Fun Facts about Duncan Hines!

Duncan Hines’ food products are named after a 1930s traveling salesman who, on his travels across America, began making a list of the best local eateries for other salesmen to stop at when they were in town. His list found such a good reception that he later published two books before going on to found a bread bakery. Eventually Proctor & Gamble bought the rights to use Duncan Hines’ name, and now Duncan Hines’ cake mixes are one of the best-selling brands in America! Duncan Hines even has his own museum at Western Kentucky University.
