My favourite thing about being in shopping malls in America, was always the intoxicatingly seductive scent of Cinnamon goodness that hypnotises you from the minute you walk through the doors. You cannot help but be drawn to it, hunt it down, seek it out... like a rabid dog chasing its prey... you have to have it. As soon as i see the sign, my heart rate increases and what started as walking, quickly becomes running. And there it is, 'Cinnabon'... with its cinnamon-laden bounty, teasing you from a distance. A closer look reveals assorted buns (similar in appearance to the British Chelsea bun) available in both large buns and mini buns (or mini-bons to be precise) glistening with sticky sweet goodness in plain cinnamon, chocolate-cinammon or maple pecan flavour. Other goodies available include home-bake bun packs, as well as cinnamon twists and lashings of cream cheese frosting in little tubs.
The good news is that they are absolutely heavenly. The bad news is that the large buns are over 1,500 calories each and they are completely addictive. More bad news is that they are now here in London! The first branch popped up in Oxford Circus, followed by the Trocadero centre in Piccadilly and - to my sheer delight - another branch has appeared in Queensway which is much closer to me (and thus, incredibly dangerous). I generally think when anything contains almost the same amount of calories as a women's recommended daily intake, its probably not a good idea to go near it. But ignore this advice for one day and starve yourself if you have to, because they are fabulous little buns of pure cinnamon joy! Get yours today!

Then - no doubt - curse me repeatedly for introducing you to these devillishly delicious cinammon treats. I know you will.
