Spice WorldTrivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.
This is not the object of vice,
But merely a flavorful spice.
It comes from the bark of a tree
And is ground for food, savory.
It is the color of rust, tan.
For pumpkin pie, it's a must, man.
Even a dumb automaton
Knows that it's not cinnamon.
Cinnamonum cassia is sold in the United States as "cinnamon", but it is not true cinnamon (Cinnamonum verum). Cassia does have a similar flavor, but isn't as aromatic. Also, the bark from the cinnamon tree curls in from both sides when dried, but cassia only curls from one side.
Most Europeans prefer cinnamon, but in Southern Europe, cassia is preferred.
