Dear Betty Crocker,
My name is Valerie Arias, and I am the mother of three children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Due to my sons’ health concerns, we have adopted a Gluten Free environment in the home.
Previously this was extremely difficult, due to the fact that my son’s love treats, and there were very few available to them. In the past, we have tried mixes and boxed goods to try to imitate the great taste and satisfaction that comes from indulging in a fantastically wonderful dessert. We had thus far been unsuccessful, every new treat tried was a waste of money and food, as texture issues are a large part of our life.
You can not imagine the great joy of finding your G.F brownie mix on the shelf in Safeway! I practically danced a jig! Not only did my sons kill the brownies, but my daughter uttered a sigh of bliss (I haven’t heard one of these from her since brownies were abolished), and my husband looked at me quizzically, as he thought I had strayed from the diet.
Needless to say, your boxed dessert was a tremendous hit in our family. I cannot describe to you exactly what this means to our family, but you have made my day a little bit easier.
P.S. I have posted information about this treat on many of the blogs I visit, as well as my own. WWW.AUTISMWARRIOR.BLOGSPOT.COM
