CARY, N.C. — With toppings like house made cookie dough and fresh fruit, Cinnaholic is a cinnamon roll lovers dream.

The shop, located in Parkside Town Commons in Cary, is a locally owned franchise. The concept was made famous after its creators appeared on the popular "Shark Tank" reality show to ask for investors. There are five locations in North Carolina, but this is the only one in the Triangle area.

Cinnaholic is all about customization. You can go in and select one of the many signature rolls like the Caramel Apple Pie Roll (caramel frosting topped with fresh apples, pecans, homemade pie crumble and caramel sauce) and the Cookie Monster Roll (cream cheese frosting topped with homemade chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chips, and chocolate sauce).

Or you can create your own roll by selecting up to two frostings (flavors include vanilla, cream cheese, creme brulee, hazelnut, peanut butter and so many more!) and unlimited toppings that include a variety of fresh fruit, peanut butter cups, Oreos, sprinkles, nuts and just about anything else you can think of.

There are also seasonal rolls. Fall's flavors are Pumpkin Spice Roll (pumpkin frosting topped with homemade Cinnadoodle cookie bites, marshmallows and cinnamon dust) and the Fluffernutter Roll (fluffernutter frosting topped with homemade peanut butter cups, marshmallows and chocolate sauce).

All icings are made in-house.

There are fresh brownies, cookies and even mini cinnamon rolls also on the menu. And for pizza fans, Cinnaholic has introduced a Pizza Roll.

The entire menu is also vegan, which means no animal products are being used in anything. You'd never notice that there isn't any actual dairy in the icings. They just taste sweet and delicious.

My family preferred the seasonal rolls the best, so definitely try the Fluffernutter if you love peanut butter!

Cinnaholic is located at 1209 Parkside Main Street in Cary. Orders can be placed online for pick-up as well as in the shop.
