Spun Sugar vanilla beans--any good?

I visited Spun Sugar in Berkeley today. They are selling Tahitian vanilla beans 5 for $10. That's pretty cheap, but are they any good?

  1. I've actually never tried them, though I do frequent the store. I'm very happy with West Berkeley Bowl's vanilla beans - very fragrant, pliable and fresh. 4 for $4, in a jar on the bulk weight station counter.
