Five Things: Breast Cancer Awareness Month Guilty Pleasures

This month marks the 27th anniversary of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a national call to raise awareness of the disease and funds for a cure. To support the cause, a slew of baking extraordinaire’s have launched limited edition gorgeous treats with proceeds benefiting breast cancer charities. Here are some of our favorite (not-s0-guilty) pink picks:

Yoplait conducts the highly successful Save Lids to Save Lives® program, which takes place from September through December each year. For each pink lid redeemed by customers, Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Komen, up to $2.5 million.
