They are usually called Vanilla Flavor, are made in a glycerin base, and usually contain vanilla bean extracts. They provide a reasonable non-alcoholic solution for flavoring foods and beverages.

What is Fat Bloom?

“It is not uncommon for a chocolate bar or box of chocolate confections to be opened and the chocolate is no longer shiny. Instead, it looks as if the chocolate has spoiled and is covered with white or light brown colored splotches. While it may look as if the chocolate has spoiled, the chocolate is in fact edible.

What has occurred is that the chocolate has undergone a process called “bloom.” There are two main types of chocolate bloom. The first is sugar bloom and the second fat bloom. Each has different causes. However, no matter the type of bloom, the surface of the chocolate will become unappealing and will have a mottled or hazy look. If fat bloom is present, it is likely that the texture of the chocolate may have changed from when it was originally molded.

Fat bloom typically appears as lighter color spots on the chocolate. As the name implies, the bloom is composed of fat, in this case, the naturally occurring fat that comes from the cacao bean — cocoa butter.

When discussing the reasons for fat bloom, it is important to note that when
cocoa butter hardens, it forms crystals. Some of the crystals are stable, but other crystals are not and will actually change form over time. During chocolate manufacturing, a process called tempering is used to ensure that only stable crystals form, while the chocolate hardens. Fat bloom is caused by the interaction of the various types of crystals or the tempering process (or lack thereof).”
