Used in lover’s potions and perfumes for wealthy Romans and to flavor wines, cinnamon was a highly prized and cherished spice throughout the Middle Ages. By the 1700’s crops such as coffee, sugar, tea and chocolate became the focus of traders, the earliest spice distributors, throughout Europe, replacing traditional spices and crops. There are a number of varieties of cinnamon with individual qualities based upon the species and origination. Many are warming while others impart a sharp pungency that builds quickly on the palate.
Cinnamon was our flavor choice of the month. We loved experimenting so much we couldn’t decide on a single innovation! We paired both with popcorn, but this seasoning blend would be lovely in other applications such as drinks, or modified to be a Mole Sauce for just a start.
Roasted Cinnamon is a warm flavor, slightly sweet and reminds you of pies baking in the oven or a warm slice of cinnamon crumb cake.
Hot Cinnamon, our second variation, hits with bright heat and lingers on your tongue, much like movie theater candy.
Both are formulated without artificial color and MSG free; we can tailor these to your customer’s preference.
