  • Great Imitation of Vanilla

    4.5 out of 5

    I always use this imitation and like the flavour, of coarse you can’t beat the real deal but for the price you buy this for you can’t go wrong.


  • Tastes fine

    3.5 out of 5

    Tastes fine on its own but I prefer to shell out the cash for the real thing. This does the job but with imitation, you don’t know what you’re really getting so read the labels carefully


  • Imitation

    0.5 out of 5

    I am not a fan of the taste if the imitation vanilla, id rather go for the real deal any day! The taste of this is very strong not in a good way, ruins the flavour for me, especially in drinks


  • Must Have

    4.5 out of 5

    I buy this all the time, its my go to vanilla essence. At the price point that it is, if makes perfect economic sense. At the same time, it give me the vanilla falvouring that I need in the baking that I do. Could it be improved? Certainly, a little less water would be great, but then the price would surely go up the more concentrate it gets.


  • Great if your budget is tight.

    5 out of 5

    I normally use vanilla bean or paste but I 100% always have a bottle of this as backup in the pantry. It works brilliant altho you do need to use alot more to get the same flavour as the real stuff. Cheap alternative when i dont have any real vanilla.


  • not as much depth

    3.5 out of 5

    This imitation vanilla essence is a good substitute for the real stuff and hols up well in most baking that requires it. Sometimes i think the non imitation is essential though as it has a more depth of flavour.


  • Great

    Look in my pantry and this Vanilla Essence is there. Use it in cooking, drinks and cleaning. Is great putting a couple of drops in a bowl of water, when cleaning the fridge and wipe the fridge out with it…..Leaves a refreshing clean scent.

    Queen Essences Vanilla Imitation is an economical alternative to vanilla extract. The flavour is sensational and it is always good to have in the pantry. It gives cakes and biscuits a lovely smell and taste and I highly recommend it.


  • Smells devine!!

    4.5 out of 5

    I grew up smelling this and always wanting to taste it and one day I did… don’t if you get the chance. A swig is not a good idea and does not go down as well as the smell. Makes all my cooked goodies and treats taste just amazing though.

    I can’t remember a time when we haven’t had this in our panty!! Although it’s imitation, it works brilliantly at adding a subtle and pleasant vanilla flavour and for a fraction of the price!

    This product is good for adding to cakes, puddings etc, as it is quite economical, flavoursome and no one knows it is not true vanilla


  • Cook's delight

    4.5 out of 5

    Queen Immitation Vanilla Essence (label on the bottle) is suitable for a lot of cooking – cakes, slices, biscuits; homemade icecream, whipped cream. It has been around for several decades. My Mum has a recipe which belonged to her grandparents in which recipes were written in the 1950s or cuttings glued in.


  • Good for imitation

    4 out of 5

    Not the best option as its imitation not extract but it does taste nice and is good value for money in the larger bottle. I prefer vanilla paste
