Great bread, excellent flavor. A little short on frosting. 8/10
Three things struck me when I first saw the Whole Foods take on a cinnamon roll:
- It’s huge
- The criss-crossed icing is elegant
- It’s surprisingly inexpensive
Thankfully, the taste lives up to the looks, too.
Nice bread. Not too dry, not too moist. Wonderful crust. Easily separable spirals. Great “furry” cinnamon/sugar layer between spirals.
Could have used just a bit more frosting, though I’ll concede that additional frosting might upset the wonderful balance of sweet and hearty already present.
- Lightly iced, but in a beautiful criss-cross pattern
- $1.99 + tax per roll (surprisingly inexpensive for “Whole Paycheck”!)
Where to get it:
3060 Excelsior Boulevard, Minneapolis, MN
(I must admit that I am unsure how consistent the Whole Foods cinnamon rolls are from store to store. If the stores in different areas offer rolls other than the one I’ve described here, please leave a comment and let me know. Thanks!)
