Oh you never would believe where those Keebler cookies come from! They’re baked by little elves in a hollow tree. And what do you think makes those cookies so uncommon? They’re baked in magic ovens, and there’s no factory!
I can’t testify to the truth of the above jingle from Keebler, but I can say with great authority that I enjoy their tasty cookies. My personal favorite is their delicious Soft Batch cookies, but I like many of their products, including Fudge Stripes, E. L. Fudge, and their Jumbo Mint fudge sticks. (It appears I like a lot of their ‘fudge’ based products.)
I also like cinnamon rolls. We don’t have many Cinnabon stores near where I live in Indiana. The closest one is in Indianapolis, around 45 minutes to an hour away. There are only 5 in the state! This is a shame, because their cinnamon rolls are really tasty!
Apparently, the Keebler elves have noticed this woeful lack of local cinnamon product, and have worked their Keebler magic and provided Cinnabon cinnamon rolls in cookie form. Behold!
Look how proud that elf is of those cookies! (FYI: That elf is Ernest J. Keebler, known to his friends as “Ernie”. Just thought you might want to know that). He should be proud, too. These cookies look like cinnamon rolls! They even have the swirl down-pat, and the frosting stripes! Here is a closer look at the cookie.
These are quite good. If you are a fan of cinnamon rolls (and if you aren’t, what is wrong with you?) then I am pretty confident that you will really enjoy these. They are soft, and have a very strong cinnamon flavor, as expected. The frosting on top doesn’t make that big of a difference in the taste, but it is a nice touch to the appearance of the cookie.
Fun fact: According to the Keebler website, The Keebler Elves first fired up their magic oven in Philadelphia in 1853. That’s before the Civil War! I don’t know why that blows my mind, but it does. I guess the Keebler Elves have a much longer lifespan than we average humans. That is lucky for us, because it means that they will be making their delicious cookies and other snacks for years to come!
