Looking for cinnamon chips [HOU]
Hey all. I've been looking everywhere for cinnamon chips for baking -- they're like chocolate chips, but cinnamon (duh). I think Hershey's makes them, and King Arnold Baking Co. I've checked my local Kroger and Randall's, Whole Foods, and Central Market, nada. Has anyone bought them here, or can recommend a good place to get them online? Do they even exist, or are they a tasty figment of my imagination?? Thanks!
I often have found specialty items like that at candy-making-supplies and baking-supplies stores. Most cities have these specialty stores and they carry all sorts of difficult-to-find items. I haven't had the need for any since I moved to Houston, but that's where I'd start. I'd do something so old-fashioned as to find a Yellow Pages book (do they still have those?) and look under "candy-making supplies" and "baking supplies." It's been my experience that there are home hobbyists as well as professional bakers and candy-makers that keep those stores hopping.
Well, okay, so never mind...
Just out of curiosity, I telephoned several of the local candy/cake-supplies stores.
None of them carry cinnamon chips. I asked if they had ever had anyone else ask, and they each said, "No, you're the first."
It's starting to look like mail order is going to be your only option.
