They are Starbucks Cake Pops, in the Birthday Cake flavor.
I am actually well-versed in cake pops, having made them once a few years ago, after seeing them on Bakerella - the original cake pop master herself.
When I first heard Starbucks was going to have them, I was rather un-inthused. To be honest (I know this is practically sacrilegious for some of you major Starbucks fans), I've never been a huge fan of Starbucks food products, except for their pumpkin bread which I would eat every single day if I could.
A few weeks after the pops made their big Starbucks debut, I happened to venture into one of my many local 'Bucks and had a bit of a sweet-tooth (who am I kidding - I always have a bit of a sweet tooth). I noticed the cute little pink pops with the sweet sprinkles, and thought "hell, I'll give them a try".
Trying the cake pops was one of the best and worst decisions I've made in a while. They are amazing, like one of my all-time favorite sweet treats, ever. The pros and cons of these amazing little pops are as follows:
They are tasty, and make me happy.
You can eat them while driving (trust me, I've done it).
They are pink, and therefore fabulous.
They are 150+ calories each.
They cost money.
I am now going to Starbucks multiple times a week, and don't even really care about the coffee.
Clearly this is a toughie with the pros and cons running such a close race, and I just can't quite kick this new little addiction of mine. I'm hoping this is a phase, because at this rate, all I want for Christmas is Starbucks gift cards.
