I always buy vanilla in Cozumel. Even if Agua (Water) is the first ingredient listed, it still has a richer flavor than our vanilla. Los Cincos Soles always has good prices. Try if you can to get vanilla that has vanilla bean listed as its first ingredient. We have a Mexican grocery store in our town and they sell vanilla too. It's pretty cheap, $1.89 for about 4 oz. Haven't used it yet, but the ingredients are listed as Vanilla Bean in extract, Alcohol 35%............wonder how that will taste??? You just can't go to Cozumel without buying vanilla and something silver!
