General Mills Live Gluten Freely Product Box Review

share on:

Note: General Mills decided to do away with Live Gluten Freely’s product boxes and website store. 

Diamonds are so overrated! Why not give the gift of (full-sized) delicious gluten free products from General Mills? The wondrous folks at General Mills recently sent me a Live Gluten Freely product box to “taste test”.  These boxes are perfect for saying thank you, congratulations or I’m thinking of you!

I must give HUGE props to General Mills for addressing the need for gluten free mainstream products.  I practically live on Chex cereal (my favorite is Honey Nut) and have been known to sneak spoonfuls of Betty Crocker chocolate frosting for a “snack”.   In addition to the generous assortment of gluten free products (see listing below), General Mills provides a helpful fact sheet on healthful gluten free eating, reading labels, and foods that may contain gluten.   I especially love that General Mills clearly identifies their products “Gluten Free”.

Be sure to check out the Live Gluten Freely site as well as their Facebook page.  I’m thrilled to announce that starting next month, I will join Kim Bouldin of Gluten Free is Life and Vanessa Maltin of Celiac Princess as a Featured Blogger on Live Gluten Freely!

The Live Gluten Freely product box includes:

• Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Brownie Mix
• Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix
• Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy Chocolate Frosting
• Honey Nut Chex® Cereal
• Betty Crocker® Create-A-Bug® Fruit Flavored Snacks
• Betty Crocker® Fruit Flavored Snacks Variety Pack – Fruit Roll-Ups®, Fruit Gushers®, Fruit by the Foot®
• Peanut Butter Cookie Lärabar® Snack Bar
• Betty Crocker® Potato Buds® Mashed Potatoes
• Betty Crocker® Red Serving Spoon
• Coupons and More!

Maureen Stanley was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005. Way back before gluten-free was “mainstream“. Maureen created Hold The Gluten blog and podcast in 2008 as a way to connect members of the gluten-free community across the world.


  1. They are not worth the $4.29 I paid for them. My grandson took one bite of them and would not eat any more. Sure hope i can find the regular Potato Buds and not the GLUTEN FREE

  2. I have tried all of General Mills Products and have been very satisfied. I am sooooo happy that many companies are now recognizing the demand for gluten free products. In just the past year the gluten free market has grown dramatically. I could just imagine how it will be 5 years from now =)

    Love your blog! I look forward to reading more of your post.

  3. Hi!!….

    I read your post!! nice blog…I am sooooo happy that many companies are now recognizing the demand for gluten free products.
    it’s really helpful. thanks for sharing this.

  4. Eating gluten free products is very healthy. Have tried many products of General mills but my personal favorite is Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Brownie Mix.

    It tastes bit different from the normal brownie mix but have cultivated the taste and know prefer to get gluten free brownie mix only.

  5. @Barb Sparr: don’t lose hope on your grandson. Kids these days take time to learn to eat these healthier foodstuff.

    Look at the bright side: you got yourself a boxful to consume!

  6. This is very interesting post. It’s also good to know that you’ve joined Live Gluten Freely as a featured blogger. I’m a big fan of General Mills products. My personal favorites are Honey Nut Chex and Peanut Butter Cookie.

  7. As a person who is allergic to gluten I actually appreciate the above references. Many people would actually be much better off without gluten including me, but I am a big supporter of the idea that everyone is different and they should eat a diet that fits their particular body chemistry and metabolism. For me that is gluten free.

  9. I read your post!! nice blog…I am sooooo happy that many companies are now recognizing the demand for gluten free products.
