      Care to share a more exact location?

      Thanks!

        The Carvel/Cinnabon shop at 450 Hackensack Ave (the Pathmark/Home Depot shopping center) is now certifed by kof-k.

          I wonder how it compares to the one in Mexico City.

            1. re: Kosher Critic

              after I've checked them both out I will let you know.

              1. re: tomby

                Now that I have tried both, the Hackensack version is quite similar to its Mexican cousin, differing in that it has tables as well as Carvel. The cinnabon bun itself is quite tasty and very rich though a bit gooey in the center. It seemed that the employees were still getting the hang of producing the five or so items that they sell. They are sold individually (warm) or in boxes for reheating at home. Novel, but I can't see eating too many (at least not in one day :)).

              Wow! Thanks for the info. I live in Teaneck, and didn't hear a word about it.

        2. I used to travel from Long Island to get kosher cinnabons but they are now selling hot kosher cinnabons in Cedarhurst at TLC

            What is TLC and where did you used to travel to? Are you speaking of Cinnabon brand or just big cinnamon rolls?

            1. re: queenscook

              hes either associated with this tlc place, or the owner, hes posted only twice, and both have been in connection t the tlc, the lite choice, place in cedarhurst

          2. There is also a kosher Carvel/Cinnabon location in Stamford, CT.

            1. I went to a Kosher Cinnabon in Sawgrass Mills Shopping Outlet in Florida. I thought the bun I ate was absolutely vile and completely undercooked in the centre. I wouldn't bother wasting my money or calories next time!

                I agree with Janette. Too sweet, too undercooked in the center. I love sweet things and I have to say "sickening" is the adjective most appropriate. But, hearty appetite to those of you who like that kind of stuff.

                1. re: cappucino

                  Agreed - much too sweet. But the Cinnabon here in Hackensack has something akin to Churros which were delicious!

              2. I went to TLC today and bought the Cinabon rolls....$3.75 EACH !! The icing definately wasn't what the mall stores have, it was thicker and it didn't seem freshly made though it tasted ok. Overall, it was the experience of eating something that had been 'forbidden" that made the experience acceptable.
