The French are good at a lot of things, you know?

Bread, chocolate, art and literature, the Statue of Liberty (thanks, guys!), science (way to go Marie Curie!), the list goes on and on.

Where would we be without our French brothers and sisters? Not drinking pasteurized milk, watching movies, scuba diving, driving around on inflatable tires.

And, of course French vanilla, though French vanilla isn’t from France. (Most vanillas are named from their country of origin.) It’s a way the French made vanilla ice cream. Richer, caramelized, and with egg-based custards. Whatever the reason, again I thank France for their contribution to the wonderful taste of French vanilla.
