I learned something a little disturbing in my English class today. Betty Crocker is a made up person. Yes, it's true. Marjorie Child Husted was the founder of Betty Crocker way back in the 1930's. The portait of Betty Crocker has always changed throughout the years, but the creepiest image is the one they use now.
The image above is actually a composition of 75 real women who use the Betty Crocker brand. The Betty Crocker corporation wanted to have a spokes person who looked like the typical user, so why not have her look like all of the typical users! It's hard to say what nationality Betty Crocker is. She's not just Caucasion...maybe a little Hispanic? I think they tried to make her look as "timeless" as possible.
