Starbucks has launched a Petites range of bakery products this spring. It includes cake pops - small cake balls, dipped in chocolate, on a lollipop stick - in almond, rocky road and sparkle varieties; red velvet, and chocolate whoopie pies, a salted caramel pecan bar, and a raspberry white chocolate cake.

Starbucks is also offering multi-buy offers on the small treats. The eat-in prices are £1.55 for one, £1.45 each for between two and five treats, and £1.20 each for six items or more. Takeaway prices are £1.30, £1.20 and £1.00 each, respectively.

The Starbucks Petites range differs slightly from the US range, which comprises rocky road, tiramisu and birthday (vanilla cake and icing, dipped in pink chocolate) cake pops, whoopie pies, mini cupcakes - in carrot cake and peanut butter varieties - and lemon, and salty caramel ’sweet squares’.
