Cinnamon Swirl Nutpods Review

I Don’t Want None Unless You Got Buns Hun…well Nicki Minaj & Sir Mix-A-Lot…WE GOT THEM BUNS.

Before we get started quick shoutout to Jeff Bezos and Amazon for super fast delivery!

Ok now on to the review portion of the new flavor of Cinnamon Swirl Nutpods! I will share my thoughts on three criteria….smell, taste and froth ability.

So first smell…they smell like when you walk into the mall food court and you smell CinnaBon. They got the smell baked right in there….see what I did haha. Its a nice mix of cinnamon and bun. It does smell sweet and strong, hands down.

In terms of taste, I tried both in hot coffee and in iced coffee and truthfully I was underwhelmed. Don’t get me wrong, you can taste the cinnamon bun….but I’m not sure if I really like that in my coffee. With the first sip you taste the cinnamon but then at the end you taste the bun and the vanilla frosting. Its not bad, but I’m not over the moon about it. It made my coffee extra sweet, which for some that may be great since there is no sugar or sweetener. I just think my taste buds have evolved and I just can’t do the sweet sweet creamers anymore. I will also admit when it came to real deal coffee creamers I prefer the simpler flavors or flavors with chocolate.

Lastly, the cinnamon bun nutpods ability to froth is only a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. It froths, but its weak, similar to the Chocolate Orange where the foam is not a thick layer but rather just a like a bubble bath.

Overall the flavor is definitely innovative and interesting. Its smell is divine but the taste and the froth are just so so. I would say if in the olden days you like dessert-like coffee, then its worth a try. But if the idea of cinnamon bun in your coffee, from real creamer didn’t appeal to you then this flavor might not be worth trying.

I will probably not be repurchasing.

XOXO

Hi my name is Gabby, 26 and I work full-time as an accountant and I am in graduate school for my MBA part time. I have always been one busy bee, even before graduate school. Post-undergrad, I worked at a public accounting firm AND was studying for my CPA. My first year post grad, working crazy hours and trying to pass a beast of exam, took a toll on my body, my mental capacity and brain power. I started the Whole30 journey in January 2016 and fell in love with how I felt. But let me tell you it took some adjustments like setting aside time to meal prep and realizing I may not be able to a make a certain recipe because I just don't have the time due to studying or busy season. A lot has changed since then, I've switched jobs and passed my exam, but one thing stays consistent...I stilllove to cook efficiently. I've yearned all my life to have that "I am sexy" confidence and with healthy eating and exercise, I'm getting there. I started this blog to help others who are in a similar position as me, who want to become the best version of themselves but with realistic expectations. For the busy moms, for the students, and for overworked accountant, these are my stories and recipes on how to live a simple easy whole life.
