Got this to use in a Paula Deen strawberry cake I was baking for someone else. Everyone seemed to like it; especially in the frosting. No one reported bitterness. I do not eat wheat or milk, so I could not taste the cake to tell how good it was. But everyone seemed happy with it.

So far I have only been able to try this once. And it does smell like Strawberries. I thought the drops would taste stronger than they do, but they were less powerful and dominant in flavor than I expected from an essence. However, it has yet to be clarified if it was the combination of my chocolate icing and the strawberry flavoring that gave the result or if it is a general tender taste...
