UPDATE (8/10/09): Due to overwhelming demand, General Mills has run out of the free coupons (mentioned below), but you can still call to get more information on the company's gluten-free products.
It’s been a couple of months since the debut of Betty Crocker’s four gluten-free dessert mixes: yellow cake, devil’s food cake, chocolate chip cookie and brownie. Wegmans was the first local supermarket to stock them, and other stores have since started carrying the products. (They’re also available at Amazon.com.) All of the mixes are made in a gluten-free processing facility.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to try them, now’s your opportunity to do so; if you have, you can stock up on more! As part of Gluten Free Philly’s latest giveaway, one lucky reader will win a Betty Crocker “Sweet Treats” prize pack. The prize pack includes all four dessert mixes, two “free product” coupons for any of the varieties, and a “Betty Crocker Gluten Free” grocery tote bag, magnetic grocery list and pen, all courtesy of MyBlogSpark.In addition to entering the giveaway, you can call General Mills at 1-800-446-1898 to request a coupon for one free mix of your choice and to receive information about the company’s growing number of gluten-free products.
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment to this post letting me know which one of the mixes you like the best (if you’ve tried them) or which one you’d like to try the most (if you haven’t had tasted them yet).
Some brief guidelines: (1) please do not enter unless you or a family member is on a gluten-free diet; (2) one comment per person; (3) U.S. residents only.
Most important is to make sure your comment provides a way for me to contact you. If your comment does not link back to an email address, blog or website through which I can get in touch with you, post your email address in the comment in the following format: "name[at]domain[dot]suffix."
The giveaway runs now through Sunday, August 16 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. I’ll randomly select one winner the next day and will contact them by email. If I don’t hear back from the person with his or her mailing address by the following Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern, I’ll select another name.
