Add a vanilla flavor to your cakes, cookies, and pastries using this Shank's 1 gallon imitation vanilla. It's also great for making sauces and frostings! Featuring a great, real-tasting vanilla flavor, imitation vanilla is made using artificial flavorings. Substitute this imitation vanilla for your regular vanilla extract and make delectable, tantalizing treats that your customers won't be able to resist!

Shank's Extracts, Inc. was founded in 1899, initially creating flavorings to help make medicines taste better. Expanding their company and label through the years, their flavors, extracts, and food colorings are sold in major grocery chains across the Northeastern and Midwestern U.S. Today, their primary product remains Shank's Compound Flavoring of Vanilla Bean, and they continue to make quality products for both retail and industrial applications.

It generally takes twice as much imitation vanilla to match the strength and taste of pure vanilla.

    vanilla imitation great pure gallons recipes fine nice price products

    This brand is good. For imitation. I prefer and normally use pure vanilla extract. But this does not have a super sweet artificial taste you would expect.

    We like this vanilla very well. We have had to change to,imitation vanilla due to the large increase in the price of the pure vanilla.

    Great price and great product. We have purchased in the past and line this vanilla. It's as good or better than any available from food vendors.

    After searching for affordable imitation vanilla, I was thrilled with this product. Not watered down, and adds the right amount of vanilla flavoring to any recipe.

    Shank's Imitation Vanilla is great. We use this in several of our recipes at the bakery. Love that it's not very light in colored like other imitation vanilla I have purchased before... Tells me it's made with great quality ingredients. I'm about order a couple of gallons soon.

    This is the only vanilla that we use at our cupcake shop. It has a rich vanilla flavor and is affordably priced when compared to similar products.

    This vanilla is standard, run of the mill, imitation vanilla. Works fine for baking, but there must have been some confusion at the warehouse, because we were once sent a gallon of "egg yellow shade" instead of vanilla. Overall, we're fairly happy with the product.

    Not bad vanilla. I bought this blind, since there were no reviews. I've used these in my cakes and have yet to be dissapointed. It's not the strongest, but it's imitation, not pure. Just add more than needed and you'll be fine.
