Fun-da-Middles Review and Giveaway

I decided to join this group called My Blog Spark. They hook you up with trying new products, amongst other things.  They sent me a new product to try from Betty Crocker called Fun da-middles.  It's a cup cake with a creamy filling!  It's set to hit the shelves later this year!

They come in three different flavors.  Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Filling, Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Filling, and Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Filling.  

Also, They are going to give a free box to our lucky winner of this giveaway! Here is how you can enter.  Leave a comment letting me know about an upcoming event or gathering at which you would like to debut the new Betty Crocker Fun da-middles!  That's it, super easy. I'll randomly select a winner and your package will be mailed out in about a week.  The giveaway will last until Tuesday night!

Here is my review of the product. (the truth!)

I received the Vanilla cake with the vanilla filling to try. I actually really liked it.  I liked how easy it was to make.  It took about 5 minutes to whip up and then, fill the cup cake pans and bake. Super easy.  Its a fun twist to your normal cupcakes without the hastle of making them from scratch,  I give it a 10 for convenience!

Taste and texture... the center frosting was a little more "marshmellowie" than I expected. I think I would have liked it better with a little bit more creamy filling.   I really think I would like the other flavors better.  I like the idea of the chocolate filling with the vanilla cake. Chocolate just seems like it would be creamier to me.  But as for the taste... I liked it, I'd give it about an 8.

My husband liked them. He said "it's like making your own home made Twinky. Only better!"

You really don't need to frost them.  Just think of the frosting being on the inside.  But I frosted them anyway.  Who doesn't love frosting right? I'd say that I was actually pleasantly surprised with the product. I'm definitely going to be trying the other flavors.

I would use them as a special treat for my niece and nephews when we go to visit them on vacation.

Those look SO good! I would use them for the special C.P.A party I'm going to throw for my husband when we find out he is officially a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). I'm planning on serving different foods that start with one of the letters, and cupcakes would be perfect and delicious!

Those actually sound pretty good - especially frosted! I would serve them at a block party!
