      It’s “B,” J1 and Pandas! Thanks for asking.
      It was answered in the next blog post after this. 🙂

    […] Here’s the answer to my Betty Crocker question from my last blog post, 50 Shades of Betty: My Strange Sophomore Sleepovers. It was B. That was the Betty who scared Carol and I. Thanks so much for your […]

    Since I’m also a compulsive researcher, I found a baking kit online. The picture on the box confirmed my correct guess, even though I won’t give it away here. 🙂

      LOL, Shelli! Of course you’d research it–you’re a writer, too! And thanks for not giving the correct answer just yet. Can you email the image to me? I’ll post it when I give the answer. I know Carol will enjoy seeing it again as much as I will. I hope it doesn’t scare us now. 🙂 (BTW, did it scare you, too?)

    Thank you for your guess Cindy, but I am sorry to tell you that there was no real Aunt Jemima. She was characterized by a series of women who, during their separate tenures, went around the country making pancakes at fairs and other events. It will probably be the subject of an upcoming column. (Note to all: Cindy would join Carol and I for some of those spooky sleepovers, but we’d sleep in a different room–devoid of Betty Crocker’s picture–where the three of us would fit, and have a better shot at annoying Carol’s older sister Susan.) 🙂

    hahaha! That was very funny. (I guessed C.) One of them seemed to consider Mrs. Nixon a fashion idol, based on the hairdo. I will be chuckling for quite some time. It’s totally believable!!

    Please, please don’t tell me there’s no Aunt Jemima!

    Tina: Great point! The Betty Crocker spoon is also red. I wonder if that has something to do with it. I found out that there is a book out called “Finding Betty Crocker.” It was published in 2005, so I think I’ll check the library. It would be a kick to read it.

    I’m choosing A …she just doesn’t look friendly…and I could see why a child would find her scary. But all of the “Betty’s” are dressed in red…wonder why that is ???

    Hi, Carol here. (The Carol mentioned in Tobi’s blog.) What fond memories!!! Great times!!!!
    If my memory serves me correctly the Betty on the box was… {Oops! Sorry, Carol! You can’t tell our readers yet!}

      Carol, I miss you! I am so happy we’re back in touch because of this silly little blog post. I hope you don’t mind that I edited out your answer. I’ll give the correct letter in my next blog post in about two weeks. And BTW, your memory served you just fine because you gave the correct answer, LOL! xoxoxoxox

    After looking at all those photos, I’m still terrified of “A”. I’d never want her in my house, much less my bedroom !!

    I’m going with C. And then I’m going to hide under the bed. 🙂

      I couldn’t agree more, Roz. Every one of these renderings are bone-chilling.

    I say A. She’s not a friendly looking Betty. I think I would have been afraid of her.

    I’m guessing it was A, because that is the most stern-looking Betty Crocker. The others seem more friendly. If I’m wrong, then I guess that it’s one of the other non-smiling photos!

    E. she looks like Laurie Petrie in the Walnut episode, you were afraid she was missing her thumbs and that she had eyes in the back for her head

      I love all of your responses! Keep them coming. I’ll let everyone know the correct answer in my next email newsletter, coming out two weeks from now.
      In the meantime, Carol and I had lost touch for a little while, and I am so thrilled that, thanks to this blog post, we are back in touch again!
      Karen C: That was my and my sister’s favorite episode of “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” so you got an LOL from me on that.
