Visiting the Betty Crocker Kitchens


It’s a little surreal to have been in the Betty Crocker Kitchens and have actually cooked there!

I, along with 24 other mom bloggers, were invited to Minneapolis last week to visit the General Mills headquarters. We learned all about General Mills’ sustainability efforts. They are growing their food on smaller farms and also using smaller cans to pack some of their vegetables, for example.

We also ate A LOT! We sampled some of General Mills’ brand-new dinner meals that are either already on the shelves or will be very soon. There are great new Hamburger Helper meals, pasta salads, and taco choices from General Mills that your kids will love!

The first night in Minneapolis, General Mills took us on a dinner cruise on Lake Minnetonka.

I had a really great time. Here’s a post I wrote about how General Mills is really listening to mom bloggers.
