    This extract has a very natural flavor. It enhanced the lemon zest and lemon juice in my recipe rather than adding an artificial flavor. I will use it again when I need an extra touch of lemon.

    I don't use this extract for its conventional purpose of baking; i use it as a medium to apply different edible paints to cakes and cake decor. It evaporates fast and doesnt leave any color or real smell behind. It's serving its purpose so far.
    This lemon extract really surprised me from the really lemon aroma to the out standing flavor. It really enhance my lemon pound cake and sweet potato soufflé. I’m thrilled and highly recommend
    when you open up the bottle it smells like you just zested a fresh lemon! Its great and Ill be continuing to get more! great flavor
    I agree with some of the reviewers that this lemon extract is a little on the mild side and I need to use about 1/3 more to get the flavor I want. Even so, the flavor is a very bright and natural lemon flavor. Since the price is low enough I will probably reorder this item when necessary.
    love this lemon extract in addition to lemon juice and zest in our lemon cupcakes and cakes, it does a great job with enhancing the flavor.
    This extract has a very smooth taste. It is not too strong and overbearing like other lemon extract brands. With that being said, you may need to use a little more than with other brands due to its mild flavor. However, once you find your desired amount it makes your desserts quite delicious without the harsh alcohol aftertaste.
    Love the great lemon flavor that is provided when we use the shank's pure lemon extract. A great flavoring for our lemon cream cakes and filling.
    We love Shank's lemon extract and use it in our Blueberry and Lemon Poppyseed Muffins. Thank you Webstaurant Store for providing great variety, pricing and shipping for businesses that have a hard time finding supplies.
    Good product.. smells and tastes great. Clear extract won't change the color of your buttercream etc.. I like these because of the size and price. You cant get 8 oz containers at the supermarket and I bake every week. Would buy again.
    Shanks. Lemon extract is really good and the price is perfect. I love lemon everything and I opened the bottle and smelled it..I was in heaven. It doesn't take a lot of this for a great flavor.
    I'm very disappointed in this lemon extract, it's not strong at all. I can barely smell the lemon flavor even straight from the bottle, and adding several teaspoons to my batch of cookies was unnoticeable. I had to resort to lemon oil which is so much more potent. At least it doesn't taste bad, it just...doesn't really taste like much.
    We appreciate your feedback! We’re sorry this is defective. A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you soon.
    We use this as the main flavoring in our lemon poppyseed muffins and scones and it's wonderful! Not bitter but a small amount will go a long way.
    Great lemon extract. Love the flavor and use it every week in the bakery. We've been very pleased with Shank flavorings as price is always reasonable.
    Lemon extract is used in several recipes. Shank's Pure lemon extract is excellent in a glaze for pound cakes. In addition, a splash of lemon extracts spices up buttercream icing.
    Shank's is a great brand of flavorings and always delivers high quality products. I love the great taste and flavor of the lemon extract. It is tart and great for lemon cookies.
    This pure lemon extract has a wonderful flavor without being to overbearing. It is also a great value compared to the local grocery store prices.
    This extract is great! Since it is pure, it truly gives a nice lemon flavor to cakes, cookies and icings without leaving an alcohol taste. I'll be ordering more once I run out!
    So far I have really enjoyed this extract. Smells wonderful and is a tasty addition to my citrus iced tea recipe. A great price too.
