I have ordered a 3rd batch of these high quality pods,having just used the last one from a previous order probably over a year ago, it was just as fresh as the first one out of the pack. They are very good quality and a good size at only a fraction of the price the supermarkets charge for much smaller pods. Excellent free delivery service, can thoroughly recommend.

Not too much excitement. The taste is allright, but I am used to very fat pods with nice gooey vanillapaste inside. This had a very fine, a bit dry vanilla corn inside. To pods was about one teaspoon of vanilla
A bit disappointed in the size of the pods, had expected a fat pod, my pods were very standard, like the one's you buy in any drug store.
disappointed! (compared to cheaper pack)

Little dryer than I'm used to. Will go back to the cheaper pack. This is an comparison with the outstanding quality I'm used to from vanilla Mart.
fantastic quality with great service at an unbelievable price!

I have purchased these pods for making creme brûlée at Christmas & did a trial run last week
The quality is top notch as I've tried Swartz brand and they were definatley not as good as the vanilla mart product I've purchased
Not only that the Swartz product is £2.50 for ONE where you get FIVE from vanilla mart for £4.25
What more can I say FANTASTICO

This is my second batch of these vanilla pods, they are perfect in various baking recipes i have tried. The pods smell gorgeous, full of beans, and have a nice texture to them. They arrived well packaged with instructions on how best to store them which i thought was a nice idea. Overall from buying to using the pods i am extremely happy with my purchase and will look no further than Vanilla Mart for future stocks of this superb, quality product.
sublime sticky vanilla goodness!

This is our 2nd order from Vanillamart.
Both orders were promptly despatched with great speed!
The latest batch (500g) of Premium madagascan Bourbon vanilla pods is as fresh as can be, with a very substantial shelf life (justifying a larger qty order straight away).
Pods prove to be plump & sticky, all in excellent condition & clearly picked & handled all down the line with care.
Packaging is high grade & durable, we look forward to "needing" our next order from a company we find gives good deals, quality of product & service!
Very happy repeat customers.
Thanks for making contact simple & responding quickly & efficiently!
Whilst there are other companies out there selling similar product, I would not gamble the taste & quality of stock via Vanilla-mart for the sake of "possibly" saving a few pence.
"exceptional quality & the go to company for all things vanilla"
Great Service and Product

I came home yesterday from a day out to find that the beans had been delivered. Before I ever saw the package- I could smell them- my entire home smelled like vanilla and upon opening the package I was not disappointed. Beautiful pods, aromatic, and plump. Some of the most gorgeous beans I've ever seen. Will definitely order again!
Fantastic Pods and service

I bought 50 of thes pods based on the price alone. I'm amazed at the quality.I've never seen larger or more supple pods and they smell far superior to anything else I've ever used.I will be back for more very soon.
The service was fantastic too,I bought these on Sat evening and they were delivered on Tuesday.I was also sent emails to let me know how my order was progressing.
I'm very impressed,Well done and thank you Vanilla Mart.
