Years ago when I was teenager my mother bought Duncan Hines carrot cake mixes that had a pouch of raisins, carrots and I'm pretty sure walnuts in it that you soaked in hot water then added to the cake mix. I'm a box mix baker and I've often wondered what happened to those mixes because they were really good. I think they actually had a couple of different flavors but I don't remember what the other one was.
Anyway today I went to the commisary (military grocery store) and right there on the shelf was the "New" Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Decadent Carrot Cake with the pouch of carrots and raisins. I can't wait to make a cake out of them. Just thought somebody out there might like to know!

Hey, I remember that mix and it was good. It'd wouldn't hold a candle to the one my sis makes but back then it tasted pretty good. I'll have to look for it at the store. Thanks for the heads up! If for the sake of "the good ole days" if nothing else.
