Vegan Products I Love: Cinnaholic

From time to time I like to talk about vegan products that make this lifestyle just a little bit better. One of my guilty pleasures in my omnivore days was Cinnabon. It was the kind of thing I only allowed myself to eat ever so rarely, and no, I don’t want to know how many calories are in one. I had lost all hope of ever enjoying a gooey, buttery, cinnamon-spicy treat again, until I found out about Cinnaholic.

Cinnaholic takes the cinnamon bun to a whole new level. It starts with a warm, soft, and chewy roll that tastes of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Then, it’s topped with a rich, creamy, finger-licking frosting. And here’s where it gets good. First, you get to choose what kind of frosting you want; my personal favorite is orange, but you can pick your poison with flavors like caramel, cream soda, and pumpkin spice. Then, you get to personalize your bun further with all kinds of toppings: almonds, strawberries, shredded coconut, and graham crackers are just a few of the delights you can choose from. This is no ordinary vegan treat.

But, the best part of Cinnaholic is husband and wife team, Florian Radke and Shannon Michelle Radke. Shannon personally prepares your cinnamon bun, while Florian handles everything else. It all comes together to make you feel like you’re hanging out in their kitchen, chatting with the best friends you’ve never met. Cinnaholic, and all its charms, is surely a Berkeley institution in the making. Check it out the next time you’re in Berkeley, or order a dozen for your friends and family!
