Five Fun Facts About Cinnamon Buns
It’s National Cinnamon Bun Day on October 4th and we will take any opportunity we can to celebrate and post multiple mouth-watering photos of one of our favourite baked treats. We’ve pulled five fun facts about Cinnamon Buns, so have a seat, grab a bun and unwind.
1. At COBS Bread in Canada, we call them Cinnamon Buns, although our USA location calls them Cinnamon Rolls. In Denmark, however, they might be referenced as Cinnamon Snails. Um, no thanks – I’ll take ‘bun’ any day!
2. The best part of the Cinnamon Bun might just be the cream cheese icing. (Okay, that’s probably just me and a few other sugar-fiends.) But in Sweden, where it has been suggested the Cinnamon Bun originated, they are just topped with sugar.
3. Last year on Cinnamon Bun Day, we sold nearly 10,000 Cinnamon Buns – that’s a lot of Cinnamon!
4. While Cinnamon Buns might not be a health food per se, cinnamon spice contains manganese, dietary fibre, calcium, iron, and zinc – so, at least they have some health benefits!5. Fresh! Fresh! Fresh! We bake all our Cinnamon Buns from scratch, every single day. At the end of the day, all unsold products go to local charities in the community.
