Who buys these things?!?

They are the nastiest thing to be waylaid by when rounding a corner in the grocery store. I got my nose hairs shriveled off by some today, before I could get past them to the sodas.

Everyone I know thinks they reek, yet they show up every year. Someone must be buying them.

I hate the smell and taste of Cinnamon, and these damn things don't help.

They're awesome.

Do you actually buy them? If so, what do you do with them, poison the neighbors?

They're so wonderful and Christmassy, who wouldn't love them?

I heard on the news that chewing Cinamon gum while driving is good for nerves or something like that. Maybe I will look for a couple of these to hang from rear view mirror.

If they had REAL cinnamon, they wouldn't be so bad.

They stink. Literally. I was attacked by them over the weekend when I went shopping and have just recovered.

I love them. It's that Christmas smell. Bought a bag a couple of years ago at BBB.

One bag is ok and by no means overpowering. I will admit, they are too strong in stores when dozens of bags are piled together in close proximity.

I like the scent of a whole batch of them. I guess you either love the scent or hate it.

I have no idea what you're talking about.

How about those cinnamon wisk brooms though?

I try not to get too close, they may be whisk brooms, or giant cow turds, rather than pine cones.

For some reason I thought the title said artificial insemination.

Dang, why do they have to put artificial scent on a pine cone? I mean - a pine cone smells great all by itself. If they have to add artificial cinnamon scent to something - yeah, add it to a cow turd or something which does not already smell pleasant by itself. I know - now some wise-ass will respond that cow turds have a natural grassy smell. Go ahead! Moose turds are better and can be used for incense - when I was in Alaska we used moose turds for incense!

And what was the moose doing while you were lighting his turds on fire?

Meh, I think more people should be buying these things especially if they have cats in the house.

Cinamon > Cat Piss Smell

I have never seen them. If Yankee Candle made them maybe you'd change your tune. I know Tball would be first in line.

I rarely actually see them, either. I usually manage to dodge down another aisle, and avoid such a traumatic confrontation. At least they are usually placed on a "seasonal" aisle, that doesn't have essentials on it.

They put them in the foyer area going into the grocery store by me so you can't avoid the smell AND it's concentrated in that little area. Why anyone would buy that crap I don't know.
