I love these things.

Fuck they are good.

I just needed to get that off my chest.

Thank you for listening.

    1. Cinnamon is my favorite spice and flavor and everything always cinnamon... but I just don't want to even try it. I am basically 5 feet and a half a centimeter.. there isn't room/space to store that thing.

          Won't that still clog my baby-sized heart?

      2. Gosh ipse, you sound weak in the knees. The smell wafting through some airports is quite luring. Oh, they gota be hot out of the oven.

        1. I'm torn.

          I'm pretty sure that I'm in the minority in that the scent of cinnamon actually makes me nauseous, so i hate walking past the Cinnabon in my local mall.
          BUT the scent of the baking dough and pastry that emanates from there is SO delicious!
          Let's just say that it's an odd feeling to have a churning stomach but with a watering mouth at the same time.

                as far as dirty sweets go, i'm with you on the cinnabon. and as far as dirty sweets from swedish box stores, it's a winner.

              1. PS. Ipse, you might want to try this concoction.. it is like a cinnamon bun died on a tub of caramel corn..

                  That reminds me, I think someone actually made and was selling a Cinnabon bread pudding.

                  My teeth aches a little just typing those words in conjunction.

                    Ah, come to Durham, NC, where one of the local restaurants do bread pudding made with Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Yes, your teeth might ache, and you'll probably need an insulin chaser. But, it is very fine.....
