Burger King is bringing back the beloved Cini Minis. Baked in Burger King ovens daily, these warm, gooey rolls are made with cinnamon sugar and are accompanied by creamy sweet icing for dipping.
Miniature cinnamon rolls Cini Minis were all the craze when they were introduced back in 1998 to Burger King's breakfast menu, but sadly these delicious little rolls then disappeared in the 2000s. Boasting the "best part of the cinnamon roll (the center) in every bite," the beloved '90s treat is currently back on sale at participating Burger King locations, although only "for a limited time," according to Burger King.

This triumphant return is not permanent, however. The rolls will be available in a four-pack for $1.49 for a limited time while supplies last. In addition, the return has a very modern twist - the menu item will be available through GrubHub delivery, the Chicago-based online and mobile food-ordering company. When you spend $10 or more on a Burger King order through the delivery service, you will have the option to add a four-piece Cini Mini to your order for free. So, if you live in an area where Burger King delivers through GrubHub, you can get this sweet indulgence delivered right to your doorstep, according to Elite Daily.

Cini Minis' return is a long time coming, as there was actually a petition on Change.org to bring back the Cini Minis. The 'Demand Burger King brings back Cini-Minis' petition was signed by nearly 2,500 people since it was started three years ago.
“Cini-Minis were a large part of my childhood and Burger King chicken-stripped them away from me like the jesters they are,” wrote Brett Pickett, who started the petition. “Chicken fries aren’t even worth the comeback (nor price); I demand they bring Cini-Minis back so I can once again enjoy the sweet miniature cinnamon rolls of goodness.”
Well, the people have spoken, and at least for now, it sure seems like the burger chain with the fastest drive-thru in America has granted their wish, even if it's for a limited time. Unfortunately, the GrubHub offer is currently only available in the 32 states that offer Burger King delivery, so you have to check if you are geographically eligible before ordering away to your heart's desire.
