This strong pineapple flavor is a crucial ingredient in many of my mixes! Add to banana and vanilla bean to make banana split. To that combo add a little cherry and you have fruit cocktail (I want to add pear to see if I can make my "fruit cocktail" concoction even better)! Add Vanilla bean, cherry and coconut...fruit ambrosia! Pineapple and Vanilla Bean makes pineapple upside down cake (hmm. I wonder if a bit of cherry would make a better pineapple upside down cake? There are others, like the vanilla bean, coconut, pineapple I was mixing before you came out with Pina Colada. You can mellow any of the mixes by taking out the cherry. Point is, can't be without this strong pineapple flavor!
