Is there anything else that I could use to cover cake pops in besides candy melt? I've never tasted it, but I've heard it's not that great. Its a huge deal to me that's things are not only pretty but taste great too. Don't want my cake pops to fall either. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

FromScratchSF (member here on CC) has some photos on her facebook page, says she's dipped hers in ganache or icing, as she doesn't like candy melts either.

You can use real chocolate. If you want colors, use white chocolate and tint it with candy colors (I think they're oil-based, so the chocolate wont sieze up when you add a water-based tint).
