Vanilla Bean Paste

I was pleasantly surprised at how big the bottle was when I bought it, I just presumed it would be smaller. The smell is wonderful but I found to get the flecks to show up, you have to put quite a lot in which then made the flavour intense. However, I am very pleased with it and would definitely recommend.

Main Ingredient: SUGAR!!by Nadine

3 stars out of 5

Vanilla Bean Paste

Oh, darn! I ordered this from the new, comprehensive Lakeland catalogue. SHOULD have gone online, because I now see SUGAR as the first (main) ingredient which presumably helps to preserve the vanilla essence and seeds. Unfortunately, the paste won't be very helpful in making the sugar-free ice cream which is my current project. As a convenient alternative to expensive vanilla beans, looking at the recommended 1 15ml tbsp = 1 vanilla bean, it might just work out as slightly less expensive - IF you don't mind the SUGAR.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry about the sugar content in the paste. I can confirm that sugar is the main ingredient in the paste.

Vanilla Bean Paste

I bought this online before Christmas to try and make some sweet things as hubby loves vanilla. WOW am I so glad I did, hubby has FLIPPED over this and can't get enough...we use it in nearly everything (he even uses it as a secret ingredient with his chilli, gives an unusual flavour that is very nice). But my cookies, cakes, muffins, creamy desserts, homemade ice cream, etc all come out with a dreamy taste! It truly deserves more than 5 stars as we can't seem to get enough of it!

Vanilla Bean Paste

This vanilla bean paste is delicious and much more economical than buying pods. A little tip I would like to pass on though is to lightly oil the spoon before dispensing, as it clings to the spoon.

Vanilla Bean Paste

Who knew that this would BLOW vanilla extract out of the water! It is so much more flavoursome and the flecks of vanilla beans make your baking look so much more amazing. It is more expensive but it is worth it.

Vanilla Bean Paste

I was just a bit disappointed with this products, considering the price. I used it in home-made icecream, but found I had to use almost half a bottle before I could even faintly taste the vanilla flavour. The only thing I liked were the flecks of vanilla pod made the icecream look really professional. I probably won't bother buying this product again.

A note from the team: Thanks for your feedback. You could add a dash of our vanilla essence (product reference 5650) to make the vanilla bean paste stretch further. We'll contact you to help.

Have used this in muffins and ice cream and is delicious, rich and warming and although may seen expensive is well worth the money as it will last quite a while.

Wonderful product!by Ms Paul

Vanilla Bean Paste

I love vanilla, but often use 2tsp of supermarket vanilla extract so I can taste it properly (hence the tiny bottles don't last long!) This is a completely different story -rich luxurious vanilla taste (along with the expensive looking seeds), and I'm only using the amount specified in the receipe! I will only be getting this from now on, and though it isn't cheap I'm sure it will last me far longer than the supermarket equivalent, and is clearly of far superior quality. Try it - you won't be disappointed! (PS, can I echo the request for a dropper in the lid or something else ingenious!)

Vanilla Bean Paste

I make lots of vanilla ice-cream and have switched from infusing vanilla pods in the heated cream & milk to using a tablespoon of this paste. It's an utterly natural flavour and leads to ice-cream with the authentic speckled appearance of real ice-cream.

I really love vanilla and this is the best I've tried. Put's vanilla essence to shame.

Vanilla Bean Paste

It just evokes that feeling of comfort and warmth. Vanilla is delicious and this product does it justice. Brilliant, I loved it. I previously bought some in a small tub but this is much better value and not compromised by more volume. I would, without doubt, recommend this for any baker or 'milk shake' maker - anyone who uses vanilla flavouring should try this and never look back. A pipette built into the lid might be a help to stop drips and for easier portioning but thats just an idea. The product itself is fab.

Vanilla Bean Paste

I completely love this product, possibly the best thing I have bought from Lakeland! The flavour is excellent and its wonderful to have the little black seeds in my baking efforts. I always used to put off using actual vanilla pods because of the cost but with just a tea spoon of this it looks like you've used a real vanilla pod but at a fraction of the price. Will always buy this now instead of the extract.
