Choice Pure Vanilla Extract

Choice Pure Vanilla Extract is the best vanilla you can buy! Rich. Complex. One of a kind.

Ken Cook, longtime president of Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, searched for the highest quality vanilla and uncovered R.R. Lochhead’s 100-year family legacy in Paso Robles, California. Cook’s Vanilla represents our drive to produce the finest vanilla extracts. Only ten percent of the world’s vanilla beans are picked when perfectly mature. We harvest the fully vine-ripened beans and cure them ourselves to assure a delicate, intense, beautiful vanilla. Through our cold extraction, we have captured this exotic essence in a bottle.

The quintessential vanilla extract that no kitchen can be without. Cook’s Choice Pure Vanilla Extract is our premium pure vanilla extract, made with the world’s best beans. We use more vanilla beans in our extract than most extracts you buy, providing added strength and richness. Additionally, we go directly to the source to find our vanilla beans. Therefore, we only use the absolute best vanilla for our extract. Cook’s Choice is a necessity for cakes, cookies and ice cream, but can be added to almost every dessert to introduce sweetness and complexity while elevating the flavor notes of other ingredients.

Cook’s Choice Pure Vanilla Extract is made with the finest vanilla beans from Madagascar. Vanilla beans from Madagascar are of the Vanilla Planifolia variety. Often referred to as Bourbon vanilla beans, vanilla beans from this region are named after the French Bourbon Islands, one of which was Madagascar. This variety of vanilla is universally pleasing and enhances other flavors.

Flavor notes: Creamy, rich, sweet and warm. Enhances other flavors.

    I think this extract is fine, the only complaint i have is with the bottle. Every time I use it, the vanilla drips down the side.

    This is the best Vanilla extract ever!

  21. Julie Farrell (verified owner)

    The flavor this vanilla imparts to my whoopie pie recipe is exceptional. I give out the recipe and people ask about my “secret ingredient” – it’s Cook’s Vanilla!

  22. Harriette Perkins (verified owner)

    This is absolutely the only vanilla I use. I discovered this brand many years ago in local supermarkets. Now it is only availabel thrugh your site and I order it. I will not use any other kind.

  23. Christine Newman (verified owner)

    Its the best vanilla I have ever used. I do alot of baking all year but especially during the Christmas holidays and I would use nothing but Cooks Pure Vanilla. Its wonderful and the price can’t be beat!

  24. Lezlie Brown (verified owner)

    This is the only Vanilla that I use! I use the extract, puree, and the powder. I always make sure not to run out. Your vanilla is the very best. I believe that it makes everything that I make even better. I also use all the rest of your flavors but not to the extent that I use vanilla.
    Thank you!

    I have entered cookies in the county fair for four years running. All four years I have either won best in show or first place in the catagory. I believe Cook’s Pure Vanilla Extract is the reason. Everyone always wants my cookie recipies. I have used other extracts from Cook Flavoring and they are all the best.

  26. Ted Runyon (verified owner)

    the vanilla is fresh and bold in flavor. This product makes all foods, and baked goods that require vanilla to be at its best flavor.
    Thank you for a 5 star product.

  27. Almeda R. Shields (verified owner)

    It has been a rather long time since I last (amnd first) ordered from Cook’s Flavoring. Their vanilla is so good and so concentrated that a bottle will last a good long while!! I liked it so much I ordered it as a gift for a friend who bakes quite a bit. She is thrilled with the vanilla and I’m sure she will reorder when she needs more – her name is Elizabeth Castle; Charleston, SC

    Cook’s flavorings are wonderful and so very reasonable. In talking with the owner a time ago, I concluded the products are exceptional because a real gentleman makes them! My suggestion is: do not hesitate to buy Cook’s flavorings. You won’t be sorry.

    This is the secret to fantastic flavor. I have even tried Nielsen-Massey which is just overpriced, mundane flavor in comparison to Cook’s. Using for 8 years and will never try anything else again.
