LeRuth's Vanilla Flavor

Sale price$ 29.99

LeRuth's Vanilla Flavor is a deliciously distinctive product with a flavor and aroma you'll love. Each 8 ounce bottle contains delicious vanilla flavor, and two whole vanilla beans imported from Madagascar. Originally developed for the famous westbank restaurant LeRuth's over 60 years ago, it is the same vanilla that we use in our Original Pralines.  It’s a 2 fold vanilla, twice as strong as ordinary vanilla extract, which allows you to use half of what a recipe calls for.

Grown in Madagascar, and then processed in Louisiana, this vanilla is aged for a minimum of 1 year after being bottled.
