Wonderful product ...
by Kathy Fitzgerald on Feb 12, 2015
Fun to try different kinds.
Just arrived and I'm infusing...
by Mike on Jan 30, 2015
Since my favorite drink has been discontinued and I just ran out of my supply (Navan Vanilla Cognac) I had to figure something out since nothing Vanilla cognac out there moved me. Just got the sampler tonight. Started my projects after carefully reading and reviewing ideas while waiting for the arrival. Tahiti vanilla beans infused in Vodka. Madagascar Vanilla beans in Hennessy Black and Indian Organic Vanilla Beans in Remy Martin 1738 Cognac!!! Now it's time to wait and see... I can't wait... To be continued....

Excellent quality - I love these...
by Elijah on Jan 1, 2015
Great way to figure out the flavors of each bean. Now my kitchen team and I are creating a special blend to use for our in-house vanilla gelato.
by Elizabeth Ellicott on Dec 21, 2014
Look forward to trying these different beans.
Sampler is Amazing!!!
by Kela Barker on Dec 16, 2014
I adore this!!! It's my Christmas present to myself. I have six jars of vanilla extract brewing. I can't wait to try them and decide which like the best.
What I've BEAN Missing...
by Kelly Carrington on Dec 3, 2014
All the beans look so fresh! I've already made vanilla ice cream with the Mexican vanilla. Absolutely amazing! A great way to learn about and experience a wide variety of vanilla that I never knew existed until I came across Beanilla! Would make a great gift. Definitely recommend the glass vials.
by Laurie on Nov 24, 2014
The beans were shipped quickly and they look like the picture !! Great purchase and I'll be sure to buy this again !
Nearly a Year
by Peter on Nov 21, 2014
I ordered this sampler nearly a year ago and did so exclusively for making Vanilla Ice Cream. As of today, I am nearly out and have experienced each bean in my recipe.
I thought I would come away with one particular bean that stood above the others but I was wrong. Each does something different to my ice cream and I love them all. If I HAD to pick one, the Indonesian for its hard hitting vanilla WHACK. One bean takes the vanilla experience over the top. But, I'm not always in the mood for the WHACK and each bean adds different characteristics to the recipe. I have no favorite.
In the end and nearly a year after the purchase, I still have a few beans remaining and their original quality was so high, they still hold their perfection, aroma and flavor to this day.
AND... I built a beautiful cherry wood display rack for the glass vials which sets on my counter. Every single person who comes in my kitchen almost immediately checks out the vanilla display.
Simply said.............BUY this sampler!!!
You will be pleased!!!
Great Job Beanilla!!!!
Love My 'Nilla
by Chris Wilhelm on Nov 20, 2014
Fantastic quality and variety. Enjoyed how distinctly different they were.
Vanilla Bean Sampler
by Nichole Chandler on Nov 6, 2014
This is a great set, it was packaged very well, everything arrived in perfect condition and the beans were very fresh. I am using the vials to make vanilla extract and can't wait to see how it turns out. Although I purchased this sampler set for myself, this would make a great gift.
Great gift for a baker
by Alexi Peacock on Oct 22, 2014
But so hard to not just keep for yourself once they arrive. The best way to smell and taste the differences between the beans. Good luck trying to pick a favourite!
Sampler pack is very smart
by josh landry on Oct 19, 2014
Love they give you all these to try. Feel like a kid in a candy store. Will most definitely be buying more vanilla beans
A gift for myself!
by Nancy Serrone on Oct 5, 2014
Was very excited to compare the beans and to my delight they were amazing! I can't wait to try my final products! I highly recommend trying this product! Yes, they are pricey, but its the best way to explore the world of vanilla beans! Buy the glass tubes! They will allow you to store up to 12 beans each in the future. I have already used mine twice and I love them!!!
Vanilla bean sampler
by Andrea on Sep 26, 2014
Got my package 2 days ago and immediately started my vanilla extract! The beans looked great. Can't wait to see what the different beans will taste like. Only complaint was I had ordered the cobalt bottles and instead was shipped Boston brown. Oh well, they are gift bottles now. Thinking I should order more now!
by Lorraine Monroe on Sep 25, 2014
This is a nice assortment of the different vanilla beans. A good way to try them all. Some of them were a little small but all were very fresh.
Great way to sample
by Crysta Stephenson on Sep 21, 2014
I love that there is an option to easily sample all the types of beans. Once I have a favorite...I can stick to what I like!
by Margaret Knight on Sep 19, 2014
Terrific for exploration of differences among beans. I am eager to try the extracts in a few months.
Love the vials
by Sherry Vanderlinden on Aug 27, 2014
I'm also glad that Beanilla just came out with a nifty new display rack for the vials. Very classy way to display your beans!
Vanilla Bean Sampler
by Melissa Kilzer on Aug 20, 2014
This is a great way to try all the different types of vanilla beans available. A little pricey, but great quality. I can't wait until all my extracts are ready to use!
Vanilla bean sampler
by Sandra Wheeler on Aug 3, 2014
Received product a couple of days after I ordered it. Very fresh.
by Kristina on Jul 27, 2014
I think this may be the best way to introduce yourself to the true differences of vanilla varieties. This sampler is anything but "plain vanilla"! You won't be disappointed.
by Timothy Rogers on Jul 16, 2014
Tahitian... 'Nuff said.
by Sandi Hoover on Jul 4, 2014
Vanilla Bean Sampler
by Mary Long on Jun 12, 2014
I was very pleased with the sampler & love the aroma of the different beans. I have made seperate vanilla extracts with
each varitey & can't wait to see how they all turn out.
by Julie Alexander on Jun 3, 2014
Love these select Beans!
by Mary Ann Remstad on Jun 2, 2014
I received my vanilla bean sampler and was so impressed with how quickly I received my order and the quality of the vanilla beans I purchased. I've never seen such plump and fragment beans. Perfect.
Vanilla Bean Sampler
by Kari Guilbault on Jun 2, 2014
Great way to sample the different varieties of vanilla beans. Product arrived quickly and in great condition.
by Kerri Leath on May 23, 2014
I use the vanilla beans for making ice cream. I am incredibly happy with the quality of the vanilla beans, they are better than the ones I can get in local stores. I highly recommend them for ice cream.
Vanilla Bean Sampler, 3 Beans of Each Variety (6 Varieties)
by Colette Collins on May 14, 2014
Appears as expected. Haven't used them yet and won't until my first batch of homemade vanilla is decanted and I can experiment more.
by Leslie Brewer on May 11, 2014
The beans came in great shape, they smelled wonderful. I will buy from you again.
by Janice Buck on May 9, 2014
I have not tried them all yet but love that you sell a sample package. I simmer fresh vanilla bean in my hot milk at night. It's been fun testing the different brands. Yummy!
by Lindsey Prokscha on Apr 5, 2014
I found this site through a blog and quickly added it to my favorites. I bought the sampler for myself and a second one for my friend. The beans are excellent quality and a great value.
by Mystique Maines on Mar 26, 2014
I was very excited to try the different kinds of beans. I have used 3 of the varieties I have purchase before but am anxious to see how the other 3 compare.
by Jacquelyn Weatherford on Mar 18, 2014
The sampler was a great purchase for someone new to vanilla beans. It gave me the opportunity to try different flavor profiles. Price was a little high for the number of beans I received, but that is just the price you pay. Can't wait to order a quantity at a lower price. Would buy again!! So very happy with the product.
by Sandy Lubitz on Mar 17, 2014
Very nice to have the glass vials for storing the beans. Good quality beans! Nice and plump and smell really good!
by Catherine Wiersema on Mar 14, 2014
I got this sampler to learn more about the individual qualities of these vanillas. I have started to use them but not completed all my testing. So far, I am so impressed with how different the smell of each vanilla is. The beans are beautiful in all instances, moist and plump. A wonderful discovery.
by Lindsey Knoth-Rodenburg on Mar 12, 2014
These beans are beautiful. The glass vials are great for pretending you are a mad scientists as you whip up new and delicious concoctions. This was my third order with Beanilla, and as always it was great !
by Gerri Perriello on Feb 27, 2014
Nice to be able to try all the different beans without spending a fortune.
by Shirley Audetat on Feb 26, 2014
I thought they would be stronger in taste when using in cakes. I haven't tried the vanilla extract yet.
by Cindy Hawkins on Feb 26, 2014
Fun way to compare vanilla beans.
by Peter Sorace on Feb 21, 2014
Beans of amazing quality, some packages were not vacuum sealed as promised, big let down.
by Leonard Tartaglia on Feb 20, 2014
My beans arrived as expected, I used the labels on the vacuum sealed bags to place on the bottles as I used these to try making my own vanilla extract. Not disappointed.
Let the experiments begin...
by Michelle Hackett on Feb 12, 2014
In order to keep our vials from rolling around we cut hole out of the top of an empty plastic gallon ice cream bucket. Then we popped the lid on the bucket and the vials float safely inside. Remember to make the hole smaller than the lids.
by Randy Linsenmeyer on Feb 7, 2014
They mis-shipped on of the items in my order, sending one whe three were ordered. I called and they shipped out what I was missing right away and it arrived in time for the birthday that this was a gift for. The product and the packaging were great.
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.
Vanilla bean sampler.
by Andrea Weathers on Feb 2, 2014
Received in great condition. They are currently steeping in vodka for vanilla extract.
by Kevin McArthur on Jan 29, 2014
Some of the beans have a distinct and off-putting musty smell to them while others are excellent and exceed expectations. The Tongan beans are almost unusable while the Tahitian ones are wonderful.
by Jaclyn Peters on Jan 15, 2014
Outstanding Product & Service
by Kathryn Kvederis on Jan 10, 2014
Very carefully packaged for shipping and the product is wonderful!
by jill reichardt on Jan 2, 2014
My daughter is a high school culinary student. We used these beans to make each of her 2 chef teachers a set of small 2 oz. bottles of extract in each vanilla variety. They loved the gifts and were excited to try all 7 varieties.
by Danna Davis on Dec 31, 2013
Item exactly as described. Arrived promptly and intact.
Would shop again!!!
by Lee Evans on Dec 29, 2013
Loved the care with packaging the items! Nothing was broken and it was well wrapped yet easy to open and get the items out of the bubble wrap and packing tape. Very fast shipping too !
Perfect for my body butter
by Toni Juarez on Dec 26, 2013
I bought the sample pack, so I could see which would be the best to use in a homemade body butter. I enjoyed all the different fragrances, the Mexican bean won. Everyone said the body butter smelled good enough to eat.
Sampler in glass vials
by Robert Stilwell on Dec 18, 2013
I used half the vanilla in each vial to make a vial of vanilla extract, this is a great method for getting a good handle on the characteristics of each vanilla.
by Angela Nichols on Dec 16, 2013
Definitely worth paying the extra for the glass. Beans were plump and fragrant. I've already several most for cooking and extract. Won't know results of extracts for another month or so, but they look beautiful. Great price for what you get and a great way to try them all. I'll definitely be ordering again. Thanks BEANILLA!!
by Regina Cox on Dec 12, 2013
I have started some vanilla with the Tahitian Beans and can't wait to get the others started, as well. Smells wonderful ;)
Love the beans!
by Amanda Eberle on Dec 9, 2013
It's rare you come across such a quality product!
by YEN NI LIAW on Nov 18, 2013
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
by Sarah Nelson on Nov 7, 2013
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.
by Misty Lustberg on Oct 22, 2013
Best fresh vanilla ever...
vanilla bean sampler
by Deanna L Kopecky on Oct 10, 2013
i am very excited about this shipment. i am a repeat customer and have recommended you to others.
Very good quality product
by Todd Steeves on Oct 7, 2013
by Cheryl Carmer on Oct 5, 2013
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
by Robyn on Aug 4, 2013
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.
