The other day I was at Trader Joe's I picked up what I thought was vanilla extract, and when I came home I saw it is actually called "Pure Vanilla Flavor." I've always known that "Imitation Vanilla Extract" was a no-no and that you should always go for actual extract, but is "flavor" essentially the same thing as the imitation extract, under a different name?
