Betty Crocker Watermelon Flavored Cupcake Mix and Frosting - #BiteIntoSummer Review

I received products for review from Platefull Cop-Op. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Betty Crocker invites you to welcome the seasons with all-new Watermelon Cake & Frosting -- available only at Target! Welcome spring with this tasty watermelon-flavored cake and frosting, and create your own summertime treat with an easy-to-make watermelon slice-shaped cake or fun-to-eat cupcakes recipe.

I created cupcakes using Betty Crocker Watermelon Flavored Cake and Frosting as an Easter dessert. Following the directions on the box, I was able to make 24 cupcakes. Both the mix and the frosting tasted very much like watermelon. The mix itself is pink in color and has little chocolate chips to resemble watermelon seeds. The frosting is green in color. When I created my cupcakes, I added a marshmallow decoration on top for the Easter holiday.

There's not a Target store in any close proximity of where I live, so I'm unable to purchase Betty Crocker Watermelon Flavored Cupcake Mix and Frosting. It'd be nice if the mix and frosting were available at other locations. The cupcakes went over well with the dinner guests and there were lots of comments on how delicous they were. I like watermelon flavored foods and thought the cupcakes were quite yummy, although next time I think I'll pair the frosting with a different flavored cake mix and vice versa to create a combination of watermelon flavor with another flavor.
