north dakota caramel rolls go viral in north dakota. go figure.

I certainly wasn't expecting this. After posting the caramel roll recipe earlier this week - it took off - to the tune of 25,000 page views and counting. Apparently it's become a big hit in North Dakota. My hometown family friend Stacey really got the ball rolling (Thanks, Stacey!). She shared the link on Facebook and it just snowballed from there. She sent me a message yesterday with this funny tidbit:

I saw [a former neighbor of mine from Williston] at a local restaurant today and told her about your blog and she said to me, I kept seeing a picture of a carmel roll recipe on my Facebook newsfeed!!! Here it was your blog!!!

I guess you guys really like caramel rolls! I'm totally blown away by the response. If I had known so many people were going to stop by, I would have cleaned up the place.

I hope a few of you will stick around to enjoy future recipes and musings, but if all this traffic means North Dakota caramel rolls are hitting the mouths of people around the country, then I think my work here is done.

  1. A friend of mine pinned the caramel rolls (she's originally from Williston). I had to check out the post and of course check out other posts, and now you have another ND native hooked on your blog :-)
