    vanilla great price pure extract taste brands buy flavor love

    I put a splash of vanilla in so many different things I cook and bake. I go through it so fast so I always buy larger sizes. This is the best deal!

    Love this vanilla extract! I think it's always worth it to buy the real deal instead of that imitation stuff. Fair price for the amount you get. Tastes very good.

    I do a lot of baking at home. This vanilla is very strong, I find I don't need to use as much as some other name-brand and it is a great value inn the 16 oz. bottle.

    I purchased this for home use. And I just used it for the first time today. And it is better than the expensive brands I was buying at my local store. I will definitely recommend it.

    I have been baking for several years and am always looking for a real vanilla extract. This is one of the best I have tried. I generally use a little more than called for in recipes because I like a true vanilla taste and this has it.

    Delicious vanilla, and the price is great! I can tell no difference between this and other popular brands when it comes to cakes and cookies. Would purchase again.

    Needed bulk vanilla but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for it. I'm so happy that I found this! Tastes great too!

    Another kitchen must have, that I needed. This was a decent price compared to my food distributor who only had gallons. I added this to a small wares order and shipping did not increase

    I have used this in my cakes and brownies. It tastes and smells good. You are getting a great value at this size. I pay way too much at the store!

    Shanks premium pure vanilla extract is a great buy! I love that it comes in a large bottle since I use up a lot when baking...

    The taste of this vanilla is just as good as any you might buy in the store. You can't beat the price and the amount of product you receive. Great for bakers.

    This vanilla is as good as it gets. It imparts a warm, smooth flavor with a tiny hint of smokiness. It has no additives. It is all vanilla.

    This vanilla extract adds a great taste to my cookies, cakes and even oatmeal. The price is unbeatable for such a large quantity, and I love the convenience of always having enough on hand.

    I like to cook with natural products which is what attracted me to try this product. This extract has a good flavor and is priced right. I would buy it again.

    Shank's pure vanilla extract works just as well as the premium name brand I had been using before, and this price can not be matched elsewhere. The flavor is excellent!

    When it comes to baking pure vanilla is he only way to go. I love the taste of pure vanilla, but the price can be high. This is a great pure vanilla at low cost.

    This is top notch vanilla and it really can't be beat. The price for such a large amount of pure extract is unbeatable. It blows away anything else you are going to find.

    When looking for vanilla, you want the real thing. No artificial vanilla. This vanilla is an excellent buy. A 16 ounce bottle will provide for many wonderful for our ice cream. You can purchase very expensive vanilla, but it will not be any better.

    Simply a great value for a great product. This Premium Pure Vanilla Extract gives my baked goods a delicious vanilla taste and it's super affordable.

    it is a little bit strong and it leave an after taste in my food. use half of the required amount to get the most benefit out of it but the after taste it remain,

    Slightly harsher with a bit more of an alcohol smell than the high end brand I was using, but very good for the price and comparable to what you would get at the grocery store.

    from Southern Girl Soapery Posted on

    Nice addition to our sugar cookie icing. Just a bit mixed with milk and powdered sugar with color as desired.

    A very good value. This cost much less than the small bottles available in grocery stores and is a high quality product. I highly recommend it to anyone who bakes or makes candy a lot.

    Excellent flavor, still have a bit left as I don't find I need to use a much as the other brands. I am anxious to try the Shank's Vanilla paste. Now that I have worked with Webrestraunt spices, I find them of a higher quality and better value than the retail brands. Will be buying again.

    from Green Zone B & G Posted on

    Good quality. Pure (not imitation) vanilla extract at a fraction of what you would pay at a local store. A must have for baking and breakfast items.
