Olivia's Cake Pop

Who doesn't love cake pops? Olivia's cake pops can be found in the Kitchener-Waterloo region at any Walmart and in the GTA at Walmart or Longos. Often it is difficult to find nut free cake pops as they are made in facilities or stored with other baked goods that contain nuts. For people with nut allergies finally finding a cake pop they can eat is exciting!
