Umm this sounds like a bad idea. No thank you scientists, please keep your literal trash vanilla to yourselves.  :X

Heelys:
If it's not bad for us and doesn't produce more waste than it saves, then I'm all for it. It's good to cut down on landfills, and I've heard of worse sources for sweet flavorings.

"About 85% of vanillin is currently synthesised from chemicals derived from fossil fuels," according to the study.

So currently unless you are spending the money to buy 100% authentic plant-derived vanilla (and you would know), the current version is a flavour of dinosaur juice.  Yum.
