Cloves are flower buds that get dried out and used together as a spice. They look like a miniature, crude scepters. Cloves have the special property of being more dynamically–shaped than the usual round seed. Their stick–like shape enables them to be pierced into other foods.
Cloves are good. They offer a sort of sweet cinnamon influence and are often used in Pumpkin pie and cider.
Cloves became an official snack on June 24th 2012.
