there are two reasons this is interesting: 1) how do they pack newtons? 2) how, and how often, do newtons become rotated like this?

A common misconception exists about Mexican and Caribbean vanilla. People rave to me about the fabulous deal they got on a giant bottle of vanilla extract in Mexico, Haiti, Guadeloupe, etc. Further, it has such a unique flavor and it's stronger than any vanilla they've ever used. Well, sorry folks, it isn't pure vanilla extract. In fact, chances are the product in the big bottle is synthetic.

Because vanilla originally came from Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, and because, at one time Mexico produced the world's finest vanilla, it follows that it would still be true. In fact, nearly all of the so-called vanilla extract coming from these countries is synthetic!
