Gotta say right now – I am not a fan of Taco Bell. How many different ways can you throw ground meat in some sort of bun type thing, top it with lettuce and cheese, and expect it will bring people in day after day? Well, of course, they do. People love Taco Bell. I typically order the Doritos Locos Taco, so even though the meat is odd and the lettuce funky, I get the taste of Doritos – and face it, who doesn’t love Doritos?
So, when my husband pulled in to a new Taco Bell in our area, I wasn’t thrilled. Isn’t there a Wendy’s chili nearby? An Asian chicken salad from Chik-fil-a? Something other than ground beef topped with cheese and lettuce?
And there it was. The new Cinnabon Delights. Despite everything else unappealing on the menu, they had me at “Cinnabon”.
Because who doesn’t need a reward when they are suffering through ground beef tossed on a tortilla with cheese and lettuce? Or sour cream. Or tomato.
Warm and way lighter than they look, these little balls of delicious dough are rolled liberally in a cinnamon sugar blend, very much like the inside of a Cinnabon. But where’s the goopy icing? That may be the delightful part! As you bite into these delicious little morsels, you’ll find the warm, goopy, way too sweet but who cares because it’s delicious icing! Best part – you get four per order, so you can indulge in a tiny little sweet golf ball sized treat, then pass the bag off to your children, so you don’t turn into a big fat arse.
The one con to these sweet genius treats – eat them while they are warm. They get a little funky in texture – almost damp – when you let them cool off too much. Oh, and don’t eat them when they are too hot – I felt like Kramer on a Seinfeld episode while waving my hands at the burn on my tongue from my first bite into a piping hot Delight.
Price is about $1.50, and this makes a nice little dessert or snack. Or a replacement meal when your husband insists on his Taco Bell fix.
