I’m not sure how “vanilla” came to be used to refer to things that are ordinary, plain, run-of-the-mill or nothing special. Maybe it has something to do with vanilla being the most common flavor of ice cream and most widely used flavor in pastries and confections. But that widespread use of the flavor actually indicates its popularity.
Vanilla is the second most expensive of all the spices, behind saffron. Part of the reason for that expense is how labor intensive it is to cultivate and process vanilla. It can take months for those long, thin, black pods to be ready for market after they’ve been harvested.
Vanilla is among my favorite flavors. It’s my go-to for ice cream, milkshakes and cake. And it’s right up near the top for soda. So I take some offense, at least as much offense as one can take in relation to a flavor, when people use the term “vanilla” to denigrate something.
When I read the description of Baker’s Bean from Vape Moar my first thought was, “These people understand.” My second thought was, “I hope Baker’s Bean is half as good as this description.”
That description begins, “It’s always a wonder that people use the word ‘vanilla’ to describe something simple and plain! Vanilla is a cornerstone flavor.” It goes on to say, “Baker’s Bean offers a true and complex vanilla flavor without the overpowering oiliness of many vanilla vapes. If you’re the type of vaper who loves creamy vanilla vapes, but don’t want the cloying sweetness or other flavors to get in the way of your flavor experience, Baker’s Bean is the true, pure experience of vanilla in your vape.”
My concerns were short lived. Baker’s Bean is every bit as good as advertised, more maybe. It’s wonderfully pure vanilla flavor, smooth, sweet and a little delicate. The inhale and the exhale are both nothing but pure vanilla, not sharp, oily or perfumey like some other vanilla based ejuices I’ve tried. And Vape Moar didn’t clutter up that taste experience by adding extraneous flavors. There’s nothing custard or caramel like here, just vanilla.
The vapor itself is creamy and a little warm. The throat hit is mild and the aroma is reminiscent of a vanilla cake fresh out of the oven. Baker’s Bean is vanilla at its best. I vaped it until the bottle was gone, which, based on my affinity for vanilla, pretty quickly. It was wonderful in every situation, every time of day. If you like vanilla, then you will find a new favorite in Baker’s Bean. I have. But do yourself a favor, splurge and order the 120 ml bottle, Baker’s Bean is that good.
