Cinnabon Caramel Pecan Ooey-Gooey Rolls Review

Cinnabon Caramel Pecan Ooey-Gooey Buns

As huge fans of breakfast foods (and as people with insatiable sweet tooths… sweet teeth?), we’re really excited about Cinnabon’s line of frozen treats. Now we can get that tasty Cinnabon flavor without having to navigate the crowded food court at our local mall. And that’s quite something!

We recently tried (and adored) the Frosting Filled CinnaPastry, and now we’re digging even deeper the line with the Cinnabon Caramel Pecan Ooey-Gooey Rolls. We give that name a thumbs up, so we’re already off to a good start!

These come two in a box, though each one is individually wrapped and placed inside a tray. Simply remove the wrap, then pop the cinnamon roll in to the microwave for 45 seconds to a minute. We found a minute to be perfect here.

Now, it’s a good thing these come inside a little tray, because they’re absolutely loaded with caramel. These would be a real mess without this caramel-catching tray. The instructions say to flip the tray over and serve the roll on a plate, but we decided to keep ours in the tray and eat it that way (as shown in the image above). This means our caramel and pecans ended up on the bottom rather than the top, but this didn’t impact our enjoyment of these cinnamon rolls at all.

In fact, these are incredible. The cinnamon roll itself is warm and soft, and loaded with cinnamon flavor. There’s a boatload of caramel here, to really sweeten the pot, and the pecans end up crunchy yet a little soft, so they don’t end up breaking into mouth-shredding shards. We really couldn’t ask for better cinnamon rolls.

Since we had two cinnamon rolls, we allowed two of our staffers to try them. One person thought these were better than the Frosting Filled CinnaPastries, while the other thought the CinnaPastries were better. But both reviewers agreed on the fact that Cinnabon really knocked it out of the park with their frozen pastry line.

As you may have already guessed, these are not designed for dieters. A single roll contains 510 calories and 580 mg of sodium. You probably won’t want to make these a regular part of your breakfast rotation.

The Cinnabon Caramel Pecan Ooey-Gooey Rolls are heavenly. Soft and warm and filled with all the ooey-gooey caramel promised on the box, these will satisfy a sweet tooth and then some. Just don’t eat these every day, because they’re shockingly high in calories.
