I need to move!!!! lol I just got back from the store....6 cake mixes, all Ducan Hines...$1.79 per box!!!! icon_surprised.gificon_mad.gificon_sad.gif With tax it's more like $2.00/per box. Before I left the house this morning, I called Wal-mart & asked if they could tell me what their price was on the mixes I needed...after waiting for about 6 minutes, someone came back and told me they were $1.29/each. So considering I have to drive an extra 8-10 minutes, 18 miles or so, through lots & lots of traffic to get to the Wal-mart that never has a parking space that isn't on the "back-forty" of the lot, and I would have a 3 yr old and 11 month old with me....I chose to pay $1.79/each at the grocery store that's near my son's school!!! lol icon_razz.gif

Also - 2 lb. bags of 10x pwd sugar has gone up to $1.50 here...it used to be $1.09. But the butter has dropped in price by about 30 cents, while milk is up 25 cents or so. There are still a lot of empty shelves at our store, though...especially the sugar shelf! I bought 7 bags of pwd sugar...there were 5 left after that. And it's a good thing I didn't need chocolate, spice, french vanilla, or the golden butter recipe cake mixes....they only had 2 or 3 each of those flavors....I needed lemon and white....thank goodness!! This hurricane sure has screwed things up around here....our prices on everything (& I do mean EVERYTHING) have rocketed due to it being more difficult to get things delivered as usual to the stores....can't wait 'till things get back to normal.

I think I struck it rich. 2 weeks ago I bought DH at my local winn dixie and paid 1.79 the next day I went to sweetbay which is the new store taking over kash and karry and they had it for 1.19. well this past weekend I was in winn dixie again and they were clearancing out pillsbury for .47 a box for that price I stocked up and bought all they had I got 20 boxes 6 different flavors could not beat that deal.

Has anyone tried the WalMart brand? I'm too scared to try it. I'm not sure if it would taste good or not. And Pillsbury cake mixes are $.83 here. I can't say I've tried Betty Crocker. They may be priced a bit higher here, but I'm not sure.

DH is 98cents, Pillsbury is 88cents, BC is over $1- funny how the area makes the price!

Hey Missmersh - where in TN are you from? I'm also in Tennessee. My walmart almost always has Pillsbury for 88 cents and that's just about all I ever buy. I've got several DH in my pantry that I need to use, but always end up going and buying more Pillsbury.

I have decorated a cake once and once only with containerized icing. Never again. It is way to soft to use for borders and forget anything else. I like making my own icing as I know what went into it and it makes more for less money.

It will do in a pinch for a filling or just covering the cake but I usually make 2 batches of bc at a time so that I always have some on hand.

I've used the Wal Mart brand and they come out just fine..can't tell the difference. At our local grocery store they have Pillsbury mixes 10 for $10 every other month,so I tend to stock up on them then.

I have have used the walmart brand cake mix and have no problems, tastes the same. Only complaint is the box instructions are hard to read. If you are worried, try mixing one box of walmart brand with your favorite brand and see what you think, I did this the first time also.

I am, like, totally bummed! The DH took the family to Walmart after dinner to buy cake mixes and they only had TWO lousy boxes of the sale mixes! Bummer!

did you get a raincheck? I always ask the person working that isle if there are any more in the back-alot of times there are-they have to restock the section anyway so most of the time (depends on the worker) they don't mind checking-and if they do mind-oh well-they do it anyway and I thank them and go about my merry way.

I've used the Wal-Mart white one-to me it is denser-didn't really care for it-I don't eat cake but the look and feel didn't seem right to me-didn't get any complaints but I decided not to use it again.

Whenever I find cake mix on sale I stock up and store in the freezer. They last an eternity and still taste exactly the same.
