Very nice beans. Good price.

This was my first time to buy vanilla beans. I am making homemade vanilla flavoring. The vanilla beans smelled wonderful and were packaged to keep them fresh.
by Carol Quakenbush on Nov 21, 2013
I purchased a package of Indian Vanilla beans that smelled so good when I opened it up!!! The beans were exactly as described on the website and were exactly what I needed to make my homemade vanilla flavoring for Christmas gifts.
by Debra Roe on Nov 20, 2013
Excellent quality, and very well sealed in package. They made my vodka turn warm brown very after putting them in. Thank you for your high stock of beans.

They arrived quickly and they were fresh and plump.

These vanilla beans were the best I've ever had and the cheapest too. They smell amazing, are so plump and are beautiful. I can't wait to taste the vanilla I'm making with them. Thanks!

fabulous product! would definitely buy from beanilla again, and i recommend beanilla to all friends/family interested in buying vanilla beans.
2nd time ordering
by Tammy Kershner on Oct 19, 2013
I ordered from Beanilla before and had such a wonderful experience that I ordered again. The beans are wonderful and my vanilla turns out perfectly every time. I like that I can create my own vanilla with the beans I buy. I love the variety.
by Rosemarie Beall on Oct 14, 2013
great service, wonderfully sealed.
OMG INDIAN VANILLA
by anna blake on Oct 4, 2013
this is the first time using indian vanilla beans and they are fantastic! i cannot wait to do some holiday baking with them :)
by Nicolette Barnes on Sep 26, 2013
I received my order in 2 weeks of placement. This is typical for my online orders, so I was happy with speed of delivery. All items were received in perfect condition. The beans smell wonderful, and a currently brewing in alcohol. I am very satisfied with my purchase and will come back to Beanilla for future orders!
by William Martinez on Sep 26, 2013
Great flavor. Smoky and tobaccoy. Great flavor. Be coming back to try a different flavor.
Exactly what I wanted
by Lena Berchielli on Sep 25, 2013
These Indian vanilla beans are my absolute favorite, just what I was hoping for. These beans are exactly as described. They are what I think of when I think of a traditional vanilla bean. Very prompt shipping too.
Indian Vanilla Beans
by Mark Seerey on Sep 25, 2013
Great tasting. Used in creme brulee.
by Margaret Thele on Sep 25, 2013
Really excited about these. Used two for vanilla pear jam and produced alovely flavor. Made my own extract and there were thousands of seeds in very fresh, fat pods, beautiful color and aroma!
good for bakiing
by Edward McCarthy on Sep 6, 2013
strong flavor notes .
I'm a fan!
by Jan Zmuda on Aug 28, 2013
This is my first time purchasing, and first time at making vanilla extract. I bought a 10-pack of Madagascar, and 5-packs of both India and Indonesian beans. I placed the order by phone - GREAT customer service and very speedy delivery of product (FREE shipping too!). So I am both excited that i placed the order and VERY pleased with the service. Here's where things get even better -
After I placed my order I sat down and changed my plans and decided to make two different extracts - one using bourbon and the other using vodka - to see how dramatic the differences would be. But since I wanted to use the exact same blend I realized I needed more beans. I happened to be on another "generic shopping site" that sells everything, and sure enough they had several vendors selling vanilla beans. Since I was already buying some books and CD's I added some vanilla beans to my order (also free shipping.)
BOY WAS I SURPRISED - I got the packs of beans from this other vendor and while they were cheaper, they were also half as biig! The Beanilla beans were HUGE - the "brand X" beans were much shorter and less then half as thick.
I have already bookmarked Beanilla as the ONLY vendor for vanilla bean purchases!
Now all I have to do is wait a few more months to try my extracts!
by Francine Crocker on Aug 24, 2013

Ordered the Madagascar, Indian, Ugandan and Tongan beans, these were unquestionably the least impressive. Drier and less flexible beans with less caviar per bean than any of the others. Significantly less powerful aroma and a less complex flavour. An interesting comparison, but I won't buy these again.
Hmmmm...not my favorite
by Elizabeth Oertel on Aug 21, 2013
The beans I received were not pretty, smelled swell and will make fine extract/sugar I think, but they were really kind of ugly. Sorry to say. Beanilla did replace them w/lovely Ugandan beans very quickly - really, Beanilla is the most wonderful company to do business with, quite a pleasure. So while these beans were not so great - Beanilla made everything good! :)
by DENISE FITCH on Aug 16, 2013
First time trying this product. Everything I have ever purchased from Beanilla has been exceptional quality & flavor so this hopefully will be as well.
A Bean of paradise
by Ryan J McCarty on Aug 15, 2013
These Indian vanilla beans are great. The vacuum seal packaging held in all the dark aromas and rich flavors.
by Jenney Liew on Jun 16, 2013
i had a total of 77 beans in a half-pound package (was estimated to be approx. 50 beans). I guess that showed how light they were considering their length ( average of 7.5 inches). Most of the beans were quite dry. Some of them were really flat. A few of them even snapped when i tried bending them. As i live very far away from the US , it's not worthwhile for me to return the merchandise. I'm disappointed that the vanilla beans that i'd been looking forward to so much, didn't turn out to be like what the other customers claimed, "plump & pliable". However, the prompt response from the sales department is commendable!
Big Bang for your Buck
by Kerry Johnson on May 30, 2013
These vanilla beans aren't as moist as the Tahitian ones but they do have a lot of seeds in them. I mixed them with the Tahitian beans to make vanilla. Good price and good to use when I bake.
Very moist and plump.
by Joseph Kiszka on May 20, 2013

Indian vanilla beans
by Susan Steadle-Phillips on Mar 29, 2013
I ordered a half pound of these value beans and had enough to share with several of my friends and still have 59 beans in a beautiful old tequila bottle with three cups of vodka - man, this is going to be some strong extract when it is done (and with that many beans, it won't take long!). Highly recommended.
by frank tola on Mar 19, 2013
Great shipping and great quality bar none.
by Alexander R LeBlanc on Mar 6, 2013
These beans were beautiful and flavorful, I don't mind the premium price, because it's worth every penny
by Andrea Snyder on Feb 20, 2013
Exactly what I was looking for to make vanilla extract!
by Patricia Veitch on Jan 4, 2013

vanilla is a blessing for women
by Rochelle Brisson on Dec 29, 2012
Thanks! Will purchase from again.
by Doug Richardson on Dec 28, 2012
Overall I was not very satisfied. Some of the beans were full of seeds others were completely dried out. The outer shell was completely dry on most of the beans. The company did replace my beans without me even asking for it, so overall I am satisfied. Beanilla is an excellent company; fantastic service...

very moist and plump beans
by Richard Huggins on Nov 15, 2012
As always, I.couldnt be happier with my purchase of Indian vanilla bean pods. The extract I am making with these beans already smells incredible!
by Fred Howe on Oct 28, 2012
Hard to compare & judge- this is my first purchase of vanilla beans.
by Karen Lewis on Oct 17, 2012
The beans look beautiful and smell great, haven't used them yet. Love the vanilla jars but they seem a bit fragile. I buy very high quality French and Italian glass and was a bit worried about using these vanilla storage jars but I'm giving them a whirl.
by Jill Mahoney on Sep 25, 2012
I love these beans! My house smells wonderful and I can't wait to use the vanilla extract!
by Keenan Poore on Sep 24, 2012
Love the service and product from Beanilla. This is our source for vanilla beans to make our own vanilla extract. We can always depend on good quality and speed when ordering. Thanks
by Sunny Miller-O'Connor on Sep 17, 2012
True vanilla flavor that is mild enough to use with the delicate flavors of many desserts. Very plump and fresh. It was fantastic in the peach ice cream we made this weekend! We will definitely buy these again. :)
I love the variety.
by Michele Duer on Sep 15, 2012
The smoky smell and I will will buy again!
by Jennifer McGowan on Aug 29, 2012
It was so exciting receiving our ordered Indian Vanilla Beans. I am using them to make our own vanilla extract as well as other homemade goodies. The quality is amazing and the aroma is delectable. I can't wait for the extract to be at its done point as this will make a perfect vanilla for our baking projects.
by Debra pero on Aug 23, 2012

The order delivery was delayed, but this was due to US-Canada border delays.
