Now That's What I Call A Cinnamon Roll!

Cinnamon Roll

Boy!  It was a sad state of affairs when I discovered this sugary, doughy goodness at my local home cookin’, hometown diner—a massively huge 6″ x 5″ x 2″ fresh, warm cinnamon roll that I personally asked to be drowned in a pound of frosting.  A sad state of affairs because I now have to have a cinnamon roll practically every day.  My car just won’t stop heading in that direction.

I mean, once you’ve had the best (of anything, for that matter—cars, furniture, clothes, food, spa services, men, and whatnot) it’s hard to go backwards in time to what you were getting before.  Like previously, every once in a while I’d buy a cinnamon roll from the cafeteria at my job when the mood hit.  Well, that won’t be happening anymore, people, since I discovered what a real cinnamon roll is supposed to look, feel, smell, and taste like.

In comparison, the cinnamon rolls in the work cafeteria are small, hard, and don’t taste anything like this yummy goodness.  And to imagine, I actually thought they were the bomb-diggity at one time only because I had no idea my hometown diner had much better ones.  So now when I peruse the baked goods at work, I can hardly look at the cinnamon rolls they look so pathetic.  I walk right on by because I know where the real deal is, baby.

So now I buy these fresh, soft, ginormous cinnamon rolls like clockwork, take them home, warm them in the microwave, and go to town with a side of freezing ice cold milk.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, try to locate a fresh, soft 6″ x 5″ x 2″ cinnamon roll in your neck of the woods and have them throw in a foot of frosting.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Never go back to less than the best once you discover something better out there.

  1. There used to have two shops selling cinnamon rolls in the city nearby. Their business went down because the sales were pretty slow. Apparently, most people in North Sumatra thought of cinnamon rolls as something “too exotic”.
    Every time I tell my friends that I miss the shop, and the cinnamon rolls actually tasted pretty good; they will say: “but Hari, you always have the weirdest taste in food! If you think it is delicious, it doesn’t mean that MOST OTHER PEOPLE do!”

    1. That is SO strange!! How is a cinnamon roll exotic?! Lol. I don’t get it. The business wouldn’t have went down if I was there. They would have had to hire more people just to keep up with MY demand. 😉

        That’s what I think! Maybe they are just not used to the taste. Besides, when the shops were operating, these local folks had not seen much “unusual breads” (which include cinnamon rolls, pita bread, etc).
