Better Stevia French Vanilla
I couldn't wait for this product to arrive. I looked so greatly forward to that special cup of coffee that I had planned. When it came, I forbore to use it until the next morning. Morning came, coffee was made and poured and finally the single drop of french vanilla was added. I tasted. It was very chemical tasting and I screwed up my face with the bitterness of it. Shocking!
I have read so many good reviews that I was prepared to love this stuff. Later I tried it again...still in disbelief and hoping that it was just a quirk of some kind and expecting to be proved wrong with that first try! Yuck..same thing. I gave up and sent it back.

Better Stevia French Vanilla
This is an excellent product. I use it for sweetening plain Greek yoghurt and as the sweetener in 3-ingredient chocolate bars. Very good result!

I Love this stuff
I have read some negative reviews for this product, but let me tell you, I have used this for YEARS. I would not want to be without it if I can ever help it. I used to put it in my plain yogurt, but now I am dairy free so I now use it primarily in my oatmeal. Sometimes I use it in my coffee.

I add it to coffee and unsweetened yogurt. It provides a pleasant sweet vanilla taste, is natural and has no carbohydrates.

I love this sweetener. It has a very strong vanilla taste so I tend to use half a dropper full plus some regular NOW Foods stevia - yeah I like it really sweet :). I also use it in place of vanilla extract.

Flavor is good but has a buttery smell to it.

I like the idea of having a natural sweetner with no after taste, no calories and tastes great. It only takes a few drops so lasts a long time. The glycerite is a bit messy but its worth it.

I've purchased this product on a regular basis since becoming aware of Swanson and their great prices. You can find this product (but not as many flavors) in the grocery store and you would be paying 50% more. The price paid here is of great value. My family uses the liquid stevia in our plain greek yogurt. We especially like the taste of vanilla.

This vanilla flavored stevia is wonderful. It adds so much to your beverage. I have been a fan of stevia for years. I only use that in my tea. Sometimes I would add vanilla to my tea and now I don't have to. I will order this product again.Very flavorful.

Love this stevia
This is my favorite sweetner for anything I drink. The flavor is wonderful. I think that Better Stevia is the best quality by far of all the other brands I've tried.

Just love it! Use it in coffee, good flavor w/o the bitter taste.

Glad I found this
I started using this product on a weight loss program and am so glad that I found it. It is tasty and flavorful and makes me look forward to my first coffee in the morning. No after taste like other sweeteners and I like the fact that it is natural. Will keep buying it for sure.

Product - Not to my liking
I have bought 3 or 4 other brands similar to this, and this particular product leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I gave it way to someone who does like it, but it triggers the want to eat when using this in coffee, and will not use the product.
No complaints about Swanson - they have been excellent, I just don't like this particular product.
I will not buy this again.

Messy & Gel like substance
Tried this only because you don't carry the sweetleaf english toffee; which is our favorite. Unfortunately this was not good. It is very gel like; the lid will not screw on completely due to the amount of gel substance in this product. This is not a good product; I believe they added the gel to take away the bitterness but caused other probems. We did not return it as the flavor was not terrible but still not as good as the sweetleaf vanilla.

I've been hearing about flavored stevia and was excited to try it, but I was somewhat disappointed. This does sweeten, but with an alcohol taste and no discernable vanilla flavor.

My boyfriend loves it
My boyfriend and I use to get a simular one sold at whole foods for $16. I'm constantly looking for alternatives on Swanson's and I found this. Great buy and tastes great!

I love the taste of the NOW brand French Vanilla. I also like the price compared to other brands of Vanilla stevia. I put this in cakes, chocolate candy & coffee. I do not like the mess of liquid getting on the outside of the bottle.

Not for me
I bought this thinking I would have a good alternative to the commercial vanilla flavoring I add to my coffee. This was not a good flavor to me. It was very strong and not pleasant to me. It was also sticky and leaked out of the bottle if accidentally tipped over. Have not tried it in anything else - just did not like the taste and afraid I would "ruin" anything I put it into.Everyone's tastes are different, but it was not good to me.

ABOUT NOW STEVIA
I was not expecting the NOW Stevia to have such a gel quality. It was not real thick but i was not excpecting anything. I did not care for it at all and would never order it again.

This is a staple in my cupboard at all times! I use it instead of vanilla extract when I making cheesecakes, lattes, Kefir and anything else that calls for vanilla flavoring. Each dropper full measures to 1/4 tsp. and that makes it easy as pie to add to recipes. Tastes super in my cold coffee drinks!

This is vanilla heaven!
Good grief this stuff is good. I put 7 drops in my coffee every day (as well as dark chocolate stevia) and cannot rave enough about it. Also, put 4-5 drops of the vanilla stevia in your hot chocolate. Wow! It is good. You can't travel with it if it has been opened because the liquid will seep out the top if it tips at all. So just use it at home and travel with the French Vanilla Stevia packets. I highly recommend this. There's nothing else like it.

I really like this product. It makes my tea more enjoyable

I love this stuff and use it many times every day. Swanson's is by far and away the best price I have found on it anywhere. Thanks, Sawnson!
