  1. This looks delicious, but I admit the calories are scary. Is vanilla essence the same thing we would call vanilla extract or flavoring here in the States? #SENISAL Michele

    • Hi Michele. This is a treat and although the calories are high you should treat yourself from time to time. You’re correct on the vanilla it’s the same thing.
