Ugandan Vanilla Beans

Vanilla produced in Uganda is incredible. The aroma is earthy with tones of milk-chocolate. The flavor is very bold as these vanilla beans produce a very high amount of vanillin making them perfect for rich desserts and chocolates.

  1. Beans

    by Lawrence Zalewski on Feb 25, 2015

    Looks and smells great!
  2. Exactly as described

    by Deitra Jones on Feb 19, 2015

    These beans were my first purchase from this company and I bought a package of 10 a few months ago. Shipping was fast and packaging was perfect. Although I have only praises for the flavor a few of the beans were thin on caviar inside. Not sure why or if that's typical for this variety. For the price it's a good value. I have already reordered (a different variety) a month ago and again today so I can sample more varieties. I'm a very happy customer.
  3. Another Wonderful Experience

    by Alana Harper on Feb 14, 2015

    I had another great experience with Beanilla. The beans smell wonderful! I used them in a Vanilla Bean White Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. It was a big hit! I will continue to use Beanilla for all of my vanilla bean needs.
  4. Love them!

    by Sara Ring on Feb 13, 2015

    Ugandan vanilla beans are very high quality and oh so good.
  5. Excellent vanilla beans

    by Donna Pawl on Feb 11, 2015

    My latest purchase of Ugandan Vanilla exceeded my expectations in aroma, size, and amount of caviar. They are currently in use making a batch of Vanilla Rum ...
  6. Love this

    by Stephenie Spencer on Feb 8, 2015

    So glad there are websites like Beanilla. Great quality beans for a great price, and my package came fast! When I opened it, I knew these people meant business. It was so nicely wrapped. Definitely will buy from them again in the future.
  7. Making vanilla

    by Sara on Feb 1, 2015

    I purchased these in November and as soon as a got them, I split them and put in vodka. My vanilla has been fermenting since then. My vanilla is done and wonderful. These were great beans!
  8. Good smelling beans

    by Barbara Ping Mitchell on Jan 21, 2015

    These beans smell really good and while not as juicy as I expected still were not as dry at the Madagascar ones I got in my order. And so split them and put them in Vodka with the Madagascar ones to make vanilla. Will try these some time in Vodka by themselves when I try them again. Vanilla smells good and finally beginning to get darker after around two weeks.
  9. Vanilla Beans

    by Monica Dailey on Jan 19, 2015

    The beans are great quaility. I would purchase again.
  10. Used for extract

    by Patrick Lyons on Jan 15, 2015

    Very plump and not dried out
  11. New to Me

    by Ethel Powers on Jan 7, 2015

    I didn't know there was such a product but am glad to have found it. They smell wonderful and I am steeping a new batch right now.
  12. Simply Awesome

    by JD Webb on Dec 27, 2014

    My grade B beans came today and I went to work on 12 jars of extract of various varieties from vodka to rum. I have ordered beans from Beanilla several times, and have not been disappointed.
  13. Magnificent Product

    by Sybil Coleman on Dec 23, 2014

    I have purchased several orders of the Madagascar vanilla beans, both A and B. They made excellent extract and even better gifting. Just on a whim I decided to try the Ugandan vanilla beans.....HOLY SMOKES! They were amazing! Plump, moist and flavorful I was pleasantly surprised, The aroma of the beans alone made me salivate. I cannot wait to try them in my sugar cookies. Superior product and timely shipping means that I will be a life long shopper with Beanilla!
  14. Ugandan Vanilla Beans

    by Jean Kelly-Nunn on Dec 20, 2014

    good quality
  15. Great company!

    by Debra Zook on Dec 19, 2014

    Very fast service!!! Great product.
  16. Elegant flavor

    by Mel Espina on Dec 18, 2014

    I bought Madagascar, Ugandan and Indonesian beans, and these are elegant in their softer, smoky flavor. I made vanilla extract with them and it gives a off a more smoother aroma and finish. So good!
  17. Great Bean

    by Jeffrey Space on Dec 17, 2014

    Before Beanilla I didn't even know there were so many varieties of vanilla. I tried theses Ugandan beans for variety and was happy I did. It created a unique flavor profile all its own. You would want to use it in products featuring vanilla as the prominent flavor to gain its full benefit.
  18. Good stuff!

    by Daniel Breton on Dec 17, 2014

    Very happy!!

    by Richard Glowicki on Dec 10, 2014

    Ordered some Madagascar beans last year and was quite pleased at the results of them. Just received an order for some beans from Uganda and can't wait to try them out. Very pleased with shipping never had a problem with product and it is priced perfectly Thanks Beanilla you have friend for life!!!
  22. Excellent

    by Katie on Dec 6, 2014

    Very happy I chose this bean! Very different from the traditional Madagascar. It made beautiful extract. The packaging kept the beans fresh until I was ready to use them.
  23. Smells great

    by Ashley Vandorn on Dec 4, 2014

    Vacuum packed very well, look great. Have not yet opened.
  25. Best place to buy vanilla

    by Henry Newman on Nov 28, 2014

    I have been a customer for 4 years and always find Beanilla to have good prices and amazing selection.
  26. My Favorite Beans

    by Evie Ulibarri on Nov 25, 2014

    I tried several varieties of vanilla beans, and the Ugandan is by far my favorite. The flavor is amazing!
  27. Great deal

    by Summer on Nov 24, 2014

    Love these vanilla beans. They work great for homemade vanilla extract!
  28. Vanilla bean order

    by Shawna McDowell on Nov 23, 2014

    This was my 2nd order with this company and once again I was very satisfied with the whole process of ordering, delivery and product. I will be ordering again!
  29. Packaging

    by Michelle Berg on Nov 21, 2014

    I wish the packages were re-sealable. I didn't use all of the beans at one time, so it would have been nice to have a good way to re-seal them. But they smelled amazing and were nice and soft to work with.
  30. Much better pricing

    by Kent Roberts on Nov 15, 2014

    Best price of the varieties we liked from our sampling.

    by Matthew Rigby on Nov 14, 2014

  35. Ugandan Beans

    by Jake Holshue on Oct 20, 2014

    Tons of chocolate flavor/aroma. Tons of oils, visually accentuated by the vacuum-sealed packs they were sent in.
  36. Great beans!

    by Reinhard Hopperger on Oct 15, 2014

    Outstanding flavor. Robust and interesting.
  37. Rich aroma

    by Michelle Chan on Oct 11, 2014

    These beans have a heady scent of caramel when you open them up. They're slimmer and drier than some other beans, but still have plenty of seeds and fragrance.
  38. great quality beans

  40. Soooooooo Good

    by Christina on Sep 21, 2014

    I bought these beans ( along with several other kinds) because I wanted to try them out and see what the different varieties taste like. I used these Ugandan vanilla beans today in a vanilla cake with vanilla brown butter glaze (from Avery and these beans were DELICIOUS!! Loved them!
  41. Interesting aroma!

    by Dru Fenster on Sep 21, 2014

    These beans came well packed with fast shipping. Quality was just as advertised. I have added them to some alcohol infusions to make extract and am really looking forward to trying it in baked goods in a couple of months. I also plan to make some vanilla sugar and vanilla salt with these beans. I really appreciated the description of the characteristics of each variety of bean. I would like to see more Extract Grade B beans available in the future. Thanks Beanilla!

  93. Fabulous homemade vanilla bourbon extract!

    by Dawn Hanby on Dec 16, 2013

    I was hoping these would come packaged in a glass vial but it is what it is. I made homemade vanilla extract with bourbon and it is still marinating; however, it is wonderful so far! Our friend we gave it to loves it! Great idea for gift giving :)
