Cinnamon rolls are a classic treat for any dessert lover, and when they are vegan and healthy, well…that’s a whole other level of awesomeness. On Friday night’s episode of “Shark Tank,” a show where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to investors — “the sharks” — Cinnaholic, a California-based cinnamon roll shop, got sweet offers for their decadent vegan dessert.
With over 30 frosting options and an additional 30 toppings to choose from, these gourmet, vegan cinnamon rolls are customizable. The sharks got a taste of their finest rolls: caramel banana cream pie, mocha almond roll, classic old school roll, coffee cookie dough, and almond raspberry. If you live outside of the Golden State, don’t despair, Cinnaholic lets you order online. What’s more, these rolls don’t perish quickly and will make it cross-country and still taste amazing.
However, Cinnaholic’s rolls are calorie heavy, and the classic old school roll contains between 480 to 500 calories per pastry! But, the good news is that, because it is vegan, it contains about half the calories of an original cinnamon roll.
These dairy, egg, cholesterol-free cinnamon rolls were a hit in the “Shark Tank.” Founders Shannon and Florian Radke asked for $200,000 in exchange for 20 percent of their company. In the end, the Radkes’ left with an offer from one of the Sharks, Robert Herjavec, for $200,000 in exchange for 40 percent of the company and contingent on the fact that they have to expand their online shop.
Great news for all of us Green Monsters! If we live outside of California, we will still be able to enjoy this decadent, 100 percent vegan treat, shipped to us whenever we want. Now, that’s a sweet deal worth getting.
