Cinnabon Horror

November 22nd, 2007 · 7 Comments


Another in the theme of ‘how do people eat these things?” I got a coffee and a Cinnabon in O’Hare. Believe it or not, this was my first one. I couldn’t get through half of it. I think I figured out the recipe: Take 30 cinnamon scented car fresheners, boil them into a paste, add all of the strongest sweetners known to man, form into a spiral, and cover with weapons grade high fructose corn syrup icing.

    I believe that your theory also explains the formation of the Hawaiian Island chain.

    When I was 12 or 13 I remember sharing a Cinnabon at San Diego Int’l with my father and it was the best cinnamon roll I had had in my life to that point. I still seem to buy one at least two or three times a year hoping to find that first one that I ever tried. Alas, they now fit your description better than the one in my memory. My love affair with Cinnabon is over, but don’t worry, we’ll always have San Diego.

    Eww!!! They really use high fructose corn syrup?
    Thanks for the warning. We like to make our own cinnamon rolls. :)

    Enjoy your blog and appreciate the Chicago food resources as I’m researching for a trip. Yours are the best Chicago links I’ve found so far. And thanks for the great food blog list! I have a chocolate blog

    Cinnabon is death. Not to mention the fact that if you don’t eat it within the first 2 seconds after its served, it gets cold and then it just tastes like sugar coated, cinnamon scented cardboard.

    not ok.

    Oh my goodness…I have not had a Cinnabon in the longest time. I used to work in a mall just shops down from Cinnabon – and every week I would treat myself to a freshly baked one. They may be super sweet, to the point of aggressive tooth decay, but I do love them so!

    Cinnabon is king
