Apparently this is a thing? Where people try to eat spoonfuls of cinnamon (or really cassia bark)? And then they fail miserably, choking it up in a cloud of rusty smoke?
Well that’s because, being made of tree bark, common cinnamon is extremely hydrophobic (it’s the mix of cellulose and organic bark compounds). So instead of your saliva coating it an making it possible to swallow, you just choke like a fool on video.
