I've actually heard of this before. I don't have a clue if it's any good.

I've seen it in the store where I shop, but have never been tempted to buy.

I have never heard of it. I will not be buying it. Arousal batter can't be good. My favorite pancake and waffle mix is out of production. So I am on strike. Aunt Jamina Buckwheat mix, RIP.

I say why don't you make it from scratch? Also I actually would like to buy some just for a heck of it. I never buy any mixses, I make my pancakes always from scratc. But for "american" pancakes I might just try this. I bet my wife will like the taste. She is used to everythng from the box.

Oh, yeah and do remember air line food being, well, at least it was good and plentyful(sp?)

Patty, I've had good luck with these mixes if you can find them near you.

Pancake Mixes | Hodgson Mill and I love their Buckwheat Pancake Mix.

Try making GoodWeed's pancakes from this thread. Mrs .40 and the teenagers keep requesting them for "Big Sunday Breakfast".
