The story you are about to read is true. The names have not been changed because, well… um… it’s me — and I’m guilty.
Guilty and addicted — completely — to a sweet little bun of cinnamon, hot and delicious, but until recently so difficult to grasp.
Yes, I have a Cinnabon addiction. It’s a family thing; my brother is similarly afflicted. When we first discovered Cinnabon it was in Rochester, Minn., visiting family members at the Mayo Clinic. From that time on, we would fight to be the one drive up to Rochester — ostensibly to care for family, but we both knew that we were really headed to the Cinnabon establishment there.
And then, a few years ago, a Cinnabon place came to Des Moines, but in truth I seldom get to Des Moines, once or twice a year, and then I’m usually on the wrong side of town. I did, however, once carry $24 worth of Cinnabons from the Atlanta International Airport back here to Iowa.
Homeland Security was set to respond in full gear to the brouhaha on Concourse D, but then they learned it was just me, jumping up and down in delight at discovering a little Cinnabon place right there in the airport.
I stocked up. A business colleague flying with me assumed that I would share, and didn’t buy any for herself. She assumed wrong. The two boxes containing $24 worth of Cinnabons fit neatly under my seat. I sneaked a bite here and there — surreptiously, of course — so as not to be coerced into sharing.
Now, delight of delights, we have Cinnabons available every day in Boone. It’s a dream come true.
With the opening of the city’s newest eatery on the south side near Highway 30, I can get Cinnabons every day. And if you haven’t tried them yet, oh, what you are missing. But you might want to get there before me.
And, of course, it’s terrific to have anoher dining selection in town. I paired my Cinnabons with a small cup of Burger King’s vanilla latte, and it was wonderful.
The full menu brings some flame-broiled goodness to town, and be sure and go inside. The décor is lively and refreshing, inviting you take your time with “fast food.”Burger King
