Are there any virgins left? Many have done it. They’ve all had a piece. But this is my first time.
I just ate a slice of Cinnabon Cinnamon Bread!
I’m a lame-o for not knowing about this. It’s been around a long while, but was apparently hidden under a cloak of invisibility for people like me who swore a blind oath to Pepperidge Farms Brown Sugar Cinnamon Swirl. Both brands have the same cool cinnamon swirls and splash of brown sugar, but Cinnabon’s version is way softer (including the end pieces), thicker, and has cool “cinnamon bursts” – pockets embedded in the bread where extra cinnamon hangs out for a smack-me-in-the-face blast of flavor. I don’t agree with the marketing that it’s reminiscent of a Cinnabon Roll – that’s going a bit too far – but it’s good and I’m buying more.
If your calorie counter will allow a brief Greedy Island experience, pop this bread into the toaster and smather it with butter. It’ll be warm and crisp on the outside, yet maintain a slightly soft center due to its thickness. Unless, of course, you toast the hell out of it.
I bet this stuff is perfect for French Toast, but I wouldn’t know firsthand because my hungry spawns kids annihilated the entire loaf in less than 24 hours. What else is new?
