Madagascar Vanilla Beans

The first time I used them, I made sweet potatoes with Trader Joe's Organic Maple Syrup and Raw Honey. The best sweet potatoes I've ever had. I will never use vanilla extract again. Outstanding!

- Terri

Delicious homemade vanilla coffee creamer

I bought these to use in a homemade coffee creamer and it turned out great! I will definitely use them again.

- Lauren


Perfect for my ice cream, custard or any dish needing vanilla flavor.

Amazing Rice Krispy Treats!

My amazing friend made my a rice krspy treat wedding cake, but not just any rice krispy treat wedding cake, a brown butter vanilla bean rice krispy treat wedding cake. She used the Simply Organic brand Madagascar Vanilla Beans and I have to tell you, these were the most delicious rice krispy treats I'd ever had...and I overheard a few people asking about the amazing vanilla flavor. I'm so excited to see that Thrive has them as a discounted price. I will definitely be buying some for my pantry.

New to vanilla bean

Shipped quickly and securely. I haven't used it yet. I hope to make ice cream with it. It smells amazing.

Rich flavor

Whole Madagascar vanilla beans are some of the most rich and flavorful vanilla beans you will fine. They have a divine flavor in baking. A little always goes a long way with these.

The only thing I don't like it that like all vanilla beans they are a bit pricey. I only buy them when something calls specifically for vanilla beans.

- K. Gilson

Great Taste

Nearly all the cooks on TV use whole Madagascar vanilla beans. They say it has a deeper, richer vanilla taste than the bottled kind. When I saw Thrive has reduced the price on the Simply Organic brand, I added it to my order.

Television chefs make cooking with a whole vanilla bean look easy. I may not have the proper handheld grinder for this type of organic sweetener, but I tried it. My first batch of cookies tasted as if there were crunchy bits of vanilla bean baked inside. I've not given up just yet.

With Thrive, I can afford to try new foods and spices to locate the one I really like. Thrive is the best online health market!

Best Price I've Seen

These have been some great-quality whole vanilla beans. The bottle seems a bit large for the amount of the beans that it includes, but I suppose they have to have some room inside the container. It still seems a bit expensive, but Thrive is, by far, the best price that I've ever seen on these. I just wish it was easier to find cheaper vanilla beans.

Great brand

Simply Organic is a wonderful brand. They take pride in selling quality products. I love their vanilla beans, but find I have to use them in moderation because of the cost. It's a good thing a little goes a long way with these!

Using real, whole vanilla beans adds so much more flavor to dishes. I'll never go back to imitation flavor!

- Jon Heslop

Good price

Will this is the best price I have found yet on whole vanilla beans I am still upset at how much they cost. I use them in baking and in wine making and it becomes very pricey.

I am grateful for Thrive Market. I get great discounts through them on the best products. Simply Organic is definitely a favorite of mine.

- Kirk R

Hard to judge how much to use

I like the taste of vanilla in cookies and cakes, but I'm still getting used to using the whole beans. Simply Organic makes great spices that I've used before, but wrestling with the beans has been a challenge.

I would love it if they gave you an idea how to translate from liquid extract to using beans in terms of measurements. But the flavor is really good.

- C. Robinson

Works really well

If you bake a lot, you'll really like this vanilla. Unlike the liquid form, it tastes more pure to me.

You don't need a lot because the bean is really strong and can overwhelm your desserts. I've used it in for cookies, muffins and cakes and found them more flavorful with the whole beans than the liquid.

- Camila

Fantastic flavor

I bake a lot, especially cookies and cakes, and vanilla is essential. I wanted to start using natural vanilla in its pure form, so I tried Simply Organic's version.

I'm very happy with the way it works. My cookies have a deeper, richer flavor. The pure bean is so much stronger than the liquid, and it tastes smokier. It's a great product.

- Cornelius Richards

Really Fresh!

These vanilla beans are nice and fresh. They smell great! I will definitely buy this product again!The Thrive price is great too!!!
