Back to Betty’s roots
General Mills released its Betty’s Original Recipe Scratch Cake Mix, a line of cake mixes that call back to recipes found in the original Betty Crocker’s Cookbook.
“Betty went back to the basics for this recipe,” says Kris Patton, brand PR manager for General Mills. The formulations include ingredients found in consumers’ pantries, like sugar, flour, and cocoa, and eschew artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors.
The mixes are currently available in Golden Yellow, Chocolate Joy, and German Chocolate Delight for a suggested retail price of $2.79.
“The introduction of Ortega Good Grains Taco Shells satisfies the growing interest in high-quality meal solutions that are affordable and accessible,” says Haven Cockerham, vice-president and general manager at B&G Foods.
The shells are available in four varieties—Blue Corn, White Corn With Chia Seeds, Yellow Corn & Ancient Grains, and Whole Grain & Lentil—for a suggested retail price of $1.99 for a pack of 10. The company also released a line of Crispy Taco Toppers in jalapeño and onion varieties to add a bold crunch to tacos, burgers, salads, and more. They retail for $2.79 for a 3.5-ounce resealable pouch.
The duo worked with a nutritionist and based their formulation on the macronutrients of breastmilk, which is roughly half fat, half carbs, and some protein, they say.
“Breast milk is nature’s perfect baby food, so the alignment seemed really natural,” Heegel explains. “We wanted to keep the macronutrients constant in order to help ease a baby’s transition to solid foods. Since every bite counts at that difficult feeding stage, we wanted our baby food to be packed with the maximum nutrients.”
Multipacks of six 4-ounce pouches are available on Amazon for $26.95.
