I use Ceylon Cinnamon because of the higher quality and stronger taste. I was looking to buy it in bulk because during the winter months when I am making my own Masala Chia mix I go through a lot of cinnamon. This Ceylon hardly has any flavor or smell. I don't know if it is a bad batch or if Swanson's is getting the "old' batches that have been ground some time a go or what the issue is, but I would NOT recommend this cinnamon at all. This is the first product I have gotten from Swanson's that I am not happy with. I will be more cautious in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by EddieL Don't Get Organic Ground Ceylon Cinnamon
I bought Frontier Natural Products Organic Ground Ceylon Cinnamon and can honestly say it doesn't taste anything like cinnamon. It is bland and will ruin anything you use it it. I'm very disappointed in Swanson for carrying such a poor product. A costly mistake for me and trust Sawnson to test products like this before carrying.

This is really a very high quality cinnamon. Good consistency, strong flavor, evenly ground. Because it's organic (protects the environment) and from Ceylon (which apparently is of much higher quality) I will only buy this. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnV I use this cinnamon in much of my cooking and in my coffee. It's mild and is great for blood sugar. I use it enough that I bought it in quantity this time

I use this cinnamon on so many foods. I put it in most baked goods, in my oatmeal, on sliced apples and bananas. It helps keep them from spoiling while it benefits my health. I add it with coco to my coffee and chai.
As another reviewer stated, this cinnamon is the healthiest, but not the best tasting. I use it primarily for health benefits and the taste is fine, but not as good as Swanson's Organic Vietnamese Cinnamon which I also use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FitDoc1 REAL CINNAMON IS DIFFERENT
I use a LOT of Cinnamon on a regular basis. However, I use the two principal and uniquely different varieties for different purposes and for different reasons. Swanson Health Products carries the best of both types, and at very competitive prices.
This Ceylon Cinnamon is not the most common Cinnamon people are used to; however, it is commonly referred to as REAL CINNAMON.
When I make up my therapeutic potions and various health concoctions, I use this superb Ceylon, REAL Cinnamon. It has a mild aroma and flavor; very good, yet not strong in aroma or flavor. However, it is the best from a health / wellness standpoint. You can read all about this when you check out the different types of Cinnamon and their different biochemical properties in the more sophisticated, knowledgeable articles on the internet. (I've written a lot of pieces about Cinnamon over the years myself.)
Cinnamon is very popular these days, and it is common for easy and simple articles to proliferate everywhere --- online, magazines, ads, and blogs, but generally they simply use the generic term cinnamon. That works out okay, because most people use it to sprinkle on oatmeal, apples, etc., or to mix into pies, rolls and recipes. For those uses, people want the best tasting, most powerful and bold Cinnamon, and that is the Vietnamese, aka Saigon, Cinnamon. Swanson carries it, too, and it is absolutely the most aromatic, best tasting Cinnamon on the planet. It is fantastic stuff. I always keep a one pound bag on hand for all my gourmet culinary uses.
That Vietnamese / Saigon Cinnamon is not the cheapest cinnamon, but it is about half the price of this Ceylon REAL Cinnamon.
For my daily use of generous amounts of Cinnamon, I use this Ceylon Cinnamon. Great product. You can read the reasons for this as I stated above. It has all of the upside with no downside. Works for me.
P.S. I recommend not buying a jar of cinnamon from the spice shelf at the 'market.' Do a little reading, and you will be surprised at what you are most likely to find in that jar. . . . "And it ain't good."

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reviewer0314 The Real Cinnamon
Much more costly than other types of cinnamon, but this is supposed to be the real cinnamon that you want to use for health benefits. The bag came with a small slit it in, so there was cinnamon all over the shipping box and the other products in the box. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by sammy10 Delicious, economical, and since it is Ceylon, you can use larger amounts without worry. I use it in my coffee, and it makes a delicious tea, mixed with real lemon, and Stevia to sweeten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scubamaster07 Good protein shake addition
The product is fresh and of good quality. It mixes well with the usual water or cream liquid and protein powder. The taste is good, as one would expect. I use it twice a day in my protein shakes as a general antioxidant along with organic hemp seeds. It works for me - no complaints.

I love this product. I respect what the company Frontier Natural Products Co-Op stands for. I add 1 tsp to my daily oatmeal. Purchased the product from Swanson when on sell which made it worthwhile. Swanson customer service and shipping was excellent.
