Mickey Cake Pops come in three flavors at Disneyland- vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet cake. Today I’m trying the chocolate pop, which is covered in a hard chocolate coating and decorated with bands of dark chocolate.

The Mickey ears on the pop aren’t cake, but marshmallow, and they’re stuck to the sides of the pop with melted chocolate.

The inside cake of the pop has a kind of doughy, almost fudge-like consistency, and sits very heavy in your stomach.

Is It Easy To Eat?

As far a mobility goes, the Mickey Cake Pops are super-easy to eat while waiting in line, strolling around the park, or taking the tram back to the parking garage. However, the density of the cake in the middle of the pop forces you to really slow down to eat it. This won’t be a snack that’s gone in a few seconds.

Mom-in-Chief Jamie’s Opinion

The Chocolate Mickey Cake Pops are very dense and I also found them overly moist in the middle. They’re very similar to the ones you’d find at your neighborhood Starbucks.

I’m relatively new to the cake pop world, but in my opinion cake pops should actually be what they advertise to be- a nice fluffy cake inside with a bit of icing on the outside. Not my favorite thing, but tasty.

At first glance, this compressed cake sugar and frosting might not seem like the best thing to give to your kid. I’m not in the habit of jacking my kid up on sugary treats all the time, but I do make exceptions when we’re someplace special, like Disneyland, and you’ll have to make up your own mind as well. Most kids will jump at the chance for a bite or two of a Mickey Cake Pop, and the excess sugar in their system might make them more amenable to taking an afternoon nap.

Chief Envaluator Alex’s Opinion

Based on their size and relatively low-cost, I think the Mickey Cake Pops are close to a bargain, value-wise. You’ll definitely feel like you got your money’s worth when you treat doesn’t disappear after a few bites.

As far as theme and presentation goes, you couldn’t find a more purely Disney food item anywhere, and the sense of optimism and joy you’ll feel just carrying yours around is the perfect match for Main Street, USA.
