During a lunch meetup at SM North Edsa, a UAE-based childhood friend let me try Mochiko, a Japanese-inspired confection akin to mochi-filled balls. The outer covering, made from glutinous mochiko or rice flour, wraps around a solid ball of luscious premium-grade ice cream.

As parting gift, I offered her a box each of the regular-sized bons (classic and chocobon, P95 and P85, respectively) from Cinnabon , and got a box of 5’s each of the minibon classic (P85) and mini chocobons (P75). We were supposed to get Cello’s doughnuts as I have a voucher for that but turns out we had to reserve at least a day prior to pick-up.

While the bons aren’t as soft as I remembered regular-sized ones to be, the taste remained the same. The pungent cinnamon flavor of the classic bons goes sooo well with the light cream cheese frosting, and left me wishing that Cinnabon has an option for extra cream cheese.

The mini bons are a perfect choice if you’d like to just try different flavors or would like to share without spending a lot. You’d better consume the bons right away though. I stored some in the fridge for a day, and even when kept enclosed in the box then microwaved, the center became tough to chew.
I wish everyday could be dessert day!
