Watkins products...

Anybody out there use Watkins products?

We use the mentholadum, Fresh wash, vanilla, soy sauces and the soup mixes. Oh, also the candles, room spray and the seasonings.

What's your favorite one?

We use the Vanilla and the Medicated Ointment. I have tried the Black Pepper, Cinnamon and a couple of other spices, but I usually end up buying from the grocery store, it's just more convenient.

High quality products, love that Medicated Ointment!

Oh, I love Watkins products! We use the mentholadum, vanilla, white vanilla, spices, flavorings, chicken and beef soup base, soups mixes and pudding mixes.

I really like the soup bases, they make are great for making gravies. They don't have as much salt as what you buy in the stores.

I also like the soup bases, I really liked the tomato base they used to have, but no longer carry. I sure wish they would bring that back.

Watkins Products


You all are making my day! I have sold Watkins products for eons just because I love the products so much, and it always makes me feel good to know that others like them, too.

Ronsan, I was wondering if you had any recipes from Watkins using the Sherry extract? If you do, you can pm me. Thanks.

The vanilla has always been a favorite, but now I find how great the Grapeseed Liquid Spice is for flavoring. First I tried the original and now I have the garlic. The original can be used in place of olive oil in a lot of things. Many of my other spices are Watkins such as paprika, pepper, etc.

Grapeseed Oil

I use the Grapeseed Oil almost exclusively now as it is considered the "heart healthy" oil. Not only does it have a much higher flash point (meaning the point at which it begins to smoke), but works so well in so many other applications. I also use it in place of other oils in baking such as in cake batters and tried a half and half combination of Grapeseed Original and Grapeseed Garlic and Parsley in a pizza crust mix calling for 2 Tbl. of oil. Worked great!

I have never tried it in a deep fryer, tho, because it would take too much oil and the cost would be prohibitive to my frugal pocketbook. Grapeseed Oil is a quality dipping oil with foccachia bread, too.

The Citrus & Cilantro Grapeseed Oil is magnificent for Mediterranean cooking as well as Mexican.

Glad to know you're enjoying the Grapeseed Oil.
