Authentic Mexican Vanilla Extract is quite expensive.
If you found cheap Mexican Vanilla extract in Mexico, it was probably made partly or completely from Coumarin, a natural plant extract that tastes like vanilla - but is also used as a blood thinner and a rat poison.

Even in small doses, it can be toxic - depending on your age and health.

Be careful.

"Pure Honey" sold in America actually is not required to contain any honey at all.
Most Pure Honey sold in America does contain honey - but not more than 50%.

Do yo suppose that Mexico's Food Purity laws are any better than the ones in America??
