HOLY SMOKES! Have you seen this stuff? Last weekend, it caught my (and the husband’s) eye. I almost immediately dismissed it when I saw the Cinnabon name. We all know the monstrosity that is Cinnabon, don’t we? I mean I LOVE me a Cinnabon. There really is nothing like it, but weighing it at 730 calories I’d rather eat 2 whole meals!!
Anyway I do what I always do, turned the box around to check out the nutritional information. I was pleasantly surprised to find a serving weighed in at only 150 calories, 1.5 g of fat and 3 g of fiber, Only 2.5 points! Not too SHABBY and that’s for 1 cup!
Then I saw this…
INGREDIENTS: WHOLE OAT FLOUR, WHOLE BROWN RICE FLOUR, TURBINADO BROWN SUGAR, FRUIT JUICE CONCENTRATE (PINEAPPLE, PEAR, APPLE, PEACH), WHEAT FLOUR, WHEAT STARCH, MAKARA® CINNAMON, HONEY, CANOLA OIL, NATURAL FLAVORS, CALCIUM CARBONATE.
WOW! Whole grain AND no high fructose corn syrup. Normally you look at the ingredient list for some “sugar” cereals and see a novel, it was nice to recognize, understand and be able to pronounce everything on this list.
So I guess you are wondering about the taste. It was good, VERY crunchy and held up in milk. If you wait it out it will start to get mushy and, honestly, I think I liked it better then that way! It had that almost soft Cinnabon texture in cereal form.
If you want to give it a try for yourself they have a coupon on their web site right now, not sure how long they are going to last.
P.S. DON’T do what I did and just grab the box to start munching. I swear I ate half the thing mindlessly while typing this up! I think I’m going to weigh out some servings and bring them to munch on at work. The toddler and I love it dry!
