Celebrate National Cupcake Lovers Day with Otis Spunkmeyer!

Another day, another fun foodie holiday giving us a reason to enjoy some of our favorite sweets! From National Blueberry Muffin Day in July to National Cookie Day in December, the fun never ends—and because I love Otis Spunkmeyer’s variety of sweet and delicious snacks, they’re always my go-to when I want to whip together a fun and easy treat to celebrate!

This Tuesday is National Cupcake Lovers Day, and as someone who loves cupcakes, naturally I’m planning to celebrate with my favorite mini cupcakes from Otis Spunkmeyer! Their Mini Chocolate Cupcakes and Mini Golden Cupcakes are both filled with vanilla sweet crème and topped with sprinkles, and they’re made with “no funky stuff” (aka no artificial flavors or colors, no high fructose corn syrup, and no partially hydrogenated oils). I like to think of that as a two-for-one: delicious cupcakes that are also a better-for-you snack option. Sounds like a sweet deal to me!

If, like me, you’re celebrating your love for cupcakes this Tuesday, here are a couple cupcake-centric recipe hacks I’d highly recommend! 

Blend Otis Spunkmeyer Mini Chocolate Cupcakes with ice cream, milk and peanut butter in a blender until smooth. Serve in a large glass and top with whipped cream and sprinkles! (Recipe by Serious Eats)

Place Otis Spunkmeyer Mini Golden Cupcakes upside down on top of mini ice cream cones, and dunk into melted white chocolate until neatly coated. Top with natural rainbow sprinkles and red cinnamon imperials, and you’re done! (Recipe by Brite and Bubbly)

You can find Otis Spunkmeyer cupcakes—plus their cookies, loaf cakes, muffins and more—in the snack aisle at grocery stores nationwide.

Father’s Day Gifts For Your Bearded Man

There’s something so appealing about a man who is comfortable in his own skin and with his masculinity, and even more so when he knows how to take great care of himself. This is especially true for a man confident enough to punctuate his look with some great facial hair. So if the dad in your life is rocking a killer beard, you now have a new best friend for Father’s Day: Lovely Beards.

Read on for a rundown of some of our best beard care products currently available for the big daddy in your life.

Beard Oils and Balms

Lovely Beards’ beard oils and Shea Butter Beard Balms are a great gift for the dad who has always winged it and left his beard to nature. Both are made from the highest quality organic ingredients and available in a variety of versions, including Black Pepper, Bourbon, Gingerbread, Mandarin Cedar wood, Nectarine Mint, Unscented and Vanilla Sandalwood.

Our beard oils will help moisturize and nourish dad’s beard and skin, helping him groom his beard more successfully while guarding against that rash that can occur when skin gets dry. These oils are a great gift for the man who has got his beard in pretty good shape, but wants a little more dapper-guy energy in his look.

On the other hand, if you need a subtle way to tell dad he needs to take his beard up a notch, check out Lovely Beards’ beard balms. They will help him not only moisturize and care for his facial hair and skin, but also give his sometimes-scraggly beard the hold it needs.

Best of Both Worlds

Finally, if you really want to make dad feel special, opt for the Lovely Beards Gift Box and give him oils and balms to keep him gleaming all year long.

So as Father’s Day approaches, remember that you can share the benefits of beard oils and beard balms with the dad in your life.
