Cinnabon Snack Bars

July 22nd, 2009

This is a compensated post through my relationship with Mom Central.

dsc00097I received this box of Kellog’s Cinnabon Snack Bars in the mail last Friday. I didn’t even take this box out of the cardbooard box it arrived in before tasting one of these bars. You see, I adore Cinnabons. Love. But I accidentally found out how many calories are in a Cinnabon and I haven’t been able to eat one since. I have been known to make the Pilsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls with the Cinnabon stuff in them. I like them but they aren’t exactly waist friendly and your family has to finish the pan that morning because they aren’t very good the next day. So when these Cinnabon Snack Bars arrived with a much less button-popping calorie count of 150 per bar, I was excited to try them.

Let me disclose that I dislike cereal bars – you know those fruit filled ones? Not a fan. My husband and daughter love them so I figured if these bars were like those, I could get them to eat them and give me their thoughts. They weren’t like the cereal bars. Yum.

dsc00102They are about 4 bites which is perfect because they are very sweet. Those 4 bites are like the best for bites of a cinnamon bun – the middle. If you stick them in the microwave for 5 seconds (without the wrapper please), they are a little warm and gooey and full of that cinnamon and brown sugar that is at the center of the best cinnamon rolls. Now don’t get me wrong, these are bars out of a box and are 150 calories – they can’t compete with a warm from the oven 4 digit calorie cinnamon bun. But, for me, they satisfy that yen that I occasionally get for something like that. They are quite sweet so it isn’t a breakfast thing for me – more of a once in awhile treat when I really want something rather decadent.

I saw Kellog’s Cinnabon Snack Bars on an end cap near the registers at Target yesterday on sale for $1.79. Go get yourself a treat!

    THANK YOU FOR THIS! My husband and I were both lusting over Cinnabon last night, and bemoaning the horrific caloric properties of the YUMMINESS OF THEM. I totally also make the Pillsbury rolls. These are a GODSEND!

    I laughed when I read the part about you accidentally finding out how many calories are in a Cinnabon. I love the milkshakes at Culver’s and I heard a rumor that they had a ridiculous amount of calories. I don’t have them very often, but if I ever heard the actual number I’m sure it would ruin it for me. If anyone starts talking about it I just cover my ears and say, “PLEASE – I DON’T WANT TO KNOW!”

    Ive been tempted by these as well.
    although methinks I may try and then need to beg to differ if something is very sweet the fact they are 4 bites seems a negative 😉

    Cole loves these things but honestly I don’t. I think they have a strange taste.
