Giveaway: New Gourmet Cupcakes by Cinnabon ($20 GC) [CLOSED]

In the year 1985, "Cinnabon" started on a fast track towards becoming a word that few people could utter without salivating. I remember when the Cinnabon bakery first came to the mall in my hometown. I never paid much attention to cinnamon rolls before then, but these decadent cinnamon rolls made me sit up and take notice. I could smell them baking from halfway across the mall.

25 years later, throughout the month of February 2010, Cinnabon locations in 41 states will be adding new gourmet Cinnabon cupcakes to their menus. If you don't see them yet, be patient. They will be arrive soon.




Although I have not had the opportunity to try these new cupcakes for myself yet, I must say that they look as equally decadent as the infamous Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. The four varieties of cupcakes that will be available are Cinnamon Classic, Chocolate Passion, Vanilla Bliss, and 24-Carrot Cake. I bet that Chocolate Passion would taste delicious with a MochaLatta Chill!
