“Cinnamon is really just delicious sawdust”

Cinnamon is made from the bark of Cinnamomum trees. Cinnamon powder has been compared to sawdust. “Ground cinnamon is sawdust. But there is good sawdust and bad sawdust,” a Chicago (IL) Tribune article in 2001 printed.

“Cinnamon is sawdust” was posted on Twitter on March 27, 2009. “Cinnamon = spicy sawdust” was posted on Twitter on February 27, 2012. “Cinnamon is /sawdust/.  Tasty, tasty sawdust” was posted on Twitter on April 22, 2013. “Cinnamon is really just delicious sawdust” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on July 22, 2016.


Wikipedia: Cinnamon
Cinnamon (/ˈsɪnəmən/ SIN-ə-mən) is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavoring additive in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes, breakfast cereals, snackfoods, and traditional foods. The aroma and flavor of cinnamon derive from its essential oil and principal component, cinnamaldehyde, as well as numerous other constituents, including eugenol.

“What is cinnamon? It’s tree bark,” said Tom Erd, co-owner of The Spice House in Evanston. “Ground cinnamon is sawdust. But there is good sawdust and bad sawdust.”

@yurifingers Is it ground cinnamon or cinnamon bark? You shouldn’t use spices, they taste like sawdust.
