Cinnaholic Giveaway!

We have a winner! Becca who said:

“OMG! I’ve really been missing Cinnaholic since I moved 3,000 miles away.

The s’mores roll is calling my name.”

Thanks for playing, everyone!


The time has come, MoFo’ers. It’s the last giveaway of The Vegan Month Of Food, a bittersweet goodbye. Let’s go our separate ways and walk into the sunset with 80s alternative music playing. Wait, we can’t both walk into the sunset, or that would mean we’re not going our separate ways. I’ll walk into the sunset, and you can just watch until I’m out of sight. And to make it somewhat more bearable, why don’t you eat….a cinnamon roll! Or half a dozen cinnamon rolls since it might be a long goodbye.

Cinnaholic is an entirely vegan bakery located in Berkeley California. I was able to sample a few rolls earlier this month and they were a spiral of ooey, gooey, sweet and spicy…just about everything you’d want on a crisp fall morning. You pick your own frosting flavor and a topping, or you can go with one of their specialty rolls, like Apple Pie or Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

This offer is for 6 of their original flavored cinnamon buns. But to enter the giveaway, visit the Cinnaholic website and tell us which flavor you would order if you visited the bakery!  A winner will be chosen tonight, probably sometime after midnight EST. You must have a US or Canada address and leave a valid email to win. Good luck, everyone, and have a safe and happy Halloween!

  10. Cadry says:

    I love cinnamon rolls! I’m glad there are so many people making vegan cinnamon rolls since the yeast and the rising and the rolling is so time intensive. I’d probably order the original cinnamon roll; there’s beauty in simplicity where cinnamon rolls are concerned. But my second choice would involve almond frosting and raspberry topping.

  11. SaraJane says:

    Chocolate frosting with raspberry topping. Oh man. These look amazing.

  12. Monica says:

    Peach pie rolls!

  13. laura says:

    SO glad this is open to Canadians!!!!!!!!! Oh man, it’s a tough choice, but I think I would go with the S’mores!

  15. Momo says:

    Holy shitake those look amazing! I would get caramel frosting with apple topping :) omnomnomnom. I can’t believe the end of MoFo is here already :(

  17. Chuck says:

  20. Kimberly Doss says:

    I have to say the candy cane one sounds really good to me for some reason.

  21. Vanessa says:

    Ahh! I miss cinnaholic so much. Being in Boston is killing me, I need y bay area vegan food! I would definitely grub on a roll with hazelnut frosting, shredded coconut, and chocolate chips! I might just have to order some for my dorm room!

  22. Bree says:

    Root beer frosting sounds so so amazing!!! I would get that!

  23. Sophie says:

    Fudge brownie chunk!

  27. Kristin McAllister says:

    Wow–your list is amazing!
    I am a new vegetarian, and am learning about all of the wonderful choices that really are out there.

    I’d choose the Cookie Dough and top it with caramel and coconut.

    Now I can’t wait to make a trip up there!

  28. Megan says:

    As long as there is hazelnut frosting involved, I’m set!

  29. Lizzie says:

    Classic buns with almond frosting. Oh my yes.

  32. Melissa says:

    Butterscotch with some kind of nut- not sure, maybe hazelnuts?

  33. Anne says:

    Oh my goodness, their Oreo Explosion roll sounds amazing. Its a close call though with the Brownie Fudge chunk. They all sound so good!

  34. Kelly says:

    Too many options! Ahhh! Umm, I’d go with an original roll with Pumpkin Spice frosting and the gingersnap cookie topping.

  35. Annie says:

    Rad! These guys are just across the bridge from me! When I go, I will get one with cherry frosting and almonds on top.

  36. veganlinda says:

    Original roll with root beer frosting and coconut on top says my inner child. My almost 40 year old self says an original roll with almond frosting and pomegranate seeds. They all look soooo good, I bet I gained 10 lbs just looking at the website.

  37. I would spend a lot of money: hazelnut, butter pecan, butterscotch, maple frostings; all manner of chocolate and marshmallow toppings; and one each of the specialty rolls minus banana. Okay, banana too!!

  38. Haley says:

    I don’t want other flavors overpowering the awesome cinnamon roll experience – so I would get one (dozen) with the original “old skool” frosting

  39. Melissa says:

    My head explodes when I have too many options, so instead of picking my own frosting & toppings (it would take me 2 hours to choose between them all), I’d go with a Rocky Road specialty roll!!

  40. Loretta says:

    I would definitely go for the pumpkin spice frosting with walnuts. Traditional, I know, but it says Fall to me. I’m drooling just thinking about them!

  41. Lisa says:

    Definitely pumpkin spice. 6 months pregnant and the little guy is craving fall foods!

  42. Beth M. says:

    OMG there’s so many flavors and toppings to choose from! I would have to start off with a roll topped with chocolate frosting and almond and coconut toppings and another with chocolate frosting and peanut butter topping (an ode to my favorite pre-veg halloween candies almond joys and reeses). Then I would order a chocolate chip cookie dough and a s’mores roll on the side…and that would just be the beginning :)

  43. babette says:

    I’d pick almond frosting.

  44. Katie says:

    YUM! I would definitely do Pumkin Spice with Fudge Brownie Topping, rich and festive all at the same time :)

  55. Seana S says:

  56. Kelly says:

    Smores! Whoaaaa yes.

    WOW! The Rocky Road for sure! can’t wait to be back in the Valley, I’ll be stopping in for SURE!

    I didn’t know that this website existed, these look absolutely INSANELY delicious! I would want to try almond frosting with shredded coconut first!!!

  73. Happy Halloween and Happy 1 Year Anniversary to my hubby, my vegan inspiration and best friend. I would have to get the pumpkin spice topped with marshmallows and chocolate chips to be reminiscent of my Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes from our wedding last year…This has been a great Vegan Mofo. Congrats everyone! Let’s continue it through the year to the next and beyond

  74. Sara says:

    Definitely Rocky Road, though everything sounds delicious!

  75. Tiffany says:

    Oh do I love that maple frosting. So maple it is, with hazelnuts and graham crackers.

  76. BklynHeart says:

    You had me at Cinnaholic! How do I get a direct feed to central Va?!?,


    Pumpkin Spice, though Caramel, Almond and Hazelnut are tempting. Alas, I truly need to marry my cinnamon obsession to my Pumpkin one, and this seems a delicious way to do so!

    Now, about that direct feed to Central Va? Seems some sort of James Bondian express tube structure would be in order…

  77. Kate says:

    That peanut butter and jelly roll sounds like it was made for me.

  78. urbanvegan says:

  93. Kathryn says:

    Oh my god, I think you mean what flavor wouldn’t I order – they all look so yummy! I would probably go for coffee frosting and chocolate chip toppings…or holiday spices, cause whatever those spices are they’re probably delicious. Holiday anything = the best.

  94. Amberle says:

    O.MA.GAWD. DROOL. I would desperately love to try to the s’mores roll or the rocky road roll and or every single other thing on the menu! dear lord, this makes me think that if I had to pick one food to survive off of…..maybe it would be these cinnamon rolls! How could you ever get tired with all of those combinations!

    Maple frosting with walnuts on top!

  96. Alice Henry says:

    I think I’d have to get the maple frosting with brownie chunks for the topping. Yummmmm

  97. MizzB says:

    I’m having the banana topping with the pina colada frosting!
    Though I have to agree with everyone who says the original is good; it is really truly good, y’all.

  98. Leah says:

    Original rolls with almond frosting and orange topping. But anything from Cinnaholic sounds absurdly delicious.

  99. Kirsten says:

    Almond frosting with macadamia nuts!! Yummo

  100. Kim says:

    I love Cinnaholic and went many times when I lived in Berkeley and I miss them so much now that I moved away. I would order the order the standard “old skool” frosting and then add hazelnuts and brownie chunks as toppings. Thanks for having such a great giveaway!

  115. Lys says:

    Gah, pumpkin spice!!!

    • Shoaib says:

      Being the cupcake coiosnnseur that I am, I have eaten MANY a cupcake in my day. And I have to say, yours were top-notch. I’ve made the rounds to Sprinkles and other little shoppes that have cropped up as of late, and with the exception of Auntie Em’s Kitchen in Eagle Rock (which, btw, is famous for their red velvet )yours have, ahem taken the proverbial cake. Please freeze the leftovers and FedEx them to my house. KTHXBAI.

  116. Anna says:

    mmm…chocolate chip cookie dough! or something with lots of yummy almonds.

  117. Tanya says:

    Whoa! So many flavors……they look amazing. I’d love to try the mocha almond specialty rolls or pumpkin spice or lemon frosting or ginger snap or brownie chunk toppings….I’d really have to think about this one :)

  118. Amanda says:

    I’d have to take two…one original to see what they’re all about, and the other, butterscotch with chocolate chips, walnuts, and shredded cocunut (’cause how often do vegans come across butterscotch?).

  119. OMG! That is a lot of options! I would probably like the classic vanilla frosting, but chocolate frosting and banana, shredded coconut and marshmallows topping might be a great option, too.
    Elisabeth @CzechVegan czech.vegan (at)

  120. nik says:

  138. Craig says:

    I’d go with just the plain old vanilla frosting.

    Almond frosting with almond topping sounds delish but a good old plain vegan cinnamon roll would do! yummy!

  151. Leah Schocket says:

    My favorite combination that I’ve had so far is blackberry frosting with fresh blackberries on top. It’s an absolutely delicious combination. Sweet, gooey, and fresh all at the same time.
