Not sure if this has been posted before, I looked using google but could not find the answer I need. So where is the best place to find good quality fair priced whole vanilla beans on the internet. I found so many sights but I just dont want to pay a "good" price just to get ulgy no good vanilla beans.
Thanks icon_smile.gif

My cousin owns It was even recently mentioned in Martha Stewart magazine as the best place to buy beans....he didn't even know the mention was going to be in there.

I have been getting my vanilla beans from the Arizona Vanilla Co. out of Phoenix and I found them to be very fresh and pretty good prices. I do like the Mexican Vanilla Bean for my chocolate cakes. icon_biggrin.gif

No problem, After my son moved to Phoenix and went to the Arizona Vanilla store and brought me back four different kinds of vanilla I was hooked. I never realized there were so many different kinds of vanilla beans. I found the Mexican beans smell like cocoa and adds alot to my chocolate cakes. I truly believe it is the vanilla that makes Satin Ice smell so good.

I just went to I am going to get the 8 variety sampler pack. I already have Tahitian Vanilla Beans and Madagascar Bourbon Beans but would love to try the other varieties. Plus I use my beans to make my own vanilla.
