People Talk About:vanilla white flavor imitation great extract clear color need taste
I was tasked with creating a "perfectly white" vanilla cake. I was happy to see that this vanilla was available. While it is imitation vanilla, that taste is almost exactly like pure. It is totally clear and it allows me to creat the cake with out the tint of traditional vanilla extrac.

This vanilla extract is terrific. All the flavor of real vanilla extract without the dark color. Use this in your cake mixes and still get that white looking cake and batter everytime!

Shank’s Imitation Vanilla is excellent for creating the perfect dessert. For example, the taste and flavor of a fluffy meringue is delicious with Imitation Vanilla

I use the Shark’s eight ounce bottle of white imitation vanilla on a regular basis. I have an in-house baker and this is his go to vanilla flavoring. He likes that the flavor stays true at high temperatures and has a good shelf life. And I always appreciate the positive sincere feedback from our cake customers. I would recommend.

I always try to use real vanilla when possible but when I need my buttercream to be bright white I use white or clear vanilla. This has a good vanilla flavor without being too artificial tasting.

It is always great to have white imitation vanilla on hand at our bakery. The white vanilla has a great flavor and is perfect for keeping the bright white of our cakes and frostings. Real vanilla or imitation vanilla that is dark, can cause a stained looked in white frostings.

I know people hate on imitation vanilla all the time, but personally, I like how this vanilla smells. It doesn't have the caramelized undertones that the darker vanillas have (imitation or real extract), but for certain applications that's actually a good thing. For one, I think it pairs better with lemon, because it's a cleaner, purer vanilla flavor (dark vanillas smell like caramel or brown sugar to me, in addition to vanilla - great for chocolate chip cookies, but not as ideal for lemony desserts). It reminds me of cream soda vanilla flavor. I wouldn't use it instead of dark vanilla for every application, but for certain ones I definitely prefer it.

The flavor isn't very strong. You need to use quite a bit to get decent flavor. However, this works nicely for royal icing, as it doesn't discolor your icing.
Verena V. Posted on 06/23/2017
Good flavor despite being imitation. It is clear so it won't darken light colored bakery items. large size lasts a long time and retains its flavor.

Shanks imitation vanilla i s a great item! the taste is great even though its only an imitation flavor great value for the price i paid
Raizy R. from sweetart Posted on 03/20/2017
White imitation vanilla is the the best way to use for white cake and this product is good. Flavor of vanilla is intense too. Highly recommend.
Joyce T. from Sugary and Savory Posted on 03/18/2017
3.5 Stars This obviously does not have the complexity of an extract. Shank's Vanilla extract does not have as much alcohol to an extract and is not as astringent. This can be used in cold or hot dishes and liquids where some might be sensitive to the astringent quality of some vanilla extracts. I myself am particularly sensitive to Vanilla Extracts alcohol quantity so this Imitation Vanilla is perfect for my use in adding it to drinks. In baking applications ranging between 250+ F, I really can't tell the difference(taste/smell) compared to extract, however, I use a bit more compared to the extract i typically use as this seems a bit weaker. The only thing I really don't like is the addition of sugar which I knew beforehand
Patrick M. Posted on 02/14/2017
Clear vanilla extract that is perfect when you need pure white frosting but still need to add a vanilla taste. This bottle is inexpensive so give it a shot.
Travis F. from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on 01/29/2017
We have been using several different vanilla flavorings, decided to test this one. Love it. Its imitation, but for icing, I couldnt tell a difference and the clear allows the icing to be white, which really helps with presentation.
William B. from Will's Cinnamon Shop Posted on 12/30/2016
Have been very pleased with the flavor of this vanilla. Love that it is clear! It adds great flavor to buttercream frosting without tinting it.
Kerri R. Posted on 12/26/2016
This vanilla is amazing..it is a bit stronger then normal stuff u get at the store...so u only need half what it calls for..but it makes everuthing taste very yummy
Elisha H. Posted on 12/22/2016
Shank's 8 oz. White Imitation Vanilla #1041012 we make an island tea known as maube, there are many types but a light version taste smoother so you dont want that one to get too dark so we use white vanilla
Juanell P. from PowerQuee Media Posted on 09/26/2016
Overall happy with this product. We use it in buttercream frosting and fresh whipped cream. The clear color was just what we needed to avoid Turing them that off white color.
Julie L. from Whisk Bakery and Coffee Shop Posted on 08/26/2016
This has good flavor and is well priced. It's clear color helps not to tint the whitest of creations. No need for maybe use the white food coloring when using this.
Tonya L. Posted on 08/22/2016
I use this imitation vanilla extract in my baked goods, especially when I don't want brown color of regular vanilla extract tinting my white cakes. Works great for that purpose, and is much cheaper too.
Louise T. Posted on 07/03/2016
good flavor and works well when need to get great tasting icing without wanted to yellow the color of the product. works great with buttercream and royal icings.
Terri R. from Chad Fenner Posted on 05/02/2016
Clear vanilla is great for white cakes. It can be expensive and there are few brand options in the store, so this is a good value.
Kathryn S. from partycakes bakery Posted on 04/28/2016
Used this Shank's 8 oz. White Imitation Vanilla for the white icing on my Red Velvet Cake this weekend and it turned out great and perfect white icing!
Glenda P. from Ruffled Feathers Posted on 04/18/2016
I only use a clean vanilla in my icing. This is a much cheaper alternative to the brand I've been loyal to for years. I will probably buy this product again in the larger size now that I know I like it.
Daniele D. Posted on 04/04/2016
I love using this imitation vanilla specially when making cream cheese frosting because you want to clean white frosting is that a bad tinted brown frosting if you were to use pure vanilla extract so it comes in handy when you need back clean white frosting.
Marcia D. from MARCIA CATERING SERVICE Posted on 02/13/2016
I love this vanilla for all my white icings and white cake flavor needs. The flavor is very nice without being chemically! You can't beat the price!
Yvonne L. Posted on 11/03/2015
This white immitaion vanilla good to use when i making marshmallow fondant so since this clear want does not affect the color of my white color fondant
Alexander I. from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on 10/01/2015
this is the classic taste of clear vanilla - key to classic recipes and baked goods where the clear color is key. it's got that flavor that is associated with childhood and desserts that need that taste profile benefit from it!
Wendy R. Posted on 06/25/2015
Although nothing can beat pure vanilla extract, this is a very good brand of imitation vanilla! As others had stated, I keep imitation vanilla for times when I need my butter cream to be really white. This adds a nice flavor but no color. Great price too. Would buy again!
Laura N. from Baked Bliss by Laura Posted on 05/19/2015
Really good vanilla flavor without adding darker color to cakes and icings. Ideal when you want to get a really pure white cake or frosting.
Sussett S. from S3 Confections Posted on 05/14/2015
Shanks imitation white vanilla is a great buy! Great price great quality. It is perfect for flavoring white buttercream frosting so you keep that pure look and still have the vanilla taste
Elle R. from Zest Posted on 04/28/2015
Great vanilla!! For not wanting to add color to frostings. Helps me achieve pure white color for my buttercream. I will buy again in the future.
Rachel L. Posted on 04/13/2015
