I’m not a fan of cinnamon, except in cakes and coffee so I’ve had this bar of Sticky Cinnamon Bun for ages and kept putting off warming it. This week I gave in to the guilt trip every time I looked at it and decided to open it, not least because I have so many bars I want to use and enjoy before getting to my new ones!
I was very pleasantly surprised. Yes it is cinnamony but not that hit you between the eyes kind of strong, overwhelming cinnamon. You can smell vanilla and the pastry underneath. It’s really very nice and gave me a hankering for a cinnamon bun; specifically the ones available in the past from London’s Southbank Christmas Market. I’ve yet to satisfy this craving, so will just have to make do with the calorie free alternative warming in my living room for now!
