Hello :) 

i live in Canada and I've been finding that vanilla extract overall is very expensive and so I'm confused on where to look. What are some good brands of vanilla extract that aren't too expensive? 

Thank you!

I'm Canadian too. In Ontario. There has been an acute shortage of vanilla beans so vanilla is at a record high price. No matter where you purchase, it's gonna be expensive. I buy my pure vanilla at Costco. There Kirkland brand. Nit cheap, but less expensive than orher places. I use to make my vanilla years ago. Come fall, going to bite the bullet, by some vanilla bean pods and start making my own again. Initially will be expensive start up, but I'll get a massive bottle from 5-6 bean pods. Double what I can buy. Does take several months to age tho..

I recommend buying in bulk—yes, you will spend more money, but with vanilla prices so high these days, it’s by far the cheapest solution in the long run. It also keeps keeps for years…definitely 5+, probably 10+ years.

I buy 64 oz (about 1.9 L) at a time, but I’ve seen up to 1 gallon (3.8 L)

Good Luck!
