Roll with the punches. (Food Porn).
Introducing Mrs. Fields new Cinnamon Roll with Cream Cheese Icing. If this were a boxing match, it would be no contest.
In one corner you have a Cinnabon, which lumbers into the ring at 8 ounces, 670 calories, 34 grams of fat (14 of them saturated or trans), and 12 teaspoons of sugar. A true heavyweight if we ever saw one.
In the other corner you've got Mrs. Fields, who tips the scales at 10 ounces, 1,070 calories, 48 grams of fat (28 of them saturated), and 18 teaspoons of sugar. (We don't know how much trans is in each iced roll, but since the Mrs. uses butter instead of Cinnabon's margarine, it may not be much.)
That makes Mrs. Fields a clear winner. Or is that loser?
You could eat three of her Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies--or four Dunkin' Donuts Glazed Donuts--and still be some 170 calories short of a Cinnamon Roll with Cream Cheese Icing. Ordering the Sticky Bun icing instead doesn't undo enough of the damage.
If you want to bet on this fight, you'd be smart to wager against both sides.
Mrs. Fields: (800) 323-1156.
