Six months and many calls later…I never did receive the bottle that they said they would ship. I’m out the money but they’re out a customer.
Really great, except the price
The Best By Far.
Quite often, even with the better grocery store brands, you get a strange and rather unpleasant after taste. Not so with this stuff! It should also be noted that the flavor here is extremely intense, so slightly smaller amounts are called for in some recipes.
It always seems a shame to me to got to all the trouble of making a cake, or any dish for that matter, and not strive for perfection, giving it up for a relatively few saved cents.
In addition to cooking needs, I have found that if you moisten the tip of your finger just slightly with this product, and rub just a small amount in a small area on the bulb of your bedside lamp, you get the most marvelous and sensual aroma…not overwhelming, but just slightly lingering. Wow!
I really cannot see how you can go wrong here. The price is equivalent to what I have been paying locally and an 8 oz bottle will last quite some time with reasonable use.
I was surprised by the price, but purchased this product anyway… and was even MORE surprised when TWO bottles arrived. I am fairly certain this isn’t a mistake, but rather that the product description fails to mention that the price is for 2 bottles, not just one.
ONE OF THE BEST!
Heaven in a bottle
Best stuff ever!
Why do they add sugar?
Pure vanilla – richest flavored vanilla I’ve found!
The vanilla I used before this one came from a spice store – and it’s a very good vanilla, especially if you buy the double strength – but this vanilla has a little more complexity and I don’t think you have to use twice as much to get double strength. (I don’t believe Nielsen-Massey sells a double strength.) If a recipe calls for a teaspoon, just use a generous teaspoon and you’ll have all the vanilla flavor of a double strength. If you’re concerned about thinning the sauce or whatever it is you’re making, you can also use this company’s vanilla paste, which is syrupy. Just one caveat: that product has real vanilla bean in it, which means whatever you make will have small pieces of vanilla bean in it (like Breyer’s ice cream that is made with vanilla bean in it – the pieces are so small you lose no creaminess in that ice cream or in anything you bake with this product – but you can see them in both of these separate products).
Here’s the bonus, though: this product sells for less than half of the price of the vanilla I used to get at the specialty spice shop, yet I’ve lost none of the rich vanilla flavor. Wahoo! I can’t vouch for any of their other extracts, but the vanilla is amazing!
Nielsen-Massey Vanilla is outstanding
Flavor vs cost
Best Vanilla Extract
The insentive to get baking again, are the really nice cookbooks I’ve been purchasing. In the past the old ones would sit on the shelf gathering dust. Here’s one that I really love and I’m glad I found it, I’ve used it several times, some of the baking recipes (like cookies) have hot spices I would never have thought of using, but I’m now hooked on them! I feel so proud of myself for making some great treats.
I decided to use this Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract after a lot of thought. It’s more expensive than the ones in the supermarket but the reviews were so good, I thought I’d give it a try. An 8oz bottle was huge for me, but is actually cheaper in the long run.
I’ve used it in a few recipes now, and I love it, it doesn’t have that yucky taste like those in the store. The baking has been so successful, that I’m getting through the bottle faster than expected. Next time, I’m going to purchase an even larger bottle!
