Snacks! A Giveaway!


Boy, did these bring back memories.


I was the kid growing up that was sent to school with carrot sticks and whole wheat sandwiches. I would watch with envy as my pals would eat their packaged desserts. But! On occasion, I'd get a special treat: Gushers were a favorite. I'd eat them very slowly, making sure they would, well, gush into my mouth as I bit them. The cool kids at school would have their Fruit by the Foot, but they'd eat them in a hurry, unaware that what they were eating was, in my book, a treat to be savored.

Ahhh. Memories.

Betty Crocker, who, if you haven't heard recently came out with gluten-free baking mixes (try the brownies: they are the best brownie mix I've ever had) contacted me about a giveaway. Because I think this could be a lot of fun for a family, or anyone really, I'm partaking (and I really like supporting companies who make life easier for gluten-free folks). I'll randomly pick someone by 5pm on Friday, December 18th who comments on this blog post and Betty Crocker will send the gift pack your way (it includes a 2 packages of Betty Crocker fruit snacks, pick-up sticks, a yo yo and a frisbee).

Oh, and BTW: all treats in the package are gluten-free and dairy-free. And they're made with real fruit: a huuuuge plus.

Betty Crocker will be getting my business considering they are making it more easier for us GF eaters. I have had their brownies too and was in heaven! :) I'm entering into this giveaway!

I've only tried the yellow GF cake mix so far and it was quite tastey.

I too was the kid with the cold lunch and un-cool stuff in it. We did carob instead of chocolate. In addition, I never knew people put gasp "sugar" on their cereal until i was 10 or so.

I have yet to try any of the Betty Crocker GF mixes but I am looking forward to them! Thanks for the chance to win, if I win I'll get to feel like a kid again.

I like the B Crocker mixes too, and the prices are no different than their "regular" mixes. GFers everywhere are waiting for the day when GF foodstuffs aren't automatically 40% to 120% more pricey that the "regular" stuff.

Please don't enter me in the raffle, I eat too much candy as it is. Besides there are two of us with the same name.
What a coincidence.

Hmm, I have been very curious about these mixes and it would be awesome to try them!

What I really love about the Betty Crocker GF mixes is that the packaging is very similar to the original mixes. SO, my friends and family members that are very freaked out by the idea of baking GF things but want to be able to feed sweets to their guests and...um...me, feel more comfortable with these, because they're basically what they're already used to making! AMEN for making it easier on those who want to help us "special" folks out!

We tried the choc. chip cookies and they were GREAT! We used flax seed instead of egg, and Earth Balance margarine. I will be trying all the other flavors :)
