Very tasty! Not as good as the 800-calorie kind, but I almost never allow myself to enjoy those. This lower-calorie version is nice and what makes it great is that I can enjoy them more often. I confess I did use a lot more cinnamon, I think at least 1 teaspoon (kept adding to the 1/3 cup sugar until the color looked right).
