I purchased 8 ea. Madagascar bourbon Vanilla Beans & each bean was perfect and fresh as could be ,turgid ,odor was a room filling adventure in happiness and beauty in odor.! The taste upon extraction plus some my lady fixed in goodies straight out scraped were all super.As good as I have ever tasted,smelled or even viewed in their perfect state. Sounds like a lot but a lot was gained. We are a very happy and have ordered again from this company.Thank You "My Spice Sage" .
The Madagascar vanilla beans were not the quality I have received in the past. I found they were really small and dry. My Spice Sage gave me credit so I ordered some Mexican and prime vanilla beans. I have not received them yet but will be soon. I have never had a problem with my orders before and recommend My Spice Sage to all my friends ., Thank you very much.
I was a little disappointed I was hoping they would be small like what you buy in the stores from McCormick but it was bigger and when I put it in my small food processor to grind it up some it broke the food processor. So I have not used it much in the dishes I wanted to use it for.
At the risk of insulting the cooking and baking community, I bought this strictly for use in brewing. I added one whole bean to 2 cups of water, brought to a boil, then allowed to cool. This was added to the secondary, and stayed there for 3 weeks. The flavor imparted had much more complexity than generic extract.
Being a returning customer I would say my experience has always been great.
Service has been prompt, with free shipping and samples, great prices.
Have shared your site with many people.
I will continue to be a customer.
I am in the process of making homemade vanilla extract for Christmas gifts but they smelled so fresh and delicious! I'm sure I will not be disappointed. The products I have previously purchased were quality so I would expect the same.
I found My Spice Sage several years ago when I couldn't find beef demi glace locally. I have been ordering and experimenting with different spices since then. I have never been disappointed and will continue to shop with My Spice Sage.
Not all beans are created equal. Please know you are getting 'top of the line' beans from Spice Sage. I have bought them from importers while in France right after they received their shipments, and they were not quite as nice as these are!
All too often I buy vanilla beans at the supermarket and they are dried out. Not good.
These beans were well sealed, plump, moist, and gave up beautiful beans. I use 5-10 a week so I know I will be coming back!
This is my second batch of these beans, i returned the first because, while they certainly beat regular 'store bought' beans they were not what I'm used to from you guys. The good part is that I'll keep the beans the bad part is I've obviously been spoiled by the superior quality of any of the many other orders I've placed with you. I hope the beans get better by Christmas! I'll be ordering again then.
These beans are beautiful - if a vanilla bean can be be beautiful! :-) I was surprised that they were so large, plump and moist - not shriveled and dry as are the ones I have purchased at grocery stores. Thank you so much!
I make french toast for my wife every weekend and she absolutely cannot do without a bit of vanilla in the egg. Your beans are well priced and great quality. I am going to make an extract with some this time. Thank you!
I've placed a couple of orders in the last year and have always been pleased with my order. Shipping is quick, customer service is exceptional and the spices and vanilla beans superb! And the prices...Well they can't be beat!
I have made several purchases from My Spice Sage and although I was very impressed with speed with which I received my order, I wasn't impressed with the quality of the product. The beans were very thin and almost dry. In addition, I appreciate the free product given with orders, but I think it is unfair that the same number of free beans are given no matter the quantity ordered.
I was very happy with the freshness and quality of these beans. Not to mention when you open the package, it smells like heaven. I have been a customer for 5-6 years now. I always order from you because of the quality of everything I buy! Jean Spicer
Very plump and moist, gives a great flavor to any vanilla dessert. Also good for making vanilla extract, I used 1 cup of clear rum with 1 vanilla bean split and scraped. I let it sit for a week and it had a great flavor, despite not turning dark brown like conventional vanilla extract.
These beans smelled heavenly when the package was opened. I am using them to make Vanilla Extract. It's taking a little longer than I thought it would but I expect the finished product to be great. I recommend these beans.
These vanilla beans are the best! After being gifted a vanilla bean by a friend, I have long looked forlornly at the jars of vanilla beans in the store... but they were just too pricey for me at $11 for two spindly little 6 inch beans. I received 7 FREE vanilla beans today with my order here from My Spice Sage, and they were like nothing I've ever had! Plump 9 inch long beans, with a delicious strong vanilla aroma. Here, I can get 8 of these large beans for $8.50. If you want to buy these, do not hesitate. That picture doesn't do them justice, they really are the best!
I received my order of Madagascar Vanilla Beans today and they are the plumpest and nicest Beans I have ever seen. I am very impressed with your service and also the free package of Turkey Brine spices. I cant wait to use them. Thank you.
I am a single male, 61 years old. If I don't fix the meal I don't eat. I have always bought my spices from the grocery store because that is the only place I thought you could get them. Lately I have gotten hooked on several cooking shows and one of them (maybe America's Test Kitchen) mentioned that getting fresh spices from the web makes a world of difference. I found your website and thought I would give you a try. After selecting several spices I found that you offered free 10 vanilla beans with my order. If it is free it is probably old stock but never having tried real vanilla beans I figured what the hell I'd give it a try. When I received my order the first package I opened was the free vanilla beans. Wait a minute, they were pliable menaing they weren't 5 years old. I went to my local bottle shop and got some good quality vodka specifically to make my own vanilla extract. I slit the beans and put them in the vodka (1 slit bean per half cup of vodka). What a difference! I'll never buy vanilla extract again. In fact, every package of spice I opened smelled so different from the store bought! How did they make everything smell so much stronger than what I was used to? I will never buy spices from the grocery store again! Thank you for changing my life and my meals!
