I have been buying my vanilla in larger quantities, finding that it saves me money and time. This 8-ounce (a full cup!) bottle of high-quality vanilla lasts a long time, and is cheaper than buying smaller quantities of inferior-quality vanilla at the grocery store. This vanilla has a deep, creamy flavor; it’s everything good vanilla should be.

Certified gluten-free. Also comes in 4-ounce and 32-ounce size.
