From the Handcrafted Gifts category I received the Prosperity Cinnamon for free to facilitate this review. This is perfect for baking and cooking with. I love cinnamon! It is one of my favorite smells and spices. This cinnamon comes in a gorgeous hand carved cinnamon bark box that smells just as good as its contents. The box and lid has the common Asian character for prosperity carved onto it. There is 3oz. of cinnamon inside the box. It also has a cinnamon stick tied around it with a natural raffia ribbon. Vietnam's renowned sweet cinnamon is a renewable resource collected from the Cassia tree, sold to benefit generations of hard-working families. It is a sweet smelling box with a nice sentiment for anyone who loves cinnamon.
Approximate size: 3" x 3"
