Mrs. Butterworth's is an American brand of syrups and pancake mixes owned by ConAgra Foods. The syrups come in distinctive bottles shaped in the form of a matronly woman, Mrs. Butterworth. The syrup was introduced in 1961.[1] In 1999, the original glass bottles began appearing as plastic bottles.[2]


One of the main voice actresses for it included the late Mary Kay Bergman.[3]

In 2007, Mrs. Butterworth was used in a series of ads for GEICO, in which she helped an actual customer with her testimonial.[4]

In 2009, then-parent company Pinnacle Foods held a "first name contest" for the product, the winning name being "Joy".[5][6]

In 2019, she appeared along with an actor playing Colonel Sanders in a KFC commercial spoofing a scene from Ghost, promoting chicken and waffles using Mrs. Butterworth's syrup.
