Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Mixes Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

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.

Betty Crocker yellow cake 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.

Betty Crocker giveaway 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.

The best part about this giveaway, is that everyone can be a winner. Simply call 1-800-446-1898 to request a coupon for one free gluten free mix! Then, if you’re like me, you just have to wait until they show up at your local store.

This giveaway is now closed, but you can still call the number for the coupon.

I am dying to try the chocolate chip cookies. My son, who is not gluten free, said he hopes I'll try them for him soon!
For me, it's always been about the brownies...or the chocolate cake...or the brownies... Can my favorite be both?!?

Mmmmm. Hoping to win & thanks for the phone #, too!
My little guy is dying to try the chocolate cake mix, we haven't had any luck in finding it yet. He sure is a chocoholic just like his mommy ;0)
I ABSOLUTELY can't wait to try the yellow cake... it's been a long time... and for my celiac son, never.
Cookies! It's been so long since I had a cookie. Yum! Thanks for the chance to win!
I haven't had a good chocolate chip cookie in SO LONG! I can't even imagine how nice that would be! I'll have to check out these mixes for sure!
Chocolate chip cookies for sure!! Can't imagine making cookies from a mainstream bag again.
For me, probably the chocolate cake! My 2 year old's birthday is coming up and having a pre-made mix would be wonderful! I've been looking in a few different stores locally and we just don't have them yet *sniff* LOL!

Thanks for the phone number too! yay!
Oh! That's so exciting! The thing I miss the most is mix cake.
Thanks for the phone number for the coupon for a free mix. The Betty Crocker people were very nice. I said cookies last night...this morning chocolate cake is calling my name.
That's it. I'm joining blogspark.

And thanks for the number- that's awesome!
I'd LOVE to try the chocolate chip cookies. My husband has been eating plenty of the gluteny variety in front of me lately and I've got the craving. I'm finally starting to see these mixes at my stores now!! Very exciting. Fred Meyer and Albertsons are carrying them.

This is so cool and I would choose the cookies!

I signed up at myblogspark.com also!

Thank you,


P.S. calling for the coupon now...yum!

I would have to try the brownies 1st. My son has never had a brownie (because of the gluten). I've never bought a GF brownie mix because they just don't look appealing. So, I would LOVE for him to be able to eat brownies!!! Thank you, Mrs. Betty Crocker!
I'm a chocoholic and can't decide between the brownies or chocolate cake-maybe both:) Thanks for the #!
Ooh, I would like to try the brownie mix. After I had my babies, I have been craving chocolate.

Have actually tried the brownies - they are yummy but VERY high in sugar. :(

My daughter loves yellow cake and I love brownies so it's a toss up. Thank you! hiryzor@cox.net
I would like to try the brownies. laura_evarts@yahoo.com

I appreciate you for posting the phone number!
Brownies are always a treat at home and if they are Gluten Free that is an additional plus! Thanks
The yellow cake is the one I would like to try first. My daughter's birthday is coming up soon and she wants a yellow cake. Thank you,

Can't wait to try the yellow cake mix and the cookie mix. So far have not found it at a nearby store.
I can't wait to try the brownies! I miss the gluten containing ones so badly! Servangirl2000@gmail.com
I would love to have some cake! I really miss being able to have dessert! terahbowling@yahoo.com
It's been years since I've had devil's food cake. If I win, I would try that one first. I have yet to see it in markets here in Hawaii.
Brownies, hands down! I love to try all the different GF brands. When I bake a batch I freeze them in to go portions, so I am not stuck without something sweet when I'm out an about.
I would like to try the brownie mix. I am so happy that products like this are being made available!

I'd like to try the chocolate chip cookies. My DD8 is beginning on the gluten free diet and we need a substitute for Grandma's delicious cookies!
I'm still so intrested in that yellow cake mix. I've heard rumors its dense, but still, yellow cake from scratch? a pain. yellow cake from a mix - I'm so there!!

(PS I just realized your absent from the links on my blog. So so sorry. It's been corrected!! )
Really wanting to try the chocolate chip cookie mix as I've now tried half a dozen recipes.... and the compost pile in the back yard is filling up. (Seriously. Cookies should NOT slice the top of you tongue when you bite into them!)

Here's hoping.

I'd love to get the brownie mix! Thanks for the review on the yellow cake mix - I've been wondering how moist it is. I'm sorry to hear the price is very high. Unless it is included in a lot of mainstream stores, I'm afraid for their sales. Yet, I agree with you that it is a great thing for those wanting to entertain GF guests.
I would love to try the chocolate chip cookies! :) Thanks for all the info! :)
I can not wait to get my hands on Betty Crocker's chocolate cake mix. I have found good substitutes for brownies and cringe everytime I have to spend $6+ on Pamela's chocolate cake mix (although it is delicious). cmckeeby(at)gmail(dot)com
I thought they were going to be available in stores in June, so I've been looking every time I go shopping, but no luck finding them yet! When I do find them, I'm interested in trying the brownies first! Thanks for the giveaway, and the tip on the free coupon!
I really want to try the devil's food cake mix for my birthday coming up! I've been craving chocolate cake for awhile now.

I would love to try the yellow cake mix. I really am looking for something I can buy that will be less bready and more cake like than other yellow cake mixes I have bought that were GF.

I am eager to try the Devil's Food Cake mix. It's the only one I can't find in any of my local markets!

Brownies. Definitely the brownies. I was split for quite a while on the cake or the brownies, but I've always been more of a brownie person... and am still looking for a good recipe or mix to use...
I would love to try the yellow cake, but know that my family would probably prefer the chocolate. My husband is allergic to wheat, and he has passed this on to all four of our children.
My email is claudia_merkel@sbcglobal.net
I would really love to try the chocolate cake. Sounds wonderful to me.
