I have a confession to make. One of my favorite things to do when we travel is to go to the grocery store.
You never know what youâ€™ll find on the shelves.
And I should know. In the last year our family has driven through 41 states and I visited at least one grocery store in each. Itâ€™s one of the hidden benefits of staying in vacation rental homes or at specialty resorts that include kitchens.
As Iâ€™m walking down the aisle I often wonder, does anybody really buy this stuff?
Case in point is the new Shake-N-Pour cupcake mix we spotted at our local Publix supermarket. Iâ€™m sorry Betty Crocker but â€śjust add waterâ€ť doesnâ€™t bolster my confidence in your mix. FYI, I donâ€™t normally use cake mixes, and I never use ones that remove the need for nutritionally beneficial ingredients, like eggs.
If youâ€™ve ever seen Bill Cosbyâ€™s Chocolate Cake for Breakfast routine you will know what I mean by â€śthe need for nutritionally beneficial ingredients.â€ť Yes, Dads â€“ and occasionally Moms â€“ will be like Bill and just let them eat cake at six oâ€™clock in the morning.
But what do you think? Is this something you would buy? Maybe use to make cupcakes for your family and/or friends? Or are you thinking, â€śyuck-o!â€ť
Let me know, and if we get enough comments I might just test out this product and let you know how it tastes.
