So I thought I knew cinnamon. There are no words I can use to describe how amazing these 8- and 12-inch pieces of cinnamon truly are. Lifechanging. Subtle. Powerful. I feel like a character from a Willy Wonka movie, gnawing and biting off pieces of this bark given to us by our beloved friends Todd & Diane. And now that they've posted an entire blog entry about it you can read about it too. And they're giving a few pieces of their cinnamon away.
But not me. No way.
I'm hanging on to this stuff for as long as humanly possible. Because it's just that different. And that good. And I will be a very sad boy when my supply is gone. I guess I'll have to take a trip to Vietnam.

P.S. I forgot to say that you can actually eat pieces of this bark and it tastes exactly like a Red Hot candy. Sweet and all. It's phenomenal.
