Default What happened to marble cake mixes?

In the last couple years it seems all brands except Duncan Hines (which
I don't like as much) stopped selling them at the exact same time. Why?
Even all the name tags on the shelves were gone to signal they weren't
coming back. It was my favorite box cake mix, and Betty Crocker,
Pillsbury, and even the store brands like Shoprite just disappeared.
Trying to make my own wasn't nearly as good. Is the mix anywhere and
what happened?

Get a chocolate mix and a white mix, mix each according to the
directions, and then make two cakes, putting half of each in a baking
pan and swirling it. Eat one, freeze one.

Does Jiffy make chocolate cake mix? Each box only makes one layer, so
one chocolate and one white or yellow swirled together would make one
marble cake.

(Or how about swirling a white cake with some chocolate syrup?)

Or just make the white cake mix and take half of it and add some cocoa
to it.

Betty Crocker and Pillsbury have been the same company since 2001. My
guess is that marble cake just wasn't that popular anymore, and no
longer deserved shelf space.

What is lacking in the Hines mix? Maybe you could goose it up with
some good cocoa or vanilla.

Search out other stores near you for private label -- the Gilster-Mary
Lee corp still makes fudge marble cake mix.

Another brilliant question from a WebTVer. Duncan Hines, Betty
Crocker and Pillsbury are all trash.

Oh, for the love of...your nose is stuck so high in the air, if it
rains, you'll drown. Jaysus. I don't personally like box mixes, but
they have their place, as do the myriad of other kitchen shortcuts you
find so distasteful. Get over yourself, boyo.

Does he actually cook anything, or just spends his time on here bitching and

That's what I used to do, but... I would add more chocolate to the
chocolate because the marble part seems like darker chocolate. I know they
do make a chocolate cake, but finding it is the hard part. Last time I got
any I had to mail order it from Hometown Favorites but I threw all of the
mixes out when I discovered dead bugs in some.

I have seen other brands of mixes that make a single layer. They come in a
pouch. I can't remember the brand.

I've done that too, but now that I think about it, I think I used yellow
cake and not white.

No, they don't. They're f-ing garbage, and the pieces of shit who put
them out still load them with hydrogenated oils. I'd rather see those
folks killed slowly that enable them to buy a second yacht.

I do, but those who have me KFed seldom see evidence of such.
