Grocery Aisle Rip-Offs
Vanilla is one of the most mislabelled foods, since packaging of products flavoured with artificial vanilla plays up the 'vanilla' and plays down the artificiality of the ingredients. Real vanilla extract is more expensive, but professionals bakers and home bakers swear by it.
SOLUTION? Buy trusted vanilla that is clearly labelled real vanilla extract. It's about three times as expensive as artificial vanilla.
