Did you know that Sweden and Finland have been celebrating an annual National Cinnamon Bun day for 20 years this Friday? Though we’re not sure how we’ve managed to miss this delicious of event, we’ve every reason to get behind it this Friday. For the 20th anniversary, purveyors of arguably Auckland’s best cinnamon buns, Scandibunz, will bringing this amazing treat-laden day to New Zealand—giving away 1000 of the sugary, light puffs from their stall on Takutai Square in Britomart as part of Food Truck Friday.
Better believe this day is a big deal in Sweden, where a population of 10 million eats seven million buns on Cinnamon Bun Day alone, you do the math.
This Friday, expect a veritable mountain of the treats stacked high (though if you’re foolish enough to be tardy the pile will likely look less impressive) so beat a path to Takutai Square post haste for your free morning tea.
