Customer Reviews


This was a great find, as orange extract is not one of the easiest extracts to find. I have used this extract in several recipes, and it gave each of my recipes, a very natural citrus essence.

Christina C. from A Lil' Sumpin' Special on 02/17/2021

Love this product! Its great for my homemade cakes and desserts. I've brought several items from this brand. I will be reordering more of this soon.

Ranisha S. from Tasty Eats By Nini on 02/02/2021

This is by far the best Orange flavoring I have used, it's not thick and gel type like others on the market. This orange extract makes my Orange Cream Cheese icing amazing. nd it comes in a large bottle so that you don't have to order every time you turn around. you won't be sorry if you purchase this item

Misti S. from Buttercream Bakery on 10/24/2020

Now they we discovered Shanks extract , it’s all we use. The flavors are so crisp and clean. I use the orange in my orange cupcakes as well as our smoothies.

Regina G. from Delicious Delights LLC on 04/28/2020

Shank's is definitely a good extract, no matter what flavor you need. Always top quality & you don't need to use much to acquire the desired taste!

Mary B. from Confectionary Imaging, LLC on 03/12/2020

The Shanks Pure Orange Extract has a great citrus taste. I love it in my royal icing for a snappy flavor! I love that it is clear also!

Glenda P. on 02/17/2020

Its perfect for baking, it isnt an overpowering taste like most and it seems to last forever because you dont need much in your recipes

Patrick W. from Kingsize Bakery on 08/13/2019

I'm so pleased with the Shanks lemon extract. It works very well with baking cakes and other lemon desserts. I would definitely like to try more flavors with this brand.

Latoya H. from BERRYLICIOUS on 07/05/2019

This is hands down one of the best orange extracts on the market. It's the same price as a small 2 oz bottle I typically buy from Watkins AND it doesn't have that cheap alcohol smell or taste to it. I use it in my royal icing and find it is a nice complement to the cookie without being overpowering.

Sarah G. from Sugar & Spice Bakery on 03/27/2019

We been buying this product for a long time already. Some other brands of orange extracts tend to have a lot of alcohol but not this brand. We bake with it and get a lot of complements about the aroma and flavor of our cookies. Very happy with this product....

Oscar B. from Tienda Y Pasteleria LA FE on 01/31/2019

Use this flavor everyday. Tasted really nice in our cranberry/orange bread for a Christmas. Also use in our orange ginger cakes. Great size, great price, good flavor.

Casandra M. from Simply Southern Bakery on 12/29/2018

Good but needed more that using other companies, but for price and the fact that another company doesn't go thru food distributors anymore had to have

Tabatha B. from Tabatha Family Tree on 12/02/2018

Orange flavor does amazing things to my cream cheese frosting. I absolutely love it. All i could ever find was the small bottle. I love webstrauntstore.

Zonita B. from A Slice Of Heaven on 11/24/2018

Eva L. on 07/22/2018

Darien M. on 06/22/2018

love using this extract in our orange creamsicle cakes, cake pops and cupcakes. used in addition to orange juice and orange zest, this creates one of our best selling cupcakes.

Theresa W. on 06/02/2018

A nice quality orange extract that is phenomenal. Love the fresh citrus touch it adds to our glazes and fillings. Makes the best orange scones.

Rich M. from Round Bagel on 03/14/2018

Great flavor packed into this 8oz jar. Shank's extracts are always perfect for my recipes. Arrived in my shipment protected against spillage. This one is my go to for taste.

Pamela B. from Mama B's Baked on 03/06/2018

We use these bottles of orange extract for flavoring frostings and glazes. It's concentrated so it goes far and since it's pure and natural it doesn't taste like artificial flavoring.

Meagan B. from Crust Vegan Bakery on 01/06/2018

We use this orange extract in our jumbo creamsicle muffins that we make and they are one of the most popular muffins in our coffee shop. Great flavor that is sweet and not bitter.

David A. from The Homestead on 12/30/2017


Barbara J. on 12/26/2017

This natural orange extract smells amazing! More importantly, it tastes amazing!! It doesn't smell or taste chemically or harsh as some other brands. I would definitely get it again!

Hollin G. on 12/15/2017

Shank's is a great brand of flavorings and always delivers high quality products. I love the great taste and flavor of the orange extract. It is wonderful for making orange cream cakes.

Jo P. on 10/24/2017

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.

Tanya K. from Krumm's Baking Co on 08/29/2017

I put a few tablespoons of this treat in our signature crock pot oatmeal and never saw it disappear so fast!!! Sweet, but not too sweet!!!

Jason M. on 03/30/2017

This has a wonderful orange smell and flavor. The clear color doesn't change the color of the foods. It's a good product and the price is great.

Tonya L. on 11/25/2016

Use this in my orange cream homemade ice cream. Excellent flavor and is all natural. Came well sealed for shipping no leaking. Very pleased with this extract.

Kathleen T. from The Brown Cow Dairy LLC on 10/12/2016

The secret ingredient in my orange beef & orange chicken recipes. Well…I guess its no longer a secret…LOL! It has a great flavor, but be careful to use in small amounts or the orange flavor will take over.

Ronald P. on 08/11/2016

Pure orange extract finally a good quality orange extract. Very pungent and flavor is beyond what I expected. I am very impressed with this line.

Robertina T. from Tina's Recipes on 06/27/2016

have successfully used this product for cakes and icings to enhance the flavor profile with much success.would recommend to others as well as repurchase again.

Christopher B. from Quinipet Camp And Retreat on 06/06/2016

I make an orange cake with mandarin oranges in it, and I use this orange extract too. It smells great and adds a great orange flavor to my cake.

Jennie H. from Jennie's Cake Creations on 05/17/2016

I make orange-covered chocolate fudge for my candy business-a LOT of it-and Shank's Orange Extract is a great quality extract at a great price. Also, it is in a large size, which means I won't have to shop as often for it. If I purchased the "other" brand orange extract at my local grocery store in their tiny little bottle, my costs would go WAY UP. I was very glad to see that Webstaurant had this item available!

Amy W. from Bee's Envy Confections on 03/09/2016

As a huge fan of citrus flavors, this orange extract was the perfect addition to my pound cake recipe. Not only is it deliciously aromatic, but one can also taste the orange flavor. This extract also goes well with chocolate ganache for truffles or for pouring over a cake. What's more is that you can't beat the price. I will be ordering this again in the future.

Aurelia A. from Blissful Confections on 03/09/2016

I bought this to add some flavor to my drink, but it's just not right. It just tastes like alcohol, nothing like orange. I wanted more authentic taste in my drink, so I bought this in place of orange syrup. However, the worst choice I had made.

Hana W. on 02/11/2016

We appreciate your review, Hana! If you are looking for a different recommended flavor to try, please contact our Customer Solutions team.

I have used this Orange Extract in cakes and cupcakes to provide a citrus taste. Great when trying to create an old fashion orange cream flavor.

Robin H. from Sweet Changes on 12/01/2015

I bought this pure orange extract for making cakes and adding a few drops to my fudge brownies. The secret is out now, and this extract is wonderful!

Geraldine C. on 05/16/2015

I purchased this orange extract to flavor my cakes or ricotta pie and cookies great little bulk size bottle works and tastes great would buy again

Stella L. on 03/03/2015

Orange muffins are the best, but sometimes the orange flavoring can be too artificial. This is a very natural tasting extract that makes the muffins taste amazing.
