Review: Arby’s Cinnamon Roll Fried Pie

Rule #1 for being a junk meals fan: Once you hear {that a} trial product is accessible in your space, you give it a strive. Additional on the record of guidelines: Take pleasure in this product whereas it is scorching, particularly when you’re feeling chilly. Each ideas just lately led me to Arby’s to take a look at their Cinnamon Roll Fried pie. The check product, a fried pastry with a cinnamon filling, is accessible at choose places for a restricted time. (The chain launched an analogous providing—a strawberry and cream selection—final 12 months.)

It is solely becoming that Arby’s examined this new dessert in my neighborhood as a result of March marks the longest section in my metropolis’s annual infinite winter. With spring far behind us, we lace up our socks, scrunch them onerous, and brace ourselves for the inevitable spring blizzard that, like a horror film villain, pops up for one final scare simply as you assume the worst is over. To outlive, we want consolation meals, and with this new experimental product, Arby’s goals to create an excellent trio of heat and luxury: pancake, fried meals, and cinnamon roll.

Finally, Arby’s Cinnamon Roll Fried Pie does justice to each ingredient within the trifecta. The fried pastry within the form of a turnover is the crunchy star of the dessert. They’re golden brown, filled with tiny air bubbles that come from the excessive frying temperature, and virtually crack with crispness on the floor. Beneath the preliminary crunch, the dough is fluffy, mushy and supple, with no hint of sprinkling or oily residue.

The cinnamon roll filling is scrumptious and beneficiant. I tasted quantity of savory spice in each chew. The feel shocked and baffled me. I used to be anticipating some sticky drip, which I admit sounds extra like a symptom of the chilly you get throughout the infinite winter. However any cinnamon roll fan is aware of the stuff: the melted sugary butter that will get sucked contained in the thick, rising roll dough. Nevertheless, the filling on this fried pie jogs my memory of the filling earlier than it was baked: thick and moist, however nonetheless extra like a mushy and shaggy dough in texture.

I want I knew the stuffing recipe, however like a proud grandmother who protects her culinary secrets and techniques, Arby’s hasn’t launched that info. I am curious as to how the padding maintains its physique with out feeling heavy. Elements I might anticipate finding in a cinnamon roll, like the same old butter or questionable cream cheese, did not appear to contribute to the filling’s style or texture. Whereas it tastes like the middle of a cinnamon roll, the flavour of the filling can also be just a little one-note. The road icing might need added an additional dimension to the not-so-sweet pie.

Arby’s Cinnamon Roll Fried Pie is an affordable, pocket-sized pie that hits the spot, particularly when you’re munching on it for a warming deal with on the finish of a protracted, chilly day. Its attraction definitely extends into the hotter months as a result of, as one other quick meals rule dictates, fried meals are handy year-round. If this fried pie is on the official Arby’s menu, it simply may turn out to be a brand new favourite.
