Taste Test: Boxed Fudge Brownie Mix

Whether you were a kid bringing in a sweet for a bakesale, or a college kid making a late-night study break, we've probably all had brownies made from a boxed mix. They're easy to make, most requiring just vegetable oil, eggs, and water, and typically take less than 30 minutes to bake. So when the moment comes that you too want a dump-and-bake treat to satisfy your chocolate craving, to which mix should you turn? More

We Taste All The Pillsbury Poppin' Fresh Biscuit Flavors

We didn't eat many Pillsbury poppin' fresh biscuits as a kid, but we sure as heck ate a lot of poppin' fresh breadsticks and poppin' fresh cinnamon rolls. Little did I know when I decided to do a canned, ready-to-bake biscuit taste test there were not the two or three flavors of Pillsbury biscuits I was expecting, but a WHOPPING THIRTEEN WHOLE FLAVORS. Holy cow, that's a lot of biscuits! Well, we popped, baked, and tasted our way through nearly every one of them. Here's what we found. More

Mixed Review: New Pillsbury Funfetti Cookie Pop Kit

I used to baby sit. A lot. While most moms were more than happy to let me destroy their kitchen in the name of homemade, organic baked goods, some didn't have the requisite supplies (not even flour) and they didn't really want me to have to go out and buy them. To compensate, they'd give me a box or two of cake/cookie/muffin mix and a sixer of eggs. More

Sandwiched: Cinnamon Roll Waffles with Bacon-Apple Frosting

Just use the pop-out Pillsbury cinnamon roll dough, fire up your waffle iron, pat the dough rounds down, press, and voilà! Cinnamon roll waffles. But I'm not done yet. The filling is cream cheese and confectioners' sugar quickly whipped up with crisp bacon strips and apples sautéed in the rendered fat with brown sugar and bourbon. I know, and, you're welcome. More

Mixed Review: Pillsbury Brownie Minis

Given my love for Whole Foods two-bite brownies, I was eager to try out Pillsbury's new Brownie Minis mix flavors: raspberry and caramel. If there is any way to improve upon warm, chocolaty perfection, it's by infusing it with gooey jam or sticky, salty caramel. They tasted like a great version of a brownie made with cocoa powder—not quite as sumptuous as one made from chocolate, but certainly nothing to complain about. More

In Videos: Space Food Sticks TV Commercial

In the 1960s NASA asked Pillsbury to help them develop an edible food snack that American astronauts could conveniently eat in a space shuttle. The result of their efforts resulted in a glorious example of space food technology...which was then reformulated for the non-space-traveling public and aptly named Space Food Sticks. Watch the commercial for Space Food Sticks after the jump. And be sure to watch it all the way to the end; the last 3 seconds are awesome. [via io9]... More
