Scene: Safeway. Steve and I are contemplating the vanilla selection.
Steve: Which one?
Me: I don’t know, the organic is probably better, but it’s also sixteen dollars.
Mustachioed Clerk (sotto voce): Have you considered Aisle Twelve?
Me (blinking): No…what’s on Aisle Twelve?
M. C. (with evident satisfaction): Mexican vanilla.

Oh *hells* yeah! We used to *send people to Mexico* for Mexican vanilla! Tell me you considered Aisle Twelve.

We did, indeed.
He also told us that he made his own by infusing vanilla beans in vodka.
