It’s dangerous. And ludicrous, too.
The cinnamon challenge has been ranging around the Internet for the past few years, and been around way longer than that. But lately has wound up in the headlines because of reported cases of people, mostly kids, being sent to the hospital.
What’s the cinnamon challenge? It’s a dare that’s pretty much gone viral online. The dare is to eat a spoonful of the dusty spice without sipping water or any other liquid. Even if you did drink water, cinnamon is one spice that doesn’t dissolve in the conventional sense, like say, salt.
The problem? Choking. Throwing up. Even seizures. Cinnamon, like most spices, isn’t meant to be eaten by the spoonful. But kids will be kids, and dares are, well, dares. Thousands of videos on YouTube attest to this.
