I always drool over the Cinnabon stand when I pass through the mall. It is especially hard to resist when they bring a new batch out fresh from the oven. Luckily, just thinking about it being 800 calories is quite a turn off for me. Even if I split it with someone, that is still 400 calories which is a small meal for me. When I first saw this Cinnabon Cinnamon Crunch cereal, like many, I thought it must be JUST as unhealthy, but after reading many reviews of this, I gave it a try. For a cereal, this is not too bad. One cup (not the usual 3/4 cup) is 150 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber, 10 grams of sugar and 3 grams of protein. Best of all, it is sodium free and has 20 grams of whole grains per serving. Like most cereals, I eat them dry, but I’m sure it will be better in milk because the cereal itself is a little hard. These are very snackable and the unique Makara Cinnamon in these reminds me of the Cinnabon cinnamon roll I once had a LONG time ago. Can you believe that I’ve only had Cinnabon once in my entire life? The sugar in this cereal is from turbinado brown sugar, fruit juice concentrate and honey, so no high fructose corn syrup. For all you Cinnamon Puffins lovers out there, how does this Cinnabon Cinnamon cereal compare? Personally, I like
the cinnamon flavor in this cereal a lot better.
