I learn so much every day. Like during my last trip to Trader Joe’s. I walked in the door and the fragrance of cinnamon tackled me like a giddy child greeting her favorite aunt.
Just inside the door were baskets of brooms – cinnamon brooms. And smaller baskets of cinnamon whisks.
Like any good aunt, I appreciated the exuberance of the aroma and wanted to express my love adequately, which, in this case, meant I bought one of each.
At home, they fill the room with cinnamon goodness, without even taking off the wrapper!
I wasn’t familiar with this item, but am learning the history, uses and significance of the brooms. So far, I’ve read that cinnamon brooms are an autumnal welcome in the home and a good luck charm.
I’m thinking I’ll be back for more before the season’s out.
Thank you, Trader Joe’s!
