@artkavanagh I think the association is with vanilla ice cream, taken to be the most basic flavour (English is not my first language, so this expression was enigmatic to me too, as it doesn't exist in Italian). I personally don't have any mental image associated with saying something is "vanilla", just a 100% conceptual reference.
