    almond great flavor price cookies flavoring imitation brand bottle extract

    This imitation almond extract is fantastic. I use it in my 7 layer rainbow cookies and in several different cake recipes. Great product at a great price!

    Almond in use.

    Wonderful almond flavor in spritzer cookies! Great price for the 8 ounce bottle. Cheapest price I have found anywhere. Will definitely be ordering again when I run out.

    for being an imitation flavoring and not an extract, I was a little wary at first, but this as a great almond flavor and aroma, and a little goes a long way, so even this smaller bottle will last a very long time. really nice stuff.

    great almond flavor!

    An authentic almond taste, with out the price of almond extract. Makes almond paste taste great and a little goes a long way so its well worth the price.

    Nice almond frosting

    This has a nice almond flavor. It is a great value for the price. We also love that it doesn't turn our icings or pastries a different color.

    Shank's 8 oz. imitation almond is perfect for my protein shake shop. only problem is it is so good I needed a bigger bottle so I switched to the 32 oz.. Tastes fantastic and adds lots of flavor to my shakes. 5 star flavor.

    Comparing it to similar Imitation Almod flavoring like McCormicks brand, this is the same quality with better ingredients than McCormicks. For the price per ounce, its unbeatable. There is only 3 ingredients:Water, Alcohol, and flavoring. No sugar, no preservatives other than the alcohol. Smell and taste is very good. So far, I've used the flavoring in rainbow cookies as well as making an Almond flavored syrup for coffee and other treats. Nothing to really complain about based on the quality, the quantity and the price.

    Love the cost savings of using this imitation almond instead of almond flour. Adds a great almond flavor and is so inexpensive. Great for breads and cookies.

    I use a tad bit of this in my Christmas sugar cookies and they're a HIT! i absolutely love this stuff and I highly recommend purchasing.

    Clear almond is great for white almond sour cream cakes. It can be expensive and there are few brand options in the store, so this is a good value.

    from partycakes bakery Posted on

    This does not have a strong smell so I was afraid it would not flavor well. It was perfect. Not too much over the top. Some almond flavoring can be a bit much. This was perfect.

    from Robin Huston Posted on

    Although I usually prefer to use pure almond extract, sometimes this is simply a more economical option. Decided to give this bran a try and I'm so glad I did. Smells amazing and has such a nice flavor! I use a mix of almond and vanilla extracts in my sugar cookies and go through a lot. This size bottle should last quite a while! I'll definitely purchase this again.

    Shanks is a great brand of flavorings. I started by using their vanilla and then had to try their other products. They all taste great and are great in my baked goods.
