Every so often I have used other brands of vanilla for all the usual purposes but I always come back to the predictability of Nielsen-Massey. My uses range from flavoring oatmeal and whipped cream to baked goods. I am also on a limited income so cheaper brands always exert a siren call. Big mistake. N-M is simply the best.

I almost removed a star because when using the plastic bottle the 32 oz. extract comes in, there is no way to avoid the neck and cap getting crudded up with some of the vanilla which seems both a waste and poor design, so here's what I do. I decant a few ounces into a glass cruet (the kind you would put olive oil or vinegar into) and dollup it out a bit at a time. No mess that way.

I think the smell of vanilla is one of the nature's greatest gifts, too. A few drops well applied can make a room smell wonderful.

My first order of Nielsen-Massey was a small bottle to compare it against the brand that we've used since I was a child (McCormick's). I was hesitant at first but had heard really great things about the flavor of the Nielsen-Massey brand.

Over the Thanksgiving Holiday we had several occasions to use Nielsen-Massey in our dishes. After 22 desserts (we have a huge family gathering at Holidays) everyone kept commenting that the desserts were better than they've ever been in the past. No one but me and my mother knew that we'd change only the one ingredient in all of the different pies, meringues, cakes, cookies, cheesecakes and sweet breads.

I am a BIG crème brûlée fan and tried my conventional recipe with the other vanilla extract and there was an amazing flavor difference. Even though the flavor is wonderful with Nielsen Massey Vanilla I still prefer actual vanilla beans to extract in my crème brûlée, but Nielsen Massey will more than suffice in a pinch or with people who aren't quite the fanatic that I am.

Incidentally, I did receive the 32oz bottle as advertised. Not the 4oz as I've seen complained about below.

Handling tiny vanilla extract bottles has become more difficult as my fingers succumb to the indignities of arthritis, so I decided to try a bulk bottle.

I am over the moon satisfied with this purchase. Most importantly, the flavor excels all others I've used over 60 years and it is delightfully smooth. I'm especially sensitive to the taste of alcohol in extracts, yet don't notice it at all in this vanilla. It truly delivers an authentic taste of vanilla.

I've used it in baking, cake and bread and cookies and am pleased to tell you that the flavor enhances the good old standard family recipes in which I've used it. As a lark, I whipped up a batch of Grandma's boiled frosting for some gluten-free chocolate cake and the frosting tasted so fine I could have eaten it by the bowl. Rich, smooth, and vanilla-y. I've only had it for a month but have purposely cooked recipes that call for vanilla so I could make a fair evaluation.

As for the huge bottle and arthritis - I divided the contents into several small pop-cap sealing bottles for storage in my pantry. That way the vanilla remains full flavored fresh right down to the last bottle. With this type of cap there is no drying mess at the top of the bottle. It is sealed from the air and can even be stored lying on its side. With the boriolli bottles I can easily manage the cap, even with arthritis. I'm not a fan of storing liquid foods in plastic bottles anyway, so I rebottled right after receiving the shipment. Then, to use in an 8oz. bottle I have yet to spill, over a month of regular use. However, I do plan to buy a small bottle with the same sort of spout that I use for oils, to eliminate possible spillage from a regular sized mouth. This has become my new standard for vanilla.

Just received this vanilla and was disappointed to see sugar listed in the ingredients. Why does the description of a food product not include the ingredients?

I was looking for Vanilla extract that had no sugar.

I got this b/c it had great reviews but the concentration of flavor just wasn't there. It smells good and tastes good BUT I now use twice as much of this stuff that recipes call for. It just doesn't hold up to McCormicks pure vanilla extract. Not at all. Now I'm stuck with a bloomin quart of this stuff. I should have known better but…
Oh yeah, one more thing, IT ISN'T "PURE VANILLA" the ingredients states it has sugar, and more. See the attached picture. It shows the ingredients.

Yes, the Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla extract is great. For those of you who live near Trader Joes, though, the Trader Joe's brand of Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla is every bit as good - for a fraction of the price.

This is a good product. Unfortunately it comes in a big plastic container. 32 oz is a lot of vanilla extract, according to the label it is supposed to be good for 3 years. I would feel a lot more confident to keep it for 3 years if it came in a glass container, instead of plastic.

Why the single star? Neilsen-Massey vanilla has really good flavor and when I am out of my usual vanilla extract this is the one that I use. Unfortunately, despite being labelled "pure vanilla extract," it isn't, at least not in the traditional sense. The labeling conforms to FDA standards for vanilla extract, but a true vanilla extract has two ingredients (alcohol and vanilla) while this extract has four (Water, Alcohol (35%), Sugar, and Vanilla Bean Extractives).

Why the extra ingredients? Extracting the vanillin from vanilla beans (what gives vanilla extract it's flavor) is a long process and modern manufacturers don't want to spend the time or money waiting for this process to happen naturally. Using a water extraction process for the vanillin is much faster; making the time from bean to bottle go from months (traditional methods) to a matter of days. The addition of alcohol (35% or 70-proof) preserves the extractives and the sugar makes it palatable (in case you should ever try to drink straight vanilla extract).

Conclusions: This is a very good vanilla extract, but, in cutting corners to shorten the manufacturing time, they add ingredients that are unnecessary - in short, sugar. If you can't find a vanilla extract without added sugar or you don't have time to make you own, buy this product. It is the best you are going get based on the ingredients. If you don't care about the ingredients, any extract (except imitation extract) will give your baked goods the same flavor, so feel free to try different brands to find the one you like best.
