"People think I'm nuts," she added. "I tell them, 'Oh, but it's beavers; it smells really good.'"

One wonders, reasonably, just how she knows this.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Here I've been avoiding "artificial" vanilla foods and going for the "natural" flavors!  Ewwwwww!

I don't really want to ask this question but here goes:

If a beaver's castor sacs contain vanilla and it goes into our food, then where do we get the vanilla bean?

I think the article said the beaver butt goo tasted and smelled LIKE vanilla, the actual real vanilla bean (which is where real vanilla comes from) actually comes from an orchid plant.

Don't want to know how this was discovered or who was the first to stick his nose into a beaver's behind.   :whistle:

Speaking of "dirty jobs" - I wouldn't want to be the guy that has to "extract" this product.

Those with weak stomaches should never look into how any of their food if produced, no matter how seemingly innocuous that food is.  Consider what the ground flour used to make your bread almost certainly contains, things such as tons of bugs that got caught up in the wheat as it was reaped and siloed, and then ground right along with the wheat itself.  Quite honestly, however, once it's been cooked, it's nothing more than a little extra helping of protein.
