McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract (1 fl. oz.)

Item Purchased: McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract (1 fl. oz.)
Location Purchased: Jewel / 1224 S. Wabash Ave. / Chicago, IL
Price: $4.71 + tax

Review: One fluid oz. for $4.71!!!! All I can say is that I am thankful that our cars don’t run on vanilla! What makes this seemingly ubiquitous flavor so expensive? Do secretive monks wring out vanilla vines in subterranean lairs, then sit down with a pint of fresh ice cream and watch Beauty and the Geek and silently cry? Even if that is how this small vial of flavor comes into being I wouldn’t want to pay this amount on principle (Monks with bad taste).

I know that it only takes a little bit of this elixer of flavor to turn even the most bland dessert into a mouth-watering treat, but I just can’t wrap my head around paying almost five bucks of my hard earned cash for a bottle this small. I may have to find other uses for vanilla extract than just cooking. Smelling salts for children perhaps? Eyedrops to make tears taste good? I’m open for suggestions. Tonight I will simply be using it to add to some whipping cream for the dessert I plan on making.

Then, maybe the next time I watch Beauty and the Geek, someone near me will lick up my tears.

Rating: 3.5 / 5
