VANILLA

What they are saying about vanilla:


And that’s one thing that helps me is I learn it blandly, vanilla, then I don’t try to act it too soon because you start to act it, and you kind of go away from what the next sentence is, what the next paragraph is. So get it down so it kind of can – it’s in there so you can then, as I call it, dance on top of it.

Jeff Daniels


I think of Superman as the ultimate vanilla hero. He’s this perfect refugee, this perfect immigrant from another planet who embodies the American dream.

Antje Traue


I’m so spoiled – I must have a Starbucks vanilla latte every day.

Katie Holmes


I don’t mind being described as vanilla in certain ways.

Cal Ripken, Jr.


Whether it’s repro rights, violence against women, or just plain old vanilla sexism, most issues affecting women have one thing in common – they exist to keep women ‘in their place.’ To make sure that we’re acting ‘appropriately,’ whatever that means.

Tell me if this is wrong. Justin Bieber… is 100 percent like watching Vanilla Ice all over again. It’s exactly the same. Well, as soon as Bieber has a hit, he’ll be like Vanilla Ice.

Kid Rock


There you have it. Out of 32 flavors, I choose vanilla. Any other questions?

  1. I noticed my reply above showed up as “anonymous”. I answered on a different computer and I guess I hadn’t identified myself properly.., but it was me.., Ben. I’m just about ready to scoop up some Blue Bell Ice-cream now so good night.

  2. I will take vanilla any time. Apparently we are born to like vanilla, something to do with the maternal feelings I once read. I don’t drink coffee so get my vanilla in the ice cream.

    • Vanilla comes from a type of orchid. MOST orchids produce chemicals that do BAD things to the human nervous system — they’re toxic. The vanillas, though, chose a more peaceful path: they produce chemicals that affect the human nervous system by making us feel relaxed and happy. (This is an extreme oversimplification, but it’s true.) If it had anything to do with “maternal feelings” (associations with “Mom”?), I’d avoid the stuff, but I like vanilla in coffee or tea or ice cream or cookies…

      • I’ve been told the smell of vanilla will help sell a house, so if you are marketing your place, buy bottle of vanilla extract and pour a bit in the drain. A comforting smell and taste. Homey. Tastes good, too πŸ™‚

  3. I’m not really a fan of flavored coffees. But when it comes to ice cream a good vanilla is just grand. Some inferior brands of ice cream seem to have decided that vanilla is just a lack of flavor. But good vanilla ice cream can stand up to any chocolate fudge ripple.

      • I come from a southern family where we made everything ourselves, including ice-cream, and so my quest has been to find vanilla ice cream that tastes like my Dad, who used real vanilla extract, use to make. One brand comes really close “Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla”. It also comes in a “Lite” version with 7% Total Fat. Both Regular and Lite taste great. Guess it makes sense since the company is in Texas.

        • I actually tried to make vanilla ice cream that was really vanilla. It came out pretty well, except we discovered you can’t put in fruit without crushing in first or it turns into frozen rocks. I’ve never seen Blue Bell and Breyer’s vanilla bean is the best I’ve found. My husband is lactose intolerant, so we tend to wind up buying frozen yogurt, which he can eat. But I’ll keep an eye out for this one. A small container for me would be nice. AFTER the snow melts.
