Why we love it

You probably haven't had this cinnamon before. Grown in the Vietnamese mountains, it's not widely exported or stocked in traditional supermarkets. But oh, it's a sensory delight. Sweeter, spicier, and generally more potent than most cinnamons, you barely need a pinch to enjoy the flavor. Sprinkle it on your baked goods (hello, cakes and pies) or use it as a topping for yogurt, ice cream, and more.

How it does good

Making a positive social impact and a low environmental impact

Burlap & Barrel sources their spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms. They visit each of these farms, spending time with the employees to learn about the economic, social, and environmental implications of their methods. Every decision they make is fueled by their goal to end inequality and exploitation in the food industry. They do this by connecting small farms to high-value markets, educating consumers about the impact of product traceability, and sourcing unique foods that are grown using biodynamic and organic techniques.

  • responsible sourcing

    Burlap & Barrel uses fair trade practices when working with small, international farms.
  • low carbon footprint

    Ingredients are sourced directly, shortening the supply chain and reducing the distance the product has to travel. Their spices are also dried in the sun.
  • recyclable packaging

    The glass jars and lids are recyclable.
  • supporting key causes

    Burlap & Barrel works to bring positive social impact both in the areas where they source and at home for their local organizations. As a Public Benefits Corporation, they publish annual Imact Reports that share updates on their social mission.

How to use it

This sweet, potent cinnamon makes a great addition to yogurt, smoothies, sweet potatoes, baked goods—really just your spice rack in general.

When you're done...

The glass jar and metal lid are curbside recyclable, once separated. The plastic shrink band and sifter top are recyclable through TerraCycle by following our special instructions.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

Did not disappoint

I got this for my boyfriend, who puts cinnamon on a lot of things, and now he puts it on even more things. I'm not even a cinnamon fan, and I have to admit it's the best I have had.
