Sheepy - Hello again. It dries the mouth out very rapidly, and is an irritant so that any dust (and it will be dust cos it dried your mouth out) will cause you to sneeze and choke. This of course ends up with sprays of cinnamon everywhere
What actually is cinnamon? As in, what bit of what plant?
They tried it on Mythbusters too. And... it may in fact be possible to eat a spoonful of cinnamon. [xx(]According to HowStuffWorks, the cinnamon sticks that you can buy is the bark of the young shoots off of a cinnamon tree. Actually, Wikipedia mentions an additional step of discarding the outer layers.I would wonder if the cinnamon is produced by the tree to deter animals and insects from eating the young shoots.Anyway, the cinnamon sticks can be ground up to form cinnamon powder.
