Just curious-has anyone heard customers/friends/family compare your cakepops to Starbucks cakepops? To anyone selling cakepops-is the supply at Starbucks hurting your business?
Just looking for some feedback. I personally haven't tried the cakepops at Starbucks, but I think I will out of curiosity

I make cake pops all the time but I don't sell...yet. When Starbucks first started selling them we HAD to try one in my family liked them.

You should go try one...then tell us what you think! icon_smile.gif I'm curious what others think as well!

They were yucky, the only one that was kind of good was the vanilla birthday cake one

They are small for the price. But it is Starbucks...

Me and couple of my friends tried them when they came out and we thought they were gross! I have never made cakepops and actually have never had one besides the one from Starbucks!

I had the tirasimu (sp) flavor and it was decent....I wouldn't say it was gross. I'm not a huge cake pop fan but I thought it was fine.

I like my cake pops better. The ones from Starbucks taste to artificial for me

No contest, seeing how my cakepops are made from all natural ingredients and their are made from all artificial ingredients - and that came from the coffee guy behind the counter!

I have had many friends tell me they bought ones at starbucks and they are not anywhere close to being as good as mine. They all say that they don't taste freshly made.

Starbucks should stick to coffee what there good at. I bought the birthday one for my three year old who eats anything sweet. he took one bite and threw it away. It looked almost raw inside.

I tried the Rocky Road cake pop a couple days ago, and I found it to be pretty tasteless. How can chocolate, marshmallow and nuts have no taste? I did think their salted caramel bars were pretty good, though.

I've never made cake pops but somebody bough some into the office from Starbucks and I agree with the previous comments about them being tasteless. Not good at all.

This makes me want to go try them for pure curiosity sake. I'm not a huge fan of cake pops/balls, but my bible study group loves my chocolate cream cake balls. I've been told they taste like a Ding Dong. (don't know if that's a compliment or

The birthday cake pop tastes exactly like underdone sugar cookie.
