October 4 is known as International Cinnamon Roll Day, or kanelbullens dag. The holiday was invented in 1999 by the Swedish Home Baking Council (Hembakningsrådet), to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Since then, cinnamon rolls have spread throughout the world, changing in diameter depending on where they travel. One of the largest cinnamon rolls can be found in Haga, an area of Gothenburg, Sweden. Called hagabullar – meaning Queen of the Kitchen – they are usually 12 inches in diameter or more. In 2010, the average Swede ate the equivalent of 316 cinnamon rolls, according to the Swedish Board of Agriculture and Statistics. In total, that is 316,949,789 pounds of cinnamon rolls consumed by the citizens of Sweden! Stop by the Swedish American Museum pop-up café to get yours. Coffee and a roll is $6.
