The pumpkin season is here. Here is another pumpkin review in the refrigerated section next to the biscuits and cinnamon rolls.
The pros: Strongest pumpkin flavor is in the icing. So you can choose how much pumpkin you want.
The cons: The only real pumpkin flavor that comes through is in this is in the icing. The roll itself tastes like a regular cinnamon roll with food coloring. A bit pricey for $3.99 for 5 rolls. If you truly love this item, then you'll want to buy a few as this is a seasonal offering.
The verdict: This was a nice change from cinnamon rolls. They are best when they first come out of the oven. They can be heated up the next day for 10-15 seconds in the microwave to give them that fresh out of the oven taste.
The nutritional information (if you are dieting look away):

My feeling on these is that they were good, but I'll still reach for the cinnamon rolls. These were a nice seasonal change especially for people who can't get enough pumpkin. Love pumpkin, you'll really like these.
