Fruit Helper to the Rescue

Created January 10, 2017
We’re nostalgic for this tasty treat—easy to recreate today with one of Betty’s delicious fruit crisp recipes.

When you wanted a simple dessert that was sure to please, you turned to Betty Crocker’s Fruit Helper! An extension of the Hamburger Helper Line, Fruit Helper paired pudding and graham crackers with a can of fruit for a tasty treat in less than 90 seconds. Really! Unfortunately, the line was discontinued, but you can still get your fix of fruity goodness with our Easy Granola Apple Crisp, Peach Crisp, or Roasted Almond-Cranberry-Pear Crisp!
