I have left an image on this product's profile page comparing what I have received from this company and what normal vanilla look like.
How I wish I could also share the ODOR this product reeked of. When I opened the package, the first thing I noticed was how plump and light-ish brown the beans were. It was not normal.
Then as soon as I opened the vacuum sealed pouch, instead of smelling vanilla, I was hit by an odor I would associate with the DENTIST or medical clinic. The beans were soaked in some compound that made them look fatter and more importantly, it made them heavier. In fact, these beans were not plump, they were bloated.
This poses a huge concern for me because due to this seller's greed and carelessness, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT CHEMICAL OR PRESERVATIVE they've used and it may cause unaware buyers a lot of HARM. I asked my husband to smell the beans and he frowned and asked me if it was soaked in formaldehyde. I am almost tempted to take them to a laboratory to find out what exactly were used. But for now, I ask that you refrain from buying these.
I also doubt that reviews are legitimate. Reviews can be bought. However for me, money is inferior to doing the right thing. I don't care if people vote down my truthful review as long as I could prevent others from getting ripped off or worse, get sick.
The fragrance is overpowering, and the shipment comes with a nice recipe for creme brulee. Don't throw away your used vanilla pods! Save them to flavor your sugar.
I am still just as pleased with these beans as I was when I first got them. After 3 months of maturation, my homemade vanilla extract is excellent! Dark brown and slightly "syrupy" and it will only get better with age. Total price of the beans used in the extract (22 whole beans, split ~$10.00) and the alcohol (smirnoff vodka750 ml. ~$9.00) just under $20.00 produced an entire quart/32 ouces of fantastic extract and seeing as the "pure" vanilla extract in my grocery is about $6.00 per 2 oz. bottle the savings is tremendous. I would still be saving a fair amount if I purchased vanilla in bulk (like at Costco.) It is simply a win-win.
