Cherrybrook Kitchen Mixes on Sale

Here's a shopping tip for those of you living in New England, or at least Connecticut, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island--Ocean State Job Lot has Cherrybrook Kitchen mixes (egg-free, dairy-free, peanut-free and tree nut-free) on sale for about $3.50. That is about $3 less than the going rate at Shaws Supermarket. Hurry though because there weren't many mixes left when we went this weekend. We found both chocolate and yellow cake mixes.

i cleared my grocery stores shelf, our boxes were on sale for 2 for $7. i haven't tried their frosting yet...still seems too expensive to me when i can make my own, don't you think??

Hmm. Do you think it is odd that they are on sale everywhere? I hope they aren't going under! The ones I bought aren't "due" till 2010. Wonder what this is all abut--that is a pretty big discount in a bunch of places. I think you're not in NE, so that means significant markdowns all over?

The CBK frosting here (in a tub ready-to-spread) is $3.29. I make my own, usually. This is my emergency supply for last minute birthdays.

I've tried the vanilla frosting. It's kind of a weird consistency....slightly translucent and stretchy is the only way I can describe it. It's definitely not like Betty Crocker ready made frosting. The taste is ok though. I hope they aren't going out of business. I LOVE their chocolate cake mix.

Well, I actually called CBK to ask why the low prices. They said they are NOT going out of business, just some stores bought in bilk. Phew!!

Yeah, the frosting is a little unusual. But, for convenience with the major food allergies you can't beat it! I mean, wow, frosting in a tub!
