  1. I need to get the blue raspberry mix and frosting, so I can take some cupcakes to work and have the crew spend the rest of their nights with blue mouths.

  2. How am I to keep up with absurdist baking mixes if they keep churning them out at this speed? I only just got the Betty Crocker watermelon at Target this weekend, and my Duncan Hines green velvet is still waiting in the cupboard.

  3. Key lime cookie mix in the background?! Whaaaat? I will now have to go looking for this.. Hopefully it is as delicious as the pie.

    1. The Key Lime cake mix wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be. It came out with the Pink Lemonade and Orangesicle cake.

      None of them had a very strong flavor, so I was pretty disappointed. Even using the matching frosting didn’t help.

    2. Walmart also has Blue Raspberry Snow Cone and Cotton Candy cookie mix and frosting, in addition to the new Key Lime Pie, Orangesicle, and A&W Root Beer Float flavors…

  4. Target has Pillsbury blue raspberry, orange cream,pink lemonade and key lime cake mix all with the corresponding frostings. I picked up the Blue raspberry and Orange. So far my wife made the blue raspberry cake and I have to say it had virtually no blue raspberry flavor. The frosting on the other hand was great. It tasted just like the blue raspberry tootsie fruit rolls. Hopefully the orange taste like the orange tootsie fruit rolls.

  5. I saw the root beer one on the bake center at work, and my first thought was– “that buyer’s getting fired.” I can’t wait to mark both of them down to a quarter in a month. They’ll still be overpriced.
