The day has finally arrived...
If you have not checked your local grocery stores yet, be sure to do so next time you are there. These babies are a hot new gluten free item. We were fortunate enough to get a sneak peak back at the beginning of May 2009, courtesy of Betty Crocker & Price Chopper (a.k.a my Uncle Gary & Aunt Becky). My aunt brought them on a visit to Texas and we tried them out. (They also make brownies, but I will give you more details on that later).
My ratings are as follows; (0 - 5, 0 being worst & 5 being best)
- Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies: Rating - 5. EXCELLENT!!! These taste like the real deal. There is no grittiness when you bite into them, and they are absolutely wonderful! The real test here lied in the hands of my father-in-law who hates all things free of gluten;-) He too thought they were fabulous. So, I very highly recommend this cookie mix. Try it today! If your local grocer does not carry it, recommend that they begin.
- Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownies: Rating - 4.5. Wonderful! These taste very similar to the Gluten Free Pantry Brownies (in my opinion) Yum-Yum chocolaty. These were great too.
- Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake (Chocolate & Yellow Cakes): Rating - 3. These cakes (yes, I am rating them together) both remind me of some of the other cake mixes; whole foods brand, gluten free pantry, etc. Of course, if you read any other posts, you know that Namaste has stolen my heart when it comes to cake mixes (which is why I rate this a 3) I have yet to find a GF cake mix as phenomenal as Namaste. But, if you cannot find Namaste cake mix, this is a good choice. I better stop since I am sounding a lot like a spokesperson here.
I hope very much that this has been helpful & good luck on your gluten free adventure!
