    The Cinnamon Challenge

    For those who aren't familiar, the challenge is to swallow a spoonful of cinnamon without the aid of water. It is shockingly hard, as demonstrated by the brutal record of human failure splashed all over Youtube.

    I'm pretty sure EarlJam could do it.

    That was hilarious!

    At first I thought I could do it, but after watching the video I'm going to leave this one alone.

    EarlJam, let us know if you do it!!

    P.S. Not craving cinnamon!

    Haven't tried yet myself, but watching others try is hilarious!

    Anyone here been successful?

    I did it with cinnamon sugar. It was all that was in the cupboard (sp?) but it worked and still sucked. I'd say the ratio was like 80:20 cinnamon to sugar.

    Hard to explain the feeling, it totally removes all water from your mouth as soon as it goes in. Kinda like swallowing sand.

    Interesting thought, so far I have avoided doing this at least in my memorable history.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    Pamtar,

    Are you sure the ratio was 4 to 1 cinnamon to sugar? The cinnamon sugar around here, for toast, is 3 to 1 the other way. 20% sugar probably woudn't be nearly enough to make it palatable. JMO. I once did 50/50 and it was not very toothsome.

    kind regards,
    cspan

    Yeah, i should have reduced it to 4:1. I hate math. OTOH, the ingredients listed the cinnamon first and that usually means there is more.

    I do cinnamon in capsule form. The burps are amazing! (and aromatic)

    I think you have been talking/reading EarlJam, too much. Now you have probably given him yet another idea for a thread...

    I'm just reading this thread. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Interesting.

    Here's a question I have: What are the side effects if you ARE able to do it? Will it upset your stomach? Give you the runs? Seriously, if you're able to pull off the feat, is it even safe?

    And why cinnamon? Why not cumin or....man, what's that powder you use to make dill pickles? Almum or something like that. One grain of that will make your lips shrivel into nothingness.
