Those Cinnamon-Glazed Nuts

I don't know what it is about those cinnamon-sugar glazed nuts that you see served warm by street vendors or kiosk owners, but my nose always reacts the same way.

For the first 5 seconds, the aroma is sweet and alluring. Then, if I remain in close proximity to the nuts, I find that my preference for the smell quickly vanishes and the aroma actually starts to disgust me.

Clearly, the blogger at MyVeggieWorld doesn't share my reaction.

I wonder if anyone else has this same reaction. I like cinnamon a lot, but is it possible that this is a case of cinnamon overkill?
