Source: Was recently in Mexico and was confused as to why Vanilla was 10% of the price here.
It's still cheap, but most times it's junk.
I haven't bought beans in a couple months, but last time I bought it was like $5/per.I used to get whole vanilla beans for $1-2 each.... They are now like $8-15 each
You could damn near add another zero to that price today.
Not quite but someone in the gallon of BBQ sauce thread posted a link that had a gallon of Vanilla that was $500.
