Cinnamon Toothpicks

Ok, these aren’t exactly candy, but they are close since they are cinnamon-flavored. I vaguely remember someone I knew as a kid having the cinnamon toothpicks that came in cellophane packs of 10. The cinnamon toothpicks were flat, not round. I loved those things – they tasted like Atomic Fireballs (which I LOVE) and they lasted a long time.

I also remember that as a kid, when we would go to restaurants, I would hope that they had flavored (minty) toothpicks. The minty ones were always individually wrapped, round (not flat), and they didn’t last as long as the cinnamon ones. I don’t remember restaurants having cinnamon toothpicks though maybe they did.

Would you believe that Cinnamon Toothpicks are consistently one of the top 5 sellers each day in Amazon’s candy sales and many times it’s also in the top 5 of all of Amazon’s gourmet food sales? It is, I’ve been watching. Who is buying them though? People like me who remember them from their childhood?

    I’ve only seen them for sale anywhere once, when I thought it was silly to buy them, since they’d be easy to make for yourself. Then again, I actually DO that now.

    I remember in High School in 1977-1980 there was an epedemic of people bringing Cinnamon Toothpicks to school. Lately talking with people at work about school, they said they remember the same thing. KIds were even making there own very potent Picks and kids were breaking out in rashes from them. Boy those were the times.
