Please be aware that we had several 8th grade students participate in the Cinnamon Challenge at school.
The Cinnamon challenge is a competition (a game) in which a person attempts to eat or swallow a spoonful of ground cinnamon without drinking anything. While the challenge appears to be very simple and easy, it is actually very difficult because the cinnamon quickly dries out the mouth, making it very prohibitive to swallow.
Officer Lehman reported to me that this behavior can be dangerous and even deadly. If you know of any students who are doing this please let me know and thanks so much for help with this!
