Fast-food cinnamon rolls

I haven't had one in years, but I used to love them.  Often at airports they were the best thing on offer.  But I haven't traveled by air or frequented malls in the last 2 years, so I don't know if they are still as good.  I need to have one, though, because I think they are the best "fast food" ones and even better than most bakeries.

In an enclosed space like a shopping mall or airport I think it is the smell that draws you in and sets your tastebuds up for great expectations. Plus they are large, soft, pillowy - so comfort food. I have never purchased one - just pinched a taste off the kid's. There is a "world's first" Cinnabon food truck in Los Angeles! I'd give one of the copycat recipes a try.

For me they tend to be overwhelming in terms of size. 
 

  I have never claimed to be a classy eater. Taco Bell has a partnership with Cinnabon. They have these munchkin size little donuts with the icing in the middle. They are complete trash but they are really good. 
 

isn’t there a thread about PMS? Because I see cinnamon sugar donuts filled with the trashy icing in my near future!

I've never had an actual Cinnabon and the size is part of the reason.  When I was working at UCLA, there was a Cinnabon-like place called TJ Cinnamons right around the corner from our building and whoever was in charge of getting meeting treats often picked up a tray of the little one-bite buns.  They were so sweet that one bite was plenty for me.

If the cinnabon is too big you can always reheat leftovers. I find that reheating make the bread super soft and chewy.

The CSO, if you have one, on Bake/Steam is good for this.  

I just use a regular microwave to reheat. Works great every time.

That is why it gets chewy

I never even heard of Cinnabon until Better Call Saul. Plus I've never seen one in northern CA, not that I've looked. But now if I saw one I don't think I would try it because the image of Jimmy McGill working there makes me so sad.

I LOVE Better Call Saul!  What a magnificent cast.  Sorry to see it come to an end.

The writers who created 'Mike' and 'Nacho' and 'Charles', as well as 'Slippin' Jimmy' just blow me away!!!

Strange thing with the cinnabon: I like it and do not at the same time. This soo sweet, and it is good and bad... have another piece to make sure I don't like but can't stop...
