    If you are a baker, or not you have to try this cinnamon. I actually tried it in Vietnam. You’ll never go back to regular store bought again. It is such an intense flavor over all other cinnamons I’ve tried. I do bake and the flavor makes everything extra special. It’s worth every penny!

    This is amazing cinnamon! So incredible the difference in taste for my favorite banana bread. Can't wait to use in my cookies. Might even sprinkle a bit on my coffee.

    This is the best cinnamon that I have ever tasted. I enjoyed this so much I make sure it is always in my home. I replaced it every time we run out so I can have it available for drinks, baking, or other uses.
