As some of you know, I am a big fan of the all-natural flavorings and extracts from Spices Etc. for my RI and dough. I order often enough that they know who I am and they told me that they are in the process of developing new flavors and asked if there were any new flavors that I or my cookie friends would be interested in. Off the top of my head, I would like White Chocolate. Does anyone else have any flavor requests? Here is a link to what they carry right now:

Any requests?

how wonderful Tracy!

I am a huge fan of those natural flavorings, too. I use them almost exclusively when I bake now!! I'm happy to try any of their natural flavors!

I definitely second the vote for white chocolate flavor!

Oh, you all are coming up with some good ones! icon_biggrin.gif

Emily - if you are going to try them, you can use a first time order discount code as follows:

CC9 flat rate shipping of $4.95 for orders within the US only
AKT9 15% for US or international orders (discount taken before shipping costs)

Choose the one code that applies to you or what you want and enter it at the beginning of checkout and then continue on.

The Flat Rate shipping will be the first option for shipping under the billing information and the 15% off will show up when looking at the summary.

Thus far, I myself have tried and really like Clear Vanilla (fabulous for white or light colored RI), Coconut, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Almond, Cherry and Pumpkin Pie Spice.

I would like White Chocolate as well, its one of my most frequently ordered flavours and it would be easier and more cost effective to be able to use a flavouring instead.

What about pomegranate or rhubarb or lavendar?

saberger Posted 23 Jan 2010 , 3:27pm

So am I to understand correctly that these are not oil based and can all be used in RI? Do you just replace the extract that is called for in recipes? Thanks for sharing the site. I will definitely check it out!

yes, that's right - they are fine in RI!

So far my favorites are clear vanilla, amaretto (!!!), caramel, raspberry and maple.

ditto on that icon_biggrin.gif

dandelion56602 Posted 23 Jan 2010 , 4:20pm

I want a Cream Cheese that tastes like Cream Cheese & a Marshmallow that tastes like Marshmallow.

A White Chocolate that is strong enough you don't have to use an entire bottle for one cake

And I had one more but having a brain fart at the moment

I do think I'm going to order a few to see how they are. Are they more concentrated like Lorann or like McCormick strength?

Darthburn Posted 23 Jan 2010 , 4:24pm

oh... and CHEESEBURGER

GeminiRJ Posted 23 Jan 2010 , 4:35pm

I'd LOVE root beer! Cotton candy would be interesting.

I wonder...if you added orange and peach together, would it taste like a Fuzzy Navel? Hmmm....

Darthburn Posted 23 Jan 2010 , 4:44pm

What about Orange and cream together... like a creamsicle? Gumball, Punch (Hawaiian) , S'more, Cream Soda, Kiwi, Popcorn, cream cheese, cheddar, Green Apple, and grapefruit.

No, they are not oil based and I used them all of the time in my RI without a problem. thumbs_up.gif

If it helps, this past summer I did an Orange Creamsicle Cookie and used Orange alone in the RI on a Vanilla Sugar Cookie and everyone said it tasted like an Orangesicle.

I dont use Lorann as the ones I have seen were not all-natural and I need to stick with that, so I cant compare that. McCormick does not offer the flavors I want, so I can't compare that either. I can say that each flavor will differ a bit as to how much you will need, so it is not one set amount for all flavors. When I need a small amount of different flavors , I mix up my full batch of Antonia74s RI and then pull out what I need and add the flavoring to taste. For the times that I use a full batch, here are the amounts that I have used (and written down icon_lol.gif ):

For a Full Batch of RI:
For Vanilla - 2 teaspoons Clear Vanilla (this one is fab for doing white and light colors or any time I need a nice flavored RI without another flavor to compete with the cookie flavor itself. This is my go to flavor and I buy it buy the quart saves money)
For Coconut 2 tsp. Coconut flavoring (I like a strong coconut taste and this has been a hit)
Lime 1/2 teaspoon Lime flavoring (you dont need much of this one.)

I cant recall the amounts I have used on the others. As mentioned, I add it to taste.

Hope that helps! icon_biggrin.gif

aundrea Posted 24 Jan 2010 , 2:59am

Yes, it is all-natural. All of their flavorings are.

I primarily do cookies and use it in both my dough and RI, but my daughter and I made some cakes with flavors her friend requested using Lime in one cake and Orange in another and they were great. We also used Coconut in the BC and in the fondant and it was excellent.

I personally think they are. It is not easy to find good quality all-natural extracts and flavorings and the variety they offer is great and unlike any other place I have found. I do buy the Clear Vanilla by the quart as the price is better that way and I use it a lot. I did buy the Coconut in the 8 oz. size as we are big coconut fans and that saved money as well.

crazyladybaker Posted 24 Jan 2010 , 12:34pm

I might have to try them out. They have some great flavors.

I would like a good cotton candy and green apple icon_biggrin.gif
