GFCF Mommy is the lucky recipient of a Betty Crocker "Sweet Moments" Prize Pack, courtesy of MyBlogSpark who has asked me to taste-test these mixes and review them for you. They are also sending me another prize pack to give away to a lucky reader, so stay-tuned for more details!
I was really touched by the reason Betty Crocker says they have developed these products, from the "Our Story" section of their website:
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 her 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 a birthday cake or see their child have to turn down a homemade cookie from a buddy after a game.We hope we can help by bringing you these mixes for gluten free desserts that look and taste like the treats you’ve been longing to share. Finally, Betty Crocker® Gluten Free!
-The Betty Crocker Baking Team
Reading this, I had to wonder if "Colleen's" son might be on the spectrum. I might just ask the good folks at Betty Crocker about that.
These mixes are due in your local grocery any time now, so be on the lookout. Apparently they are also developing GF frosting too. You can read a little about Betty Crocker's new products here and they have a dedicated facility too! Since I am home recuperating from surgery, an easy-to-make dessert sounds great right now. (Let's just hope they are casein-free too!)
P.S. Just got an email from Amazon, looks the mixes are already available at Amazon.com's grocery.
