I browse, I look, I see, I ponder.
That’s what I sometimes do at the grocery store. I mean, it’s like a food library in there! Find the cover appealing? Pick it up and have a good look. Pick up a box, read the label, discover what’s inside. If I had the time, I could probably be in a grocery store for hours.
On this particular occasion, I zoned in on a bottle of Club House Pure Vanilla Extract. I always wonder about words like ‘pure’ and ‘natural’ so I wanted to take a closer look. I mean, how pure is it really? There’s really only one way to find out.
Guess what I found?
Product Review: What Ingredients are in the Club House Pure Vanilla Extract?
I turn the bottle of Club House Pure Vanilla Extract around and these are ingredients I find: water, alcohol, sugar, vanilla bean extractives.
Huh…well, it’s not a terrible ingredient list but it does have a hidden hit of sugar that I didn’t expect. I did a review on the Simply Organic vanilla extract back in April 2013 and their ingredient list was similar except it used organic ingredients and didn’t have any added sugar.
I wonder what the Club House Pure Vanilla Extract tastes like. I have no idea since I didn’t purchase it but I do wonder.
Just a Thought…
This is one of those posts that have me wondering. The Club House Pure Vanilla Extract is a decent price. Its ingredients aren’t bad and are quite comparable to its organic counterpart which costs a whole lot more. Granted, it does have sugar added in to it so that’s something to ponder but at the same time, when you do use vanilla in a recipe, you only use about a teaspoon which means you wouldn’t be adding much more hidden sugar to your recipe.
Thus, I guess the question is: how good is the Club House Pure Vanilla Extract? Is it worth buying the organic stuff when the Club House Pure Vanilla Extract is somewhat comparable?
Looks like I may just be picking up the Club House Pure Vanilla Extract the next time I’m at the grocery store. I’m curious to see how it tastes!
