Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls Review & Giveaway


I was recently contacted by My Blog Spark about trying Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls with Butter Cream Icing.
Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls were actually one of my mom's favorite treats when I was a kid, so I've had them before, but it had been many years. My children, who had never had them were amazed. My son thought we were having donuts with icing, and my daughter thought they were some kind of cupcake. (Clearly the kids are partial to anything with icing.)



They were easy enough to cook. Pop 'em in the oven, frost 'em when they're done, and suffice it to say that there weren't any leftovers after breakfast. The kiddos loved them, and my husband and I thought they were good too.
Pillsbury had suggested these would be a nice treat for a lazy Sunday morning. I suppose that's true, but Sunday mornings around here are anything but lazy. Getting the kiddos dressed, and the family to church roughly on time means that we sometimes get to church with rumbly tummies. (The kids eat cereal or string cheese in the car.) I'd actually suggest that these would make a nice treat for a crazy, hurried Sunday morning. They take less than 5 minutes of hands on time to cook, and judging by the amount of time it took my kids to snarf them down, they're pretty quick to eat.
Health food they aren't, but they're a quick, yummy treat.
In answer to the question posed by Pillsbury, about what the "sweetest" part of my Sunday morning is, I'd have to say that it's holding hands with my son at church. He rarely sits still long enough to be snuggly, but for 30 minutes on Sunday morning, he sits beside me and willingly holds my hand. :)

My Blog Spark also sent me a neat little prize pack, that included scissors, glue, and a pretty scrapbooking kit. (I haven't used it yet, but if time permits, I'm planning on turning it into a Christmas gift for my dad.)

They've also offered to sponsor a giveaway here.

One commenter will receive the gift pack I got, with a coupon for a free package of Cinnamon Rolls, and the scrapbooking supplies.

  6. The sweetest part of my Sunday - after worship - is the afternoon - we're a pastor's family and Sunday morning's are pretty hectic - so after church everyone breathes a big sigh of relief and we have family time...

  10. The sweetest part of Sunday is going to church as a family and then spending the rest of the day together playing games or watching a movie. Sunday is sweet all together - it's our family day. Thanks for the chance!

  15. The sweetest part of my Sunday is that it's the only day I get to sleep in until eight! My husband wakes up with the little lady, and sometimes she comes looking for Mom by knocking on my bedroom door :)
