It just doesn't taste like I though it would. Sorry
Tasted this cherry extract along with the McCormick's flavor. Of course, there was no comparison. The Native Vanilla cherry extract actually does have a very concentrated cherry taste, whereas the McCormick's has somewhat of a cherry smell but no discernable cherry taste. The taste of another cherry extract I bought over the Internet (at about half the price of the Native Vanilla extract) was comparable to that of the Native Vanilla. However, I do like the taste of my soft drinks with the Native Vanilla extract more than the taste with the other brand added.
Cherry Extract is a great product for many uses. Taste is wonderful.
