Can You Resist a Cinnabon?

Updated on August 29, 2015

Classic Cinnabons are the Best!

Sweet. Cinnamony. Gooey. Irresistible! When I go to the mall and see that Cinnabon stand, there's no resisting! You don't have to twist my arm. I'm there!

Cinnabon offers cinnamon rolls like no other! They are filled with rich gooey cinnamon and topped with a smooth whipped cream cheese frosting.

As if that's not enough, there's a few variations to the classic Cinnabon. They have Caramel Pecanbons, Minibons and Chocolate Covered Minibons. They are all exceptional but the classic will always be my favorite!

The Ultimate Mall Food

Cinnabon has been in our local mall for as long as I can remember. Years ago, I would hear people talk about them but I had never had one. I didn't know what all the fuss was about until one day, the freshly baked Cinnabons in the window happened to catch my eye. I decided to try one and boy was I glad I did!! Yummy stuff there!! That gooey cinnamony center is delicious. The cinnamon is loaded in there in gobs. And that frosting... I always get an extra little cup of it because it's so good. They whip up that cream cheese until it's nice and fluffy and light. Unbeatable!

The Frosting or the Bun? - I Love the Frosting!

As I sit there devouring my Cinnabon, I try to figure out which part I like better...the frosting or the bun. They are both filled with goodness! The bun is full of cinnamon gooey-ness and the frosting is sweet and creamy. They're both great but I have to say that frosting is my favorite.

What do you think makes it great?

You can't eat them but the smell of a Cinnabon candle will give you warm fuzzy feelings that will last until the next time you can get to the mall.

What Do You Think of Chillatas?

Frozen Drinks

I haven't tried a Chillata because I'm not a big fan of frozen drinks but they look really good on all the pics. There's a lot of flavors. The newest one is Chocolate Covered Cherry. It's cherry with chocolate swirl and it looks so good!! Have you had one yet?

Cinnabon Cinnamon Is In Lots of Good Foods!

You can find Cinnabon cinnamon in everything from oatmeal to syrup to coffee and everything in between.

This Cinnabon breakfast cereal is made by Kellogg's. It's like having mini cinnabons in every single bite!

 

Undercover Boss

Kat Cole, the President of Cinnabon, was on Undercover Boss. I always check to see which company they are doing on that episode and I was excited when I saw Cinnabon. I wasn't disappointed. It was a very touching show that had me in tears by the end. It was one of my favorite episodes of all.

It's Popping Up Everywhere!

I remember when the only place you could get that Cinnabon taste was from the Cinnabon at the mall but not anymore! Now they make tons of foods that are loaded with Cinnabon ingredients. One of the first logical places that I saw it was in Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls. That makes perfect sense. You get the yummy frosting and put it on the hot fresh rolls right out of the oven.

But then it started popping up in more foods! Little mini Cinnabon cereal for breakfast, oatmeal, even syrup. You can buy Cinnabon almonds and pecans. There's coffee, cake mixes, and loaves of cinnamon bread - all loaded with that special Cinnabon cinnamon.

It's all yummy and super delicious but nothing beats the genuine cinnamon roll!

Where does it come from?

True cinnamon comes from a tall evergreen tree is Sri Lanka. Cinnamon is taken from the inner bark of the tree.

Most cinnamon in the U.S. comes from a Cassia tree.

What's Better?

Cinnabons or Grandma's Homemade Cinnamon rolls?

      In diet foods which replace the sugar with lower food enegry substitutes, there is some controversy based around the possibility that the sugar substitutes used to replace sugar are themselves harmful. Thanks.Regards,

      Cinnabon - nothing says 'welcome home' like the smell of the Cinnabon at the airport - we love it!

      ICK! Mind the typo; "...kind of girl and *there is no way...."

    • RaidaMoon 4 years ago

      I tell you - they must put some kind of drug in those darn things. I'm not even a sweet-tooth kind of girl and there is absolutely no way that I can pass by a Cinnabon without risking an embarrassing drooling problem for the rest of my errands.

        My Grandma's! They rock!

      Cinnamon!!

      If you like to use cinnamon a lot, check out a few of these other items! There's been lots of research done lately that says cinnamon is good for us in more ways than one such as helping our memory.

      McCormick Cinnamon is a tried and true favorite of many! You can usually find this in my cabinet. I put cinnamon in lots of different things. When I was a kid, I would make cinnamon and sugar toast. It was so simple but I don't hear about people eating it very often anymore. I wonder why?

      Let me know what you think!
