Cinnamon toothpicks are wooden toothpicks, round with one or two pointed ends, that have been soaked in oleoresin of cinnamon or cinnamon extract, then dried. Sometimes sweeteners and other flavoring ingredients are added. The wooden toothpicks used in America are typically cut from birch wood. Bamboo toothpicks are becoming increasingly popular due to its short growth cycle and carbon footprint reduction.
The toothpicks can be used to aid in smoking cessation, to curb snacking between meals, as a breath freshener or – as a normal toothpick – to remove particles of food between teeth.
Cinnamon flavored toothpicks are typically sold in small packages of 6 to 15 pieces. Sold in plastic tubes.
