Since they were first introduced in America, cinnamon rolls have been a favorite for breakfasts, brunches and snacks. Crisp, chewy and fluffy on in the inside while being slathering all over with sweet icing, it's hard to find anything better.
Eat This, Not That! searched around the country to find the tastiest cinnamon rolls in each state, from classic takes on the sweet treats to gargantuan and robust rolls perfect for splitting with a friend. According to the site:
"From the big-as-your-face pastries at greasy spoon diners to the gooey, gourmet buns topped with crunch bits like bacon crumbles and pecans, the delectable cinnamon roll was brought to the United States by Swedish and German immigrants in the 17th century."
