Better Homes and Gardens presents the State Cookie Contest!

“We want every state to be just a bit sweeter and this was the perfect way to make it happen. The BHG cookie sheets received great reviews by our bloggers and the final products all look delicious.”
- Elise Contarsy, Vice President of Brand Licensing

Every state has an official flower, flag and even a tree… so why not a cookie? That’s the question Better Homes and Gardens (BHG), with the help of 50 bloggers from every state in the USA, hopes to answer with its State Cookie Contest. Using BHG branded bakeware, available exclusively at Walmart, each blogger was challenged to create a cookie that they feel best represents their home state. The contest, which lives on the BHG Live Better Facebook page, began on June 30 and will end on July 27. Fans of the page can vote for their favorite cookie and the blogger with the most votes will get a full set of bakeware to give away on their blog.
