Great product, excellent price.

The order was for 25 Indian vanilla beans and 6 bottles the round ones with cork stoppers.
All came as expected. The beans were very fresh vacuumed packaged. Upon splitting them open the contents of the beans was very sticky similar to a paste. Per your recommendation the cheapest Vodka was used to make the vanilla extract. Paid $10.95 for 1.75 liters. Basically nearly all Vodka is distilled grain alcohol which has been diluted with water to about 40% or 80 proof. Using anything more expensive is an absolute waste of money since all the alcohol evaporates during the baking process and therefore contributes nothing to the final product. Used 5 beans for 8 ounces of Vodka. Don't know if your recommendation of letting it steep for 8 weeks is entirely necessary. After only two weeks the extract has taken on a very deep dark color. The aroma is already the equal to the store bought extract and its flavor is a little bit stronger. Yesterday checked the price of vanilla extract in the local super market. 4 ounces is $9.99. Making the extract is very easy. The most difficult part is sending/shopping for the items needed to make it. I plan on giving a bottle of extract as a Christmas present to each of my friends who enjoy baking with high quality ingredients. Nothing on the supermarket shelves comes close to the homemade product. CWH
First time order
by Larry Knight on May 12, 2014
This was my first time ordering from Beanilla. I'm working on making my own extract and vanilla sugar. That aside, they have a customer for life. The price, quality and packaging was outstanding! I highly recommend your next purchase come from here.

Have just placed these in jars to make Indian Vanilla extract.
by Elijah Cardona on Mar 30, 2014
This is my first attempt to make homemade vanilla extract and the beans looked and smelled wonderful. I'm 2 weeks into the process and the stuff has the most amazing scent. Beanilla did a great job of shipping me a product that is going to do an amazing job!

thanks for a speedy delivery. will order again, thanks a million
by Emily Rider on Mar 22, 2014
I received the beans fast and was overwhelmingly suprised how many were in the package. Over 95 beans were in the vacuumed sealed bag. I cut open the packed and was thrilled to see how plump and juicy these pods were. I will be back to purchase more and will send vanilla bean lovers to beanilla. I forgot to mention the best part I was referred by a friend and glad she sent me to beanilla. My kids love the vanilla bean icecream I now get to make having a economical resource to buy vanilla beans from. And they are organic to boot;)!!
by Cory Odegard on Mar 20, 2014
All in all, not disappointed...at all. Great product. The beans were well packaged and moist and pliable when I opened the package. Will order again.

Was looking for high quality vanilla beans but didn't want to pay the exorbitant prices. Stumbled upon beanilla and I am so thankful I did.
First Time Buyer
by Lily Webster on Mar 13, 2014
I was so very pleased with the entire Beanilla site. The variety of options and the amazing price tag were just the beginning. I ordered these Indian vanilla beans as I had only ever tried Madagascar bourbon before. They were light and oaky and they worked amazingly in my custard and rice pudding. It took less than a week for my order to arrive and I was so pleased I placed another order by the weeks end.

I scrape out the seeds, put them with Talenti Vanilla Ice-Cream, and use the discarded pods for making vanilla! Perfect for making my own vanilla!

Sent right away verry pleased
by Alisha Azoulay on Jan 25, 2014
I recently started baking and was in the market for reasonably priced vanilla beans. I wanted to make homemade vanilla extract since it's so expensive at the grocery store. My extract has about 5 weeks before I'll know the quality, but I made a few desserts with the vanilla caviar and it was wonderful. I cannot wait to dig into my vanilla extract!!
by Beverly Sloan on Jan 22, 2014

Incredibly delicious! These darkened the alcohol much faster than all the other beans I've tried so far...

The vanilla beans were easy to order, they arrived within time estimate, and they were in good condition. They were less expensive than those on other sites. So far I have made vanilla extract and Kahlua. Gifts! K.

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.
