Vanilla Beans - Madagascar Bourbon - GRADE A - Various Sizes
Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans


The term 'plain vanilla' certainly does not apply to the vanilla bean. After using real vanilla beans, it is easy to understand how this spice has become the cornerstone of pastry and baking. Vanilla beans are the most costly form of vanilla flavouring, but are without question the best.

Our Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans are rich in natural vanillin and carry the classic vanilla flavour. These beans have a smooth, rich, sweet flavour and are the thinnest of the vanilla beans grown. We are proud to carry the highest quality Madagascar vanilla beans available.

Our Bourbon vanilla beans are grown on the island of Madagascar. These beans are smooth, rich and sweet. Bourbon beans are highly prized by professional pastry chefs and bakers.

Vanilla beans available in packages ranging from 10 beans to 9 lb bulk orders. If you require larger quantities of vanilla beans, please contact us at info@vanillafoodcompany.com for bulk pricing.

5 of 5 Best vanilla beans October 7, 2020
Reviewer: Laura from Caledon East, ON Canada  
I’ve been making vanilla extract for the past 16 years. These are the best vanilla beans I ever purchased. I used them to make double fold vanilla extract with rum, brandy and vodka, about 8 beans for 8 oz of alcohol. I definitely recommend purchasing the vanilla beans.

5 of 5 Fast shipping, great products, well priced May 5, 2020
Reviewer: Jessy from Toronto, ON Canada  
Was happy to come across the Vanilla Food Company while looking for local online stores to order some baking ingredients and products that are hard to find in store right now given the current situation. I ordered on a Sunday and received my order on Tuesday! It was exactly what I was looking for and was carefully packaged. My husband was so impressed that he too shared the site with his friends. Looking forward to purchasing more from this store for years to come :)

5 of 5 Best Vanilla! April 28, 2020
Reviewer: Shelly from Toronto, ON Canada  
I got these a week ago and have made creme brulee and vanilla extract with them. These are some of the best beans I've ever bought and would definitely recommend them for most baked goods. I only use vanilla beans for dishes that are lighter and the flavours that are vanilla focused and i would use extracts for everything else. Making your own extract with these beans is sooooo much better than the store bought stuff.

5 of 5 Beautiful, plump and fragrant! November 6, 2013
Reviewer: Connie M from Toronto, ON Canada  
I received these beans today after a long-awaited 2 days (they are SUPER fast at shipping!) and just made some vanilla extract.  The beans are moist, smell amazing and I can't believe how many were in the half pound bag!  Last weekend, I purchased 2 for $7!  I'm looking forward to trying this extract...and to baking new items with this surplus of beans!

5 of 5 Amazing flavor! September 30, 2013
Reviewer: Cathy A from Brampton, ON Canada  
My family bought 1/2 lbs of these beans and made pure vanilla extract with vodka, bourbon and rum.  Very easy to do, just requires some planning.  We started making the extract in September and bottled it in 4 oz dark brown bottles late December.  We gave them away as Christmas presents in 2012 along with homemade cookies and treats.  No re-gifting happen here!
