I am not sure if the prices at all wal-marts are the same, but
they have their Duncan Hines cake mix priced at $.78 right now....

Just wanted to let y'all know!!! I am in Tennessee, not sure if it is like this everywhere.

It's the same price here too .. I just don't care for DH cake mix... for some reason, mine always want to fall in the center ... I don't open the oven door or disturb the cake in anyway... I changed to Pillsbury and have had great results... maybe I'm just doing something wrong to the DH cake mixes...

Have the same problem with DH-switched to Pillsbury and never have a problem! Do the same thing as far as mixing, additions, time, don't open oven, etc.
What you do may be a "little thing" but "little things" add to alot!

Cheryl,
I didn't notice the price of the Pillsbury. (Sorry) I should have looked, I just always buy DH. And the price is normally $.94 a box (almost 20 cents different). I bought 12 boxes!!!!!!! LOL My buggy was full and wouldn't hold anything else, or I would have gotten more. Also, I noticed there was a thread on a possible powdered sugar shortage....They only had 15 bags of powdered sugar in the store.....I bought 10(some of them were busted) But I don't know if this is a "shortage" in this case, cause they were out of alot of other stuff too.

I am so glad to read this thread, I thought maybe it was just me! I have the same problem with DH..except for the French Vanilla...that turns out fine, but other than that one I have problems! icon_confused.gif When I use a cake mix now, I only use Betty Crocker, which I can get on sale for $ .75... that is the cheapest I've seen it anywhere!

Gee they are a lot more expensive up here in Canada.. I just bought a few DH at a Walmart last weekend and they were $1.76. Here in my small town at the local grocery store they are $2.19 so I was happy to pay $1.76.. I need to stock up when I go south..LOL

Liz, you are like me. Here at the base store in Germany the DH price is $1.45-$1.75. Not sure why the prices are different. But I tell you when they go on sale for .75-$1.00 I load up. I always check the dates, too. Plus it is easy for me to know when they have an excess of product that they are putting on sale because I work there!!LOL And our Pillsbury prices are usually about $1.28 or something. I just prefer the DH because I haven't had a prblem yet. Maybe I will try one out to see if there is a difference. Sounds like a good reason to make a cake, right??

Tanya,
That is why I have stuck with DH, cause no probems yet. Well, I DID have a problem once with the Butter recipe Fudge flavor. It broke in half and the inside looked REALLY wierd! It didn't look like cake was supposed to look like. That time I was really glad the cake broke!!! I won't buy that flavor anymore. I usually just buy white mix and doctor it up. I did buy Devil's food today, cause I have to make a chocolate cake this weekend. Do you think that would work, ok? I have never tried this flavor. I really don't like chocolate cake! LOL
I had to go check the dates on my boxes, cause after I read your post, I got worried I might have bought old mixes!!! LOL

I will have to test the others more too....

And yes, that is a great reason for you to bake a cake!!! icon_lol.gif

Since this came up I thought I'd let everyone in the Toronto area know that No Frills also has cake mix on sale for 99 cents. I believe they're either Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker. Not sure which one.
