Personally, I really believe that the EU is a good thing in general. The negativity about the EU seems to be mostly media spin, sponsored by local
government/companies/corporations, who realise that the EU is harder for them to manipulate, so they are trying to manipulate the sheep.. I mean,
people, to have a negative view of the EU, and sadly they are being somewhat successful, as the existence of this very thread attests to.
In this case the Danish themselves, brought this rule in. Its not a ban on cinnamon, as has already been pointed out, but a ban on a cheaper cinnamon
substitute (cassia). To add to the confusion, this cinnamon substitute is also generally called "cinnamon", but it's not real cinnamon.
Given that I've not been able to find the copytext of the actual EU directive, I can't say for certain, but I wouldn't be suprised if its not a
ban at all, just a limit on the maximum amount of cassia they can use.
