It seems America’s favorite sandwich cookie is back with another flavor. They’re kicking off 2016 with a brand new flavor for your tastebuds – Cinnamon Bun!

If you’re like me, then it takes the power of God to hold me back from buying Cinnabon’s rolls when I’m in the mall. Why do they have to smell so good and be so bad for you? At any rate, I’m not sure just how much this new flavor is going to excite the masses.

The new flavor was spotted a while ago. But, now, it should be pretty available all over the country. The 12.2 ounce package retails for a mere $4.49.

The staff did a bit of scouring around to see what the feedback has been regarding the new sweet treat’s flavor. Here’s what we were able to find:

Holy crap, these taste like real cinnamon buns! They are perfect. And the filling is creamier (very cinnamon bun topping–like) than regular Oreos. Not too sweet, not too cinnamon-y. Would eat several in one sitting, A+, etc.

I would inhale these. They taste like Teddy Grahams dipped in that Dunkaroo cream. ‘Cinnamon Bun’ makes me feel like it should be ~warm~ so I kinda want to pop this in the microwave to see what happens.

After taking a whiff of the aroma pouring out from the cookie, I knew I was in for a treat. A literal treat and also a metaphorical treat. With my first bite, I was like, “Wow, this is good.” The second bite was just as good. The cream inside is delicate and flavorful with notes of cinnamon, vanilla, and just frosting stuff. Would eat again.


Wait: Some people thought they were just OK:

My hopes were very high, and that is why I am so hurt. There was not nearly enough cinnamon bun taste in this Cinnamon Bun Oreo. It was, at best, a vanilla Oreo with a dash of cinnamon. Only time can heal this wound.

I was immediately excited because the cookie smells like the French Vanilla Yankee Candle car freshener I used to have in high school. It sounds weird, but this is actually a good thing. I always wanted to eat the smell of that air freshener. Taste-wise, it doesn’t quite nail the smell, but it’s definitely a more sugary, sweeter Oreo. If you have a glass of milk you need to destroy but you’re not sure how to make yourself thirsty enough, this cookie could be helpful. But I can’t imagine having more than one.

I’d rather have a regular Oreo or a regular cinnamon bun, but if someone offered me these, would I turn them down? Absolutely not.

What do you think? Have you had the cookies? Are you ready to give them a try?
