Review: Starbucks - Sweet Lemon Cake Pop

Starbucks' Sweet Lemon Cake Pop features vanilla white cake and lemon butter cream covered in white chocolate icing and colorful sprinkles.

They're $1.50 each or two for $2.50.

The mix of vanilla white cake and lemon butter cream made for a rich and moist cake that brought to mind a brownie more than a cake. The consistency was also denser like a brownie and got me thinking "lemon bar."

The flavor was like lemons but divorced from much of the tanginess, which is weird, but enjoyable.

The icing was relatively thick and forms a hard, but yielding protective shell over the cake. I figure it helps keep the cake moist. Like most white chocolate, it's really sweet.

The sprinkles came sporadically and didn't add much other than a slight crunch and extra sugar.

Overall, Starbucks Sweet Lemon Cake Pop was pretty good and ideal for people who like the flavor of lemons, but not the sourness.
