Kellogg's Cinnabon Snack Bars Deliver!

The Owl has braces, and any of you Moms whose kids are suffering along with him know that sometimes, it just hurts too much to chew when those bands get tightened.

As Moms, though, we do have to feed our kids, darn it, and so we end up cajoling and pleading with them to try a banana or a milkshake or mac and cheese, something soft that we can entice them to eat while they are going through those tough times.

The Owl's weaknesses include the aforementioned mac and cheese, blueberry muffins, and Cinnabon cinnamon rolls.

This love for cinnamon doesn't surprise me. I have a sweet tooth myself, and I heard once that the scent of cinnamon causes an immediate response in many of us--this warm, friendly, welcoming scent of cinnamon triggers memories of "home": baked goods fresh from the oven.

Well, Kellogg's must know that, because their latest cinnamony good snack hit a home run in our family.

Now, instead of heading out to the mall for a Cinnabon, we can unwrap Kellogg's Cinnabon Snack Bars instead.

What I think makes these treats even better than their sticky bun counterparts, though, is that in addition to the sugar and cinnamon filling and cream cheese frosting, each Kellogg's Cinnabon Snack Bar weighs in at just 150 calories.

So Moms can indulge our sweet tooth, too, without feeling guilty.

Not that, you know, I eat them all the time or anything.

But, when I do?

I like to microwave mine for just a few seconds, for that "just baked" taste. ; )

I'm always looking for good, filling snacks for my boys. Sadly, they are not cinnamon fans; however, one cannot have chocolate. I'll try to sneak it into their sports bags, though, to see if it works:)
