Good sample arrangements
If you cook by smell get these...
by Earl Callens on Nov 16, 2013
This is such a good way to really understand the difference in Vanilla. Smell, taste and feel. It really makes a difference knowing how the base vanilla used in a recipe will effect the out come.
vanilla beans samplee

I will order again
by Sherry Selmer on Nov 2, 2013
I bought these samples and the 4oz bottles to make my own vanilla. This is a great way to experience the subtle differences in vanilla varieties!
Get the glass vials!
by Katie Wurden on Oct 31, 2013
It's worth it to get the glass containers so that the beans stay fresh as you make your way through them. We got a kick out of the differences.

Best fresh vanilla ever...

Making home made vanilla won't know for a couple of months if it was worth it.
by Teresa Traum on Oct 1, 2013
I never realized there were such a variety of vanilla beans! I'm looking forward to trying each one of them!
by Krista Hertzel on Sep 30, 2013
It was perfect!!!
Great way to try a few
by Steven Riedl on Sep 29, 2013
Didn't really like the tahitian in ice cream, but glad I got to try the variety.
Beans smell great
by Lynsey Anderson on Sep 27, 2013
The beans smell great and they got here quickly. Thanks Beanilla!
excellent way to try vanilla
by Holly Green on Sep 26, 2013
Love the sampler. All the varieties are an excellent way to try the various types of beans.
Test Tube Stand
by Mattie MacGregor on Sep 26, 2013
The sampler back was perfect for giving me the opportunity to experiment with different beans to see which I like best for making vanilla extract. However, I'd really love to see a test tube stand available with the sampler to keep the tubes upright after adding alcohol to them for vanilla. It makes me really nervous to just let them roll around, and I've invested enough money that it would be worth it. I think it would also make for a really great add-on for gifts.
Perfect for sampling a variety of vanilla beans.
by Catherine Thurston on Sep 26, 2013
Some friends who also bake mentioned using fresh vanilla beans to make extract. Another friend had previously shared some beans from her order from your site.
by Christine Shipley on Sep 25, 2013
I don't know much about beans prices since this is my first order and first time making extract.
Storage rack would be nice
by Mattie on Sep 15, 2013
I bought the sampler to make my own vanilla extracts, and now that I've done some research I'll be buying others to experiment with potato vs. grain high-end vodkas such as Belvedere and Chopin. It would be incredibly useful if Beanilla offered test tube racks for storage during and after making the extracts. Failing that, I hope Beanilla will post both the diameter and the length dimensions of a vial on the website!
by Francesca Joseph on Sep 7, 2013
This is an excellent Christmas present for all the family
by Cynthia Silveri on Aug 29, 2013
The sampler is a great way to see, smell (and soon, taste!) the different types of beans next to one another. You really can sense the differences.
by robyn houston on Aug 19, 2013
the extra 5$ for the tubes was money well spent to keep future purchases fresh .the beans were moist and fragrant. Oh my the tahitians are my absolute favorite. You can purchase beans online at ebay in bulk for cheaper but here you get to sample a variety to figure out what your favorite is. Ive already made vanilla sugar, vanilla extract, vanilla paste, vanilla bean caramel sauce and the list goes on. great product.
Sample, sample, sample

After buying 2 vanilla beans at the store for $15 I stumbled upon this site. I was happy with the glass containers and labeling.
Many Vanillas, Different Flavors!
by Cynthia Blair on Aug 4, 2013
To sample vanillas this is the way to go, My beans arrived fast, safely packaged, and of the highest quality! I found a favorite but learned that different beans lend themselves to different flavors which has enhanced my baking.
by Maria Liesegang on Jul 10, 2013
very pleased with my beans!
Variety is the spice...
by Lindsay Van on Jul 6, 2013
I was thrilled to order this sampler pack. I am even more delighted that I will have a small amount of each to play around with in my baking :)
by murat goksen on Jun 20, 2013
Excellent...Love this product really nice
Great way to try them all
by Verna Norris on Jun 10, 2013
I bought the variety pack as I wasn't sure which vanilla bean I would like best. This gives me a chance to try them and make a choice. Each pack is now steeping in 47.5% alcohol (vodka) and in a couple of months I'll have the results. The quality of the beans is superb and the packages were well sealed. One unexpected benefit: The labels come off the packages easily so I could apply them to the bottles, thereby keeping all the samples labeled neatly.
by Gary Merriam on May 20, 2013
I had NO CLUE the subtle and not so subtle differences In the different Vanilla Beans...it IS AMAZING the DIFFERENCES in these beans! A MUST HAVE FOR A TRUE COOK/CHEF!!!
by Mallarie Lujan on May 6, 2013
Not bad for getting 9 varieties to try. What I have tried so far I can say that I am happy with the results. I had a small discrepancy but Beanilla customer service took care of it IMMEDIATELY and has knowledgable staff about their products. I have already purchased 1.5 more pounds of vanilla beans!
by Matthew Tuccio on May 6, 2013
Best and most freshest beans ive ever ordered
by Gary Caruso on Apr 2, 2013
The quality makes it worth it 100% I do wish they advised it is best to just get the glass vials unless you own vacuum sealer. Overall happy with purchase, will definitely order in the future.
by Jennifer Fossett on Mar 4, 2013
I wanted to try out and compare other beans and this was the perfect way to do that. I recommend getting them in the glass viles as to keep them fresh.
by Elizabeth O'Shea on Mar 3, 2013
Already have a bunch in vodka jars. Like the ease with which the labels peel off for re labeling. Very pleased, would get again. Also making vanilla sugar and sachets.
Great Sampler Pack
by Jason Cooke on Feb 25, 2013
I ordered this because my wife and I are doing some market testing for an ice cream store. With our products being scratch made, this sampler gave us the easiest opportunity to test a wide variety of beans. After making batches of ice cream from all 9 types of beans, I can truly say, vanilla just doesn't seem the same. I'm going to be a serious vanilla snob from now on. Our 30 testers picked Mexican Vanilla as their favorite with Ugandan coming in second. We were actually able to pass off Tahitian as "Cake Batter" because of it's sweet floral notes. The kids just loved it!
by Dana Tenerife on Feb 14, 2013
I could hardly wait to receive the parcel. They lived up to and surpassed my expectations.
Great product, fast service
by Tessa Lau on Feb 4, 2013
We are attempting to make our own vanilla extract, wasn't sure which variety to use and then we found the sampler pack. The beans have all been chopped up and added to either Bourbon or Vodka. Just have to wait another 4 weeks to test the final product. Will definately purchase beans from Beanilla again, great selection, excellent product, fast shipping.
by Lorna Todeschini on Jan 19, 2013
Not sure on the quality yet. Tomorrow will be the first time I get to try the vanilla I made with the beans. The beans smelled great!
great first time experience
by paul krueger on Jan 3, 2013
Best vanilla ice cream yet. Looking forward to many more uses for these wonderful varieties
by Michelle Haggard on Dec 28, 2012
I got this sampler set for my mom for Christmas, so we could make vanilla together. I'm pretty sure it was her favorite gift and we're very excited to try our 8 different varieties of vanilla in a couple months.
by Christian Pinover on Dec 23, 2012
Product was packaged well and just as described.
by Donna DiLeo on Dec 19, 2012
Love trying a variety
by Karen Zorn on Dec 5, 2012
A real treat. My Thanksgiving dinner guests had a ball learning about the different kinds of vanilla beans and sniffing each type.
by Areatha White on Dec 4, 2012
My mom loved the variety of beans and can't wait to try them out. Seeing the variation in size and thickness between the different varieties was cool.
Quick and efficient. thanks
by michelle bauman on Dec 4, 2012
i appreciate your prompt mailing.
Excellent Way To Start
by Kristina Dickey on Dec 4, 2012
by Harold Biggs on Nov 21, 2012
I haven't actually used any of the beans in this sampler yet (but Thanksgiving prep starts this afternoon so I will break into them then). I originally received some beans and extract through Joy the Baker's lost crates. The beans were so much more plump and flavorful than the ones I was getting at my local grocer that I decided it was worth ordering. The value is much better as well. I was typically buying 2 beans for about $10 at the store. With higher quality and a cheaper price I will definitely be buying more beans from you in the future!

I bought this item to make gifts, I am hoping that everyone loves them. All the beans smell wonderful!
by Jennifer Knash on Nov 20, 2012
I have yet to open any of the packages to try the vanilla beans
by Michelle Guzman on Oct 30, 2012
fast shipping, great packaging. can't wait to try them all!
by Douglas M Taylor on Oct 29, 2012
Wonderful sampler. Making three kinds of homemade vanilla now. excellent variety and quality.
I'm very happy with my order
by colleen connolly on Sep 3, 2012
Very fresh. Packaged well
by lorraine ahumada on Aug 8, 2012
some of the beans were a little small, barely measured 5", which is the minimum. When you order the bean type individually you get the larger size beans
Great product at a great price
by Jason Moore on Jul 26, 2012
Everything was perfect and as expected!
by John Poole on Jul 15, 2012
I live in Napa and I bought the Vanilla Bean Sampler with glass tubes, I can't wait to have a vanilla tasting party - a nice break from all that wine. The beans are luxurious and they arrived days before I expected them, so top rating for order processing and shipment. Measurements by vial average: 1 @ 5", 3 @ 6", 5 @ 7"
by William Brinson on Jul 5, 2012
A great way to try all of your beans for a great price
My 8 bean variety pack
by Jennifer Sopko on Jun 28, 2012
It is great to be able to have such a variety of beans to try. The sample pack is a great way to see what you like. Out of 8 tubes with 3 in each ONE bean had some white on it and Im not sure what that was but other then that everything arrived in a timely manner and was bottled and sealed. Over all Im extremely happy with my purchase. I highly recommend and cant wait to start baking :) Thank you
by Danielle Fujii-Doe on Jun 27, 2012
One of the packets was not sealed properly so one of the beans had mold on it.
by Tracey on Jun 26, 2012
I have read nothing but superb reviews about Beanilla and the quality of their vanilla beans and all the reviews were spot on, the taste, small, quality PHENOMENAL. Can't wait to finish my extract, will be back for more! Keep up the good work and thank you for your assistance!
by Rachel Vincun on Jun 19, 2012
So glad I found such a wonderful quality source for Vanilla Beans. So fresh and intoxicating. I'll be back to order larger quantities of my favorite selections soon! Thank you for offering such a fantastic product and reasonably priced.
by Catherine Connors on Jun 14, 2012
Love the vanilla beans I purchased! cannot wait to try them all! Made vanilla ice cream with one and oh, so good!!!
