Ronald Reginald’s Premium Vanillas were developed by one of the country’s foremost authorities on ice cream and flavorings, Warren LeRuth. In addition to his other achievements, Chef LeRuth is the founder of the renowned LeRuth’s restaurant in New Orleans. He began producing his own vanillas in 1957, and he eventually sold them under the LeRuth’s label. Today, Ronald Reginald’s products reflect Chef LeRuth’s commitment to excellence, and they have benefited from his experience and the time he invested in them.
In 1985, Chef LeRuth sold the business to his longtime friend and associate, Ronnie Sciortino. Ronnie’s involvement with fine foods began with his mother’s esteemed catering business, Regina Queen of Caterers, and he later served as the executive chef at several of New Orleans’ finest restaurants, including Stephen & Martin’s and Que Sera.
Our pledge to manufacture the finest flavors is uncompromised. Our high standards are maintained throughout the entire vanilla process-from bean selection, through cold processing, to slow aging. These standards result in a Pure Vanilla Extract of the highest quality and a noticeably superior taste. The Ronald Reginald’s difference is our commitment to do whatever it takes to produce the finest tasting vanillas and flavorings!
