Vanilla extract tastes of vanilla bean... Mint extract is minty... Why are hazelnut and almond extracts so unlike
hazelnuts and almonds?

Snacking on almonds in the kitchen. Love almonds. Sniffing almond extract. Smells fantastic. Not seeing (smelling or tasting) the connection. Is it a different variety of almond? (And if so, why don't they sell those?)
Love hazelnut flavor (yum Frangelico), but it doesn't taste much like hazelnuts either. Sorry if this is silly, but I'm not so creative with the Google keywords. But you guys are smart! Please help!
