A TikToker is claiming that they bit into a Starbucks
cake pop with mold in it, and the sight has commenters
threatening to swear off the popular menu item.
User @teabezel28 uploaded the video on
May 2, which showed a half-eaten cake pop.
Beneath the pink frosting shell appeared to
be several bluish-green spots of mold, which
@teabezel28 joked were “not chocolate chips”.
The clarification was necessary,

thought the spots were Funfetti.
“Why was my mouth watering?” one commenter
asked. “I didn’t realize there was mold, BYE”.
There was no wrapping to prove that
this was, in fact, a Starbucks cake pop.
The video got so much traction on the platform
that the official Starbucks TikTok account
commented two days after @teabezel28 posted.
“We’re concerned and want to learn more so
we can make it right,” Starbucks commented,
adding their corporate number for contact
