1 of 1 people found the following review helpfulApril 27, 2008Reviewer: Melissa in Pennsylvania* These were a bit time-consuming to make, but I'm sure that is the case with all cinnamon rolls: you have to make the icing and the cinnamon filling, on top of rolling the entire confection and cutting it evenly--it's all pretty standard, so one shouldn't complain. It all was well worth it.
The texture of the roll was a bit more crumbly and soft than regular cinnamon rolls--it doesn't really have a "sink-your-teeth-into-feel" but definitely a "buttery, melt-in-your-mouth-feel" however.
The cinnamon filling was great, but the icing was a) not quite sweet enough (but not a problem if you have tons of erythritol around, which is what I added after discovering this) and b) was made primarily of butter and thus melted and sunk into the bun, lessening the intensity of the icing's taste, when heated it in the microwave. Overall though...
If you are looking for a low carb substitute (and don't mind these minute imperfections) for an old, high carb favorite, this cinnamon bun mix is for you--you certainly won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
