??? - Best Source for Chocolate Batons w/ natural vanilla?

Hello:

With the weather cooling down, I'm looking to purchase some chocolate batons for winter pastry baking. In the past, I've purchased the smaller bags of batons from KAF, but this year I want to scale up and purchase a larger quantity.

In my searches, I've come across a few options, but I've noticed that when the ingredients are listed, most have VANILLIN (artificial vanilla flavor).

Does anyone have a source of chocolate batons that contain natural vanilla flavor?

Thanks in advance.

We don't use batons but we use a lot of chocolate and Callebaut chocolates use natural vanilla.  I would imagine when they make batons they would use natural vanilla as well.

Like I said we don't use Batons but use Callebaut 815NV and 823NV both of which are made with natural vanilla and also a little bit of the white chocolate (cocoa butter based) can't think of the proper name.  We buy most of our chocolate from Qzina Foods they have locations in both Canada and the U.S.
