Things I Love Thursday- Cinnabon Snack Bars

tilt  Has anyone else noticed that 90% of my Things I Love Thursday posts are dedicated to food? There may be some sort of addiction that I need to get looked at. But then again, when Mom Central asks you if you would like to review the new Cinnabon Snack Bars, what kind of sane pregnant woman says no? Not this one!!

When I say Cinnabon, can’t you just smell it? Those cinnamon rolls had me at hello. And some brilliant person decided to turn it into a bar. A bar with cinnamon, sugar and CREAM SUGAR FROSTING!! Now let me be straight with you. These are a dessert bar masquerading as a snack bar. And although the calorie count is pretty good for a snack (150 calories per bar), these are not a health food. But that being said, they are delicious. It was definitely hard to stop at just one and I caught my kids trying to sneak them more than once.

Now, you could reach in the box, grab a bar and go to town. But you would be missing a very important step. These babies are amazing warm out of the microwave. The box says to heat them for 3 seconds, but I say they are better left in a bit longer. But I don’t want a lawsuit on my hands for telling you to make them hotter than the recommended limit. We don’t need a “this coffee is too hot even though coffee is supposed to be hot” thing going on. Take pity on the pregnant woman who just thinks we all need a warm cinnamon roll pick me up in the middle of the day.

I have seen a lot of coupons and sales for these lately so definitely go check out a box. You might want to keep them away from the kids and the hubby. Forget the might, put these on a shelf where no one can find them. They are the perfect reward to those, “I just survived another day at home with me kids” kind of days.

Let’s bring back the Things I Love Carnival with a vengeance this week. Here is the thing: the only way this carnival is going to grow and increase your traffic is if you link back to this site and then hop around via Mr. Linky and visit each other, so please do so. I love finding out what you all love, but I also want us all to benefit from each other. If you need any other tips to post your TILT, head over here.


  1. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    Mmmm…those sound great! I saw them at the store and wondered how they are. I will probably have to try them now:)

  3. Ahhhhhh Jill you’re killing me. I’ve seen the coupons for these, but have been good about resisting because I have so many snack bars that I already love, but now feel compelled to try these.

    I know what you mean about always having food for TILT. I actually did a non-food post today, but I’m sure I’ll have a new food find for next week.

  4. I’m going to pretend like I never heard of these things. Mm-hm. That’s right.

    And don’t feel bad about the food – my entry today is about food. It’s fun to talk about food! :)

  5. Mmmm, sounds yummy. I’ll have to get a box and hide them immediately. I’m always hiding food in my house. It’s the only way to make things last.

  6. Okay…don’t laugh. I wanted to leave a comment here earlier before I posted on my blog, but I couldn’t for the life of me find the comment section! I totally overlooked it.

    I haven’t tried the Cinnabon bars, but they sound absolutely divine and something right up my hubby’s alley! And mine and the three year old’s and the 1 year old’s too. Ha ha! Don’t worry! I won’t leave just because you’re not a coffee drinker…sometimes I wish I wasn’t. Glad to have found you!
