Trader Joe’s New Cinnamon Bun Cookies Just Landed On Our Radar

I love cinnamon buns as much as the next guy, but the dessert roll is so rich sometimes its tough to finish a single one, even if you started your attempt with a massive craving.

Trader Joe’s has found a way to capture the essence of the lauded cinnamon bun and package it into something a little more snackable.

Junk Banter discovered these new Cinnamon Bun Cookies sold at their local Trader Joe’s and trust our interest is piqued.

The snacks are described as soft baked cinnamon and brown sugar cookies that sandwich together with a cinnamon bun-flavored creme filling.

It looks like Trader Joe’s checked off all the boxes for a proper cinnamon bun snack, though Junk Banter says they went a little too heavy on the spices and chewiness. You can find these at your local Trader Joe’s snack aisle and give them a try for yourselves.

With the holidays coming up, we’re looking for any sense of familiarity and comfort with the state the world is currently in. Between you and me, nothing’s more comforting than a mouthful of cookie dough.

Ben & Jerry’s has released two new seasonal flavors ahead of the holiday season in the form of Cinnamon Bun Cookie Dough Chunks and Gingerbread Cookie Dough Chunks.

Made with pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour, the cookie dough bites are safe to eat and ready to go from bag to mouth. The idea behind the Cinnamon Bun and Gingerbread releases was to evoke nostalgia for the holidays and bring you back to a magical time in your life.

The new flavors launching join Ben & Jerry’s existing lineup, which includes Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Half Baked.

You can find Cinnamon Bun Cookie Dough and Gingerbread Cookie Dough at supermarket retailers now nationwide or buy them at Ben & Jerry’s online store.

Nabisco Drops A Flavor Bomb With Their New Filled Cupcake Oreos

Looks like Oreo doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon as evidenced by their second newest cookie in less than a month after the Cinnamon Bun Oreos: the Filled Cupcake Oreos.

This newest addition to the twist-and-lick family is another dream-turned-reality thanks to the nostalgic minds over at Nabisco.

The new Oreo features the well established chocolate cookie wafers with a sweet chocolate filling instead of the customary sweet creme, then a bit of vanilla creme in the middle.

Oreo also recently made their Red Velvet Oreos a staple, solidifying their spot on the shelves in your local market. However, according to the team over at Huff Post, this new cookie tastes eerily similar to Nabisco’s Chocolate Oreos, which are virtually the same thing, only these ones have a drop of vanilla no larger than a dime in them.

These delicious new delectables hit shelves February 8th.

Starbucks-Vday-Custom-Drinks

One bored Starbuck’s barista made these beautiful Frappuccinos, and we can’t thank him enough! These fun-to-look-at beverages come in Love Bean, Valentine and Java Bean flavors. Nothing says “I love you” to a loved one more than a colorful Frappuccino.

2. Cinnamon Bun Oreos

Cinnamon-Bun-Oreos-07

Oreo blew our minds this week with their new Cinnamon Bun Oreo flavor. Admittedly, those colors look funky coming out of an Oreo package, but we know not to judge a cookie by its cover. These bad boys are about to take our taste buds for a joyride.

3. Trader Joe’s Mini Sugar Churros

Everybody loves a good churro, but nobody goes crazy for all the preservatives and other junk found in them. So Trader Joe’s went out and worked tirelessly to bring these mouth-watering bite-sized treats to the front of the line, and nobody is mad about it.

Canada To Finally Get Bacon Poutine-Flavored Potato Chips

canadiachips

We were so surprised not to see this flavor in the running for last year’s Lay’s Do Us A Flavor Canada edition, but we’re happy to report all has been set right in the world. That’s right, Canada is finally getting poutine-flavored potato chips.

From tomorrow through October, chip-munching Canadians will get to vote between four new crowdsourced flavors for this year’s Lay’s Do Us A Flavor contest, and they’re pretty much as diverse as ours. Jalapeño Mac’N’Cheese, Tzatziki, Cinnamon Bun, and Bacon Poutine all make an appearance, with the mac and tzatziki flavors available in the special textures of wavy and kettle-cooked, respectively.

Perhaps we might be able to make some sort of arrangement with our Canadian readers, one bag of Bacon Poutine for one of Wasabi Ginger? Whaddya say, eh?

The Death of the Cinnamon Roll? Denmark Faces EU Ban on Spice

cinnamon-ban

This could very well be the last time Denmark sees cinnamon rolls for a while as a ban is threatening to take them away from the Danish. Well at least the cinnamon part, but then you’d just have sweet rolls.

The recent European Union ban on kanelsnegler, also known as cinnamon rolls, is aimed at limiting coumarin amounts in food products. Coumarin is a naturally-occurring toxic chemical found in the most common type of cinnamon, according to the Telegraph. The amount of cinnamon found in “everyday fine baked goods,” under Danish interpretation of the European Union legislation, will have a limitation of 15mg per kilo. This means Kanelsnegler pastries, and other products made with more than the allotted 15mg per kilo, will be facing a ban in the near future.

Danish bakers have reacted to this news with fury as their Swedish neighbors have found a way to save their pastries, kanenbullar, by categorizing them as a traditional and seasonal dish with an allowed cinnamon level more than three times higher at 50mg per kilo.

“It’s the end of the cinnamon roll as we know it,” lamented Hardy Christensen, the head of the Danish Baker’s Association.

We wish our Danish brothers all of our support and condolences, as we too know what it’s like to recently lose something that we love so dearly. Even more than once.
