The size of a cinnamon roll varies from place to place, but many vendors supply a smaller size about 5 centimeters (2. 0 in) in diameter and a larger size about 10 cm (3. 9 in) to a side. The larger variety can be found in Finland, called korvapuusti (literally: a 'slap on the ear'), where it can be up to 20 cm (7. 9 in) in diameter and weigh up to 200 g (7. 1 oz). Haga, an area in Gothenburg, Sweden, is well known for their very large cinnamon rolls. These cinnamon rolls are called hagabullar or 'Queen of the kitchen'. Hagabullar are usually 12 inches or more in diameter and are, despite their size, not considered a communal roll. Each person usually orders one each.
