General Mills Giveaway!

Monday, January 31st, 2011 | click here to comment

General Mills has been all over the gluten-free web vine lately for their new Chex commercial which touts gluten freedom and their assortment of gluten-free Chex cereals, which I love. I'm still a little bitter about their retirement of Strawberry Chex, but I'm willing to overlook it, since they have wholeheartedly embraced all that is gluten-free.

One of the major General Mills gluten-free initiatives is Live Gluten Freely, a gluten-free community dedicated entirely to gluten-free living with great content including recipes and a complete list of gluten-free products from General Mills. The folks at Live Gluten Freely/MyBlogSpark graciously sent me a sample box filled with gluten-free goodies that had me smiling ear to ear. I received another box of gluten-free Bisquick, which I was super excited about, since I had been wanting to make biscuits again after making them a couple of months ago. I made an awesome breakfast sandwich with ham, a fried egg, some cheddar cheese and a smear of jam (trust me it's good) served on a warm biscuit - delish!

yummy biscuit sandwich

There were some interesting products included in the box too, like Potato Buds, which I will admit, I have no interest in making, but I suppose if the twin suns come and our planet goes to chaos, I can always fall back on my gluten-free Potato Buds.  :) Imitation mashed potatoes aside, I have to give General Mills major brownie points for really embracing the gluten-free lifestyle and trying to bring awareness to Celiac disease. I don't know of any other mass market brand out there doing that, and it's very welcome in my book.

In the spirit of sharing, the generous people at Live Gluten Freely have given me the opportunity to give a sample box of General Mills products away. Trust me, you don't want to miss out on this!  There is something for everyone in the box, from kids to adults. As an added bonus there is a handy Betty Crocker Serving Spoon included. I have no idea how they managed to pack all of this food into one box, but here's the list of items you'll win*: (1) box of Honey-Nut Chex (1) box of Potato Buds (1) variety pack of Fruit Roll Ups (1) box of Betty Crocker Brownie Mix (1) box of Betty Crocker Cake Mix (1) box of Bisquick Mix (1) container of Betty Crocker Frosting (1) Larabar (1) Betty Crocker Red Serving Spoon *Actual flavors may differ in your prize.
