One of my favorite things about shopping after the holidays are over is that you can frequently get a great deal on mixes for baked goods simply because they are holiday flavors. Now, I don’t know about you, but I love pumpkin bread any time of the year. And, I am always willing to try a new fun flavor of waffle mix.
I do enjoy trying new mixes but I do have an important rule that I make myself follow when shopping after holiday (any holiday) sales for baking mixes. The price of the mix needs to be less than what the price would be if I bought the ingredients separately. That pumpkin bread mix makes two full loaves and is really heavy because of the can of pumpkin in the box. This was a good deal. The scone and waffles mixes were purchased for just a couple bucks each. Also, great deals.
Do you buy holiday mixes? What are your favorites?
