Starbucks - (Red Velvet Whoopie Pie) - NY

Pin It Now!

Peering into the Starbucks dessert case - the red velvet whoopie pies look like happy clams!

Stopping into Starbucks to get my usual grande drip black coffee, I saw a new addition to the starbucks sweet treats.  Red velvet whoompie pie was an interesting take on the red velvet craze that seemed to be sweeping the nation.  (Whoopie pie is a baked good that consists of a gob of cream filing sandwiched between two cookies or cakes).  I had already been a devotee of all things red velvet so of course it was a must try.

The "cake" part of this dessert was very spongy and soft.  Not much of the slightly chocolate flavor of a true red velvet cake.  Also, the cream was too sweet for my taste - didn't taste like the usual cream cheese filling.  I'm glad I satisfied my curiousity, but not a reorder for me. 

Verdict:                     Cute idea, but the taste was too artificial for my liking.
