Bah! First time I saw VanillaJS was when I was learning JS for the first time. Wasn't that confusing. Vanilla is used to mean bland/unmodified across industries (real vanilla taste is delicious and complex though!). It was clearly meant to be a joke, and it is funny. Some people are too serious 🤷‍♀️
