Hi everyone,

I am constantly buying Wilton Vanilla because I love how it smells and tastes..but unfortunately they don't sell it by the gallon and that one little bottle is gone by the end of the day. So i am wondering is the CK clear vanilla good? Does it have the same flavor as the wilton vanilla? Is there any comparison? Thanks in advance!!!!

Personally, I like it. And it's so much better because you don't run out as frequently.

Cylstrial...thanks for replying. Does it have that vanilla-ish flavor/smell?? The reason I'm asking is because i had previously purchased some vanilla from a cake supply shop (it wasn't CK vanilla) and it smelled like coconut...i bought the clear and the dark and they both smelled like coconut and when i used it in the cake it smelled and tasted like coconut.

I buy the Watkins Double strenghth Imitation Vanilla and it does come in the gallon jug and smells really nice.It also is clear so it won't disolor your icing.Check and see if you have a Watkin rep...they sell it like Avon...I pay $93.00 CAD for mine and it lasts about 6 months.

I never knew Watkins sold their vanilla in that big of a jug. I really like the vanilla extract so I'll have to look into the gallon of clear vanilla. Thanks Kiddiekakes!

I think it smells like vanilla. I wonder if they just mismarked the bottle that you bought? That's kind of weird for it to smell like coconut when it's supposed to be vanilla!

Yeah, i thought so too...but for the dark colored vanilla to smell like coconut also, I didn't think that was a coincidence (sp?). But then again I think it was their own product that they sell because I had never seen the name before. I just use it for my coconut cakes!
