I remember those everyone thought they were so cool with those toothpicks in their mouth. I have not seen those things around in years though.

I didn't get them to look cool. I just loved the hot cinamonny taste afterwards. I haven't seen them in a few years either here in Minnesota. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Yeah, I remember those. I've noticed that I've seen less and less toothpicks in general, too. I still have a canister full of them, I think, for cooking. I used to chew on those toothpicks because they tasted so good and were better than chewing gum.

I know not too long ago, (about 3-4 years ago) my husband had a package like that..Don't know where he got them, but I thought they were great for when flossing wasn't available and the cinnamon made it seem like I had a cleaner mouth.

I remember those too. My mom used to make them for us also. she always made cinnamon candy also. Do you rmember the pop rocks? The candy you could stick on your tongue and the crystals would pop on your tongue?

Yes! I do remember these. What fun! I had only used them when at a restaurant though - it really was a nice feature, kind of freshened up the mouth :) they were tasty to chew on, hehe. I do not believe I had ever seen them offered at shopping stores however.

cinnamon tooth picks - Oh I remember them very well!!
You have such a wonderful memory! Yes I remember them and I remember them very well! My brothers and I loved those things and got them quite often. We were told a lot to not run with them in our mouths and we could never understand that till we were older. lol

As a child on the way to school there was a deli that had them individually wrapped and I'd stop by each morning grabbing a few. Granted the nuns did not like me having them in my mouth but I still got them each day. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
