This Big Body Cinnamon Bun Is A Carb’d Up Dream

Clearly this cinnamon roll from Lodge Bread Company out in Culver City, California has got the concept of ‘go big or go home’ in order. For sure no one is headed home in this scenario the way their gargantuan cinnamon roll is out here just thriving, all big and what not.

As captured by @letmeeatcake, the cinnamon roll also boasts a lavish portion of fresh whipped labneh frosting just to make sure the leveled up status is secured.

Sure, this is a shareable portion, but are you really trying to break bread on this sweet occasion?

Cinnabon’s signature frosting will elevate practically any baked good you’re planning to make for the holidays, or if you’re anything like me, it will be utterly delicious paired with some black coffee and ruffled potato chips.

KFC Just Teamed Up With Cinnabon To Make Cinnamon Roll Biscuits

Normally when you go to KFC, your dessert options are pretty limited. There’s the standard chocolate cake and chocolate chip cookies, and maybe there’s a seasonal cake of some kind (like lemon) around. Outside of that, they haven’t innovated much in the dessert space. Until now, that is.

KFC has kickstarted their dessert innovation with a Cinnabon collab. These Cinnabon Biscuits are kind of like a cross between a cinnamon roll and a biscuit, only that the aromatic sugar filling is not rolled into the actual dough. Instead, there’s both a brown sugar cinnamon glaze and a cream cheese frosting drizzled on the outside of these biscuits.

Cinnabon Biscuits mark the first dessert item KFC has introduced in years. The last sweet treat to hit menus was cookies, which became a permanent item back in 2012.

These cinnamon sugar biscuits will be on the menu from April 29th through June 30th, or while supplies last. You’ll get a pack of four with any 10-piece meal or bigger order on the house, but can also purchase individual ones for a buck each or a pack of four for $3.

You Can Now Have A 5-Pound Cinnamon Roll Delivered To Your Door

Cinnamon rolls are one of the most comforting breakfasts out there. Since there can never be too many relaxing things in our lives, baking gift provider Wolferman’s is offering up a MASSIVE 5-pound version to comfort you and 40 of your closest friends.

5-pound cinnamon roll

The massive 80-ounce baked good is made in the traditional way, with heaps of cinnamon sugar wrapped around layers of dough. It also comes with a generous portion of cream cheese frosting that is more than enough to drench the roll.

Wolferman’s will ship the cinnamon roll to you cold, but it also comes with heating instructions. The pan it’s sent in is safe to use when heating up the roll in the oven or microwave. Those who use the latter thinking it’ll be faster should know that it takes several minutes to get the pastry piping hot, and it may not even fit into your microwave to begin with.

While Wolferman’s is definitely delivery on quantity, there’s plenty of quality to go around, too. The gargantuan cinnamon roll still has plenty of chew, flavor, and sweetness, and the cream cheese icing coats it to perfection.

A single 5-pound cinnamon roll costs $50 to ship and deliver. If you split that cost amongst the 40 people it can feed, though, it’s a pretty cost-effective way to nourish a crowd.

Wolferman’s didn’t just settle at a 5-pound behemoth, however. They actually went on to break the Guinness World Record for the largest cinnamon roll, at an astonishing 1,149 pounds! You can view the entire 9-foot-long treat in the photo above.

Sam’s Club Is Selling A MASSIVE 44-Ounce Cinnamon Roll For Under $5

Sam’s Club, aka Walmart’s version of Costco, is supersizing one of America’s favorite breakfast items with a brand new 44-ounce cinnamon roll that they just released in stores.

For those keeping track, 44 ounces translates to 2.75 total pounds of cinnamon, sugar, dough, and icing. That’s the equivalent of roughly 3 and a half full tubes, or 30 individual pieces, of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls. At Walmart, each of those packages costs about $2.18, so you’d think that this massive cinnamon roll would cost at least $7-$8, minimum.

However, a Sam’s Club representative has confirmed to Foodbeast that the 44-ounce Cinnamon Roll will only set you back $4.98. Considering that this can feed 10-14 people easily, that’s an insanely good deal for what would better be classified as a cinnamon roll cake.

You do need a Sam’s Club membership or a friend with one willing to help you out to get in on this mountain of a dessert. It’s also only available through the holiday season, so make sure to roll up to Walmart’s wholesale store before that period ends if you want this behemoth of a sugar rush.

Peeps’ New Holiday Flavors Taste Like Cinnamon Toast Crunch & Fudge [UNBOXING]

Peeps are the holiday candy that you either hate, or just kind of like, and with an array of new holiday flavors, we felt it was our duty to let you know how good or bad these little marshmallows taste.

The new lineup includes: Christmas Cookie flavor, Cinnamon Roll, and Sugar Plum Delights, all of which can at least try to get you in the holiday spirit.

In our Unboxing series, our own Elie Ayrouth and Rudy Chaney got hold of the holiday Peep gang, giving their off-the-cuff opinions on them.

The Sugar Plum Delights were first up, and apparently weren’t that great, to say the least. “They taste like cough syrup, with fudge on the bottom,” said Rudy.

The cinnamon roll Peeps apparently taste like like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, so you can’t hate too much on anything that taste like the world’s greatest cereal.

Elie said the sugar cookie Peeps seem to smell like vanilla soap, while Rudy was just stoked at the fudge dipped portion of the Peep.
