Product Description

Vanilla, the most popular flavour in the world, originated in Mexico. Brought to Europe about 1520 by the explorer Cortez, it was first used only in conjunction with cacao beans in a drink called Chocolati. Since 1602 it has been enjoyed as a flavour by itself.
Grown mainly in Madagascar and Indonesia, as well as other minor areas, the vanilla bean, or pod, is the only edible fruit-bearing orchid. Each flower, open only one day a year, must be hand pollinated to produce a pod which requires a labour intensive 3-6 month curing process to develop full flavour. About 5 pounds of harvested pods produce only 1 pound of cured pods.
Our exclusive cold process method extracts the essence from selected vanilla pods, the finest obtainable, producing rich and delicious flavour that is unsurpassed. Use and enjoy!
Alcohol 35%.
The World's Finest Vanilla
Our family business has crafted the finest vanilla extracts for more than 100 years. Using our exclusive cold extraction, we gently draw out the flavour from this proprietary blend of premium beans. Use and enjoy!

Lovely and actually great value

Firstly the flavour is amazing. Also its a big bottle and lasts a long time so its actually worth the extra pennies.

Great flavour, excellent for baking.

Best vanilla extract

This is my preferred choice of vanilla extract for baking. I reluctantly tried 2 other brands that did not even come close to taste before Ocado started carrying this. Now it's always there when I need it. Thank you Ocado!

Did I get a bad bottle or are my taste buds weired

Horrible, hardly any vanilla flavour - possibly because of the overpowering taste of alcohol (not mentioned in Ocado description, and also not clearly marked on bottle unless you've paid attention in your chemistry lesson). The latter making it unsuitable for certain dishes, e.g. quark/yoghurt. Can't recommend, won't buy again.

VERY average, little flavour

bought this after reading the rave reviews below - expected to be swept off my feet, however, this turned out to be just a very average tasting vanilla extract. actually not very strong either, for instance, when compared to the S... supermarket's own brand. i add this stuff to drinks - tea coffee, hot chocolate, and found myself pouring in quite a lot and still felt something was missing. used for baking once, was not impressed either, just not enough flavour, would not buy again.

This is a dessert that can be prepared up to two days before serving - a winner for midweek entertaining. Poach your pears and make the caramel sauce ahead, but warm both before serving.
