Reader: Johnson's Corner Cinnamon Rolls Are Big, But Taste Horrible
Johnson's Corner cinnamon roll.
The news that Johnson's Corner, the iconic truck stop just north of the Berthoud exit on I-25, will soon be sold to TravelCenters of America drew many cries of "noooo" and "Welcome to corporate America." Members of the founding family -- Joe Johnson opened Johnson's Corner back in 1950 -- promise that the place will be business as usual and that the renowned cinnamon rolls will stay...but some folks are ready to say so long to those, too.
Never got the cinnamon roll hype. Yes, they're big...but taste horrible.
I think their cinnamon rolls have a reputation for being better than they actually are. Maybe years ago they were glorious, but every time I've tried them, meh.
Definitely don't get the cinnamon rolls topped with cough syrup glaze.
