One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Trying out Starbuck's Cake Pops

I gave the Starbuck's Cake Pops a try for the time just recently and wanted to share a few photos of it. We ended up getting a pair of Birthday Cake Pops, Rocky Road Cake Pops and the Tiramisu Cake Pops. The first sets of photos are of the packaging and the cake pops as it sits when you open it. Since, I'm a graphic designer by trade; I'm a sucker for packaging designs and such. Well, I wasn't blown away by the design and thought it was just ok. But what about the cake pops? How where they?

As you can see, they're not big at all. They're much smaller than I thought they would be. It's maybe a quarter of the size of a standard cupcake. Or maybe even the size of a mini cupcake, give or take. The taste and flavors were ok and kind of dense. It's almost doughy and as another person would put it, too moist. It really didn't stand out flavor-wise, but visually, it's really cute. And I'm not about cute, I wanted something more. And it's kind of sad to say, it failed to deliver. I don't know, maybe my expectations were too high.

I enjoyed the rocky road cake pop the most. I really don't think these are made for adults or for grown men like me. It was way too easy to put the whole thing into my mouth without even trying. I'm also not sure I'm happy with the price. The value is not there for me and I would rather find some other way to satisfy my sweet tooth, which shouldn't be hard anyways. But it's a decent try for a first timer.
