Flip Flop Flying


with 13 comments

I had my first cup of coffee since Tuesday morning today. This, in dog years, in bloody ages for me. But it was ruined – ruined! – because the lady who made my cappuccino put cinnamon on top. I loathe cinnamon. Dust of the devil. But I feel so very alone with my loathing. I surely can’t be the only person who hates cinnamon, but everyone who I’ve ever mentioned it to smacks their lips in a mmm-mmmm, it’s lovely manner. Help me! Anyone else share my disliking of cinnamon?

  1. I’m indifferent to it, but I can vouch for my friend Jen who shares your utter disgust with the substance. So: at least one Californian shares your pain!

  2. Yep, it’s foul. However you dress it up as ‘christmassy’, in cakes, in perfume(!! WHY!!) or as a twiggy surprise with your coffee. I say ban it.

  3. Dear boy, you are not alone!

    It is the dust of the devil, and should be banned from all coffee shops post haste!

    Keep up the good work!

  4. I hate it too! Its really hard to avoid in America and its been known to ruin the odd samosa too.

  5. Well, I don’t hate cinnamon, but I don’t want it on my coffee. I reckon you’ve got the cultural thing to contend with. In NZ, I’m pretty sure noone in their right mind would order a cappuccino if they wanted a real coffee without cinnamon sprinkles, but we get to order a flat white instead. I guess you don’t have that luxury.

    Hmmm… I’m going to go get a flat white RIGHT NOW!

  10. Don’t worry, you’re right. Cinnamon is ghastly, and the rest of the world is wrong if they don’t agree. Cloves are also horrible, for those times when there’s no cinnamon around to hate.
