  1. Vanilla extract beginner

    by Adrean Kapeliela on Mar 31, 2014

    I have limited experience with vanilla beans of any variety. I have purchased the grade B Madagascar beans before for making vanilla extract and wanted to try another variety. While the Tongan beans were slightly more plump, I don't think the quality has made a difference when making vanilla extract. The taste difference is yet to be determined since my Tongan vanilla beans are not done steeping. I am pleased with my order experience with Beanilla and will continue to order from them in the future to enjoy new vanilla flavor experiments. I could wish for more grade B options in more varieties, to cut on cost for simply making vanilla extract- Just a suggestion. I rated the packaging as a four because when I cut open the mailing envelope I also ended up cutting through the vacuum package- The reason for this was not due to my lack of carefulness (I cut very close to the edge) but as a result of how close the vacuum sealed package edge was cut by the packager... this small edge was caught in the sticky part of the mailing envelope and because there was so little sealed area the package was no longer air tight. It wasn't a huge deal, but I hadn't anticipated starting my vanilla so soon and was required to do so since it was cut open.
  2. Tongan beans

    by Jennifer Harrison on Mar 21, 2014

    Wonderful, soft beans. Slender and juicy. I started a batch in some light Cruzon rum. The aroma builds with each week.
  3. Tongan Beans

    by Karol Tymecki on Mar 17, 2014

    Working with different beans in making vanilla extract.
  4. Good Quality.

    by patricia blanco on Mar 7, 2014

    Delicious beans and good price. Thanks.
  5. My favorite

    by LaCressa Clardy on Mar 1, 2014

    These were my favorite over the Mexican, tahitian and Madagascar. If they were cheaper I would have ordered a bunch. Tons of seeds, more than the Madagascar. The perfect flavor balance, a mix of all the bean flavors in one. Such a yummy bean!
  6. Impressive

    by Chantel Lamb on Feb 2, 2014

    I placed quite a large order so I could taste and see the difference. These were amazing. Great in every way.

    by Cindy Workman on Jan 10, 2014

    Fast shipping. Well packaged. Nice looking vanilla beans. Made a great Vanilla extract for cooking! Also used in my homemade soaps, lotions and lip balms.

    by LuAnn Smith on Aug 28, 2013

    Bought a Tonga bean to make the raspberry grand marnier jam that was featured on here. Bean was very moist and I'm looking forward to trying the jam on some scones.
  25. Among the best

    by Christopher McCue on Aug 24, 2013

    Ordered the Madagascar, Indian, Ugandan and Tongan beans, these and the Ugandan were the best of the bunch. Plump, succulent and flexible beans with slightly oily caviar and incredibly rich aroma.
  26. Great Bean

    by Mona Kornegay on Aug 22, 2013

    The Tonga bean is my second favorite, just behind the Tahitian.
  27. Missed Expectations

    by Gregg Boore on Jul 7, 2013

    I thought these would be as good as Tahitian. They are good but not really Tahitian quality or taste.
  28. Tonga bean

    by Joseph Bahnam on Jun 20, 2013

    Very fresh bean but did not have much texture.
  29. I haven't had a chance to try them in baking yet, but they look good and smell great.

    by Wendy Boyes on Apr 23, 2013

    Haven't tried these particular beans out in any baking/cooking yet, but they look and smell amazing. They arrived promptly and in great condition. Thanks for the affordable shipping rate to Canada.

  35. Great!

    by Sandra Motiwalla on Jan 7, 2013

    It's my second time buying from fast problem at all. I like the company a lot. First time, I bought themadagascar vanilla beans which I liked it very much. This tome I chose to give a try Tonka beans and I found very interesting. I'm a huge fan and user of vanilla beans since I don't use processed sugar. Plus the amazing health benefits. Great quality.
  36. seem perfect

    by sadie benson on Dec 28, 2012

    We started making vanilla with these beans 2 days ago. I guess we can't really judge quality of taste until that's done in a couple of months, but the beans smelled amazing!! They were good sized beans in great packaging. Arrived very quickly even though it was a kind of last minute holiday time order.

    by Cindy E. Lawson on Oct 17, 2012

    I am so pleased with my order, this is the second order I have placed and the price and quality are unmatched.

I know my family is going to love to get there own cute latch top bottle with a few beans and homemake vanilla extract!!! Yum! Thankyou Beanilla, I will definately be ordering more.

    by Sunny Miller-O'Connor on Sep 17, 2012

    Very different bean with a woodsy, chocolatey aroma. Absolutely divine in my dense flourless chocolate cake!!! I didn't believe this dessert could get any better!

    by Debra Doyle on Jun 28, 2012

    I wanted to make my own vanilla extract and purchased the 6 bean variety from Beanilla. This was my maiden voyage into making vanilla extract for sale. Your products are top of the line!
  45. Perfect everytime

    by MARIA MARRERO on Jun 7, 2012

    I have been getting Vanilla from Beanilla for years now and it has always been a great xperience.
  46. I Love The Beanilla Trading Company

    by Anonymous on Jun 6, 2012

    I've been buying vanilla beans for three years from this website. The TONGA beans are the best ( in my opinion). My orders are always filled and delivered promptly. The beans ( all of them) are fresh and moist, never dried. The Tonga beans are especially plump and filled with vanilla "seeds". They make baking and cooking a special treat.
