The new line-up offers ‘A Sweet for Every Style’ whether you’re a Choc Star or a Peanut Butta Lova, Betty Crocker and Hershey fans will get to experience a new line of cookie mixes, cupcake mixes and frostings made with the iconic flavours consumers know and love, including Hershey’s, Reese’s and Almond Joy.
“We are very excited about our continued partnership and the launch of all these new flavours,” said Jared Pippin, Betty Crocker associate marketing manager. “Our consumers love the new combinations and that we have created a sweet to match the style, including favourites such as s’mores, Cookies ‘n’ Crème, and Reese’s.”

Recipe and Celebration ideas
Mix and match the products to make your own creation. Bake up a batch of cookies on a rainy day and put a smile on someone’s face, or share a little cupcake sweetness to celebrate a special event.
Put together a little care package of cookies and cupcakes for a relative or friend and share the goodness.
For a fun and festive birthday celebration, create a tower of cupcakes with different flavoured frostings and cookies surrounding the base. When entertaining a crowd, put together a dessert tray with samples of different recipes for guests to pick their favourites to try.
Facebook Fan Inspired Recipes
Last spring, the team invited Facebook fans into the Betty Crocker kitchens to test the products before launching. The feedback was very positive according to Pippin.
“In fact, our Facebook fans not only baked up the new products, but also went a step further to provide recipe ideas using the different flavours.”
