Almond essence is made using artificial flavorings and is therefore much cheaper compared to almond extract.

Whichever you decided to use, for the best results, always add cautiously.
How to Select
Synthetic almond flavouring is widely available, but larger supermarkets stock real almond essence, which is far superior. Hence, don't compromise on the quality and the taste. Pay for a good brand and verify on the dates stamped - manufacturing and expiry.
