I’ve been using McCormick vanilla extract for baking literally since I learned to bake as a kid. The flavor comes out smooth every time without being overpowering or giving off a bitter taste like some other brands do. Is it a bit pricey? Sure.. but you definitely get what you pay for when it comes to this product!

I grew up using this vanilla extract and I always add extra into my recipes or add a teaspoon into boxed cake mixes. It gives such a nice creamy flavor to baked goods. You can find it in just about any store and I think it's reasonably priced. It is always consistent, strong but not overpowering, and has a great smell and taste. I have used it for years.

I absolutely love the warm and full taste of McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract. It's superior to most extracts I have used in the past. When it comes to the addition of vanilla, don't skimp yourself short- use this classic. You won't be disappointed!

As soon as I started baking I have always always used this and no other. There just isn't another one that has this same great tasty flavor to it. This has always had a consistent  flavor to it without any changes or any weird after taste. This will always be my go to for all my baking needs.

I use this vanilla extract every time a recipe calls for vanilla. It’s tasty and it very original! It makes the most bland of recipes into a grand recipe! I buy it from Walmart in the baking section next to the spices. The packaging is neat and easy to get into.

Never imitation only the real stuff. Vanilla is probably my favorite extract and McCormick’s great and a good value. Vanilla can be a little pricey but it goes along way. Use it baking and love to add it to pancake/waffle batter. Tasty and aromatic.

Pure Vanilla... I only use it for one thing and is a Spanish/Latino, well a Dominican drink that we call (Morir Soñando) its a mix of evaporated milk, orange juice I use (limes) also, ice, vanilla, (cinnamon powder) if you like and sugar. All mixed together will give a traditional drink and its amazing

This is the only Vanilla Extract I’ve ever used and it’s never let me down. The extract has great smell and flavor. I can count on the cake tasting just as desired. It’s also not a very expensive product, so it’s great all around.

This pure vanilla extract is the best. Most people want to save some money by purchasing the cheaper store brand version but this is far more worth it. The flavor is so much richer and makes your baked goods taste so much better.
