    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Natural Vanilla Flavor This is a good basic vanilla ice cream mix. I have also used it as a base to make other flavors like peanut butter ice cream, banana ...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best homemade icecream I am a chocolate lover, but it have to say the vanilla starter makes the BEST ice cream! The Macassar vanilla just pops. My family looks forward to dessert at my house, as there is always vanilla ice cream to add to any dish...or my husband just wants the ice cream!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Very Best Have used these ice cream starters for several years, and they really can't be beat! My favorite recipe is the Vanilla flavor with 3 chopped Butterfinger candy bars and 2 TBS of Kahlua added during the last five minutes of freezing. Pretty much to die for!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is really good A bit pricey and makes a small amount however two packets per container and it is delicious - so much better than store bought and so much easier than doing it from scratch. I usually buy it online when they are offering a 20% discount and free shipping then get the 2 canister option. Love it when mixing in mini chocolate chips!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vanilla Starter This is delicious all by itself but even better if you add things to it. I love chocolate chip mint so I add mint extract (1/2 -1 tsp) and then add mini chips when it's time for add-ins. It is so easy - no cooking egg yolks, etc.
