Star-Shaped Swirl Pops
Pretty and yummy
I bought these as an incentive for a reading program we call STAR. I normally don't use candy, but since they were star-shaped and had great reviews, I thought it would be fun. The kids absolutely LOVED them! They are a good size- even a bit larger than I expected. They taste really yummy and they are SO pretty. I bought 276 and only had about 12 that were somewhat "defective" which was actually better than I thought the ratio would be. They were packed very well with bubble wrap, but there were about 4 that arrived broken and then 3 more that cracked easily as I carefully unpacked them. Also, a few looked like they would break soon because they had a large fissure where the different colors swirled together. (I think that some breakage cannot be helped because of how the swirl has to be manufactured.) Additionally, a few were deformed so that one of the points of the star was much shorter than the others, but these were still usable and the kids probably didn't look carefully enough to notice it.

Really cute in person
The lollipops were bigger than I had expected which was nice. The only thing I didnt like about them was that they were difficult for the kids to open - several of them pulled the sucker off the stick attempting to remove the wrapper). Still, I would totally buy them again!

I loved them!!!!! I liked the size and the way they are packaged. I check them everyday because they are cute.
I was excited and anxious to get my products from oriental trading. The merchandise was well packaged and not one of my lollipops broke. Very very pleased. I loved the size.

Super cute lollipops
I bought a dozen of these pops for my daughter's last day of preschool...to hand out to her classmates as they say goodbye for the summer. Two arrived broken and there are 11 kids in her class (including her) so I needed a replacement pop. I used the Live Chat feature here on the website and the person I contacted was SO helpful! I am getting replacement pops this same week! I am very happy with my purchase and also with the customer service I have received.

Good Party Favor
I ordered these as "favors" for the young girls in my dance classes. They shipped promptly and were much bigger than I expected! I have not seen any cracked yet (we haven't opened all the boxes).
We haven't eaten any, so I don't know how they taste, but I think the girls will love them! They were ordered to go with the Old Testament Joseph & his coat of many colors (as well as the stars in his dreams).

Just a bad product...no flavor and broken
ORDER IN ADVANCE--COME IN BROKEN. had to get replacements...Got 2 dozen of these for my daughter's 3 birthday party with a circus theme. I thought they would be super cute and matched well with the d¿¿cor. I got the shipment in and 9 of them were crushed. I called and they happily agreed to overnight me another dozen to make up for the broken ones. The next day got the order in and 7 of them were broken. I called and they asked if I would like a refund for the product or to get another dozen resent. I chose to get another dozen sent since they were going to be part of the goodie bags. Got the next dozen in the next day and AGAIN most were broken but I was able to scrounge up the 24 that I needed. I don't know if it is at the warehouse or during shipment but this is just a bad product to get online without being able to pick them out and see if they are whole. The taste is bland...just has a slight sweetness to it...but the kids mostly enjoyed because of the colors and they could have candy, hahaa.

The picture is better than the product
You must check them right away! It took 3 shipments to get a complete set that were not broken. I also had some that were barely on the stick or lopsided and useless. I recommend ordering well in advanced of your party date so you can receive replacements in time if needed. I am glad I did or this review could have been worse. Customer service was very nice in helping with the replacements at first but will give you a hard time if they have to replace their broken product more that 3 times. I still have some cracks in the lolly pops (between colors) but they are holding together enough for me to use them.

Very nice and good size
I bought these star lollipops for my son's 1st birthday party cake but was disappointed that four out of the twelve were broken. Other than that, they are very appropriate and good size. Kids loved them.
