Carvel Slice Mmms Cinnabon Ice Cream Roll
from Freezer Burns

Happy (belated) Birthday to Greg over at Freezer Burns! He's picked himself up a special frozen treat for his birthday.


This treat is artificially flavored vanilla ice cream with Cinnabon Makara cinnamon swirls, sweet cream cheese frosting, cinnamon cake pieces and rolled in vanilla crunchies. To find out more about this tasty treat, head on over to his video review.

Note: While I've never seen this product, it's apparently been around since late 2006 --- though as a slightly larger Carvelog. Check out the old press release.

We bought one of those when we first saw it. While my partner and I are honestly dedicated Carvel fans, having grown up with one in the neighborhood, we *both* found the Cinnabon roll overtly sweet, and honestly, rather nasty. It is overwhelmingly cinnamon and so very sweet that even 3 bites was too much. The frosting was cloying and claggy in texture.

Obviously your mileage may vary, but if you really have a hankering for Carvel in roll format, try the Strawberries and vanilla version, or the classic Van/Chocolate one-- both of those are amazingly good.

I've tried other Cinnabon branded products in the past (breakfast bars and cereal), and I have been anything but impressed. I am/was hoping this would be better than that.
