So begins Kadh’s blog.
So, Starbucks has new small dessert options called “petites”. I’ve tried them all and here’s what I have to say about them.
The Birthday Cake Pop (170 calories) is okay. Cake and frosting should be good and simple. It’s kind of boring and the frosting isn’t as good as you get on your average cake bought at the local grocery store.
The Carrot Cake Mini Cupcake (190 calories) is dry. The topping is good.
The Lemon Sweet Square (120 calories) is pretty good. The topping isn’t overpowering, although I would prefer simple powdered sugar. The cake itself is tasty without overpowering or artificial lemon taste. One of my favorites.
The Peanut Butter Mini Cupcake (180 calories) is dry. Go eat a peanut butter cup instead.
The Red Velvet Whoopie Pie (190 calories) was good. The inside is creamy and the cake tastes like cake. In western PA, we call them mini-gobs. Other places call them bobs, black-and-whites, or BFOs (Big Fat Oreos).
The Rocky Road Cake Pop (180 calories). Oops, I didn’t try this one. I’ll have to fix that.
The Salted Caramel Sweet Square (190 calories) was also yummy. I like salted caramel so this went right to the spot. I could have done without the pretzels, but otherwise it was pretty good.
The Tiramisu Cake Pop (170 calories) was okay. Better than the Birthday Cake Pop, and not bad. I like just about anything with a bit of coffee flavor.
