Janet, I've used both and didn't think it was worth the extra cost. Same

with vanilla bean paste. I heard--and I'm kind of hoping it's not true--that the entire pod is ground up to make the paste...not just the precious seeds. I paid $26 for the N-M paste and while it gives a nice speckle-ly appearance, the flavor wasn't that enhanced from the basic N-M vanilla. And I was using it in sugar cookies and shortbread, where there weren't other flavors to detract.

So..unless you are making something very pure, like panna cotta, I'd say it's not worth it. Just add a splash more vanilla.
