I have decided to order larger sizes of flavorings (vanilla, butter and almond specifically) because im tired of buying new ones every few weeks. I currently use the wilton brand and like the taste of them so I don't want to order a larger size before knowing if it is good or not. Recenty I opted for convience and bought a butter flavoring at Winn Dixie (I think it was Toni brand) and it changed the flavor of my buttercream so much I had to throw everything away and go buy more. So I would appreciate input from the pros before I make my decision.

watkins, makes a very nice double strength vanilla, that they sell in larger quantities. I don't use butter flavoring so i really can't comment on that, but i do know they carry it too.

Personally i but vanilla by the quart (only use pure vanilla) at my local restaurant supply store.

OH man - someone was just saying that there is a great clear vanilla out there. And silly me, I lost the paper that I wrote the info on. Does anyone know what brand it was? It definitely wasn't Wilton.

I use Virgina Dare, which is great. I buy it from a local cookware store.

I had no idea they made a powdered vanilla or almond. Pretty cool!

Wilton is what I'm currently using. I'll have to go see if I can find it in my post log. That could take a while. LOL!

Ok - actually finding the thread wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be.

So the answer is Adam's Clear Vanilla.


In case anyone wants to read the thread, here it is.
