I have discovered that the cinnamon rolls vary from Whole Foods to Whole Foods. I suppose that isn’t surprising, given that they bake them on site, but still, it was a matter of changing an assumption. The one today comes from a Whole Foods in Denver; compare it to the Whole Foods roll I reviewed from Minnesota and you’ll see quite a bit of difference.
This is a very large bun. The bread is sweet with a nice texture: soft with a relatively open crumb. Similar to the innards of a properly baked yeast-leavened doughnut. I would have preferred cream cheese frosting, but the icing that is pleasant is well-executed and does not overwhelm the rest of the roll.
Overall, a good cinnamon bun. 8/10
