Product Review: Gluten Free Brownies by Betty Crocker

I know what you’re thinking… “Does Betty Crocker really need a food review?”  Well, no.  And NO… they did not provide me with this box to review.  I’m doing this out of the goodness of my own sweet little heart.  Truthfully, I wanted to taste this variety of brownie to see if it can stand up to my personal favorite brownie maker (from a box.)

So did it?  Well, no.  It is not as decadent, or chocolatey and it doesn’t carry that deep rich flavor I was seeking. It was not nearly as moist as my favorite brownie maker either.  Also, it had a bit of a grainy texture to it.  But the ingredients are set for Gluten Free needs, so why am I complaining?  Because I am a chocolate brownie snob.

Did I at least enjoy it?  Is chocolate going to get passed by in this kitchen?  Silly question… While it’s not Ghirardelli  my favorite brownie maker, it is no cardboard plain mess either.  I personally think Betty Crocker did a good job with this product, and hope to see some flavors that they add to it. (hint)

For my Gluten Free friends (and students), I would recommend adding something to these brownies.  Say… hot sauce!  Seriously, a shake or two of Tabasco can really make these brownies pop!

And there you have it.  Truth… in a box!

Disclaimer:  These opinions are mine. I purchased the box of Betty Crocker, Gluten Free brownies.  It’s okay if you disagree. 🙂

  1. It’s nice to know that Betty decided to get on the gluten free bandwagon. That means manufacturers are listening to their consumers’ needs! Thanks for the review!
