Legendary Cinnamon Protein Sweet Roll

I discovered these sweet rolls at my local Price Chopper grocery store the other day, and just had to give them a try.  I have to admit that I was a tad bit skeptical about them at first, but with zero added sugar, 20 grams of protein, and only 5 net grams of carbs it was a gamble worth taking. Needless to say, I was pleased with this product.

Hmm, all that white icing glaze makes the roll almost look fake in the above picture…

These protein sweet rolls look as if the roll portion itself might be a little bit on the dry side, but it really wasn’t. The picture doesn’t do the roll portion justice, but you can see the cinnamon goodness rolled up inside pretty good.

Upon the first bite into this roll, I found the roll to be slightly chewy, and that it had a nice flavor that is almost like that of any other packaged cinnamon roll you might buy at a convenience store. If I were to compare the flavor to anything that I have enjoyed in the past when I was still consuming sugar, it reminded me a lot of a Honey Bun with just the right amount of cinnamon for my taste. If you have a sweet craving, but you are still trying to remain within your target macros, this product will be something you might want to try.

Hint: If you microwave them for 15 to 20 seconds, they are even better!

With 5 grams net carbs, and 0 grams added sugar, these protein rolls are not going to have an impact on your blood sugar.

Nutritional Information

Everything in the nutrition facts is good. With 9 grams of fiber, these rolls will satiate a hunger despite their somewhat small size.  The bottom line is, you will probably not want to gorge out on these protein rolls.

Full disclosure, as a rule, I normally do not consume very many processed foods. However, when in a pinch away from home, there are almost always better alternatives to most of the junk foods sold at every convenience store in America.  Yes, as you can see. there are a lot of ingredients contained in these protein sweet rolls. However, with that being said, there is nothing within this product which will harm you no matter what your Aunt Gladys might have told you…
