This is embarrassing to admit, but the cinnamon in my pantry is approximately 3 years old. I know this because itâ€™s an off-brand from the grocery store next to my old job in Pittsburgh. So when Spices Inc offered to send me some new spices, I jumped at the chance.
I love cooking with spices, but cinnamon is definitely my favorite spice. Combined with brown sugar, itâ€™s a perfect oatmeal topper!
Nom, nom, nom.
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup vanilla almond breeze
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: Organic Saigon Cinnamon, brown sugar, and almonds
I could DEFINITELY taste the difference in the new Organic Saigon Cinnamon compared to my old cinnamon. It was so rich and flavorful. I want to eat it by the spoonful!

Itâ€™s a rainy, dreary day in Florida. Hopefully the weather will clear up at quitting time so I can go on a bike ride! Time to get my work done.
