Christmas in October at Cinnabon

Hello guys and gals! The past weekend was pretty hectic for me, with no time to sit back, relax, and watch the world zoom by. I’m glad that’s over and done with, today is the start of another exciting workweek (yay?). Anyway, I checked the calendar today and saw that Christmas is only 74 days away. That’s too soon! I have much love for the coming holidays but I can’t say I’m excited for the hustle and bustle that usually comes with it. I’m getting a headache just thinking about the packed stores and the insanely long queues.

Before you think that I’m such a Scrooge (I’m not, I promise I’m not!), let me say that while I am dreading the Christmas rush, I am looking forward to all the glorious Christmas nomz! When it gets frantic, if there’s one thing that can make me stop grumbling, it’s Christmas nomz. One of the smells that I associate with Santa season is the smell of cinnamon. Along with chestnuts, fruitcake, turkey, and leche flan, the smell of cinnamon always cheers me up and takes me to happyland.

This is why I am grateful for Cinnabon and their cinnamon rolls. Give me one Cinnabon Classic and I’ll be happy for the rest of the week. Cinnabon rolls are made of freshly rolled dough generously lathered with flavoring and toppings and then baked to perfection. It’s soft, chewy, and delightfully tasty. Almost perfect.

It’s biggest (and imo, only) drawback is its unhealthiness. It’s tasty for a reason. One Classic Cinnabon roll has a whopping 813 calories. That’s equivalent to two Double Cheeseburgers from McDonald’s! The roll has a total of 32g of fat (49% of the recommended daily value), 67mg of cholesterol (22% of recommended daily value), and 801mg of sodium (33% of the recommended daily value). Without a doubt, the numbers for the bad stuff are a bit too high for a small snack. It’s definitely not something for everyday nomming, it’s a treat and it’s delicious- we’ll leave it at that.

To make up for the stress of Christmas, most people forego their year-long diets and just worry about it the year after. When things get unmanageable, sit back, relax, treat yourself to Cinnabon cinnamon rolls and have a taste of Christmas any time of the year.
