Marc Cuban's TV show Shark Tank is bringing the Dallas area another sugar buzz. A few years ago the show gave Sweet Ballz the green light, and cake balls hit the shelves of local 7-Elevens and other stores. Now, Cuban is behind California-based Cinnaholic, and a first location opened in Southlake this past weekend.
The rolls are vegan, which means they're all dairy-free, lactose-free, egg-free and cholesterol-free, but they aren't low calorie. More than 30 choices of toppings and frostings will offer customers the chance to pound themselves into a vegan-friendly sugar coma. You can create confections like a cinnamon bun with caramel frosting and a topping of chocolate chip cookie dough. Chocolate chips, crumbles, drizzles and fresh fruit are available to adorn your bun how you see fit.
Southlake is just the first location of Cinnaholic. Four more are slated to open over the next three years in Richardson, Plano, Frisco and Addison.
