Cooks Illustrated (an unbiased, no ads cooking/baking periodical) recently tested various vanilla extracts (real and imitation) and talked a lot about how they are both made.

In the end, they rated this Baker's Imitation Vanilla their favorite and #1 choice. We purchased one a couple days ago (93 cents and shipped free and arrived first thing the next morning...I love Amazon!), and made a yellow vanilla cake. Not only did this vanilla have a great smell, but the cake tasted great. We recently purchased (for $26) the Costco real Vanilla Extract and it smelled TERRIBLE. We took it back. I'll take 93 cents any day for a bottle of vanilla flavoring.

I use this to make pancakes and it's fine but for stuff like custard where the flavor of the vanilla would be more obvious I would use the real vanilla extract.

That's what i was going to post.. Is this a deal. Or just the regular price now lol

This is also imitation flavoring and not pure extract. Which is why it is so cheap. Extract is the expensive stuff.

While most people cant detect a difference in baked goods. If your actually looking for extract this is not it.

So, Which Vanilla Should You Buy?

Quote :
Well, it's complicated. In a head-to-head battle between our top-rated imitation vanilla product, Baker's, and our top-rated pure extract, Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract, the imitation product won both times. Even our editor in chief, Dan Souza (yes, I'm throwing you under the bus, Dan), came out of the cake tasting and said, "Who knew? I like imitation vanilla." But Simply Organic was still good, as were many of the other pure extracts. Like taste in music, it's a personal choice. Do you want to listen to a soloist or a symphony? Some people will never buy an imitation vanilla because it's made from petroleum, because it's not "real," because it's not as interesting or complex, or because they want to support small farmers. Others simply cannot justify the price of pure vanilla extract, and that's fair, too. And still others, perhaps the data-driven among us, will purchase solely based on the rankings from our blind taste tests. For that reason, we've named two winners: Baker's Imitation Vanilla Flavor ($0.98 for 8 fluid ounces) is our winning imitation vanilla product, and Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract ($12.99 for 4 fluid ounces) is our winning pure vanilla extract. Which team are you on?

I am a professional baker and I use nothing but imitation vanilla. It taste as good or almost as good as pure extract, so all you snobs out there that are going to post that the pure vanilla extract is worth 20x the cost of the imitation, I defy you to tell the difference between two cakes that have a couple of teaspoons of imitation vs. pure extract.


Buying Tip: Add two of these to your cart and choose no rush shipping for the $1 digital credit.

imho, until vanilla prices go down you should save the real stuff for low temp things like custard, chocolate candies, ice cream, etc.

anything that's baked to a high temp is going to evaporate off a lot of the volatile compounds that you're paying extra for so you might as well just use the synthetic vanillin.
