Mexican Vanilla

For anyone out there who knows how delicious Mexican vanilla is, I just found a local source that sells it. In fact, the company is just two blocks west of where I live in Springville. Who would have thought?! Until fairly recently, my family always knew people who knew people (including a former 100+-year-old neighbor) who could get us Mexican vanilla directly from Mexico. We put it in whipped cream, cookies, custard, ice cream, and anything else that called for vanilla. It made everything better. Well, now you can get Mexican vanilla without any special connections. It isn't cheap, but I urge you to give it a try. It's called Blue Cattle Truck Mexican Vanilla. It has won awards and been featured on the Martha Stewart Show. Check out this link.
