    I think I’m going to just buy some vanilla beans from Ebay – I’ve never had trouble ordering from Ebay before. If anyone else is interested, please PM me. I’ve only had one PM so far, so unlikely I’ll be able to order the cheapest 1kg quantity. Depending on how many people are potentially interested, I can let you know how much I can get them for. I’ll put in an order in a few days.

    If your going to order them off Ebay go with the Madagascan ones, or better yet if you can find some reunion.

    Vanilla pods are a bit like diamonds, the quality ranges from absolutely fabulous to just rubbish. And there are the imposter’s that pose as the real deal, while they are Vanillas they’re not Vanilla planifolia.

    Sometimes you get what you pay for, just be careful that you do get what you have paid for.

    I have been buying organic vanilla beans from a Fruit & Veg Shop in Caloundra, Qld. Brand is Sunshine Vanilla and I’ve just noted they’ve recently lanched an online store. Pricing is very reasonable compared to what is available at Coles & Woolworths and I think the quality is far superior.

    Here is the link http://www.sunshinevanilla.com.au

    I have bought vanilla beans from e-bay before and have found the quality to be a bit “hit & miss”

    Thanks for that link sonne_mcc.I just received my 250g bundle this week and am absolutely delighted with the quality. highly recommend these beans to all you other vanilla junkies out there 🙂

    Thanks for the feedback wozzell. Might have to give these guys a go, I think because I never got around to ordering any vanilla beans….

    I’ll go in with you Bel. Just 100g or 200g. I live in Barossa so will probably come and get them.

    I know I’m dragging up an old thread but does anyone know much about the vanilla shortage going on around the world and how much vanilla has gone up by in the last couple of years?

    I’m only asking as we bought a few pods yesterday, they were still cheaper and better looking than the ones in the supermarket.
