In all honesty, this is similar in potency to vanilla extracts I have tried. There are benefits to using the paste, however.

There is not much alcohol in the paste, so it's great to use for a true vanilla flavor without the bitter aftertaste (keep in mind it does contain some extract so I'm guessing there is a minimal amount of alcohol in this). This is certified kosher and is gluten free for anyone who might be interested in this info. Also, the vanilla specks create visual flavor...after all, people taste first with their eyes. I'll admit that I tend to overdo vanilla in my recipes, which is why the paste is so much better for recipes where the amount of liquid does matter (whipping creams, ice creams, creme brulee, etc.).

Be aware that the paste isn't really a paste. It's more like a syrup. I've tried other Lorann products before (mostly their emulsions), so I'm glad that this product meets expectations. It's comparable in price and potency to vanilla extracts, but I'll be using this paste almost exclusively for the reasons mentioned above.

I love vanilla! This brand is pretty good, but the favor is not as intense as the Nielsen-Massey brand and is only a bit cheaper. It is a bit less viscous but doesn't disperse as well; even in very hot water you have to wait and stir a bit. The plastic bottles lend a bit of plastic taste to the product, so I will not purchase again.

The flavor is ok but not mind-blowingly great and how can you claim the product has no sugar when its primary ingredient is Invert Sugar Syrup (a mixture of glucose and fructose). Lord help you if you are diabetic. Read the ingredients .. this is basically sweetened vanilla extract with added vanilla seeds added and thickened with the Gums. It appears that some people really like this stuff but its not for me. I'll stick with the real beans.

I bought this purely to make homemade ice cream but have found that I also really like it in my more delicate baked goods. It leaves nice flecks of vanilla bean and none of that alcohol aftertaste that you get with extracts.

My wife was tired of just using vanilla extract in her recipes, and she was wanting to make some creme brulee, which requires vanilla beans. I don't know about you, but once I priced the cost of vanilla beans I told her that she would never be making creme brulee. I saw this vanilla bean paste on Amazon and decided to give it a shot. The creme brulee came out tasting just as good as at any restaurant. That was two years ago, and I've purchased many bottles of this stuff for my wife. I highly recommend it!

A better description of this product would be "syrup" rather than paste since it is pourable rather than a soft solid you normally equate with a paste.

The substitution rate of this paste is the same as the amount of extract called for in a recipe, so there were no problems converting the amount to use in my recipes. The advantage vanilla bean paste has over the more familiar vanilla extract is that the paste contains vanilla bean seeds that can be attractive when used in things such as icings, cakes, and cookies.

The flavor of the paste is fine, comparable to my usual extracts; I could detect no noticeable difference in flavor of the final product made with the paste over the extract. So far I've used the paste in ice cream, frosting, and cupcakes. With the amount of paste that I used in each product, the tiny amount of bean seeds were barely noticeable in the finished products. You really have to look closely to see them.

One thing I noticed is that it's more difficult to measure and use the paste than extract because it's harder to get all of the paste out of the measuring spoon. It clings to the spoon so that you have to scrape it out, which can be tricky if you're using a small sized measuring spoon.

All of this taken together, unless I'm using a recipe that specifically calls for the paste for visual aesthetic reasons, I'll probably stick to using my favorite extract for most recipes. The extracts are easier to measure and give the same tasting results as the paste with the added benefits of the extract being easier to find and more cost-effective per use.

On the occasions when I do opt for vanilla paste, this LorAnn product is a good quality choice.

Well, yes of course vanilla beans would be even better. But I can't afford them. And this is the next best thing. I went through the 3 jars in no time this summer, making the best vanilla ice cream we ever had. And Oh, the strawberry made with seascape berries. MMmm, good! I bought vanilla paste at Trader Joe's but this is a much superior product in flavor. So I just reordered in time for holiday baking. I have not tried other LorAnn extracts as I usually buy organic. For this great product I make an exception. It delivers the goods to your baked goods and custards.

Wonderful product. I am an avid baker but lately the cost of bean is so high, it is prohibitive to me to use. So I stumbled across this product and decided to give it a try after reading other reviews. Delicious! Fragrant! I am so glad I found it.
