Disney has had cake pops in their candy stores and bakeries for several months now, and they seem to have stuck!
But since I went ahead and tried one on a recent Disneyland visit, I figured I’d weigh in as well! Unfortunately, I was too eager to try it and cut the cake pop before taking my first pic! Sorry about that!
I’m pretty positive on the general look of the cake pop. I love the Mickey shape, of course, and the drizzle of chocolate adds a “truffle”-like appearance, which I find pretty irresistible (thus the marred first photo!).
The cake pops deliver a pretty substantial heft as well, so right off the bat these might be good to share.
Once you check out the inside, you’ll see that this cake pop follows the standard recipe — a mixture of cake and frosting as the filling creating a very dense inner “cake.” Marshmallows are connected as the ears, and the whole thing is covered in chocolate or other toppings.
Overall, I was very pleased with this snack. I love frosting, I love cake, and the two together — surrounded by milk chocolate — was just about perfect. But I will agree with many commentors that the snack is super sweet. Don’t attempt this one unless you have a serious sweet tooth!
You can now find Cake Pops in most Disney World and Disneyland candy counters — Candy Cauldron, Goofy’s Candy Company, Main Street Confectionery, Pooh Corner, Marcelline’s, Candy Palace, etc. Flavors include vanilla, red velvet, marble, chocolate, and more. Coatings include white chocolate, colored sugar, milk chocolate, and others.
