to support our son Julien. Juju was a very unhappy little boy before the diet. He was constantly being talked to or made to sit, he cried all the time, threw fits and to shop with him was a nightmare. It was exhausting for me and miserable for him. I learned a lot about old beliefs I had about children. I used to judge a kid having a fit in a store - thinking that parent should control their kid or that kid needs spanked. I thought of bad behavior as a discipline problem. I now realize that it's not my place to judge what I don't know.

Julien is still a kid, but the diet has taken away the extremes. We have a happy kid!! I'm so thankful for that. I would recommend the diet to anyone.

As for the mixes, they are yummy the brownies are almost better than a regular brownie mix and the chocolate chip cookies are too! I have only tried the white cake mix and we had some of the best cupcakes I've ever made! My brother tried one and said "they would have been cheaper if you would have made them yourself" - that rocked!! He thought they were store bought!! He couldn't believe it when I told him they were gluten free!It didn't stop him from stuffing his face with another.

This review is close to my heart - it was so nice I want to thank General Mills for the opportunity to try the Betty Crocker gluten free line. If I could make any suggestion, it would be that they add a general purpose baking mix and a plain cookie mix that you ccould choose to make peanut butter, snickerdoodle etc.

WIN IT!!!

One lucky winner will recive a fun prize pack which includes the four mixes listed above, a eco tote, a magnetic shopping list, a pen and some coupons. It's a great prize pack!

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like they carry the GF items anywhere close to me right now. My grocery store isn't even LISTED! Yikes! I am sure we will see them in the future, though.

Oh, my gosh! I can find them everywhere!!! I'm so happy and excited! (can you tell?) Meijers, Marsh, Lances New Market... Happy, happy!

And yes, I would suggest they delve into a general cookie mix that could be adjusted to make snickers doodles, sugar cookies, ginger, peanut butter, MMMMM
