*Gift Ideas- Spread Holiday Cheer with Nielsen-Massey Vanillas and Giveaway

Closed

Winners #31


Since 1907 Nielsen-Massey has been crafting the finest vanillas and flavorings. All of their products are Gluten-Free, Allergen-Free, GMO-Free. They even carry a line of Organic Vanillas! I am very familiar with their vanilla extracts with my favorite being their Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. I use it in desserts and to flavor coffee. Aside from pure vanilla extracts, Nielsen-Massey also has other flavor extracts from almond and peppermint to rose water. They also have pastes, powders and sugars. You can even purchase several types of whole vanilla beans. When it comes to quality vanilla products and flavorings they are the company to go to for your baking and cooking needs.


I was sent a bottle of Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar for review. I was pretty excited because I had not previously tried their sugars. First of all I love the way it is packaged in a glass bottle that resembles an old apothecary bottle. Next the smell! This stuff smells amazing, subtle sweetness with a pure vanilla scent. If they decided to turn this into a body spray, I am not going to lie, I would be the first to buy it. Last but certainly not least, the taste. This sugar is not overly sweet which I love. It's wonderful for adding a little sweetness to coffee and tea. Mix it with cinnamon and it elevates the taste of cinnamon sugar toast to the next level. It would also be great used as a rimming salt for your upcoming Holiday cocktails.

The people over at Nielsen-Massey have a wonderful DIY gift idea they would like to share with you using Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar.

This recipe for Vanilla Body Scrub from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, included below, is the perfect gift for friends, sisters, daughters, or anyone who deserves a bit of pampering this holiday season. Fragrant Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar gently exfoliates while olive oil moisturizes, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and rejuvenated.
