I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these two products.

Pillsbury Valentine's Funfetti Cake Mix
Distributed by: Multifoods Inc.
Contains Wheat, Soy, and Milk Products.
Allergy Information: Manufactured on shared equipment with products containing egg products.

So, this is the cake mix and it looks really well labeled IMPHO.

Pillsbury Valentine's Funfetti Frosting
Distributed by: Multifoods Inc.

Now, on this one, it does say what type of vegetable oil is used in both the frosting and the candy bits (soybean, cottonseed). But there are no allergy alerts or "may contains" whatsoever.

Again, it looks well labeled IMPHO, but then again, I'm getting kinda weird if I don't see a "may contain" label.

I bought them for my daughter's class for Valentine's Day but I did buy some for home as well.

I just wanted to check them out here first.

Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hi,
I have not used the Valentine's Day product, however we did use the same brand Christmas funfetti, and we have used many times the everyday (no holiday) funfetti cupcake mix and frosting! We have never had any problems with this product!!
Good Luck

emily's mommy, thank-you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] This is the first time that I've seen this product at all, so I didn't know that they had different "Funfetti"'s. I thought it was Valentine's Day specific.
It's not in either one of the grocers I shop at. I found it in the dollar store the other night - both items. We don't have Pillsbury cake mixes in the grocery store (or the ones I go to anyway).
I feel better. Thank-you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

tidina, yes.
The cake mix is the one that had what I thought was EXCELLENT labeling. If you want, I can type out all of the ingredients.
It was the frosting, also with sprinkles that I was a bit more concerned about.

tidina, I thought this labeling on the cake mix looked really good:-
Contains Wheat, Soy, and Milk Products.
Allergy Information: Manufactured on shared equipment with products containing egg products.

We have used that cake mix with no trouble.
However we did our own icing as they were "tie dye" cupcakes for a special party. So I have not used the Funfetti icings.

Hi,
We use the Pillsbury cake mixes exclusively and the 'Funfetti' mixes and frostings most often--and so far, 3+ years or so, we've never had a problem with them! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] (US specific)
I have made cakes, cupcakes, and cookies with the cake mix and always use the frosting and sprinkles, also. In fact, it has become my 'standby' quickie to grab for all those preschool birthday and holiday parties they seem to ALWAYS be having (and they gladly let *me* provide the baked goods lately) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I trust them (as much as I can trust any product)!
Good luck,
Lisa

I just got an email from a mom in my daughter's class asking about Funfetti mixes for her daughter's birthday party this weekend. I usually only tell people to use Betty Crocker, but she said her daughter really wanted the Funfetti cake, so I thought I might as well do a search. Other than the fact that searching for "Pillsbury" brings up over 160 results, I was thrilled to find this very current thread with exactly the info I was looking for.
Thanks guys! Oh, and both my girls have another party to go to on Sunday, but for once I don't have anything to worry about, since the boy has a peanut allergy, also. Imagine being able to completely relax at a birthday party. (I know their comfort zone and they are even stricter than I am, since their son is extremely sensitive.) And I believe the little boy has a crush on my older daughter. (She's an older woman, too. He's kindergarten to her second grade.) Think her having a peanut allergy too has anything to do with that? Certainly would make the dating scene a whole lot easier. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Oh, everyone, thank-you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
They don't sell the Pillsbury cake mixes or frosting in the grocery stores near me. I bought them at a $1.00 store (which means an extra bonus if they're safe because they were also really inexpensive).
Kim M., that's why I started a separate thread about the Funfetti items because I knew how many Pillsbury threads there are (having participated in quite enough of them and usually not too pleased with Pillsbury).
No, these two items, although the cake mix more than the frosting, look really well labeled. And American specific is great because they are made in America even though I'm buying them in Canada.
Kim M., I think that sounds wonderful - the birthday party. I don't know if we have had that experience yet. In fact, I don't think so. But how nice not to have to worry and the crush, well, that's kinda bonus. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
My MIL for some reason had thought that I had only purchased the icing and she's been looking for a cake mix for me. She asked me last night about the "no name" muffin mix from our local grocery and I told her that Mom, it's probably safe, but I'm supposed to call before I purchase the item so that's why I tend not to buy them. Then, I told her it was okay because I had gotten the cake mix as well.
I was actually at the same $1.00 store yesterday and almost bought more (I bought three cake mixes, two icings), but I thought, wait and see if the kids even like them before I buy more. But I do have to say that they're priced really well and it's really unclear to me why Pillsbury cake mixes aren't in my grocery stores (I've also never seen them in grocery stores in other towns I've lived in).
Anyway, great stuff. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Thank-you everyone. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
