rave for CVS imit vanilla extract

Quite surprised when Cooks Illustrated rated CVS premium vanilla extract very high (#2 overall) out of all real and imitation vanilla extracts. I am a firm believer in "natural" flavorings and will use real fruit zests, oils, etc and have paid the extra money for the Madagascar vanilla extract. Picked up the 8 oz. for 99 cents CVS "premium imitation vanilla extract with natural flavorings". I used in in brownies, delicious. Used it in a creme anglaise at the end after the custard cooked, delicious. Very impressed. Expensive is not always better I will continue to use this product.
