Season Premiere
Shark Tank Season 5
 With a name like Sweet Ballz, you best have some big balls to back it up if you're going on the Shark Tank Show. James McDonald is the man behind Sweet Ballz which makes some of the sweetest cake balls you have ever tasted. In fact McDonald's Ballz are so good they are already available in over 5000 stores.

According to the Sweet Balls website, they are available in over 4000 7-11 Stores which will certainly add a lot of credibility to the cake ball business. Adding an additional 1000 store is enough to sweeten this deal even further and possibly enough too get the Sharks to invest in this growing company.

But my question would be with already making thousands of sweet ballz on a daily basis, why are they not available online? If Shark Tank contestants can sell cakes and even ice cream online to coincide with their appearance, why can't you sell Cake Balls? Hard telling how much this will cost the bottom line in a missed opportunity after 7+ million people see the Sweet Balls on National TV. Who knows, maybe James will read this and still have enough time putting together a "Shark Tank Special" available online before Season 5 premiere begins.

Even if you can't  order Sweet Ballz online, if you live near a 7-11 Store then you'll have 3 choices to choose from. The Cake Balls come in Red Velvet, Cookies n Cream and Chocolate flavors and yes they do look delicious.

As most Shark Tank Fans already know, Daymond John has contacts established with 7-11 Stores resulting in several successful deals already completed. But if James McDonald's website is correct and a successful deal with 7-11 was already completed in March of this year, then Daymond most likely couldn't add any more value to the deal.

If I had to pick the most likely Shark to make a deal for the Sweet Cake Ballz Business, it would have to be Barbara Corcoran as she seems to be on a roll with successful food products she's invested in.

You also have to figure this episode is the very first time both Barbara Corcoran and Lori Greiner will be on the Shark Tank at the same time and a little cat fight is sure to break out somewhere in the season 5 premiere show. They have been holding back for years, waiting for a chance to finally go head-to-head competing against one another.

Will Barbara and Lori's first battle be over Sweet Ballz? LOL, it sounds like good reality TV to me and possibly a Great Deal for James McDonald and the Sweet Ballz Business!

Sweet Ballz Update:

What happened to SweetBallz after getting offers from all 5 of the Sharks and now seems to of disappeared? The website seems to have vanished off the Internet ever since they appeared on the Shark Tank. I can't find anything at this point what's going on, but hopefully, someone out there would like to fill us in on what happened.

New Update on what happened to the Sweetballz Business after the Shark Tank Posted Here:

    There are several companies that offers "sweet ballz" AKA "cake balls" on their websites...they are just too damn expensive!

    Even Star Bucks have jumped on the "CAKE BALL" wagon! They have the nerves to put a lolli-pop stick in their product and charge a whooping $1.50 for one "plain" commercial tasting Cake Ball! Hell, you can buy a quarter of a QUALITY, GOURMET cake and "ROLL" pieces of the cake into balls yourself! Additionally, the "recipe" for "CAKE BALLS...CAKE POPS"... are on YOUTUBE, in COOKBOOKS, Foodie Blogs, etc. The secret to a really tasty "CAKE BALL" really lies in the PRICING! It doesn't take a pastry artist or master chef to make something as "simple" as CAKE BALLS, seriously! If you ask any Granny...she'll more than likely tell you to bake your "favorite" cake, let it cool, crumble it up, add your most "favorite" frosting in a proper ratio to make the crumbs meld together (I.e. to form a ball or any shape you desire), slightly chill the balls or shapes, then dip or enrobe into a PREMIUM quality chocolate, let the cake balls firm/set "or" immediately decorate with sprinkles, jimmies, nuts, etc. "OR" drizzle with more milk, white, dark chocolate. BE creative...go crazy or be elegant with your presentation. NOTE: Our neighborhood bakery offers 4 golf ball-sized cake balls for $1.00 and they STILL make a sizeable PROFIT and they are quite delicious!
    Afterall, folks...when you get down to it...it's simply cake flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar (granulated & confectionery) & chocolate "OR" a "quality" box of cake mix & pre-made frosting! LOL
    If you are paying more than $0.25-.50 per "cake ball"...the SELLER saw you coming! Remember, they are getting most if not all the ingredients at cost/wholesale! NO "CAKE BALL" should cost that much money, ever! If it's really "decorated" by a pastry artist you can expect to pay $0.25-0.50 MORE. If it has "wedding or anniversary" d├ęcor on the Cake Ball" expect for the price to DOUBLLE! Meaning you will be expected to pay about $1.00 per cake ball. The reason behind paying so much for "1" lone cake ball is that you show appreciation for the craftsmanship, artistry that went into making it LOOK PRETTY!;-D But, if it's rather on the "plain" side...just try not to pay a hefty price for the cake balls 'cause you think you can't make them yourself. IT'S SO EASY...like cupcake & cookie making! If you are the type that just don't like baking....that's a different story. You deserve to REWARD yourself with that CAKE BALL that cost @$2.00-$3.00 each! But, don't ever complain about the COST of gas or a proper education (tuition). Evidently, you're the type that can AFFORD to shell out money very freely! LOL *P.S. This is very crucial I noticed that the company "CAKE BALLZ" have their product "sensibly & fairly" priced. They are offering "4" or "6" large cake balls for about $1.99! That's not too bad...considering that their "SWEET BALLZ" are decorated with "premium" chocolate drizzle and the flavor is excellent.
    If our local bakery went out of business "AND" I didn't feel like baking...I WOULD WITHOUT A DOUBT PURCHASE "SWEET BALLZ" WITHOUT HESITATION.
    I'm so elated to learn that McDonald is fair at the pricing and delivery of a quality tasting product. This is indeed, rare...in the commercial baking industry. If the "price & quality" is EXCELLENT...people will PURCHASE over and over again. :-D

      Dear Anonymous. You've obviously never made cake balls before or you wouldn't be complaining about the cost. They are EXTREMELY time consuming, far more work than baking and frosting a cake. We custom make and decorate all our cake pops for our customers and add personalized details to each. Each take an average of 15 minutes to make so selling for $2.50 - $3.00 a pop is not unreasonable.

    People complaining about the price while drinking their $5 Dutch Bros coffee??? Go to 7-Eleven, 4 Sweet Ballz for $1.99 and a 24oz coffee, with all the condiments, syrups and flavoring for $1.75!

    1. Too bad. Now you can order online, but at a cost of a dollar a ball!!!! No way! Guess I'll just have to bake a cake instead...... No 7-elevens near me :(
