One of the best plain vanilla custards I've had so far. It was good out of the package, but like the other custard flavors from Marble Valley Vapors, it definite tastes better after steeping for a few weeks. I let this one steep for about 4 weeks. It darkened up after about 2 weeks, but I gave it a little extra time. Compared to when it was fresh, the custard is far creamier when it has steeped. I could tell they use a lot of flavoring in these custards, as it is strong custard notes with a balance of vanilla. It has a neat effect of feeling like it coats your tongue the same way eating custard would. I will definitely be buying bigger bottles.
