You won’t believe it but there never was a “Betty Crocker”. It’s a fictional character that came from adverts used by the Washburn-Crosby Company all the way back in 1921. It was created from an entry in a contest run by the Saturday Evening Post.
When General Mills acquired the Washburn-Crosby Company somebody high up decided they liked the Betty character enough that they would retain her and they added the Betty Crocker spoon logo to their portfolio which was used all the way up to 2003.
Nowadays, Betty Crocker is part of the American cultural landscape and you can hear “her” name mentioned in popular TV shows and movies and throughout our literature.
