"Just wanted to say that I have now tried both packets of baking mixes.  First the brownies (all now eaten) and this afternoon I made the lamingtons.  Im soooooooo impressed and sooooooo happy that I have finally found a tasty, not too expensive, low carb sweet treat to have made up in the freezer.  I will never be without a packet in my cupboard !!!!!!!!!!" - thanks  Lindy

"I was given chocolate bake mix by a friend, left it in the cupboard for ages assuming it would be average tasting. Made brownies this evening and will definitely be buying more and recommending it to all my colleagues in the health industry." - Regards, Sandra
