Last week, the brand posted a recipe for ‘Elf Bait,’ tapping into the popular Elf on the Shelf everyone seems to be talking about this season. This holiday season, Betty Crocker fans are looking to the brand for a little holiday inspiration, fun and tips for how they can spread the holiday cheer to friends.

By continually providing fans with great content, they will become the go-to brand for those with a sweet tooth this holiday season and next.
NO link was provided for the recipe or Facebook page, so I googled it.

Here are my results:

Nice Newsjacking job Econsultancy, YOU'RE #1 for Elf on the Shelf bait.

Econsultancy ranks higher than Betty Crocker in a Google search result. The Facebook recipe doesn't even show up on the page. Well we know why that is, Facebook isn't indexed by Google. The recipe post on Facebook does have 3,029 likes as of this writing. I'd say that is a lot of likes. ;-)
